The HY-LiTE® test system provides an easy-to-use, rapid and reliable method to assess the quality of cleaning processes in food and beverages production plants. It quantitatively measures ATP (adenosine tri-phosphate), which can be found in all biological residues, by specific reaction with a luciferin / luciferase reagent in a buffered solution. The emitted bioluminescence is detected by the HY-LiTE® luminometer. Opinion leaders consider the detection of ATP a tried and tested method for cleanliness monitoring according to the HACCP concept applied widely within the food industry.
HY-LiTE® is available in formats for the testing of surfaces, process water such as cooling water as well as diesel and kerosene fuels. It provides quantitative results that can be printed or documented on a PC, and it is compliant with DIN 10124.
Fast: The result is available directly, so that corrective measures can be initiated immediately, where necessary.
Mobile: The HY-LiTE® luminometer is an analytical instrument that is easy to operate and independent of laboratory equipment. The built-in temperature compensation feature is designed to ensure accurate results.
Reliable: The system’s HY-LiTE® pen, a ready prepared cuvette plus stick for sample taking, makes use of an integrated dilution step, unlike similar products from other manufacturers. Thus, results are more reliable because false results owing to residual disinfectants are prevented.
HY-LiTE® 2 can be used for a wide variety of applications:
- Surface monitoring
- CIP water testing
- Hygiene monitoring
- Fuel testing
- Metal working fluids
- Biocide efficacy testing

|HY-LiTE® 2 system|
|Dimensions, weight||11 x 13 x 28 cm (W x H x D)|
|Application||Primarily for the assessment of cleaning procedures in food production environments.
The HY-LiTE® 2 system may only be used with HY-LiTE® pens.
|Display of results||Display of the light intensity (from bioluminescence) in relative light units.|
|Working range||Linear: 0 – 99.000 RLU, Logarithmic: 0 – 5.00 log 10 RLU|
|Self-checks||An automatic self-check against a built-in standard reference light source is performed when the instrument is switched on.
Automatic correction of the background signal is performed before each measurement.
Automatic temperature compensation is performed during each measurement.
|Data handling||Optimum usage of the memory capacity due to intelligent data handling:
Over 2000 measurement results can be stored together with their complete data records (measurement result / date / time / test site / user / pass-fail interpretation). Unused memory capacity is displayed.
|Test modes||HACCP Plan, Test & Store, Test Only.|
|Display||Graphic LCD display with 14 lines and adjustable contrast.|
