Within the manufacturing industry, the presence and adherence to hygiene and sanitation programs are of utmost importance. Insufficient cleaning methods can pose significant risks, allowing pathogens and allergens to persist in the environment, particularly on inadequately cleaned food contact surfaces. This jeopardizes food safety and may even lead to food recalls. This can be avoided by utilizing advanced hygiene and sanitation verification systems.

A comprehensive hygiene and sanitation program leaves nothing to chance. We could help you in ensuring that your cleaning program is efficient and effective through advanced technologies such as A3 detection, mobile flow cytometry, and protein residue testing. To learn more about these, check our Lumitester™ Smart A3 Hygiene Monitoring System, CytoQuant® Mobile Flow Cytometer, and RapidChek™ Total Protein Test Kit.

Industry-leading hygiene and sanitation verification system utilizing the innovative A3 technology

Maintaining proper hygiene and sanitation is a crucial aspect of ensuring the safety of food throughout the food supply chain. Food producers are now utilizing ATP monitoring systems in their hygiene and sanitation control program in order to verify the effectiveness of their cleaning and disinfection practices. Adenosine triphosphate, commonly known as ATP, is the energy currency utilized by various life forms; serving as an indicator of the presence of microorganisms and organic matter. However, ATP can be unstable due to its susceptibility to degradation.

Discover the advanced A3 technology, which goes beyond detecting ATP alone. With the capability to detect not only ATP but also ADP (adenosine diphosphate) and AMP (adenosine monophosphate), it ensures highly accurate results and superior detection compared to other ATP-based hygiene and monitoring systems. Experience enhanced efficiency and effectiveness in maintaining hygiene standards with this innovative A3 technology.


Lumitester Smart

The only hygiene and monitoring system with A3 Technology (ATP + ADP + AMP)

Lumitester Smart, Kikkoman Biochemifa’s novel hygiene and monitoring system, utilizes the patented A3 technology which measures not just ATP but also ADP and AMP. These adenylates are found to be present in higher amounts in many types of food and microorganisms. Due to the constant hydrolyzation of ATP to ADP and AMP by metabolic processes, heat treatment, or exposure to acidic or alkaline conditions, measurement of ATP, ADP, and AMP provides accurate results compared to other traditional ATP test systems that are available in the market today.
