Germ Detective – ATP Bacteria Detection Tool


ATP is a molecule found in and around living cells, and as such it gives a direct measure of biological concentration and health. ATP is quantified by measuring the light produced through its reaction with the naturally occurring firefly enzyme luciferase using a luminometer. The amount of light produced is directly proportional to the amount of ATP present in the sample.

ATP tests can be used to:

  • Control biological treatment reactors
  • Guide biocide dosing programs
  • Determine drinking water cleanliness
  • Manage fermentation processes
  • Assess soil activity
  • Determine corrosion / deposit process type
  • Measure equipment or product sanitation

Note: Test swabs not included. Hygiena brand swabs may be used with this device.

    Device works as expected and for much less than other options. My only issue was that shipping, although free, took 8 days when I expected it in 3-5 days. Other than this minor issue, the experience was great.

  2. Mike Lowry

    Using this to analyze surface bacteria in common areas and restrooms for a chain of restaurants. It is a useful tool to understand how good of a job our frontline staff is doing and helps us keep our customers safe.

    5 Stars

  4. Samuel Jones

    it is much more user friendly than others i have tried

  5. Devin Richardson Jr.

    Our cleaning company uses this device to test before and after cleaning services to prove to our customers the effectiveness of our work. Has helped us tremendously during the pandemic.

  6. Kyle Andersen

    Got it just in time for a big project. Thank you to all who helped answer all of my questions and concerns!!!

  7. Amanda DiAngelo

    Works just as well as the Hygiena brand atp testers for a lot less. Be aware: the RLUs from device to device vary. You need to take the average of 5 readings to find your lower limit.

  8. Sarah Novas

    Had some issues setting it up to it the manual not being too clear. They sent a video and helped with the setup. All is good

  9. Marc Martinez

    Arrived quickly and works great to measure cleanliness on surfaces. Has a bit of a learning curve, but definitely worth it

  10. Sam Highmore

    costs less than other atp meters out there and does the same job

  11. Lauren Lambert

    This unit helps us with our preventative disinfecting and cleaning protocols at different schools.

  12. Jorge Martinez

    Was missing the manual but Germaphobix provided a digital version after I asked. Besides that everything look great

  13. Harold Cooper Jr

    Shipping took a bit longer than expected, but everything arrived as advertised

  14. Meghan Pompiliano

    This ATP meter helps us ensure a clean work space at our food processing plant. We’re happy with our purchase from Germaphobix
