Within a water system Legionella usually grow within biofilm (slime) found on the insides of pipe work, shower heads, cooling tower packing, or water tanks. Bacteria found in the planktonic phase (i.e. suspended in the water itself) are
usually an indicator of colonization of the biofilm.
Since a clean water sample does not equate to a clean system (proliferation of Legionella is greater in a biofilm than in water), this kit can be used to pinpoint the contamination in a system or to demonstrate cleanliness of an area after a
Use this kit to find Legionella in their breeding ground -- this very selective test can detect legionella even in samples with very high background flora. With results in about 25 minutes, 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!
