Use AquaSnap™ Free in combination with AquaSnap™ Total to identify the microbial ATP in a water sample. First, test a sample of water using AquaSnap™ Total and record number (total load). Then, use AquaSnap™ Free on the same sample and record this number (free ATP). The difference between AquaSnap™ Total and AquaSnap™ Free provides an indication of the microbial ATP contamination in the sample.
Among the many concerns of an Infection Control department, coordinating with Environmental Services to maintain a clean hospital is critical to preventing healthcare-acquired infections. So how do busy managers ensure that cleaning standards are upheld while keeping a tight budget and managing a growing workload? Objective measurement of surface cleanliness using ATP cleaning verification provides on-the-spot feedback on cleaning effectiveness. Now Infection Control personnel can know how cleaning staff is performing, quantify cleanliness in the healthcare environment, set goals for improvement, and keep everyone cleaning to the same, measurable standard.
