Prof. Hugh Pennington supports Legionella antigen testing
Mindful that we promote rapid Legionella testing we asked UK’s foremost microbiologist, who was recognised by the Queen in last year’s honours list. to give his expert opinion on the role of rapid testing in Legionella control and management.
Professor Hugh Pennington stated in his opinion which you can download from our website:
“Legionnaires disease is a significant cause of mortality in UK. Antigen tests are used to quickly identify Legionella risks in human disease, because the speed of analysis allows timely treatment, which saves lives. The same standards should be used in treating water systems. Legionella antigen tests exist. Test manufacturer should demonstrate their specificity and sensitivity.”
The Hydrosense test meets these standards.
