qPCR for results you can trust
A technology gold-standard, qPCR is being increasingly used by molecular laboratories around the world due to its ability to quickly and accurately identify the presence of Legionella. Be confident in your actions and respond more quickly with this method rather than waiting 7-14 days for a culture test result. And trust that you’re getting a reliable result:
Detect viable but non-culturable cells: Detects all intact cells, including those that are viable and infectious but not culturable
Unlock a complete and accurate profile: Identify Legionella pneumophila and all Legionella species simultaneously, giving you a complete risk profile
CDC ELITE validation whitepaper
LuminUltra’s method is compliant with ISO/TS 12869 and meets technical performance criteria under 3rd party validation testing. A third-party validation of the LuminUltra qPCR solution using the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Environmental Legionella Isolation Techniques Evaluation (ELITE) program proficiency testing (PT) samples found that LuminUltra’s qPCR solution is 100% accurate at identifying Legionella species and Legionella pneumophila from blind samples prepared for proficiency testing at CDC ELITE Labs.
