What Is an ATP used for? 

You can measure the effectiveness of your cleaning process by testing surfaces for Adenosine triphosphate (ATP). ATP is a molecule found in all living cells and it is responsible for transferring and storing energy. ATP levels act as an indicator of whether your environment has been properly cleaned. 

  1. Control biological treatment reactors. 
  2. Guide biocide dosing programs. 
  3. Determine drinking water cleanliness. 
  4. Manage fermentation processes. 
  5. Assess soil activity. 
  6. Determine corrosion / deposit process type. 
  7. Measure equipment or product sanitation. 

ATP Solutions 

There are three core components to all ATP solutions that determine overall performance: the instrument or luminometer, the bioluminescence chemistry, and the test device design. The Hygiene™ ATP Monitoring System combines a state-of-the-art photodiode with superior liquid-stable chemistry and the patented Snap valve test device to produce the most accurate ATP Monitoring System available. But don’t take our word for it, check out the data produced by a highly-acclaimed third-party laboratory. 

ATP test devices 

Surface ATP Test 

Ultra-Snap™ is a user-friendly, all-in-one ATP sampling test used with Hygiene™ luminometers. This pen-sized sample collection device is easy to use, small, and environmentally friendly. In addition, Ultra-Snap™ uses a unique liquid-stable reagent providing superior accuracy, longer-lasting signal strength, and more reproducible results. 

High-Sensitivity Surface ATP Test 

Super Snap™ is 4x more sensitive than Ultra Snap™. It’s capable of detecting extremely low levels of ATP, making it perfect for supporting stringent SOPs, including allergen cross-contamination prevention. And, like all Hygiene™ swabs, it’s extremely easy to use. Just swab, snap and squeeze. Get results in seconds, take immediate corrective actions and get back to production. 

Water ATP Test 

Aqua Snap™ Total measures both microbial ATP (living cells and particulate matter) and Free ATP (non-microbial or dead cells) in solution. The device contains a detergent to release ATP that is bound to microbial or organic matter and inside microbes. Aqua Snap is easy to use, economical and gives real-time results. The specifically designed dipper tip collects 100 µl of water ensuring consistent sample collection. Use Aqua Snap Total in combination with Aqua Snap to determine microbial ATP in a water sample. 

Water ATP Test | Free 

Aqua Snap™ Free measures non-microbial ATP (aka dead cells) in a solution.  Use Aqua Snap Free in combination with Aqua Snap™ Total to identify the microbial ATP in a water sample. First, test a sample of water using Aqua Snap Total and record number (Total load). Then, use Aqua Snap Free on the same sample and record this number (Free ATP). The difference between Total and Free provides an indication of the microbial contamination in the sample.
