Reliable self testing for Legionella

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.

Breakthrough technology for the rapid detection of legionella - Get accurate on-site results in 35 minutes

This innovative test kit allows the easy and quick testing of water; on-site and without training or experience; whereas Laboratory tests can take between 10 and 14 days.

  • Highly sensitive test
  • On-site
  • Fast
  • Reliable & independent
  • Audit trail: log & report the results using the Hydrosense App
  • No training or expertise required

How does the test work?

The Hydrosense test detects Legionella antigen using the well-established lateral flow test technology. The same technology is used in many medical tests. The test works just like a pregnancy test except it detects LpSG1 antigen. It works by attaching colour indicators to Legionella antibodies printed on a cellulose strip. This type of test is a specific type of lateral flow test.

What is a Lateral flow test: (LFT) technology has been in medicine for more than 30 years and is a standard type of test for hundreds of different uses: medical, environmental, food, beverage, veterinary and drug detection, amongst others.

Does it test for all Legionella bacteria? The Hydrosense test is highly specific for Legionella pneumophila SG1. This is the variety of Legionella which is responsible for the majority of legionnaires disease cases and has been responsible for all know outbreaks of the diseases.

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).

Suitable for: water collected from any source, including tap, shower, cooling tower etc
Manual filtration enhances sensitivity
Sample Volume: 250 ml
Sensitivity: 100 CFU/l
Contains: 1 Test
Total test time: approx. 35 minutes (about 10 minutes for filtering and 25 minute for the results to develop)

MSDS only required for buffer solution. Please contact us to find out more.

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.

Legionella Test Kits are also available as:

  • 10-pack Field Tests for water; Sensitivity: 100,000 CFU/l 100CFU/ml
  • 5-pack for water samples obtained by connection to pipe fitting from Plumbing Systems or Cooling Systems; Sensitivity: 100 CFU/L
  • 5-pack Swab tests for detecting Legionella in Biofilms, like surface of water tanks, shower heads, air conditioning units; Sensitivity: 200 CFU per swabbed area
  • Combination of single & swab tests
