Hygiena’s UltraSnap Surface ATP Test received Performance Tested Method certification from the AOAC-RI on the new EnSURE Touch luminometer, demonstrating the systems’ sensitivity, reliability and robust operation, the company said. The certification is a modification of Hygiena’s existing AOAC-RI certification of the UltraSnap using the EnSURE luminometer.
Data submitted to the AOAC demonstrates the system to have a high level of sensitivity with a limit of detection of 1.28 femtomoles of ATP and high degree of consistency and accuracy.
The EnSURE Touch is a next-generation ATP monitoring system that collects, analyzes and reports data from multiple quality tests such as, water quality, indicator microorganisms, and process indicators (residual enzyme activity). The system provides a multi-functional tool for monitoring quality and safety parameter in food safety, healthcare and other industries.
Incorporating key design features and customization options, EnSURE Touch is easily set up for industries like food and beverage manufacturing, healthcare, food service, hospitality, and many more, the company said. EnSURE Touch is accompanied by the latest version of Hygiena’s SureTrend Data Analysis Software, SureTrend Cloud. The updated software is available in a cloud-based format and enables users to monitor, track, and trend testing results across one or multiple facilities, and easily configure one or hundreds of monitoring systems from a single SureTrend Cloud account.
“We are delighted that our newest luminometer, the EnSURE Touch, has been certified and independently shown to perform as well as the original EnSURE System,” said Hygiena CSO Martin Easter. “The EnSURE Touch not only represents a major improvement for ATP hygiene monitoring systems but has additional applications for the rapid detection of other contaminants.”
