A3 – Advanced Chemistry
Whether the contamination comes from blood, biofilms, bacteria or body fluids, ATP is a recognized test for verifying your cleaning protocol but ATP can be unstable and decompose – into ADP and AMP. Tests that detect ATP alone can’t give you the whole picture – and you could be relying on false negative data. A3 technology detects ATP ADP AMP for advanced detection power. It’s detection perfection.
Incredibly easy. Incredibly effective.
A3 technology is used in the same manner as conventional ATP swabs. Keep swabbing surfaces as you always have. But with the innovative chemistry of A3 technology, you get superior sensitivity.
