The ATP machine and swabs are the perfect tools for rapid validation of your cleaning regime within your work place. Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is an enzyme that is present in all living cells, and an ATP monitoring system can detect the amount of organic matter that remains after cleaning. It works on the principle that organic material will react with an enzyme in the swab to produce light, this is then picked up by the detector and can be stored on the built in computer software to produce a record that can verify the effectiveness of the clean. ( Verification of a CCP is one of the seven HACCP principles)
Adenosine triphosphate, or ATP for short, is the energy currency of life. ATP is a high-energy molecule found in every cell. Its job is to store and supply the cell with needed energy.
