UNIVERSAL RAPID LEGIONELLA TEST KIT
The Universal Rapid 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.
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.
