FREE ATP VS INTRACELLULAR ATP
What is ATP? Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is a molecule used by all living cells to provide energy to metabolic reactions. It is often referred to as the “molecular unit of currency” of intracellular energy transfer. As ATP is specific to living environments, its presence proves the existence of living organisms. ATP testing is a technique ...
Toxicological effects of short‐term resuspension of metal‐contaminated freshwater and marine sediments
Sediments in navigation‐dominated waterways are frequently contaminated with a variety of particle‐associated pollutants and are subject to frequent short‐term resuspension events. There is little ...
Exciting initial ecotoxicity results from the NanoRem project
No significant toxicological effects were found on soil or water organisms when ecotoxicological tests were undertaken for a range of nanoparticles that could be used for remediation projects. NANOFER 25S is one such product, made from nanoscale ...

Equipment & Solutions
The degree of luminescence depends on the amount of ATP-AMP and is quantifiable (expressed as Relative Light Units – RLU) using the Lumitester PD20. The more bioluminescence is measured, the greater the degree of impurity. The whole procedure lasts less than 30 seconds.
