ATP Testing in Montreal, Quebec
Lack of proper sanitation and hygienic practices is a common dilemma within facilities all over the world. Fortunately, Air Labs offers a cost-effective solution that will maintain your business's reputation. With ATP monitoring and surface testing, you'll ensure your facility is in the best condition possible.
How Does ATP Testing Work?
An adenosine triphosphate ATP examination can validate whether cleaning practices are effective. The inspector conducting the ATP monitoring will swab the appropriate surfaces at the facility and insert the samples into a unit known as a luminometer. A swabbing test combined with relative light is a quick and easy way to determine the cleanliness of a facility. The light produced will give you immediate results, and you'll know how dirty your business is once and for all.
What is ATP Testing Used For?
Adenosine triphosphate tests are essential for determining food and water cleanliness. This type of testing can quickly measure the number of active microorganisms on surfaces, foods, and liquids. ATP is an enzyme present in organic matter (both living and once-living). This includes saliva, bacteria, and blood.
If cleanliness levels don't meet Health Canada requirements, we'll propose specific measures to improve the cleaning process.
Many industries benefit from these tests, schools, offices, and especially those in which food safety and product quality is a priority, such as healthcare facilities. At Air Labs, we protect your business through quality ATP detection testing by measuring the effectiveness of your cleaning procedures in place.
Benefits of ATP Testing
Health and Safety Compliance
Food safety and sanitation control are right around the corner for your facility. Our ATP detection tests ensure you're complying with the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) requirements and pass third-party audits of your facility.
Longer Shelf Life
Through an ATP tester, you will achieve longer shelf life for your products and protect the reputation of your brand.
Are ATP Tests Accurate?
Whether or not an ATP test is accurate depends on the provider carrying out the test as well as the ATP swabs used. Air Labs uses nothing less than the highest quality and most accurate surface, liquid, and universal tests. Our ATP tests are an integral part of ensuring equipment, water, and facilities are safe for food production. Our tests are a proven method of measuring cleanliness within facilities.
Frequently Asked Questions
After the telephone consultation, we can usually offer a reliable estimate.
If mold is observed during a pre-purchase inspection, an Air-Labs report will help you understand the seriousness of the issue as well as offer details on potential sources and recommendations towards solutions.
Humidity in contact with a decomposable that doesn’t dry efficiently is the source of all mould. This includes issues created condensation, water damage or relative humidity. Usually, mold growth is propelled by a lack of ventilation, which is why often mould is a hidden problem.
We begin with a telephone interview to understand the context and reason for the visit. On the inspection day, we will then walk through the area of concern with the client to assess the environment. Once the inspection begins our most commonly employed techniques include the following
- Infra red camera / thermal imaging: This technology allows us to detail unusual changes in surface temperatures to assess for leaks or condensation problems.
- Humidity meter: This instrument allows us to asses the moisture level at a depth beyond the surface. So if humidity is gathering behind said surface we can detect it and provide that percentage in the written report.
- Air compressor: Otherwise known as an air pump this allows us to sample the air with accuracy. The pump is carefully calibrated at the beginning of each inspection to offer our clients the most reliable results possible.
- Camera/Flashlight: To document our findings
- We will also employ instruments to gather data related to relative humidity, temperature, dew point, carbon monoxide, and carbon dioxide.
