The PINPOINT (Portable INstant PathOgen INdicating Tool) from United Sanitizing represents a major technical advance in bacterial sampling. PINPOINT indicates the presence of the most common pathogenic bacteria in real time to the human eye.
PINPOINT offers greater coverage, does not require contact with surfaces, and can see into biofilms to indicate the presence of bacterial contamination.
More than just a black light, PINPOINT selectively identifies pathogenic bacteria on surfaces that would be impractical or costly to sample with other methods.
PINPOINT allows teams to more completely locate bacteria on irregular surfaces with unprecedented speed. Once located, teams can apply accepted microbiological testing and eradication methods.
