About ATP Testing in relation to
If desired by the contractor or the client, analytical methods can be used to supplement the visual inspection.
A useful process that provides on-site results is a swab collection of surface samples using an adenosine triphosphate (ATP) meter. ATP meters do not identify viral contaminants since those organisms do not produce ATP.
However, the overall reduction in biological contaminants is an excellent surrogate measure of cleanliness since selective cleaning of specific contaminants is impossible (eg – it is not possible to clean bacteria and leave behind just the virus). Given the ability of ATP to measure general biological residue, representative testing using an ATP meter can be conducted if additional assurance of project effectiveness is necessary.
Sample results should be compared to guidelines for hygiene surface testing provided by the manufacturer of the specific ATP meter. Another approach to documenting the effectiveness of the process is to utilize the ATP meter on a number of representative touch points prior to the start of cleaning and again at the end to compare the level of reduction that was achieved.
