AquaSnap Free – Health Care

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 number (total load). Then, use AquaSnap™ Free on the same sample and record this number (free ATP). The difference between AquaSnap™ Total and AquaSnap™ Free provides an indication of the microbial ATP 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 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 100 µl sample every time to ensure consistent results. Alternative water ATP test devices use a swab tip for sample collection. Swabs designed for surface sampling cause large sample variation when used for water sampling. The honey dipper collection tip collects a precise 100 µl each time, ensuring a consistent sample size from test to test.

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.

Less is More

We believe less is more. Competitor swabs have on average as twice as many parts as Hygiena™ Swabs. Fewer parts in the device mean less room for error from manufacturing variance and less raw material costs, delivering great accuracy and more value to our customers.

100% Recyclable

All Hygiena™ ATP test devices are 100% recyclable.

Rapid CIP Cleaning Verification

AquaSnap™ Total quickly checks the efficiency of pre-cleaning and cleaning efforts before high-level disinfection and sterilization. Simply flush the scope or specific channels with sterile water, sample the water with AquaSnap, activate the test, and read the results in your Hygiena™ luminometer. If ATP is present in the sample, cleaning efforts are not properly removing residue and the scope is still dirty.
