Cleaning Swab Test
Swab testing for ATP hygiene monitoring provides accurate and traceable verification of the hygienic status of a surface, which is a key component of a good hygiene program, so, cleaning swab test is important a lot.
The results of the pre and post-clean readings are all digitally recorded and reported in specialist Trend analysis software which provides you with detailed reports for your records and auditing requirements.
Our specialist luminometer measures adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the universal energy molecule found in all animal, plant, bacterial, yeast, and mould cells. Residues, particularly food or organic residue, contain large amounts of ATP.
After cleaning, all sources of ATP should be significantly reduced.
When ATP is brought into contact with a sealed sterile swap. This contains liquid-stable luciferase/luciferin reagent. The luminometer measures the amount of light generated and provides information on the level of contamination in just seconds. The higher the reading, the more contamination present.
