3M Clean-Trace Water Plus Total ATP (AQF100) 100 Pack
3M™ Clean-Trace™ Water-Free ATP test is a single-use test device that
contains sample collection rings for the collection of an aqueous sample (figure
1). The sample collection rings are coated with a wetting agent to aid in the
collection of a liquid sample without the release of Adenosine Tri-Phosphate
(ATP) from intact microbial cells. Upon activation of the test device, reagent
in the cuvette of the test device reacts with ATP collected on the sample
collection rings to produce light. The intensity of the light is proportional to
the amount of non-microbial ATP. Measurement of the light requires the use of a
3M™ Clean-Trace™ NG Luminometer and the results are displayed in Relative Light
Units (RLU). The test kit contains 100 ready to use test devices packaged as
units of 10 per individual foil pouch.
Real-time FreeATP water hygiene test gives an objective indication of cleanliness in seconds.
- Simple to use and ideal for busy production environments.
- Rapid results allow immediate corrective action.
- The test is designed to rapidly assess equipment sanitation processes and the efficiency of Clean In Place (CIP) procedures by the improved and more accurate detection of organic contamination from microbial or product residues.
- The test gives an objective indication of cleanliness in water samples
- The new and improved formulation also provides the flexibility to store AQF100 at your own
convenience - room temperature for up to 2 months or refrigerated for up to 8 months.

Instructions for Use
- Before the 3M Clean-Trace Water-Free test device is activated, it is
important to ensure your 3M Clean-Trace NG or LM1 Luminometer is switched on
and initialized. Refer to the manual provided with the instrument for full
details. Place the 3M Clean-Trace Water-Free ATP test devices at room
temperature for at least 10 minutes before use.
- Collect liquid samples from the test sites of interest. Process each
sample through steps 3-6. DO NOT batch at any of these stages.
- Swirl to mix the sample. Remove a 3M Clean-Trace Water-Free ATP test
device from the foil pouch. Remove the sampling stick from the 3M device
and immerse the sample collection rings into the liquid under test, tapping
the handle gently if bubbles form (figure 1). Immediately remove the
sample head from the solution to be tested and carefully return the
sampling stick to the test device such that the handle is at its starting
- To process the sample, push down firmly on the top of the 3M Clean-Trace
Water-Free ATP sample stick handle (figure 2). The handle will slide into
the test device tube and the top of the handle should be level with the top
of the device tube when fully depressed. Grip the top of the test device
and shake rapidly side-to-side for at least five seconds to mix the
sample and reagent (figure 3).
- Immediately open the sample chamber of the 3M Clean-Trace NG or LM1 Luminometer
and insert the 3M Clean-Trace Water-Free ATP test device. Close the
chamber cap and press the measure button. The light emitted by the 3M Clean-Trace test device will be measured and the result (in RLU) will
appear on the display (figure 4).
