ATP test for the rapid measurement of actively growing microorganisms

The ATP test is a method for the RAPID Quantitative measurement in 2 Minutes of actively growing microorganisms by the detection of adenosine triphosphate, or ATP

ATP is a molecule found in and around living cells and as such is a direct measure of biological concentration and health. ATP is quantified by measuring the light produced by its reaction with the naturally occurring firefly enzyme luciferase using a luminometer. The amount of light produced is directly proportional to the amount of ATP present in the sample.

WHAT IS IT?

This is a complete field kit that allows you to measure the amount of bacteria in the water and on the surface and get the result immediately. The ATP test kits are designed to meet your specific needs: ease of use, speed of measurement, reliability. You only need two reagents, few consumables and a measurement device.

WHAT IS THE USE OF ATP TESTS?

MONITOR

the microbial quality of your water, surfaces or air in real time to predict microbial shifts and prevent control limits from being exceeded.

IDENTIFY

the critical points of your network producing biomass with a sensitive and fast analysis tool.

ACT

quickly in the event of a problem. Take all appropriate measures and remedial action without delay.

OPTIMIZE

their cleaning and disinfection processes to save treatment products and reduce your environmental footprint.
