3M™ Clean-Trace™ ATP Surface Test UXC100

Surface and surgical instrument test

Biological residues are not visible to the unaided eye thus rendering the current visual inspection method for cleaning monitoring inadequate to the task. Adenosine triphosphate (ATP), has been found to be a sensitive indicator molecule for the presence of biological residues due to its universal presence in all living cells (microbes, animal and plant cells). An increase in “dirt” (biological residues) on a surface results in an increase in the amount of ATP present on that surface making ATP an effective marker for the assessment of the hygienic status of an environmental surface.
