Kikkoman Lucipac A3 sanitation testing technology

Thursday, 05 November, 2020 | Supplied by: FMCG Industry Solutions Pty Ltd



The Kikkoman Lucipac A3 technology provides high sensitivity for detecting food residue and microorganisms on surfaces that look clean but others miss.

ATP (adenosine tri-phosphate) is the universal energy molecule found in organic material such as microorganisms, food residues and biofilm. Over time ATP is hydrolysed into ADP (adenosine diphosphate) and AMP (adenosine monophosphate) by metabolic processes, heat treatment, or under acidic or alkaline conditions.

Unlike traditional ATP bioluminescence system, the patented LucipacA3 uses two additional enzymes that converts ADP and AMP back into ATP providing a measure of the total ATP present.

The system detects all three adenylates — ATP + ADP + AMP (A3) — at much lower levels than was previously possible. This produces higher sensitivity and stability resulting in a more reliable indicator of sanitation processes.

The device is designed to enable monitoring of environmental contamination, including food residues, microorganisms and biofilms that can harbour pathogens and even low levels of allergens.

The unit can be combined with the Lumitester SMART to provide real-time results in 10 s.
