In healthcare organizations, cleanliness is typically measured using one or more of the following methods (Guh and Carling, 2010). The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) produced a toolkit in 2010 called Options for Evaluating Environmental Cleaning, which offered hospitals objective methods for monitoring the cleaning process (Guh and Carling, 2010). It included measures such as visual inspections, fluorescent markers/gels, microbiology testing, and ATP monitoring.
Tetro and Sattar, concluded by stating the following, “There is little doubt the ATP bioluminescent test could be a cost-effective means to ensure cleanliness in numerous sectors. However, the issues outlined in this review demonstrate that only a few environments may be appropriate for this test, such as electronics manufacturing and pharmaceuticals where any organic contamination is considered problematic.
These are highly controlled areas that may be best served by the test. More dynamic facilities, such as those in healthcare, education, and the food continuum may not be appropriate for this type of test. In essence, the overall value of the ATP test can be best summarized in the level of chemical complexity. In those that are simple, the test is appropriate. But in areas where the chemical complexity is high, it may be best to look at another option. (Tetro and Sattar, 2021)”.
Bactiscan offers that option because its innovative technology is not affected by the majority of those limitations associated with ATP testing and monitoring.
Bactiscan shows where the bacteria really is, enhancing targeted ATP surface sampling, improving ATP accuracy, increasing efficiency, and reducing ATP swabbing cost.
