Hydrosense Smartphone Reader App
To complement the already significant time-to result saving (10 to 14 days for lab culture tests versus 25 minutes for the rapid on-site test) and further accelerate the decision-making process when Legionella is detected in a water system Hydrosense developed the Hydrosense Pro Smartphone Reader App and an Online Portal. These tools, when combined, provide the fastest way to progress from taking a water sample to providing an actionable result to the duty holder for the facility being risk managed for Legionella.
Hydrosense Pro offers additional benefits to all customers:
- The App makes it easier to read the test accurately. It provides a user with a semi-quantified result by returning a score of “0” for no Legionella detected, or a Hazard Index of “1-10” depending on the concentration of the Legionella found.
- Data collected by the App is automatically synchronized with the Portal. This real-time integration ensures that a track record is kept of all results and helps to identify future trends.
- All results are stored in a central, secure database; providing a better dataset for epidemiological and risk analysis.
- Recorded information on location, time and the type of system being tested allows identification of areas of increased risk. Consequently, enabling the user to effectively mitigate any risk by making better-informed decisions.
The App is very easy to use and it is free to all Hydrosense customers.
The Portal offers functionality to produce conformance reports for record keeping.
