The 3M™ Clean-Trace™ ATP Cleaning Monitoring System is a rapid cleaning efficacy monitoring tool that measures cleanliness of medical devices, endoscopes, and environmental surfaces. In just 30 seconds, the Clean-Trace System can quantify the cleanliness of a surface or lumen sample using Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) bioluminescence. With the integrated software, you can track your facility’s data, generate reports, identify issues, and focus your process improvement efforts where they’re needed most.
Cleaning flexible endoscopes and surgical instruments is critical because residual organic material, like blood, pus, tissue, and bone, can inactivate disinfectants and allow potentially deadly bacteria to remain on the surfaces. Facilities that achieve the highest standard of care proactively monitor manual cleaning protocols for flexible endoscopes using the 3M™ Clean-Trace™ ATP Monitoring System.

The patient care environment is full of high-touch surfaces: bed rails, tables, switches, buttons, and frequently used mobile equipment. It has been clinically proven that cross-contamination from these environmental surfaces is significantly decreased with improved cleaning.1
