To better fit your facility’s needs, we offer two different testing methods: CDC Culture and Bacterial Enzyme (Legiolert) Legionella Tests. If your water sample tests positive, we can then conduct a Slide Agglutination Test (SAT). This allows us to speciate your results, identify the specific strain of Legionella, and promptly notify your organization’s point-of-contact on how dangerous it is.

Legionella Bacteria Basics

What is Legionella bacteria?

A deadly form of pneumonia called Legionnaires’ Disease is becoming a growing danger throughout the country. The disease is contracted from Legionella bacteria that can be found in the water systems of public facilities like hospitals, nursing homes, and hotels. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have stated that the number of reported cases in the U.S. has more than quadrupled since 2000.

How can legionella outbreaks be prevented?

Organizations such as the CMS and ASHRAE have created guidelines and standards for reducing the risk of Legionella infection. The CMS has facility requirements for minimizing Legionella risk in facility water systems while ASHRAE Standard 188 also establishes minimum Legionellosis risk management guidelines.
