Verify Cleanliness and Measure Microbial Contamination on any Surface Including Hands in only 15 Seconds!

The Ruhof ATP Complete® is a rapid, simple and reliable method for verifying the effectiveness of the cleaning and decontamination process of all scopes and cannulated instruments.

The hand held Ruhof ATP Complete® and the ATP Test Swab allow you to measure the exact level of contamination on surgical instruments, case karts, hand hygene and any other surface in just 15 seconds.

The Test Instrusponge, is an absorbent swab on a flexible wand, which feeds into the internal channels of scopes and cannulated instruments, allowing you for the first time to get an accurate indication of remaining bioburden after cleaning.

Initial Order comes with 25 Test Swabs, 5 3mm Test InstruSponges and 5 4mm Test InstruSponges and Software

Ruhof ATP Complete® Contamination Monitoring System offers hospitals and healthcare facilities everywhere a simple and reliable way to test for cleanliness, helping to reduce healthcare acquired infections in the workplace – assuring patient and staff safety. ATP Complete® allows you to verify your cleaning and decontamination process on all surfaces including surgical instruments, scopes, washer-disinfectors, examination rooms, operating rooms, restrooms, waiting rooms anywhere contamination can grow and possibly affect patient and staff health.


The Ruhof ATP Complete® detects Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP), the universal energy molecule found in all animal, plant, bacterial, yeast, and mold cells. Product residues, particularly blood and bioburden, contain large amounts of ATP. Microbial contamination contains ATP, but in smaller amounts. After cleaning, all sources of ATP should be significantly reduced.

When ATP is picked up by the tip of the Test® Swab and brought into contact with the unique, liquid stable luciferase/luciferin reagent in the Test® Swab tube, light is emitted in direct proportion to the amount of ATP present. The Test® Swab is then placed in the ATP Complete® hand held unit where it measures the amount of Relative Light Units (RLU) generated and displays the level of contamination present in just 15 seconds.

The hand held unit can then be synced to a PC where the reading is down-loaded to an easy-to-use database management software for tracking the results. The software program can be used to run comparison charts and produce color trend analysis graphs and reports.

The Ruhof ATP Complete® Contamination Monitoring System is an invaluable aid for Sterile Services Managers, OR Managers, GI Managers, Infection Control Teams,Environmental Service Managers and Engineers to complement established work place hygiene protocols. It is an excellent tool that can be used to enhance or identify problem areas, as well as make workplace cleanliness cost-effective and provide evidence of due diligence to satisfy regulatory requirements.
