Liquid-Stable Food Safety Test

December 12, 2012

 3M Food Safety, Minneapolis, released the 3M Clean-Trace Water – Total ATP test swab, now available in a liquid-stable formulation for improved temperature3M Clean Trace Water stability and test result accuracy.

The aqueous test is designed to rapidly assess standards of hygiene, equipment sanitation processes and the efficiency of clean-in-place procedures by detecting the presence of microbial contamination and/or product residues. It gives an objective indication of the cleanliness of water samples in seconds. By working in real time, food and beverage producers can test their rinse waters after each CIP cycle and re-clean efficiently if ‘fail’ results are observed.

The swab tip contains sample collection rings, which are coated with a unique agent aiding in the efficient collection and processing of a sample. Once the swab is activated, the results are measured by the 3M Clean-Trace NG Luminometer in Relative Light Units (RLU).

The new 3M Clean-Trace Water Plus – Total ATP test swab also provides food and beverage producers the flexibility to store the product at room temperature (21-25°C) for up to two months or refrigerate (2-8°C) for up to 12 months.
