When it comes to understanding body armor there can be confusion over which type of body armor protects against which type of ammunition.  Understanding the NIJ 0101.06 armor protection levels is clearly explained.  The term "Bullet Proof" is a widely used term that is inaccurate and paints a picture that it cannot be penetrated.  Any body armor has the potential to be penetrated.  There are various levels of protection that must be adhered to in the law enforcement world.  The (Justice Technology Information Center) JTIC Understanding NIJ 0101.06 Armor Protection Levels is a snapshot of the projectile threats and classification of body armor related to these threats.  Here is NIJ complete info on Body Armor

Testing for alcohol with Drager tubes is efficient and inexpensive.  Alcohol testing equipment may be too impractical to take into the field, so that is when Drager Alcotest Tubes are perfect for mobile alcohol testing.  These tubes are quick to use and give immediate results for traffic safety use, correctional facilities and industrial use.  When testing for alcohol, it is recommended that the test is given at least fifteen minutes after the last drink is consumed.  Immediately after consumption of alcohol, a high alcohol content is present in the mucous membranes of the mouth and throat.  This mouth alcohol level would provide a false alcohol level if testing is done within fifteen minutes of consumption. 
To perform the test for alcohol with the Drager tubes, the tips of the tube are opened and the tube is connected to the the breathing bag.  The person being tested exhales into the tube and inflates the bag.  If alcohol vapor is present in the exhaled breath, the yellow indication layer turns green.
Alcotest CH00222: When the green discoloration zone reaches the annular ring, it can assumed that the alcohol concentration corresponds to 0.5‰ B.A.C.
Alcotest CH00199: When the green discoloration zone reaches the annular ring, it can assumed that the alcohol concentration corresponds to 0.8‰ B.A.C.
