Legionella testing: Accurate results in under 2 hours with qPCR
Both Europe and the United States have seen growing cases of Legionnaires’ disease in recent years, and the risk of new outbreaks is top of mind as buildings begin to reopen following prolonged COVID-19 shutdowns.
Legionella, the bacteria that causes the disease, can thrive in stagnant water systems. Given the right environmental conditions, it can quickly get out of control, making fast, accurate testing essential for commercial and industrial water systems.
While traditional tests can take days or weeks to deliver results, quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) technology allows you to test on-site and have the information you need to mitigate risk in less than two hours.
Watch the recording to learn:
