Science: How ATP sanitation verification systems work

In old-timey terms, today’s modern sanitation verification systems are lickety-split.

But how exactly can a test system instantly produce accurate results showing just how clean or dirty a surface may be?

The science behind the instantly accurate systems stems from the study of fireflies and adenosine triphosphate (ATP) — a molecule that exists in every […]

Comparing the sensitivity of sensors in ATP testing systems

ATP testing has become the standard method for determining the amount of organic residue on food production surfaces after cleaning for sanitation verification. Each ATP testing system uses a chemiluminescent reaction to produce light that is directly proportional to the amount of ATP in the sample. The light is measured by a device called a […]
