3M™ Clean-Trace™ Water - Free ATP is a single-use test device that contains sample collection rings for the collection of an aqueous sample.
The sample collection rings aid in the collection of a liquid sample for measuring free adenosine triphosphate (ATP) in solution.
Upon activation of the test device, reagent in the cuvette of the test device reacts with ATP collected on the sample collection rings to produce light. The intensity of the light is proportional to the amount of ATP. Measurement of the light requires the use of a 3M™ Clean-Trace™ NG Luminometer and the results are displayed in Relative Light Units (RLU). Not intended for consumer use.
The difference between 3M™ Clean-Trace™ Water-Free ATP test results and 3M™ Clean-Trace™ Water Plus - Total ATP test results done on the same sample indicate the amount of intact microbial cells in the sample.
With 3M Clean-Trace Water-Free ATP, monitoring for contamination is simple with real-time results. Quick detection and confirmation allows immediate corrective action to take place. This product can be used with minimal training to monitor for cleaning effectiveness.
