What is ATP testing?

Adenosine Triphosphate, or ATP, is the energy molecule found in all organic material, including bacteria and human tissues, making it a perfect indicator when trying to determine if a healthcare environmental surface is clean or not. Hospitals use ATP cleaning verification systems to rapidly verify patient rooms and medical equipment have been cleaned thoroughly so that rooms may be occupied or equipment can be reused without introducing risk from environmentally transmissible infections.

With an ATP cleaning verification system, (or sometimes referred to as - an ATP hygiene 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. 

Swab, snap, squeeze. It's that easy.

Using UltraSnap surface tests 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. See an instructional video.
