Test kit for rapid analysis and absolute quantification of Legionella spp. and Legionella pneumophila


Item Number: 01280502 (20 analyses), 01280501 (100 analyses)

Quantitative detection of pathogenic germs: Legionella

Scan VIT® Legionella is the only detection technology worldwide which allows absolute quantification of Legionella. The results are highly specific and time-to-result is astonishing low. Analysis results will provide you with Legionella occurrence verification and quantification in only three days. Applying the test, all grown microcolonies are confirmed, not only an extract such as with classical methods.
Our Scan VIT® Legionella is a reliable Legionella identification and exact quantification tool. Moreover, all members of Legionella and Legionella pneumophila are deteced in one analysis.
