Our Work

We strive to help people make informed decisions, and work hard to provide the industry’s most accurate, innovative, and affordable ways to monitor their blood alcohol content (BAC). We are committed to offering reliable ways for people to learn how alcohol affects their bodies, and to building awareness about far-reaching consequences of alcohol consumption and impaired driving.

Our History

In 2001 a senior in Economics at University of Pennsylvania conceived of and began BACtrack at a time when breathalyzers were only for law enforcement, and used only when it was too late. Keith Nothacker drove to California with a plan: change how the world drinks by showing them the numbers. He focused exclusively on breathalyzers and created consistent, reliable, technologically-advanced products to build BACtrack into a trusted brand now sold in 25 countries.

From there, we’ve built success with an unwavering focus on accuracy and reliability
