Hygiene Monitoring System

In an ever-evolving environment, plant facilities are undergoing a continuous transformation in their approach to hygiene and safety. With the integration of technology a revolution in established techniques has led to the development of safer, more streamlined, and cost-efficient solutions. A3 detection technology is an example of groundbreaking innovation bringing an advancement to conventional ATP testing methods.

For production areas sanitation is key as ineffective cleaning can affect the appearance of products, harbor microorganisms, and promote the production of biofilms. So, with a sanitation system detecting only ATP, you’re missing potential contamination. ATP can be unstable and decompose into ADP and AMP. So, conventional systems testing for ATP alone may fail to find the true presence of contamination and may produce false negatives. Only the breakthrough chemistry in Kikkoman A3 technology detects ATP, ADP, and AMP – more than any other product on the market.


Traditional microbiological testing can be time-consuming and cumbersome. However, with A3 technology, you receive results in under 10 seconds, a remarkable reduction in testing time. This process allows QC officers and quality assurance managers to swiftly assess cleanliness, make informed decisions, and promptly resume operations, creating a more efficient workflow.

Failure in Hygiene verification of the production environment can impose significant costs on businesses (loss, of production, recalls etc.). Lumitester SMART verifies cleanliness and hygiene minimizing such risks, being a more “strict” test than microbiological analysis of the environment, as it makes sure that the environment promoting the microorganism’s survival before contamination is not present.

Lumitester SMART Next Gen, unlike traditional methods, requires no extensive technical expertise. With all-in-one detection swab, anyone can test for cleanliness. A numerical result provides a clear visual cue about the presence of residual material, removing any ambiguity and making the process more straightforward.

Kikkoman’s Lumitester SMART technology comes integrated with a PC software and  a free mobile app. This feature enables real-time monitoring, instantly generating reports and trend analysis results from any device. This digital integration enhances functionality, accessibility, and ease of use, ensuring that data is available anytime, anywhere.

Hygiene matters everywhere.

Lumitester’s SMART unique technology has a broad spectrum of application across various industries (Cosmetic, Pharmaceutical, Clinical etc.)  requiring stringent hygiene standards. Its unique biochemistry detects bacterial and organic debris contamination both in surfaces and water used for production.
