Neogen has released an enhanced version of its popular AccuPoint® ATP Hygiene Monitoring System that makes the product the most sensitive and consistent hygiene monitoring test system available.

Neogen’s new AccuPoint Advanced ATP Hygiene Monitoring System features samplers with new technology to more consistently collect any potential residues left behind after sanitation efforts; an enhanced compact instrument to better detect any residues collected by the samplers; and user-friendly data management software to organize and analyze the system’s test results.

“While the previous versions of our AccuPoint system have been very successful tools to monitor the effectiveness of the sanitation programs of our numerous customers, the feedback we’ve received led directly to this next generation of our AccuPoint system,” said Ed Bradley, Neogen’s vice president of Food Safety. “Our many years of working closely with the food industry, and other producers of consumer products, have shown us what product features matter. We are very pleased to offer a new sanitation testing system that we believe is superior to anything else in the market.”

Improvements include:

  • Improved sampler chemistry to produce more consistent results with even greater sensitivity — and the ability to be stored at room temperature for up to two weeks;
  • An enhanced instrument to produce even faster results (less than 20 seconds);
  • Advanced Data Manager software to easily streamline the testing process by creating test plans and syncing important data, while keeping a permanent record of hygiene test results.

ATP (adenosine triphosphate) sanitation monitoring systems have evolved into the current “gold standard” for food and beverage production facilities to monitor their sanitation efforts. Using an ATP system is an easy and quick gauge of a facility’s cleanliness, and is easily customized for the specific equipment, people, product, and processes used in any food production facility. The systems set an objective, recordable, and traceable standard to help avoid the consequences of substandard sanitation efforts.
