Sanitation/Hygiene (ATP) Tests | Checking surface and rinse water hygiene

The PocketSwab Plus rapid ATP (adenosine triphosphate) swab is room-temperature stable, self-contained, single service test that enables total surface hygiene verification in only 5 seconds, allowing real-time corrective action. Used by the food processing, pharma and healthcare industries, the PocketSwab Plus gives managers an objective tool for monitoring sanitation practices and hygiene control. ATP testing rapidly verifies a surface is clean so workers can safely proceed with food production or providing clean rooms for patient admission.


Charm's WaterGiene ATP swab is used to test the sanitation of water, including CIP water, rinse waters, and cooling water. WaterGiene measures water cleanliness in 20 seconds by measuring total ATP. High ATP levels indicate that microorganisms, food, and other biologicals are present in the water.

AllerGiene is an ATP-based allergen control test designed to prevent cross-contact from allergenic food soil on process equipment. It measures ATP  at low levels as an indicator for the presence of food on wet-cleaned surfaces or rinse waters. Data is collected track/trended for HACCP documentation and food safety/quality audit purposes.
