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.



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.

Used by the food processing, pharma and healthcare industries, the PocketSwab Plus gives managers an objective tool for monitoring sanitation practices and hygiene control. The PocketSwab Plus rapidly verifies a surface is clean so workers can safely proceed with food production or providing clean rooms for patient admission.

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.

Water quality is measured by dipping and twirling a WaterGiene swab in the water sample or by swabbing a rinsed surface.

WaterGiene is used by food processing plants to test process water, pipes, and tanks/silos. Hospitals and surgical centers use WaterGiene to verify equipment is clean.
