Hydrosense Legionella in Biofilms Swab Tests (5 pack)

Price £249.99

Description

The Swab test kit is intended for sampling surface biofilms. Legionella grows in biofilms, therefore testing the surface of shower heads, air conditioning units, water tanks, taps gives a very accurate picture of the condition of your water system. If Legionella is present, then the Swab test is very likely to detect it from the biofilm.

For Detecting Legionella in Biofilms:

  • Surface of water tanks
  • Shower heads
  • Air conditioning units

Sample Type: surface areas

Sensitivity: 200 CFU per swabbed area

Contains: 5 Tests

Total Test Time: 2 minutes to sample and 25 minute test

Shelf Life: 18 months form the date of manufacture

Specificity: The test has been shown to be non-reactive with the following bacteria (at 1×108 organisms per sample):

  • Acinetobacter calcoaceticus, Aeromonashydrophila subsp. hydrophila, Bacillus subtilis, Burkholderia cepacia, Citrobacterfreudii, Citrobacterkoseri, Escherichia coli, Enterobacter cloacae, Klebsiellaoxytoca, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Pseudomonas fluorescens, Pseudomonas putida, Pseudomonas stutzeri, Ralstoniapickettii, Raoultellaterrigena, Streptococcus pyrogenes, Yersinia ruckeri.
  • Staphylococcus aureus and Legionella pneumophila serogroups 4 and 7 in samples at concentrations higher than 1×108 organisms per sample may produce weak positive results. These concentrations are higher than would be expected to be present in normal water samples.
  • Legionella pneumophila serogroups 4 & 7 cross react with the test at concentrations >109 CFU/sample. The test does not react with any other L. pneumophila serogroups or L. species tested.

Biocides

  • A wide range of non-oxidizing biocides and bio dispersants have been checked for cross reaction and interference with the test.
  • The test should not be used on systems treated with biguanide or tetrakis hydroxymethyl phosphonium sulfate (THPS) based biocides.

Hydrosense App: Download the free reader app to store the results to provide an audit trail (only available for Iphones, more to be added at a later stage).
