How can ATP testing be used to validate continuously active disinfection (CAD) with the Sani-24 Wipe?

If the ATP testing should not be used to validate the Sani-24 Wipe. ATP testing is meant to validate cleaning processes. Further, the different ATP technologies can vary in sensitivity and can be impacted by disinfectant chemistry. Also, ATP testing detects both live and dead bacteria, and the CAD is intended to provide organism kill for up to 24 hours/96 touches. As a result, ATP reads may detect dead organisms and therefore produce false positive results with increased relative light unit (RLU) measurement.
