ATP technology is a fast and accurate method to check the cleanliness of any surface in your brewery. Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is an energy molecule found in all living things (get all sciencey right here), which is why it’s an ideal marker and warning sign that a surface is contaminated or not completely clean from a living organism. Cleanliness is clearly top of mind these days with the pandemic, but it’s always been an essential factor in the professional brewing process.
We’re big fans of the Kikkoman A3 System. It literally takes seconds to use. Plus, Kikkoman’s new A3 Sanitation System is also the only system that detects ATP+ADP+AMP with one swab to give you the whole picture, and you need the whole picture.
You will learn this and more at our free upcoming webinar — Just ATP: Monitoring Brewery Cleanliness with the Kikkoman A3 System” — October 20 at 1 p.m. EST (sign up right here). Tom Boudreau, market specialist and technical brewing specialist at Weber Scientific, will share insights with Bob Ferguson, president of Strategic Consulting and a microbiologist with more than 30 years of experience in industrial and environmental diagnostics. Ferguson has implemented ATP monitoring programs in tons of food safety and drinking water applications. Boudreau is a beer nerd and science guy. He has a master’s in fermentation science and previously worked as the microbiologist for Stone Brewing Richmond.
This upcoming webinar will highlight the A3 Sanitation System from Kikkoman (a worldwide leader in ATP technology and enzyme activity detection). The A3 system is distributed in North America by Weber Scientific (a leader in making and distributing testing and lab supplies to the food and beverage industries). The presentation will delve into proper ATP testing techniques and also how Kikkoman’s new A3 Sanitation System is the only system that detects ATP+ADP+AMP with one swab to give brewers that whole picture we mentioned. Plus, it only takes three simple steps.
- Step 1: Swab — Swab the sample and insert the swab into main body
- Step 2: Measure — Shake well and insert into the Lumitester
- Step 3: Analyze — Measurements (RLU) displayed within 10 seconds
Recorded data can be displayed in a time-series by registering with the A3 system’s app. Inspection pass rates are automatically graphed and improvements can be visualized for brewers. Employees will be more conscious of hygiene and will maintain a high standard of environmental sanitation, which will help build greater trust in your brewery and products. Data will be stored in the cloud and can be accessed from anywhere in the world.
