Product Description

The HY-LiTE® Rapid Microbial Test for Fuel Systems is an instrument based rapid test kit for detecting ATP associated with active microbial contamination in fuels and associated waters in accordance with ASTM D7463. Samples are reacted in disposable Fuel Test Pens and read in a meter to provide results in less than 10 minutes.

TRUSTED +

HY-LiTE® enables testing in accordance with globally recognized standard, ASTM D7463 and is recommended in guidance from industry bodies (including IATA and the aviation fuel Joint Inspection Group), aircraft OEMs (e.g. Boeing and Airbus).  It is used by many of the world’s commercial airlines and fuel handling operators.

INNOVATIVE +

The HY-LiTE® ATP test kit uses a specially formulated aqueous extraction fluid to recover ATP (a chemical produced by active microbes) from fuel samples.  The extracted ATP is reacted in a test pen with an enzyme which emits light.  The test pen is inserted into the HY-LiTE® luminometer, which provides a digital, numeric reading (relative light units, RLU) according to the level of ATP that is present.

ACCURATE +

HY-LiTE® has been validated by independent studies (Inter-Laboratory Studies).

DEPENDABLE +

The test detects ATP associated with levels of microbial contamination that cause operational problems in fuels. The test will provide measurements in Relative Light Units (RLU), which can be quantified and printed from the luminometer to provide a physical copy of the result.

HY-LiTE® is a registered trademark of Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany.
