FreshCheck Compared to Competitors
The FreshCheck colour-change swab is a patent pending product that is as sensitive and accurate as ATP. The FreshCheck swab is sensitive to residual and potentially dangerous organic debris. This allows you to accurately assess cleaning procedures to improve efficiency and stop wasting money cleaning areas that are already safe.
The swab is food safe and stable for up to 2 years at ambient temperatures. Which makes it uniquely easier to use and store than ATP for all our customers. Simplified storage also reduces wastage and energy costs as there is no requirement to refrigerate the product and no waiting for the swabs to reach ambient temperature, allowing instant use.
Unique Colour-Changing System
Our unique patented system uses a small form factor swab to reduce storage space requirements. It also makes the swabs easier to carry and use.
Our patent pending quenching agent reduces the risk of false positive results from residual sanitisers - a common problem with ATP systems. The quenching agent also works against a wider spectrum of sanitisers and detergents which reduces the risk of false positives and negatives when compared to current hygiene verification tools. The versatility of our system means the FreshCheck swab can be used across all sectors.
Reduces The Risk
FreshCheck uses its own unique biochemistry to detect bacterial and food debris contamination. The FreshCheck swab has been tested against ATP tools and has been shown to offer the same sensitivity to contamination.
In the real world, the pass / fail threshold is all most companies actually need to know, and the clear-cut pass / fail criteria reduces the risk of operatives “STRETCHING” the pass/fail boundaries when the result is “only just a fail” on numeric criteria. By providing a clear pass / fail result this reduces the risk of hygiene breakdown, the failure to meet audit requirements and failing to meet the standards of a due diligence defence.
