The Charm novaLUM is an ATP detection system used to monitor cleaning effectiveness of sanitation programs. The novaLUM utilizes a technologically advanced photomultiplier tube (PMT) that is more sensitive to ATP (adenosine triphosphate) presence allowing detection of lower levels of microbial and organic matter contamination.
Heterotrophic Plate Count
The HPC test (or Standard Plate Count), applied in many variants, is widely used to measure the heterotrophic microorganism population in drinking-water and other media. Heterotrophs are organisms including bacteria, yeasts and molds that require an external source of organic carbon for growth.
Biological Indicators for steam sterilization of both liquid and solid/hard materials are used. Testing method is AAMI/ISO Compliant.
Aquatic Water Testing
Aquatic Water Testing is available in-house and includes the following analytes: pH, Conductivity, Temperature, Nitrite, Nitrate, Dissolved Oxygen, Chlorine, Monochloramine, Total and Free Chlorine, Ammonia, Hardness, Alkalinity, Copper.
