ATP Tests

ATP Testing for Sanitation Verification

Sanitation is integral to food safety, to healthcare, and other industries. In a food processing facility, undesired, microscopic substances can change the appearance, taste, and safety of food. Likewise, in healthcare facilities, undesired microorganisms in patient rooms or on surgical equipment can spread infection.

Charm Sciences provides tests that enable customers to check for cleanliness on the microscopic level in a quick, cost-effective, and objective manner. These tests are performed in seconds and enable immediate remediation if needed.

PocketSwab Plus ATP Swab (Surface Hygiene Verification)

The PocketSwab Plus rapid ATP (adenosine triphosphate) swab is room-temperature stable, self-contained, single service test that enables total surface hygiene verification in only 5 seconds, allowing real-time corrective action. The PocketSwab Plus ATP swab is relied on for cleaning verification and validation of sanitation and hygiene practices to help prevent cross-contamination and microbial challenges due to ineffective sanitation procedures. Data is collected, tracked, and trended for HACCP documentation and food safety audit purposes.

WaterGiene ATP Swab (Water Sanitation Verification)

WaterGiene ATP swab is used to test the sanitation of water, including CIP water, rinse waters, and cooling water. The WaterGiene swab measures water cleanliness in 20 seconds by measuring total ATP. High ATP levels indicate that microorganisms, food, and other biologicals are present in the water.

AllerGiene ATP Swab (Allergen Contol)

AllerGiene ATP swab is an ATP-based allergen control test designed to prevent cross-contact from allergenic food soil on process equipment. It measures ATP (adenosine triphosphate) at low levels as an indicator for the presence of food on wet-cleaned surfaces or rinse waters. The AllerGiene swab is a simple 20-second test with sufficient high sensitivity to allergenic food residues. The swab achieves detections comparable to specific allergen methods — 0.1 to 25 ppm for most of the eight allergen food groups: peanut butter, wheat, soybeans, crustacean (shrimp), milk, tree nuts, egg, and sesame.

FieldSwab ATP Swab (Outdoor Sanitation Monitoring)

FieldSwab ATP swab enables food safety programs to be implemented outdoors. Like the PocketSwab Plus ATP swab, the FieldSwab test rapidly detects ATP (adenosine triphosphate) as a measure of surface cleanliness. This is done by measuring the light units produced when ATP reacts with luciferin/luciferase. The FieldSwab test has a light-blocking cover to prevent interferences from daylight and uses a specially calibrated channel on the novaLUM II-X system.

novaLUM II-X System (Luminometer)

The novaLUM II-X system is a palm sized luminometer that offers superior science for advanced sanitation control. It utilizes a technologically advanced photomultiplier tube (PMT) that amplifies ATP (adenosine triphosphate) allowing detection of lower levels of microbial and organic contamination.
