Surface ATP Test
UltraSnap™ is a user-friendly, all-in-one ATP sampling test used with Hygiena luminometers. This pen-sized sample collection device is easy to use, small, and environmentally friendly. In addition, UltraSnap uses a unique liquid-stable reagent providing superior accuracy, longer-lasting signal strength, and more reproducible results.
What is ATP testing?
Adenosine Triphosphate, or ATP, is the energy molecule found in all living things, making it a perfect indicator when trying to determine if a surface is clean or not. Food and beverage processors use ATP systems to rapidly verify surfaces have been cleaned thoroughly so that new product runs are not contaminated by prior product runs, and to ensure biofilms are not developing on the surface that could affect quality.
With an ATP hygiene monitoring system, (or sometimes referred to as – an ATP sanitation monitoring system), ATP is brought into contact with Hygiena’s unique liquid-stable reagent in the test device. Light is then emitted in direct proportion to the amount of ATP present in the sample, providing information on the level of contamination in seconds.
A clean start each day.
A clean production environment is a key component to producing safe, quality foods. By incorporating ATP monitoring into preoperative equipment inspection and changeover cleaning verification, quality personnel can confirm cleanliness in seconds. Your facility is only as clean as you start, so it’s best to start the day right.
Swab, snap, squeeze. It’s that easy.
Using UltraSnap couldn’t be easier. The three step process for collecting a sample,
activating the device, and mixing the sample is so easy, anyone can do it.
UltraSnap contains liquid-stable chemistry in the patented Snap-Valve™ bulb. This unique chemistry and design eliminates the need to reconstitute lyophilized pellets, enabling consistent and accurate results
Affordability to fit any size budget.
Patented design and uniquely formulated chemistry gives UltraSnap superior performance at a price that can fit into any quality assurance program. When implementing an ATP program, decisions need to be made about the amount of testing necessary to accurately monitor the production environment, but also meet budget allocation. Hygiena’s luminometers and UltraSnap testing device have been specifically designed to meet testing needs as well as budget constraints.
