Video: Best Practices for Effectively Implementing an ATP Sanitation Verification System

ATP (adenosine triphosphate) sanitation monitoring is a process of rapidly measuring actively growing microorganisms. How can you best utilise this technology so that you can keep your food business food safe?

Web Seminar Summary: Best Practices for Effectively Implementing an ATP Sanitation Verification System

Increasingly, the focus for food and beverage production facilities is on having a robust, formalized environmental monitoring program. One of the key components of any EMP is a structured ATP verification monitoring program. While the majority of food and beverage production facilities in the developed world utilize ATP sanitation monitoring systems, their employment is often unstructured and sub-optimal.

Neogen, in conjunction with industry experts, has developed a handbook titled, “Best practices for effectively implementing an ATP sanitation verification program”, that provides real-world guidance for facilities wishing to enhance their EMP through a more formalized and structured approach.

Topics covered will include:

  •  Validation Vs verification
  • Cleaning to a validated standard
  • Swabbing and establishing baselines
  • RLU’s as an indication of cleanliness
  • Migrating from validation to verification
  • Using the results to improve cleaning
  • Interpreting test results
  • Complementary environmental testing
