Universal ATP Surface Test 

SnapShot™ universal ATP surface tests are compatible with most manufacturers' luminometers. Each version is designed to replicate the ATP reaction of the test it's replacing, eliminating the need to change pass/fail settings. In addition, SnapShot uses Hygiena's unique liquid-stable reagent, allowing for more reproducible resultsSnapShot devices cost up to 50% less, allowing users to expand their testing program with the same budget.

It's as easy as 1, 2, 3.

Using SnapShot couldn't be easier—simply swab, snap, and squeeze
Three simple steps collect a sample, activate the device, and mix the sample. It's a snap!

It's all in the chemistry. 

Hygiena's unique liquid-stable chemistry improves test result consistency and offers a higher resistance to sanitizer effect. The liquid chemistry eliminates the need to reconstitute lyophilized pellets and reduces variability in activation. Learn more about the difference between lyophilized and liquid-stable chemistries here.

More bang for your buck.

SnapShot's advanced device design and liquid-stable chemistry offer greater sensitivity than other test devices, enabling you to detect even lower levels of ATP. Request a copy of the study, or request samples of SnapShot.

Consistency is key.

Switch to SnapShot and drastically reduce variability from test to test. In a third party study by a food and beverage laboratory, SnapShot demonstrated superior performance and consistency over other manufacturers' devices. Request a copy of the study, or request samples of SnapShot.

Realistic results.

Our patented design ensures superior sample recovery and accurate ATP measurements. Why is this important? Inferior sample recovery means the sample will most likely be lost or diluted in the activation and mixing process, leading users to believe a surface is cleaner than it truly is. See the data for yourself. Request a copy of the study, or request samples of SnapShot.
