Legionella – Quantification
Fast and specific quantification of
Legionella spp. and Legionella pneumophila
Item Number: 00230010
Lab analysis: Detection of Legionella in water and cooling water
Absolute quantification of all Legionella bacteria contained in water samples. All members of Legionella as well as L. pneumophila are detected parallel in one analysis. Quantification is carried out by colony forming units (cfu) per analyzed sample volume (normally 100 ml). Absolute quantification means that every grown colony is tested.
Results will be provided within 4 working days after sample receipt.
Qualitative or quantitative detection?
Absolute quantitative detection.
Which method is applied?
After your water sample is filtrated the membrane is incubated on GVPC-Agar for 3 days. Microcolonies are then analyzed by applying our reliable VIT® gene probes directly onto the membrane.
Which requirements are important?
- Samples: drinking water, cooling water etc., minimum 150 ml
- Biofilm: Please request our specific biofilm sampling protocol.
For an on-site analysis we also recommend our test kit Scan VIT® Legionella.
