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.
The Luminometer LX25 was designed based on user feedback with new functionality, a color touchscreen and a modern ergonomic design to help support your goals for more effective cleaning processes.
Whenever a reading is generated on the Luminometer LX25 in your facility, the data is captured, transmitted wirelessly and uploaded directly for analysis. No transcription is required. Learn more (PDF, 1,852 KB)
Meet the database portion of the 3M™ Clean-Trace™ ATP Monitoring System—the 3M Quality Control Data Manager, or 3M QCDM. It’s an online, hosted service that allows you to review and manage your cleaning test data. Instead of relying on guesswork, you can easily (and quickly) identify weak spots, problem areas and trends—improving and streamlining your entire cleaning monitoring practice.

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
