Proper cleaning and sanitation protocols

ATP testing for cleaning verification
Hygiene monitoring best practices
  • Maintaining a high standard of environmental cleaning and monitoring is core to food safety. Many food processors are taking extra precautions to increase the frequency of cleaning and sanitation in their daily operations and more frequent testing to validate the effectiveness of cleaning. The 3M™ Clean-Trace™ Hygiene Monitoring and Management System is used to rapidly verify cleanliness and hygiene of these food and beverage surfaces.

    While the system can help confirm whether a surface has been cleaned in a certain manner (shown by the reduction in ATP), the Clean-Trace product cannot be used to detect viruses, including coronavirus.  Viruses are particles that contain RNA or DNA, but not ATP. The 3M Clean-Trace System does not detect RNA or DNA on surfaces. The absence of ATP does not demonstrate or imply that viruses are not present or have been removed from a surface.

    Use the links below to access hygiene monitoring education materials and to learn more about how the 3M Clean-Trace System technology detects ATP to evaluate the effectiveness of your cleaning procedures.
