The simple and reliable solution you were waiting for
LEGIONELLA RISK MANAGEMENT
With Water Test, speed and reliability are at last combined.
Legionella WaterTest reveals the presence of Legionella pneumophila all serogroups and not only serogroup 1!
- 14% to 54% of legionellosis cases in Europe are linked to other serogroups than Sg1*
- In the UK, 57% of Legionella pneumophila strains found in water are non Sg1**
Legionella WaterTest identifies only culturable Legionella pneumophila where other rapid tests do not allow this essential distinction.
It reproduces the culture conditions of microorganism in laboratory with bacterial incubation, giving you a reliability of results unmatched on the market.
