3M™ Clean-Trace™ Positive Controls for Surface and Water ATP Tests
Designed to enhance your hygiene monitoring procedures, positive controls for 3M Clean-Trace ATP Hygiene Systems provide assurance that your 3M hygiene monitoring reagents and instruments are being stored and used correctly to ensure reliable results. Positive controls allow you to demonstrate due diligence and assures the operator is using the correct method.
3M™ Clean-Trace™ Surface Positive Control (ATP10)
The test kit contains 10 ready to use reagent vials. Each vial contains 3.0 ng or 5 x10-12 moles of ATP and 1 mg of protein (Bovine Serum Albumin). A pre-moistened swab device is used to swab the ATP/Protein pellet and interior of the 3M™ Clean-Trace™ Surface Positive Control vial. Clean-Trace Surface devices are then activated and measured as per the device instructions.
The signal obtained should be above a specified level, which indicates that both the reagents and (in the case of the ATP tests) instrument are operating correctly.
The unique format of this product provides the user with an ideal and convenient method of assuring that all components used during testing are operating correctly and that the operator is using the correct method. Positive controls are used in conjunction with the 3M™ Clean-Trace Hygiene Monitoring System, to assess that both reagents and instruments (if required) are operating satisfactorily and have been stored and used correctly.
3M™ Clean-Trace™ Water Positive Control (LWATP10)
Each test contains a predetermined amount of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) or protein to provide you with a predictable result if the reagents are used and have been stored correctly.
If the result is above the required threshold you know your testing is effective. With minimal time and effort, you can be confident that your testing procedures are effective, helping to guard against surface or water contamination
