Idexx legiolert – legionella quantification without the need for external lab samples:
The Legiolert Test detects Legionella pneumophila in water samples. This test is based on a bacterial enzyme detection technology that signals the presence of Legionella pneumophila through utilisation of a substrate present in the Legiolert re-agent. The cells grow rapidly and reproduce using the rich supply of amino acids, vitamins, and other nutrients present in the Legiolert reagent. Actively growing strains of L. pneumophila it uses the added substrate to produce a brown colour indicator. The Legiolert Test detects the cells within 7 days.
