Covid-19 & ATP Cleaning Verification

How ATP Cleaning Verification can help!

In times like these, knowledge is power!

How Hygiena ATP Cleaning Verification Products work:

  • Hygiena's cleaning verification products can tell you in as little as 15 seconds if a surface has been cleaned properly using ATP.

  • ATP is an energy molecule found in all plant, animal and microbial cells. It fuels metabolic processes such as celluar reproduction, muscle contraction, plant photosynthesis, respiration in fungi, and fermentation in yeast. All organic matter(living and once-living) contains ATP. This includes food, bacteria, mold and other microorganisms.
  • Hygiena ATP testing devices contain a natural enzyme found in fireflies. This enzyme, called luciferase, produces a simple bioluminescence (light producing) reaction when it comes in contact with ATP. Using this technology, the ATP meter can measure extremely low levels of ATP collected with testing devices. Measuring the amount of bioluminescence from an ATP reaction provides an excellent indication of surface cleanliness, because the quantity of light generated by the reaction is directly proportional to the amount of ATP present in the sample.

    How Hygiena ATP Cleaning Verification Products can be used:

  • To track cleaning efforts and verify that they have been effective.

  • To verify that high-touch areas in your facility have been cleaned properly.

  • To verify that hand washing has been conducted effectively.

  • To verify that common areas, meeting rooms and offices have been cleaned according to standard.

Relevant Hygiena Product Information:

  • ATP systems do not detect viruses

  • Hygiena does not produce a virus test

  • Performing ATP Cleaning Verification does not guarantee removal of viruses on surfaces

  • ATP Cleaning Verification should be used in conjunction with CDC recommendations and guidelines
