Legionella Test Kits
Hydrosense is the world’s only Legionella test that can detect Legionella pneumophila serogroup 1 on-site in 25 minutes. Our Legionella test kits are convenient, incredibly easy to use and accurate. They are the ideal choice for companies where customer and employee safety are paramount; reputation is crucial; clients are vulnerable and facilities are in remote locations.
Our Legionella test kits are available for water and biofilm as Legionella bacteria can proliferate and thrive in both. The tests are highly accurate and have a recovery rate of 80% (lab culture is 64%).
They come in singles or as test kits and are available in 2 sensitivity levels – Ultra and Multi.
The Hydrosense Ultra testing range is the most sensitive range available from Hydrosense.
Sensitivity ranges from 100CFU/L for water tests and 200CFU/per swabbed area for swab tests. This range offers ultra sensitive detection for countries where actions levels and guidance are more stringent and industries where risk is high.
This range offers a targeted solution by detecting the most dangerous strain of Legionella, Legionella pneumophila SG1, which is responsible for almost all known cases of Legionnaires’ disease ever recorded.
The Hydrosense Multi range offers an action-based approach to testing.
This range can also detect Legionella pneumophila SG1, at 1,000CFU/L and 10,000CFU/L with the use of our Hydrosense visual scorecard. The higher concentration of Legionella antigen, the stronger the colour of the positive line, which can be matched against the visual scorecard to give an indication of the level of Legionella present.
These specific action levels were chosen because they correlate with Legionella guidance across the EU, USA and more.
