Sanitation/Hygiene (ATP) Tests

Sanitation is integral to food safety, to healthcare, and other industries. In a food processing facility, undesired, microscopic substances can change the appearance, taste, and safety of food. Likewise, in healthcare facilities, undesired microorganisms in patient rooms or on surgical equipment can spread infection.

Charm Sciences provides tests that enable customers to check for cleanliness on the microscopic level in a quick, cost-effective, and objective manner. These tests are performed in seconds and enable immediate remediation if needed.


 

WaterGiene

 

Charm WaterGiene is used to test the sanitation of water, including CIP water, rinse waters, and cooling water. WaterGiene measures water cleanliness in 20 seconds by measuring total ATP. High ATP levels indicate that microorganisms, food, and other biologicals are present in the water.

The Charm FieldSwab ATP swabs enable food safety programs to be implemented outdoors. Like the PocketSwab Plus ATP swab, the FieldSwab rapidly detects ATP (adenosine triphosphate) as a measure of surface cleanliness. This is done by measuring the light units produced when ATP reacts with luciferin/ luciferase. The FieldSwab has a light-blocking cover to prevent interferences from daylight and uses a specially calibrated channel on the novaLUM luminometer.

PocketSwab Plus

The PocketSwab Plus rapid ATP (adenosine triphosphate) swab is room-temperature stable, self-contained, single service test that enables total surface hygiene verification in only 5 seconds, allowing real-time corrective action. The PocketSwab Plus ATP swab is relied on for cleaning verification and validation of sanitation and hygiene practices to help prevent cross-contamination and microbial challenges due to ineffective sanitation procedures. Data is collected track/trended for HACCP documentation and food safety/quality audit purposes.
