Helping your environmental monitoring program work smarter

Cleaning is one of the most critical actions you can take to ensure hygienic conditions to produce safe products. Hygiene monitoring, which is a component of environmental monitoring, can help verify you are cleaning effectively. It will identify problematic areas you can address to improve the cleanliness of your operation.

When people are relying on you to confidently make high-risk decisions around cleanliness on the line, you need more than a visual assessment. You need results faster than microbiological tests can deliver. Our Clean-Trace testing system is based on the detection of ATP (adenosine-tri-phosphate) which is found in all living cells (for example food residues, bacteria, yeast, etc.). With this technology it delivers accuracy and speed, together in one simple solution. Learn more about ATP with our Back to Basics series.

See how using 3M solutions helped a food manufacturer improve their Environmental Monitoring Program

Effective environmental monitoring programs (EMPs) rely on hygiene monitoring as an integral component. A robust hygiene monitoring program that utilizes both ATP testing and microbiological testing can help food manufacturers meet regulations, assess the effectiveness of their cleaning and sanitation operations, and support food safety and quality.
