3M Clean-Trace Surface ATP tests, conducted by 3M Microbiology , assess standards of hygiene and cleaning procedures by measuring the amount of adenosine tri-phosphate (ATP) in a sample.
These self-contained swabs are used with the 3M Clean-Trace NG Luminometer, which is a handheld, lightweight instrument with simple menu-driven operation and high data storage capacity for maximum convenience.
This system, together with the powerful 3M Clean-Trace Data Trending Software, enables the user to track the effectiveness of cleaning regimes, to easily identify problem areas and helps to drive continuous improvement in a sanitation programme.
The 3M Clean-Trace Hygiene Monitoring System provides good repeatability and sensitivity; and with results available in just 30 seconds, manufacturers are able to implement immediate corrective actions and proactive sanitation procedures. This can assist manufacturers to reduce the overall sanitation costs.
