PCR Assays for Legionella Detection

Legionella can be found in many different natural and artificial water systems, e.g. in drinking water, in large plants for water heating, in evaporative cooling systems, cooling towers and wet separators. Testing of water installations for the presence of Legionella spp. is therefore implemented worldwide in national guidelines.

Hygiena´s real-time PCR-based microproof® LyoKit plays a trusted role in detection and quantification of Legionella in water samples.
