*A comprehensive, third-party evaluation of ATP hygiene monitoring systems was completed by one of the world's premier food & beverage reference laboratories. Sensitivity and reproducibility were some of the performance metrics evaluated and are shown in the table above. Request a full copy of the study from Hygiena.

*Prices are in U.S. dollars. Price information was collected by contacting manufacturers and prices seen in the competitive environment. The SystemSURE Plus instrument generally costs between 35 to 75% less than other instruments. The complete system including disposable ATP tests cost between 30 to 50% less.

*Sensitivity was determined by an outside lab. ATP was pipetted onto the test and read until the point in which the system no longer detected the ATP. A femtomole is 1x10-15 mole.

*Reproducibility, also referred to at the coefficient of variation, was calculated using data from 10 replicates for each serial dilution of ATP pipetted onto the swab tips from 1 to 1000 femtomoles. The background light generated from the Charm Sciences™ tests could not be removed. If it could, variation would be even greater.

*Test Storage Capacity: This is the number of test results the meter can store before deleting is required.
