Equipment cleaning protocols & use of ATP meters

Measuring adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is a common method food processors, and health care industries are using to measure the effectiveness of their cleaning     procedures. An ATP meter measures organic material present on surfaces which otherwise appear to be clean to the naked eye.

The Wisconsin Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory has adapted ATP usage to on-farm calf sanitation audits, in order to identify areas where cleanliness can be improved
