Advanced BioRecovery Solutions is pleased to offer healthcare, industrial, business and residential Clientele Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) Surface Testing and Biological Indicator (BI) Decontamination Verification Services. Spores, viruses, bacteria, and their protective biofilms can adversely affect health and compromise living area, transport, medical, beverage and food production environments.
ATP Hygiene Monitoring Diagnostics are conducted to measure microbial levels in the compromised indoor environment, pre and post-remediation. The ATP diagnostic is used to rapidly measure actively growing microorganisms through detection of adenosine triphosphate. ATP is a molecule found in and around living cells, and as such it gives a direct measure of biological concentration and health.
ATP is quantified by measuring the light produced through its reaction with the naturally occurring firefly enzyme luciferase using a luminometer. The amount of light produced is directly proportional to the amount of ATP present in the sample. Readings are measured in Relative Light Units (RLU).
|Surface / Application||PASS||FAIL|
|Hospital Public Areas||<50||50+|
|OR & ICU||<10||10+|
|Food Preparation and Catering||<10||10+|
ABS utilizes next generation ATP testing instruments to precisely measure and document ATP levels emitted by biofilms living on surfaces. The detection and analysis of ATP, the universal unit of energy in all living cells, will quickly and accurately determine surface cleanliness.
Established benchmarks representing acceptable ATP ranges are used to determine cleanliness for specific applications. ABS incorporates ATP surface testing in every Biorecovery and Decontamination Scope of Work. These surface tests are used to determine efficacy of the operation. ABS typically achieves ATP values between 0 & 10 RLU.
