Scan VIT® Legionella

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 amazingly short. Within only three days, you will know for certain whether - and if so, how many - bacteria are present in the examined sample. Applying the test, all grown microcolonies are confirmed, not only a selection as it is the case 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.

The analysis is easy to conduct – only few minutes hands-on time. The results are provided within 3 hours. Analysis is performed by using a fluorescence microscope. All essential expendable materials required for analysis are contained in the kit. Package size: 20 or 100 analyses.

Analysis can be performed with following samples:

  • Drinking water, cooling water (short pre-enrichment)
