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.

ATP is now the most common method of monitoring cleanliness in hospitals. The majority of US hospitals use ATP monitoring systems to measure cleanliness. In the United Kingdom and several European countries, ATP systems are also widely used. As healthcare-associated infection (HAI) rates increase and the demand for cleaner facilities increases, hospitals are increasingly using ATP monitoring.
Unfortunately, there are many critical limitations to the ATP test. A recent critical review of the Application of ATP Bioluminescence for Rapid Monitoring of Microbiological Contamination on Environmental Surfaces (Tetro and Sattar, 2021), identified some of these limitations. The limitations include lack of ATP production in all relevant microbial organisms, lack of correlation with microbial load, interference with luminescence, luciferase inhibition, sampling error, and sample acquisition.
Most US hospitals use ATP monitoring systems to measure cleanliness, so those hospital-grade cleaning standards are vulnerable to these limitations. It is not surprising, therefore, that as the North American Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) Swab Test market grows quickly, so too do Healthcare-associated infections (HAI).
It is likely that ATP monitoring is missing a significant amount of surface bacteria and dry surface biofilms, resulting in ineffective disinfectants, hence accelerated growth of Multidrug Resistance Organisms in hospitals.

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.


Introducing the Bactiscan Certified Clean Prgram.

Display the Bactiscan Certified Clean Seal that shows your customers and visitors that you are committed to a higher level of cleanliness that protects their health and safety. 

Each Bactiscan Certified Clean participant is able to obtain a Bactiscan Certified Clean seal, which certifies their participation in the program and can be displayed at their facilities as a symbol of their commitment to a higher standard of clean, the health and well-being of employees, customers, and members of the community. 

Participants in the program who purchase, rent, or lease the Bactiscan are allowed to display the Bactiscan Certified Clean seal at their facilities or on their website to let customers know they have been certified as participants in the program and are using the Bactiscan to create a safer environment.

Bactiscan partner with various industries to help detect surface bacteria, biofilms and mold, to provide proper cleaning, and disinfecting for a heathier and safer clean.

Among our partners are healthcare facilities, food processors, restaurants, hotels, grocery stores, and commercial facilities.
