Guide to Legionella Field Tests

Legionella is a bacteria, which can cause a pneumonia-like disease called "Legionnaires' Disease". Legionnaires' Disease is fatal in approximately 20% of people infected. Infection occurs when the bacteria is inhaled from aerosols of contaminated water. Aerosols can be produced anywhere water is splashed or sprayed, but some of the most common sources associated with Legionnaires' Disease are cooling towers and showers.

We offer a number of innovative field tests which deliver results fast and reliably. Each test kit contains everything that is required to carry out the test.
