Self-audit your infection control in an instant

ATP Rapid Hygiene Monitoring is employed for testing clinical staffs, hand washing, cleaning and sterilisation processes and surfaces to ensure that adequate infection control is being maintained.


These tests are extremely important in preventing cross-contamination and ensuring your processes pass compliance. Kikkoman's Rapid Hygiene Monitoring Systems use the ATP+ADP+AMP swab test method. The test area is wiped using the reagent kit LuciPac A3 which combines a reagent and self-contained swab device, after which light is emitted as a result of chemical reaction between luciferase-luciferin-PK-PPDK reagent and ATP+ADP+AMP. The level of luminescence is measured using the Lumitester measuring instrument and the degree of cleanliness is determined based on the amount of ATP+ADP+AMP detected. The degree of contamination is immediately shown as a numerical output, enabling a process of "check and take action" that is not possible using traditional culture methods and thus allow incidents to be prevented before they occur.
