Sterile dry swabs for fluids and surfaces for using with PD-30
Come clean with HACCP
Do you manufacture cosmetics, juice or foods? Do you prepare water?
Do you transport foodstuffs in tankers? Do you inspect cleaning in production? Are you responsible for hygiene in hospitals? Do you need quick and safe results in hygiene monitoring?
The degree of cleanliness plays an important role wherever HACCP concepts (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) have to be implemented. Lumitester PD-30 and LuciPac Pens (LuciPac Pen: for dry and moist surfaces; LuciPac Pen AQUA: for liquids and water; LuciPac Pen LS: for endoscopes and hard-to-access locations) provide you with certainty within the shortest time that these areas are hygienically clean.
Food manufacturers use these to measure bacterial contamination, as do employees at leisure facilities such as spas, saunas and swimming pools. Restorers can verify
contamination on works of art. Airlines can check the cleanliness of kitchens and toilets in real time. And large kitchens, hospitals, medical and pharmaceutical companies use them to ensure high levels of hygienic safety.
Cleanliness can be measured! The Luminometer PD-30 can be used according to DIN 10124:2009-12.
Safety in just five steps!
Hygiene monitoring in 30 seconds
Take a sample from a surface using the sterile cotton bud (LuciPac Pen) or use the sterile LuciPac Pen AQUA sampler to take a sample from a liquid or water. Then the respective sampler is inserted into the first reaction chamber, which is sealed with aluminium foil. This contains a strong detergent solution and breaks down any bacteria that may be present in the sample in order to render accessible the ATP.
In the next step, this mixture reacts with the freeze-dried enzymes located in the lower chamber. Here the luminescence to be measured is released in an enzymatic cycle.
The degree of luminescence is in direct proportion to the amount of ATP-AMP-ADP present, and can be quantified using the Lumitester PD-30 as relative light units (RLUs). The more bio-luminescence that is measured, the larger the degree of contamination. The entire process takes less than 30 seconds.
After no longer than half a minute, and without enrichment or incubation, you will know the degree of contamination from organic residues, such as bacteria. Compared to conventionally- available luciferase, the patented, manufactured, genetically engineered enzyme of the firefly is tolerant to various detergents. Thus any residues of cleaning products will not, in general, inhibit the reaction, and the measurement and result will not be distorted (patent no. EP1041151A1).
