What is ATP?
Adenosine TriPhosphate (ATP) is an energy moleculefound in all organic matter including mold and bacteria. The presence of ATP on a surface indicates that the surface has not been adequately cleaned and has the potential to harbour and support bacterial growth. The residue may also contain hazardous material including potential allergens; therefore, ATP is an ideal indicator of surface cleanliness.
Hygiena SystemSURE™ Plus and Ultrasnap™
One way to quickly and accurately test for the presence of ATP is by using the Hygiena Ultrasnap testing device. This all-in-one, easy-to-use device uses a swab moistened with a cationic agent and a unique liquid-stable reagent to test surfaces and provide unprecedented accuracy and reproducibility.
Testing and measuring is done in five easy steps. The unit will return a result in 15 seconds measured in relative light units (RLU). The higher the reading, the higher the level of ATP contamination on the tested surface.
