3M™ Clean-Trace™ Surface ATP Swabs

3M™ Clean-Trace™ Surface ATP is a single-use test that contains a swab for the collection of a sample from a surface. The swab is pre-moistened to aid in sample collection and processing.

Once the test is activated, the chemical reacts with the sample collected on the swab to produce light. The amount of the light produced is proportional to the degree of potential contamination. Measurement of the light requires the use of a 3M™ Clean-Trace™ LM1 Hygiene Monitoring and Management System and the results are displayed in Relative Light Units (RLU). The higher the RLU number, the more contaminated the sample.

With its unique liquid stable enzyme, the test offers superior levels of repeatability. This aspect of its performance and its incredible simplicity means customers throughout the world have put Clean-Trace at the heart of their hygiene monitoring programs.

What is Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP)?

ATP is present in all micro-organisms, plant and animal cells and is the molecule that provides energy for cellular metabolism. ATP provides a marker or indicator of contamination from a biological source.
