We adopt Hygiena SystemSURE Plus™ Luminometer to perform the ATP Cleaning Verification. The device gives a numeric measurement of organic material (ATP) on a surface, measured in relative light units (RLU). The more ATP presents on a surface, the higher the RLU measurement. This method is recommended by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
The detection of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP), the universal unit energy in all living cells, determines if surfaces are truly clean. For those sensitive areas like homes, schools, nurseries and, health institutions (i.e. clinics), ATP Cleaning Verification provides a quick way to detect microorganisms. By collecting samples from the environments, and measure the ATP level, it gives a direct measure of biological concentration in the environments.
