AOAC-RI Performance Tested Method Certification modified to include new EnSURE™ Touch Monitoring SystemFebruary 11, 2020
UltraSnap certified to be used with the new EnSURE Touch instrument and is shown to provide low limit of detection, reliable performance
Hygiena’s UltraSnap ATP Test received Performance Tested MethodSM certification from the AOAC-RI on the new EnSURE™ Touch luminometer, demonstrating the system's sensitivity, reliability and robust operation. The certification is a modification of Hygiena’s existing AOAC-RI certification of the UltraSnap using the EnSURE luminometer.
Data submitted to the AOAC demonstrates the system to have a high level of sensitivity with a limit of detection of 1.28 femtomoles of ATP and high degree of consistency and accuracy.
The EnSURE Touch is a next-generation ATP monitoring system that also collects, analyzes and reports data from multiple quality tests such as, water quality, indicator microorganisms, and process indicators (residual enzyme activity). The system provides a multi-functional tool for monitoring quality and safety parameter in food safety, healthcare and other industries.
Hygiena UltraSnap system has consistently outperformed other ATP systems when data from other independent reports are compared.
“We are delighted that our newest luminometer, the EnSURE Touch, has been certified and independently shown to perform as well as the EnSURE ATP monitor,” said Martin Easter, Chief Scientific Officer at Hygiena. “The EnSURE Touch not only represents a major improvement for ATP hygiene monitoring systems but has additional applications for the rapid detection of other contaminants.”
