Improvements to 3M’s Clean-Trace Water test swab available for global food and beverage producers

October 31, 2012

By 3M

3M Food Safety announces that the 3M Clean-Trace Water – Total ATP test swab will be moving to an innovative, liquid-stable formulation that allows for improved temperature stability and test result accuracy.

3M CleanTrace WaterPlusThe aqueous test is designed to rapidly assess standards of hygiene, equipment sanitation processes and the efficiency of Clean in Place (CIP) procedures by detecting the presence of microbial contamination and/or product residues. It gives an objective indication of the cleanliness of water samples in seconds. By working in real time, food and beverage producers can test their rinse waters after each CIP cycle and re-clean efficiently if ‘fail’ results are observed.

The swab tip contains sample collection rings, which are coated with a unique agent aiding in the efficient collection and processing of a sample. Once the swab is activated, the results are measured by the 3M Clean-Trace NG Luminometer in Relative Light Units (RLU).

The new 3M Clean-Trace Water plus – Total ATP test swab also provides food and beverage producers with the flexibility to store the product at room temperature (21 degrees to 25 degrees Celsius) for up to two months or refrigerate (2 degrees to 8 degrees Celsius) for up to 12 months.

Additionally, the improved swab allows for lower background RLU levels, enabling food and beverage producers to further improve their cleaning efficiencies as part of their continuous improvement processes.

For further information on the improved 3M Clean-Trace Water plus – Total ATP test swab, or to learn more about 3M Food Safety, individuals can contact their local sales representative or call (800) 328-6553.
