Richard Guth has acquired several U.S. and foreign patents in this science. His focus was directed to more perfect methods for accomplishing greater accuracy and precision using breath test simulators and laboratory standards. Guth simulators and certified alcohol reference solutions have been accepted as the standard of the industry worldwide. They are approved by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and are listed in the U.S. Federal Register Conforming Products List (CPL). All major manufacturers of evidential breath analyzers have accepted and are using Guth simulators.
