New SuperSnap system from Hygiena

HYGIENA, a leading provider of microbial detection, monitoring and identification solutions, has introduced its SuperSnap testing system, which provides high sensitivity, real-time verification of the cleanliness of endoscopes and other reusable medical instruments in just 15 seconds.

This quick process highlights whether the initial cleaning steps have been effective, so the instruments can then be disinfected, sterilised and reused. Operating on the powerful and proven adenosine triphosphate (ATP) bioluminescence technology, SuperSnap offers simple and dependable detection of ATP, a common component of all body fluids and bacteria. The system generates immediate, objective results, allowing for the rapid assessment of cleaning procedures and the timely undertaking of corrective actions. SuperSnap is claimed to be a thousand times more sensitive than conventional protein detection systems, offering increased confidence in results. The system can be used at multiple stages within the reprocessing workflow to facilitate the success of later disinfection and sterilisation procedures, which are dependent upon effective cleaning.  SuperSnap is an integrated, all-in-one disposable device.
