Because better detection, equals better protection.
Environmental hygiene is critical in infection control. Ineffective sanitation can leave behind biofilms or residue that can harbor opportunistic pathogens. That’s why Kikkoman has developed an innovative, new test for hygiene monitoring that offers better detection and higher sensitivity. Its patented A3 technology has been proven to find residue and microorganisms that other products miss. Just as easy and fast to use as conventional tests, but its advanced chemistry produces superior detection.
Find what you’ve been missing.

Self-audit infection control in the clinic
Monitor cleaning efficacy of hands and surfaces
Rapid check infection control measures are satisfactory

The LuciPac A3 swabs used with Lumitester Smart, measures the level of luminescence based on a biochemical reaction between ATP and Luciferase. The “luminescent analysis” used here enables measurement at a higher level of sensitivity than most analysis methods, and for this reason, a “luminometer” is required to pick up very feint light emissions. Conventional luminometers, however, are large, heavy, and expensive, and thus are generally not suited to environmental hygiene monitoring applications. Kikkoman has successfully broken through this barrier with the Lumitester Smart – small, lightweight, low-cost luminometer.

LuciPac A3 Infection Control swabs

LuciPac A3 Infection Control System from Kikkoman is the only system that detects ATP ADP AMP with one swab to give you the whole picture.  Its patented A3 Technology has been proven to detect residues and microorganisms that others miss and it’s incredibly easy to use. Just swab the way you always have, while enjoying the most advanced sensitivity and detection power available. It’s detection perfection. It’s a unique and powerful advantage.

Bacteria have no place left to hide.

(use only with Kikkoman PD30 or Lumitester Smart)

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.

Kit storage:

Kits are to be stored at a low temperature (2°C to 8°C ( 35.6°F to 46.4°F)) for long term storage.

The kit can be stored
-below 25°C ( 77°F) for up to 14 days
