The PathSpot Hand Scanner by Avery Dennison is a data collection device that uses visible light fluorescence spectroscopy to instantly detect invisible signs of bacteria and viruses that cause foodborne illness. By measuring the reflection of light off of the hands, it determines whether or not a set of proprietary markers are present. Recognized using biometric IDs, employees wash, dry and then scan their hands to check for indicators of foodborne illness. In just two seconds, employees get a clear result. If contamination is present, they must rewash and rescan their hands. Using the PathSpot data dashboard, managers have 24/7 access to view who is washing, when and how effectively, offering visibility that ensures compliance and supports a positive sanitation culture.
