Legionella Detection

Category Microbiology Laboratory
Test Legionella Detection
Description

For more information on Legionella please check out our Legionella Website.

Legionellaceae are ubiquitous in fresh water and estuarine environments. Most outbreaks of disease are due to Legionella found in contaminated water and biofilm found in potable water distribution systems, whirlpool spas, and cooling towers.  Transmission occurs from contaminated water that becomes aerosolized and inhaled by a susceptible host. We have a variety of different test methods depending upon the information you need:
