How does it work?
The A-dec 2-minute DWL Digital Test monitors the microbiological quality of your dental unit water through ATP-metry. A sample of water is collected from the dental unit and put through a bacterial filter. Then a reagent is used to extract bacterial ATP, which is then quantified using a luminometer. The measurement is validated with another reagent to avoid false negatives. The entire process takes less than 2 minutes and can be done chairside.
