Hygiene and Sanitation Monitoring

Good sanitation practices is almost synonymous with safe food, but how can you ensure your consumers that your food is safe? How clean is clean? General sanitation with the use of disinfectants and cleaners is not enough. It should also require the utilization of technologically-advanced sanitation systems and test kits for verification of cleanliness and good practices of manufacturers and food handlers.

A comprehensive hygiene and sanitation program leaves nothing to chance. We could help you in ensuring that your cleaning program is efficient and effective through advanced technologies such as the ATP detection system and protein residue test kits. To learn more about these, check our AccuPoint® Advanced ATP System, Accuclean® Advanced Protein Testing Swabs, and CleanDo® Protein Residue Swabbing Kit below.

The First AOAC-approved Sanitation Verification System

Adenosine triphosphate (ATP), present in all cells be it viable or non-living, is a good indicator of the presence of microorganisms and organic matter.  ATP on a surface indicates a potential source for dangerous microscopic bacteria, such as E. coli, Salmonella, Listeria, yeast and molds, and others that can accelerate the spoilage of food.

An economical, fast, and accurate way to monitor cleanliness by measuring ATP is through the AccuPoint® Advanced System. This system utilizes ATP chemiluminescence to determine the cleanliness of surfaces and rinse water samples. It is also the first ATP system evaluated and approved by two independent, highly recognized international institutions, NSF International and AOAC (AOAC-RI PTM #091601), for its accuracy and consistency.

Cost-effective Solution for Protein Detection

Another measure to determine good sanitation practices is the detection of protein residue. As proteins perform important functions for bacteria, detection of these residues indicate inadequate sanitation practices and the presence of a potential nutrient source for microorganisms.
