Among the its many resources, Fiandach & Fiandach owns a National Patent Analytical Systems DataMaster™. This machine is the most widely used breath testing machine in the State of New York, and is the machine of choice among New York municipal police agencies. It was chosen by the New York State Bureau of Municipal Police to replace the State's aging fleet of ancient Breathalyzer 900 and 900A's. Fiandach & Fiandach was the first firm in the State of New York to own such a device. To see our DataMaster in operation click here (for dialup, click here).
Further, Mr. Fiandach has been factory trained on the device since before its introduction in New York
The importance of owning the machine which is actually used by the police, cannot be overstated. Owning the machine allows Fiandach & Fiandach to do independent testing under conditions replicating those under which a client was tested. It allows us to clearly and graphically demonstrate the variety of errors that befall this device.
Since obtaining the device, Mr. Fiandach has given numerous lectures for lawyers and judges across the State of New York on the machine's operating characteristics including live demonstrations of what is arguably the largest single source of error in breath testing generally, the introduction of so-called "mouth alcohol."

Fiandach & Fiandach also maintains a proprietary DataMaster maintenance library which details the repair and maintenance history of over twenty machines used in cases involving Fiandach clients. In conjunction with the Fiandach DataMaster, we are often able to suppress breath test results that would appear damning to the untrained eye.
Presently, Mr. Fiandach is utilizing the machine to test so-called spot accuracy. Spot accuracy is the ability of the machine to provide a correct reading on any single test. Mr. Fiandach is also engaged with a scientific team in attempting to study the effects of gastro-esophageal reflux disease breath testing. This common ailment may result in erroneous readings by permitting the introduction of raw alcohol into the testing procedure.
Most recently, Mr. Fiandach and the Fiandach DataMaster were featured by WROC TV-8 in a two-part feature addressing the effect of alcohol at New York's recently revised .08 level.
