3M™ Clean-Trace™ Hygiene Monitoring and Management System

  • It’s designed to give you the ability to make critical decisions with the right information in high pressure situations. The 3M™ Hygiene Monitoring and Management System (PDF, 652 KB) provides you with the materials and technology to verify within seconds that your food production surfaces are clean and that it’s safe to start production. This solution is easy-to-use, reducing errors in testing and maximizing production efficiency.

How 3M™ Clean-Trace™ utilizes ATP testing technology

  • Microbes and product residue contain Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP), an indicator of biological residues that can be easily detected to measure cleanliness quickly. Unlike other methods, ATP testing is rapid, sensitive, quantitative and simple.

    To measure ATP using the 3M™ Clean-Trace™ System, a collected sample is mixed with luciferase, an enzyme from fireflies, which catalyzes a reaction. The energy from this reaction creates light that’s proportional to the amount of ATP in the sample — the more light detected, the dirtier the surface tested.

How to assess risk in your facility

  • Salad greens on a food processing line.

    When implementing hygiene monitoring test point selection for ATP testing in your facility, it’s important to analyze risk with questions similar to these:
     

    • How significant is the hazard?
    • How close is the surface to the food?
    • What is the probability the hazard will occur?
    • How hard is it to clean the surface?

    Determining the number of test points to sample will depend on the physical size of the manufacturing operation and complexity or number of steps involved in the manufacturing process.
