Luminometer

A Luminometer is used to measure the chemical marker adenosine triphosphate (ATP). That’s a compound found in all types of plant, animal and microbial cells. When it comes to water, you can figure out the size of the microbial population present in a sample based on how much light is produced when ATP reacts with the naturally-occurring enzyme luciferase. That’s the same enzyme that makes firefly tails glow. The light the reaction produces can be measured by a luminometer. The amount of light generated is directly proportional to how much ATP is present — which immediately shows the level of biological contamination.
