Hygiena ATP Testing

Features

What are ATP Meters?

ATP Meters measure adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which is an indicator of biological contamination.

All living organisms — including bacteria — produce ATP, so measuring it gives an indication of whether a surface or area has been contaminated with bacteria.

The meters work in conjunction with a luminometer, which exposes a sample to a specific enzyme and measures the reaction between the sample and the enzyme. The reaction will create light and the luminometer will measure how much light the sample emits. The intensity of the light emitted is proportional to the amount of ATP present. Stronger light indicates heavier ATP contamination than weaker light.

Types of Meters
Hygiena has ATP tests for various uses.

Surface
These tests are roughly the size of a marker and work with a luminometer to test for ATP on both soft and hard surfaces.

Liquid
Also about the size of a marker, these tests are specifically designed to test for ATP in water and other liquids.

Universal
Even if you have a luminometer from a brand other than Hygiena, you can find a Hygiena ATP test that will fit that brand’s luminometers
