Microbial ATP Measurement of Deionised Water Used by an Automotive Manufacturer in Malaysia
An automotive manufacturer in Malaysia has deionised (DI) water supply for use at their paint shop. DI water is a purified water with ions removed.
They found that the condition of the DI water affects the quality of their paint coating. Thus, it is vital for them to ensure that their DI water supply adhere to low threshold of detected microbes.
This automotive manufacturer has chosen Hygiena AquaSnap Total and AquaSnap Free with EnSURE Touch luminometer as their solution for rapid microbial ATP measurement of their DI water supply.
With these instruments, they are able to get rapid results in only 10 seconds. The ATP results are then compared with traditional bacterial plate count that will be available 3 to 4 days later.
Hygiena Rapid ATP Measurement?
Hygiena ATP Monitoring System combines a state-of-the-art photodiode with superior liquid-stable chemistry and the patented Snap valve test device to produce the most accurate ATP Monitoring System available. ATP test kits for water samples are:
- AquaSnap Total: Measures both microbial ATP (living cells and particulate matter) and Free ATP (non-microbial or dead cells) in solution.
- AquaSnap Free: Measures non-microbial ATP (a.k.a. dead cells) in a solution.
