ATP with DNA for Better Management of the Microbes in Your System
Microorganisms corrode metal, degrade product, and inhibit processes, costing the oil & gas, water, and manufacturing industries billions of dollars annually.
LuminUltra’s 2nd Generation ATP® test kits are a revolutionary step-up from traditional tools – delivering a rapid, accurate quantification of the total microbial population in a sample. Now our new GeneCountTM DNA-based solutions offer insight on which microbes – good or bad – make up that population, empowering you to use tailored solutions for better microbial management.
Introducing GeneCountTM – LuminUltra’s DNA Portfolio of Products and Services
Our GeneCount line is flexible, so no matter what your current DNA knowledge or testing capabilities, we can accommodate.
Three options to suit your operations:
- Choose our in-house NGS and qPCR services and we’ll do the testing for you
- Choose our turn-key qPCR workflow and start offering qPCR as a service to your clients
- Buy your own portable qPCR device and take control over your own testing
Quantify, specify, and target microbes of interest with the GeneCount portfolio of DNA Products and Services. Not sure which option is best for you? Download our GeneCount brochure or contact us and we’ll help you pinpoint the ‘who’ in your process.
Our DNA Technology: GeneCount NGS & qPCR
GeneCountTM Quantitative Polymerase Chain Reaction (qPCR) analysis allows users to rapidly screen for specific microbes, or groups of microbes, known to be significant in their process/systems. This highly sensitive analysis can detect low levels of the targeted problem organisms and quantify the entire population of that organism, giving you insight so you can proactively detect changes in your system.
GeneCountTM Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) analysis allows users to see what’s happening inside their process by identifying nearly all of the types of microbes present along with an insight into what benefit – or harm – they may be causing.
With LuminUltra’s qPCR and NGS solutions you will be able to:
- Understand the cause and effect relationships microbes are having on your system
- See trends and understand future triggers for proactive versus reactive decision-making
- Adjust biocide use depending on the changes you detect
- Apply a targeted treatment for damage causing organisms
- Make faster, better decisions for greater efficiencies

Hear What Our Customers Say About Us
The ATP testing is going great. We are effectively using it to help determine if nitrification is taking place in areas of our distribution system. We typically will see high nitrite levels and have to wait 7 days for our HPC (R2A) results. The ATP test is giving us results that same day.
Aurora Water (Aurora, CO) has been using LuminUltra’s test to measure and monitor Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) in the biofiltration process at the Binney Water Purification Facility (BWPF) since April 2012. This easy to perform test allows BWPF staff to quickly determine ATP levels on the biofilter GAC during start-up of the processes, as well as during routine operation.
I was amazed at the fact that we could measure total microorganisms in a matter of minutes…
LuminUltra’s ATP technology as advertised should be considered as the “1st Line of Defense” tool of choice and first primary testing tool for microbial activity.
ATP has assisted us in maintaining bioreactor performance. We recommend this technology to any facility looking to improve process control and plant stability.
They are the only ATP test kit manufacturer that has developed a family of test kits – each optimized for a range of applications. LuminUltra is also the only ATP test kit manufacturer with an ATP method that differentiates bacteria from fungi. They are undoubtedly head and shoulders above other ATP test kit manufacturers.
The decision to use LuminUltra products was easy as they have positioned themselves as the industry leader in ATP testing due to their pioneering techniques and continued level of accuracy.
