Measuring Clean with ATP
ATP (Adenosine TriPhosphate) is a universal molecule found in all living things, including plants. An ATP meter measures the amount of pathogenic bacteria that is on a surface as it relates to biofilm. The meter gives a numerical reading - the lower the number, the cleaner the surface and the lower presence of biofilm.
See Who Uses ATP to Measure Clean
• The USDA uses ATP levels to determine if a surface is clean enough for food preparation.
• ISSA (School Cleaning Standard Board) uses ATP for its Clean Standard
• Blue Chip companies and hospitals use ATP for measuring the hygienic status of surfaces
P2 Probiotic Independent Testing Using ATP
This is the ATP Numerical Guideline Chart - You will notice the higher the number, the dirtier the surface:
TURI Labs is part of the University of Massachusetts and is the top testing lab for cleaning products in the US. The test surface was inoculated with a standardized mixture of ingredients (grape juice, egg, mustard, and others) known to be difficult to remove and to rapidly create biofilm. After application of the test mixture and cleaning, the surface was measured with an ATP meter to measure the cleanliness change over a 24 hour period.
You will see that P2 Probiotic Cleaner was tested against Clorox Green Wipes, a high- level disinfectant, and 409 antibacterial cleaner.
P2 i Clean EVERYTHING was the only cleaner that could meet the ISSA school standards past two hours!
This TURI Lab test shows that P2 Surface Cleaner outperforms the leading green cleaner. It also shows how water is not doing anything to get rid of contaminants that can make you sick.
Whole Food Testing
Testing at Whole Foods shows how effective our surface cleaner is at reducing the biofilm and pathogens and the ability of the probiotics to control and balance the bacterial environment. For reference the ATP levels climbed exponentially throughout the day with the Ecolab product and did not with the application of the probiotics.
The ATP testing shows that P2 Probiotics clean better than disinfectants, antibacterials, water and green, natural products... AND, they maintain a clean environment longer than other cleaners.
