ATP Swab Tests: Allergens
ATP allergen tests: Options include gluten test kits; ones that test for glucose, lactose, and protein. No matter which ones your organization needs, Hygiena’s ATP tests facilitate the examination of surfaces, food, and drink for contaminants. This in turn allows food manufacturers, commercial kitchens, environmental cleaning companies, and businesses in many other industries to rapidly respond to the presence of allergens and, as needed, take immediate corrective actions.
Each of these allergen tests are easy to use and interpret. Their consistent use can prevent allergen cross-contamination in a highly effective, holistic way, which will help to protect the health of customers. It allows companies to improve upon and then verify cleaning protocols to also protect their reputations. These ATP swabs can even cut through the biofilm that forms when microorganisms come in contact with food and moisture and allow companies to address biofilm-related hygienic issues.
Specific types of allergen tests with ATP swabs include the following:
AllerFlow gluten testing kit: This kit comes with pre-measured allergen swabs that quickly indicate the presence of any gluten surface residue. This includes barley, oat, rye, and/or wheat without having any corn, rice, or soy cross-activity.
ATP Swab Tests: Organisms
With ATP organism tests, your organization can conveniently check for the presence of Salmonella, Enterobacteriaceae, and more, which makes them crucial tests for environmental cleaning organizations, the food and beverage industry, and so forth. When residue is spotted, you can immediately focus on improving cleaning protocols for enhanced safety levels and also speed up product to market time.
With organism tests, you may hear references to “indicator organisms.” These microorganisms are ones chosen to check for pathogen presence, such as in a food production line.
Each of these organism testing systems is preset with pass/fail levels that, overall, are optimal for facilities. We’ve arrived at these levels after years of testing and by also referring to results of independent scientific research. If new to ATP testing, these thresholds usually are a good place to start; as needed, you can adjust them for your own unique requirements.
Tests include the following:
ATP Swab Tests: Surface, Water, and Enzyme
ATP surface, water, and enzyme efficiency tests permit you to test for the presence of ATP, quickly and easily. This organic compound (adenosine triphosphate) serves as the energy source for living cells and, when residue remains on surfaces, dangerous cross-contamination may exist. These Hygiena tests are highly sensitive, which allows you to effectively obtain results and enhance cleaning protocols.
Ideally, testing for ATP should take place after surfaces have been cleaned but not yet sanitized. If that isn’t possible, perhaps because you can’t test immediately after cleaning, go ahead and sanitize and then test. Most sanitizers will not affect results.
These tests include:

ATP Swab FAQs
How does ATP swab testing work?
A bioluminescence test is performed by the reader with results reported, often directly by the reader, within 15 seconds on average. Many readers can also save reading histories digitally so that results can be tracked and monitored over time.
