Product Name
Legionella Early Warning Indicative Test

Test / Range

CFU 100 CFU/L (0.1 CFU/ml

The Legionella Test uses an immuno-chromatographic assay to detect the presence of cell surface antigens from Legionella bacteria in a sample. The presence of antigen causes the "Test Line" to turn red in colour. A "Control Line" is included which always turns red on successful completion of the test.

This test can provide a rapid indication fo the presence of Legionella pneumophila serogroup 1, the most commonly recorded cause of Legionnaires Disease. This rapid test is a very useful addition to periodic laboratory culture tests for Legionella. It should not be used as the sole method for assessing the presence of Legionella. If results with this rapid test indicate the presence of Legionella, then confirmation with a laboratory culture test should be carried out.
