Moving to an innovative, liquid-stable formulation the 3M Clean-Trace Water – Total ATP test swab have improved temperature stability and test result accuracy. This aqueous test is designed to rapidly assess standards of hygiene, equipment sanitation processes and the efficiency of Clean In Place (CIP) 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. These test swab also provides food and beverage producers with the flexibility to store the product at temperatures between 21 degrees to 25 degrees Celsius for up to two months or refrigerate (2 degrees to 8 degrees Celsius) for up to 12 months.
