ATP swab


ATP Swab is a sampler of ATP Hygiene Monitor, used to detect the number of ATP to evaluate sample cleanliness. ATP is the universal energy molecule found in all animal, plant, bacterial, yeast and mold cells. Product residues from organic matter left on surfaces contain ATP. Microbial contamination on a surface also contains ATP. When a sample is collected and brought into contact with the luciferase reagent in the ATP swab, light is emitted in direct proportion to the amount of ATP present in the sample. The ATP Hygiene Monitor measures the light generated by the sample in the swab and reports results in Relative Light Units (RLUs) within seconds. The higher the RLU number, the more ATP is present and the dirtier the surface.

Testing steps:

1. Holding the swab tube firmly, pull the swab out of the tube. 

2. Thoroughly swab a area 10 x 10cm (4 x 4 inch) for a typical surface

Swabbing tips:

(1). Do not touch the swab or the sample with finger. 

(2). Swab in a crisscross pattern vertically, horizontally and diagonally. 

(3). Rotate the swab while collecting the sample to maximize sample collection on the swab tip. 

(4). Apply sufficient pressure to create flex in the swab. 

3. Replace the swab back in the swab tube. 

4. Hold the swab tube firmly and push the swab to the bottom and bathe it in the bottom liquid., 

5. Shake 10 times to mix, activate the swab. 

6. Shake the liquid to the bottom of the tube. 

7. Holding the ATP luminometer upright, insert the entire swab into the luminometer. 

8. Start testing and interpret the result. 


1. The ATP swab is disposable and use it within the validity period. 

2. Once activated, the sample must be start testing in the ATP Hygiene Monitor within 30 seconds
