INDUSTRIAL LEGIONELLA TEST

The industrial Legionella Test kit is a breakthrough in technology from Hyrdosense for the rapid detection of legionella bacteria in industrial water.  Test results can be obtained in minutes instead of days.

 

The industrial legionella kits provides the user:

  • Fast results
  • High sensitivity
  • In-line sampling

 

The test kit contains all the items required to perform 5 tests - including filters, recovery buffer, collection vessel and sample point.

 

LEGIONELLA CONTROL

This Legionella field test kit uses immunochromatographic assay, to detect the presence of cell surface antigens from Legionella bacteria in a sample.

 

The presence of antigen causes the 'Test Line' to turn red in colour.  A 'Control Line' is included which should always turn red if the test has been performed correctly.

 

These tests are optimised for use with industrial water systems, cooling towers and whirlpool spas.

 

The filtration step needs no pumping, just connect the sample point to the water system and use the system pressure to drive the filtration.

 

The test follows a simple procedure and the results easily obtained within 30 to 35 minutes.  Once the result is obtained the treatment engineer can asses the water condition and complete any treatment necessary to ensure there is no risk of out breaks and subsequent litigation.

Product details

 
Bacteria detected Legionella pneumophila serogroup 1
Detection method Lateral flow immunochromatographic assay
Lower limit of detection Up to 100 CFU/L (0.1 CFU/mL)
Specificity

Tested against a wide range of waterborne bacteria, including Acinetobacter calcoaceticus, Aeromonas hydrophila subsp. hydrophila, Bacillus subtilis, Burkholderia cepacia, Citrobacter freudii, Citrobacter koseri, Escherichia coli, Enterobacter cloacae, Klebsiella oxytoca, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Pseudomonas fluorescens, Pseudomonas putida, Pseudomonas stutzeri, Ralstonia pickettii, Raoultella terrigena, Streptococcus pyrogenes, Yersinia ruckeri. No cross reactions observed at concentrations > 109 CFU/L.

Staphylococcus aureus has been observed to cross react with the test at concentrations > 108 CFU/L.

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.

Test volume 100 μL
Suggested sample volume 250 mL
Sample parameters Sample should filter in less than 10 minutes.
Biocides The product has been tested with a range of common biocides and   iodispersants used in Legionella control, at their normal maximum perating concentration. Active ingredients tested include:   lutaraldehyde, didecyl-dimethyl-ammonium chloride, isolthazoles, dibromonitrilopropionamide, ionic and non-ionic surfactants.  The test gives a false positive if used with polymeric biguanide or THPS.
Operator time 5 - 10 minutes
Development time 25 minutes
Sample point Supplied with both ½” and ¾” female threaded fittings, additional sample points are available (part no. 100171)

Shelf life

18 months from manufacture when stored at room temperature (<30°C) in original packaging.
