With detection at levels as low as 20 mU/L, well below established US and EU regulatory thresholds of 350 mU/L, F-AP provides an early warning indicator of improper pasteurization. F-AP is approved for use by US National Conference of Interstate Milk Shipments (NCIMS), and New Zealand Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry (MAF). All Australian states have also approved the method being used in accordance with manufacturer’s instructions to undertake phosphatase testing to assess the effectiveness of pasteurization for liquid milk products.
Benefits of F-AP Test Include:

The novaLUM® II ATP detection system utilises a technologically advanced photomultiplier tube (PMT) that is more sensitive to ATP (adenosine triphosphate) presence allowing detection of lower levels of microbial and organic matter contamination. This is a distinct advantage over systems that use less sensitive PMTs or photodiodes. The novaLUM II system’s PMT has low noise, a greater dynamic range, a faster response time and accuracy over a wider temperature range.
Cost Effective Speed
A high-speed data processor allows a quicker 5 second read time. Risks can be assessed immediately, corrective actions expedited, and production started with confidence. Reduce testing time by as much as 83% compared to other systems.
Meet internal and 3rd party audits with novaLUM II ATP detection system’s Swab Site Location, Re-test option, and a variety of other customisable features to comply with HACCP and GFSI documentation. The novaLUM II system even identifies areas that have not been re-cleaned and/or re-tested. Charm provides calibration documentation, ATP standards, comprehensive on-site trainings, and certification to meet individual requirements.
Improved Data Analytics
The novaLUM II system has improved onboard data analysis tools. This includes the ability to search historical results and add corrective action results and to generate graphs for rapid analysis of Pass/Fail percentages for key areas of the plant. With built-in wireless connectivity these graphs can be emailed to key managers immediately after test has been completed.

PocketSwab Plus ATP Swab
AllerGiene Swab for allergen control
The AllerGiene® ATP Swab is a simple 20-second test with super sensitivity to allergenic food residues that achieves detection comparable to specific allergen methods. The AllerGiene swab can be implemented into HARCP programs, helping manufacturers prevent allergen cross-contamination by immediately verifying the cleaning and removal of food residues from shared processing lines.
AlerGiene ATP Swab:
AllerGiene simple procedure.
WaterGiene Swab for water quality
WaterGiene ATP Swab is a simple 20-second test with enhanced sensitivity measuring total ATP (adenosine triphosphate) in water and on wet surfaces. ATP presence is an indicator of microorganisms, plant, animal, or food material, and other biologicals. The sensitive WaterGiene swab is sutiable for testing Purified Water Systems, food processing plants, and Hospitals.

FieldSwab Swab for outdoor use
The Charm® FieldSwab® is a room temperature stable hygiene swab that rapidly detects ATP (adenosine triphosphate) as a measure of surface cleanliness. The FieldSwab is uniquely engineered to allow food safety programs to be implemented outdoors in “field” type applications or environments. Examples of outdoor applications for the FieldSwab are truck wash stations, cooling tower waters, worker hygiene compliance, and fresh-cut produce where water bio-quality, harvesting, transportation and storage equipment are monitored in just 30 seconds.
The FieldSwab is easily integrated with Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) programs, and has complete data tracking for food safety audits and trace back. ATP is present in all microbes and organic debris, which makes it an excellent indicator of surface hygiene. The FieldSwab complements the ATP based PocketSwab Plus which is used extensively by the food industry in processing and packing facilities.

Rowe Scientific Pty Ltd would like to announce the latest product from Koehler, the K88539 Automatic Air Release Value Analyser. This innovative instrument is commonly used to determine the ability of a turbine, hydraulic or lubricating oil to separate entrained air. This is a key performance characteristic in applications where agitation causes a dispersion of air bubbles in the oil.
In order to discern air release properties, the sample is heated to a specified test temperature and blown with compressed air. After the air flow is ceased, the time required for the air entrained in the oil to reduce in volume to 0.2% gives the air bubble separation duration.
Includes an integrated touch screen control panel, which guides the user from start to finish of the test operation, and provides density calculations and timing operations for measuring the air release value of the test sample.
The test unit conforms to the American Society for Testing Materials (ASTM) D3427, IP313 and related specifications. Included is an integrated circulating bath and balance, an air bath for the sinker, an automatic lift system that moves the test vessel from air source to balance sinker, and also automatically measures the time for air release for maximum convenience and reliability.
Other state-of-the-art features include an integrated circulation bath with water level indicator, integrated balance, air tube security clamp mechanism and automatic jacketed test vessel draining.
Safety features include compressed air heater overtemperature and overpressure protection circuitry.
A drying oven is available as a supplemental accessory for warming test oil to temperatures of up to 100°C
Temperature range: Ambient to 75°C
Sample Temperature Stability: ±0.1 °C
Air Temperature Stability: ±0.2 °C
Density: ±0.001 g/mL

If you work in the field of environmental management, industrial quality control or life science, it is imperative that you have the support of a knowledgeable representative who can supply your laboratory with the correct products to accomplish your filtration goals.
With samples requiring filtration, the traditional procedure sees the liquid poured onto a filter paper in a funnel, with the particulate/solid suspended being retained, and liquid slowly collecting in a receiver.
Laboratory filtration with the aid of a vacuum pressure gradient, is a fast and efficient way to filter and obtain your sample. As vacuum is used to aid filtration, the resulting particulate is dryer as opposed to using a more passive, gravity fed system. The filtrate can be collected into a flask via the use of a vacuum manifold.
Rowe Scientific have a range of products to cater for varying vacuum filtration scenarios. We offer 3 or 6 place manifolds, filter holders and receivers, funnels, flasks, tubing, vacuum pumps, connectors and more. We have created 2 kits which enable an easy initial set up for most laboratory applications.
We currently have a great price deal on vacuum filtration kits. Click here to download the PDF brochure.
