2nd Generation ATP® Testing
Quick, precise view into your microbes
Effective management starts with accurate, fast, high-level information. Our 2nd Generation ATP® Testing provides data to help you know what is happening in your system. Our patented measurement system represents a major upgrade over other microbiological tools.
By combining LuminUltra products like our PhotonMaster™ luminometer, and myLuminUltra software, you will have a true total measurement of all microorganisms contained in your sample in just a few minutes. Having rapid information allows you to take action at the earliest possible moment, saving time and money in the battle against microorganisms.
How it works
ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) is the primary energy carrier for all forms of life. The measurement of ATP concentration in a sample provides a direct assessment of biological concentration and health.
ATP is quantified by introducing luciferase, the naturally-occurring firefly enzyme, into a processed sample and then measuring the light produced as a result of the reaction using a luminometer. The amount of light produced is directly proportional to the amount of ATP present in the sample.
Our test kits have been specifically designed and optimized for different applications and sample types, whether it’s handling solids in wastewater samples, high organics concentrations in oil and gas samples, or providing the high sensitivity required for water samples.
To discover the total microbiology in your sample, you need a test kit that measures all of the microorganisms. LuminUltra’s 2nd Generation ATP® test kits have been engineered to provide the best-in-class balance of ease-of-use and accuracy available.
In order to proceed with testing, you require a sensitive device, such as our PhotonMaster™ luminometer, to measure the light produced when ATP reacts with our Luminase enzyme.
Collect your sample and process it according to the appropriate test protocol.
To truly achieve control, it’s vital to analyze the outcomes and take action. Our myLuminUltra software helps you stay in control through smart interpretation and easy-to-use analytical tools.
