ATP (adenosine triphosphate) is a chemical compound found in all living matter, including bacteria, food debris, yeast and mold. If you find ATP, you find a potential source for dangerous microscopic bacteria, such as E. coli, Salmonella and Listeria, as well as yeast and mold, and other bacteria that accelerate the spoilage of food. In very simple terms, ATP sanitation monitoring systems detect the amount of organic matter that remains on food contact surfaces, in liquids, or on pipes, tanks, etc., after a company has completed its cleaning efforts. In just a matter of seconds, ATP systems enable production staff to identify areas that may need to be re-cleaned prior to the start of the production cycle. Thus, ATP system is more efficient and effective than traditional methods such as visual inspection and microbial swabbing.
