AquaSnap® Free

Water ATP Test | Free

AquaSnap® Free measures non-microbial ATP (aka dead cells) in a solution.  Use AquaSnap Free in combination with AquaSnap® Total to identify the microbial ATP in a water sample. First, test a sample of water using AquaSnap® Total and record the number (Total load). Then, use AquaSnap® Free on the same sample and record this number (Free ATP). The difference between Total and Free provides an indication of the microbial contamination in the sample.


Key Benefits

The AquaSnap® water ATP test is a key component of Hygiena’s cleaning verification solution. It works hand-in-hand with the EnSURE® Touch Monitoring System to provide superior repeatability, linearity, sensitivity, and accuracy over other water ATP solutions. Several innovative design features enable AquaSnap to outperform its competition. Learn more about these features below.

 Precise Sample Collection

Patented Snap-Valve Design

Liquid-Stable Chemistry

Easy as Dip, Snap, Squeeze

100% Recyclable

Precise Sample Collection

The AquaSnap® Total honey dipper collection tip collects an exact 100µl sample every time to ensure consistent results. Other ATP water tests use a swab designed for surface sample collection which causes large sample variation.

Patented Snap-Valve Activation

The patented Snap-Valve technology enables accurate results with less variation. It allows the use of a precise honey dipper for precise sample collection and eliminates friction during the activation step. With competitor solutions, the sample collection surface must break through a foil seal, removing a portion of the collected sample.

Liquid-Stable Chemistry

AquaSnap® uses liquid-stable chemistry designed to eliminate the need to reconstitute lyophilized pellets, leading to more consistent results. The chemistry in AquaSnap® is a high-power, ultra-sensitive formulation to deliver precise results for low levels of ATP. AquaSnap®‘s chemistry is robust and resistant to harsh samples or sanitizer effects. Learn more about liquid-stable chemistry.

Easy as Dip, Snap, Squeeze

Using AquaSnap® Free couldn’t be easier. The three-step process for collecting a sample, activating the device, and mixing the sample is so easy, anyone can do it. Learn how to use AquaSnap®.

Less is More

We believe less is more. Competitor swabs have on average 2x more parts than the Hygiena® Swab. Fewer parts in the device mean less room for error from manufacturing variance and less raw material costs.

100% Recyclable

All Hygiena ATP test devices are 100% recyclable.

Quick CIP sanitation check

With AquaSnap® Total, sanitation teams can check the cleaning efficiency of CIP systems quickly. Simply sample the water from the last wash of the CIP cycle, activate the swab, and read the results in your Hygiena® luminometer. If ATP is present in the water, the cleaning cycle is not properly removing residue and the surfaces are still dirty.
