DataMaster DMT

On June 3rd, 2011 in Lansing at the Cooley Law School, Chuck Rathburn and Mary McMurray, two of the nation’s top instructors in breath testing and the DMT will present the basics of breath testing and the specifics of Michigan’s new instrument, the DMT.

You may have read the coverage in the Detroit News regarding the DMTs that are on order by the State of Michigan awaiting the word to be called into service. Here is a brief part of that article, written by Laura Berman:

The Michigan State Police has coughed up $1.4 million for 228 state-of-the-art alcohol breath analyzers since 2008.

So where are they? Three years after a Mansfield, Ohio, company began taking Michigan’s money for a spiffy new fleet of Datamaster DMTs, only 40 machines have been built — and even they haven’t been deployed.
The story of the Datamaster DMTs is a bureaucratic classic: Why will it take almost four years to roll out the $6,500 machines that take minutes to install and practically operate themselves?

Read the entire article.

On June 3, 2011, the legal seminar “Understanding the Mystery of Breath Testing” will be presented in Lansing Michigan. In one day Michigan lawyers will learn about how alcohol works in the body from DUI Guru Patrick Barone; how breath testing works and specifically the new DMT from Chuck Rathburn and Mary McMurray and … how to communicate all this to the jury from Lansing DUI lawyer Mike Nichols.

This 9.5 hour seminar will cover calibration and simulation of the DataMaster DMT, Henry’s Law, Lambert-Beer law, and the basic science of infrared breath testing.

Mr. Rathburn and Ms. McMurray are instructors in breath testing and the datamaster dmt approved by the manufacturer of the instrument, National Patent Analytical Systems (NPAS). This is a can’t miss presentation.
