MilliporeSigma MVP Icon – ATP Monitor
MilliporeSigma MVP Icon – Rapid ATP Detection and HACCP Management
Gusmer is proud to announce a new offering from MilliporeSigma, the MVP Icon. The MVP Icon is an innovative tool that rapidly detects and records the presence of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), a molecule found in all living cells such as yeast or bacteria, including those in food and beverage residues.
Swab a surface in the winery, activate the swab’s sampling device, and record the measurement in seconds. An indication of the level of ATP present on any given surface provides an indication of cleanliness and the efficacy of cleaning processes. Routine monitoring of ATP levels at critical points in the winemaking process can provide the opportunity to optimize cleaning and sanitation protocols and prevent sanitation-based quality problems before they start.
Unique to the MVP Icon is MilliporeSigma’s validated Zones of Cleanliness system. This system is an easy to understand quantitative indication of cleanliness, using a 0-5 scale. A result below 2.5 is considered a “Pass”, a result between 2.5-3.0 indicates trace amounts of ATP, and a surface with a result above 3.0 should be cleaned again and retested. Although the MVP Icon can also be configured to read in Relative Light Units (RLU), the Zones of Cleanliness system simplifies the monitoring process and provides convenience to winery sanitation programs.
The MVP Icon can also be used in conjunction with the MVP Icon Dashboard Software, a PC based application that provides a status snapshot of your sanitation program by generating analytical trending and performance reports. The software also allows you to establish and monitor a testing schedule, providing you with assurance that your HACCP program is properly managed
