Charm novaLUM II-X system

Tuesday, 28 November, 2023 | Supplied by: Cell Biosciences Pty Ltd

The novaLUM II-X system brings together Charm’s ATP (adenosine triphosphate) detection technology and new novaLINK 5 software for a system designed to make sanitation verification, corrective action and documentation easier.

Available from Cell Biosciences, the system can optimise real-time sanitation monitoring and can use data to evaluate and improve sanitation programs. Detection of ATP on surfaces has been shown in several published papers to be an effective tool to monitor cleanliness and to document the effectiveness of cleaning programs.

One study published in the American Journal of Infection Control (October 2012. 40(08) e233-9) established validation criteria for ATP detection systems that monitor hospital surfaces. Hospital surfaces were treated with three representative bacteria and blood as biological sources of ATP. This study provides guidance on what to consider when trialling and selecting an ATP system.

The study found that the Charm Sciences novaLUM with PocketSwab Plus swab met the verification standards. It further validated that measurement of ATP is applicable for monitoring cleanliness. ATP is sufficiently stable over a 10-day period, unperturbed by sanitiser, and is subsequently removed with effective cleaning (similar to bacterial removal) as measured using ATP testing. The study serves as a model for cleaning validation and verification and for the evaluation of ATP testing systems.
