We are using ATP technology to check the activity level of the treated surface.
The ATP test is a process of rapidly measuring actively growing microorganisms through detection of adenosine triphosphate, or ATP.
ATP is a molecule found in and around living cells, and as such it gives a direct measure of biological concentration and health. ATP is quantified by measuring the light produced through its reaction with the naturally occurring firefly enzyme luciferase using a luminometer. The amount of light produced is directly proportional to the amount of living organisms present in the sample.
The monitoring systems currently are used in food production facilities, state health laboratories, and drug companies. The systems immediately detect the presence or absence of organic material (live or dead) on solid surfaces.
The ATP test is the industry standard for:
- Measure equipment or product sanitation
- Control biological treatment reactors
- Guide biocide dosing programs
- Determine drinking water cleanliness
- Manage fermentation processes
- Assess soil activity
- Determine corrosion / deposit process type
