I have examined the electronic files generated during calibration and feel the additional unprinted data that they contain is not necessary to be preserved. Most of the unprinted data lists the times of calibration, linearity, solution change, and retrieval date. Even though the times are not captured on the printouts, the dates of these operations are listed[,] which is sufficient. The only other pieces of data that are not captured are the software version (NJ3.11) and tolerance (5% and 0.005)[,] which do not change[,] and the record type[,] which is not needed. The reliability of the Alcotest and the review of Alcotest results is not affected by the deletion of these files.
We do not address what relief defendant could obtain if Dräger still possessed the test data, but failed to comply.
Pursuant to N.J.R.E. 201(b)(4), we take judicial notice that Dr. Baum presented this opinion to the Court.
