Hygiene Control Kits and Reagents
ATP Hygiene Kit HS
is suitable for hygiene control of surfaces and liquids (e.g. rinsing water). Practical dropper bottles makes the kit easy-to-use, even for personel not used to handling pipettes.
Portable Hygiene Laboratory
is an all-inclusive kit enabling the user to measure the hygiene of a surface or a liquid, in under a minute.
is a molecule present in all living cells. It has the function of energy currency in all processes within the cell. measurement is an excellent way of controlling hygiene, as ATP is found in food residues and other biological dirt as well as living cells. Even though a surface might be sterile (sterile=no bacteria are present) there might still be food residues left after cleaning. Such residues maks an excellent environment for airborne bacteria to grow and in a few hours the surface will no longer be sterile. With the ATP Hygiene Kit HS you can determine not only how many living organisms are present, but also the amount of biological dirt.
Portable Hygiene Kit
This kit is intended for determination of ATP on surfaces or in liquids. All living cells contain ATP. When cells die of natural causes, ATP is normally degraded. Cleaning and disinfecting a surface, which has been in contact with biological matter, may leave small amounts of residues containing ATP. Such residues will provide an excellent growth medium for airborne or other microorganisms. Even if the surface is sterile after cleaning and disinfecting, it may contain large numbers of microorganisms within a few hours. Determination of ATP on a surface will tell how much biological contamination was left after cleaning and disinfecting. The kit can also be used for determination of ATP in liquids.
