The Legionella System Test Kit is for detecting Legionella in a water sample — it is ideal for on-line and a variety of industrial applications.

This test procedure utilizes hollow fiber filtration modules which attach directly to the provided sample point fittings (both a 1/2” and 3/4” female threaded fittings are provided). The filtered sample increases the sensitivity of the test.

This filtration step requires no pumping — just connect the sample point fitting to the water system (such as a shower head or on-line sample point) and use the system pressure to drive the filtration. The pre-filled syringes contain the required recovery buffer, so there is no need to measure or dilute solutions.

With results in 30-35 minutes (including sample prep-time), the test allows for immediate understanding and response to the water system conditions. Regular use will increase confidence in your Legionella control procedures and reduce risk of outbreaks and litigation!

Legionella is the causative agent of Legionnaire’s disease, a potentially fatal form of pneumonia. Guidelines exist across the world for the control of Legionella.

In 2002, the Health and Safety Executive released guidelines for the control of Legionella, known as the L8 guidelines. These guidelines detail the key parameters that should be tested on a weekly and monthly basis to minimise the risk of Legionella proliferating to harmful levels in open water system.

The Lovibond® Legionella “L8” Test Kits contain the recommended tests for both weekly and monthly monitoring.
