The HY-LiTE® Luminometer is the electronic meter required to use the HY-LiTE® Fuel Test Kit Pen system, which can be used to detect microbial contamination in less than 10 minutes. Results are displayed digitally on the screen of the meter and can also be printed via the internal printer.

The product works by assessing the presence and concentration of something called Adenosine-Tri-Phosphate (ATP) in water and hydrophilic particles associated with fuel. ATP is something all living organisms use as an energy store.  The presence and concentration of ATP detected in the sample is then used  to give an indication of the amount of active microbiological contamination present within a sample.
