Legionella Domestic Test Kit:

The Hydrosense Legionella pneumophila Domestic Test Kit uses the well established principles of membrane filtration. This test enables the detection at much lower levels that the standard test. Ideally suited to use with hot and cold water systems. This is a rapid test, yielding test results within 35 to 55 minutes.

This is the combination of

  • Hydrosense Product code 100136.
  • Hydrosense Product code 100127 Field filtration kit, which includes a hand vacuum pump.

Some are calling these test kits Litmus Cell Dipslides. So, we thought we would use that.

This kit contains materials for the performance of 5 test iterations. COMPARE THIS TEST KIT TO A LABORATORY TEST COSTING $150 TO $200 EACH WITH A WAIT TIME OF 10 TO 14 DAYS FOR THE RESULT.

The sensitivity of the Domestic Kit is 100 CFU/Liter (0.1 CFU/ml) for Legionella pneumophila Serogroup 1.

  • These tests are optimised for use with hot and cold water systems, showers etc.
  • The test is simple to use and fast, with no interpretation required.
  • Results are easy to read and obtained within 35 to 55 minutes.
  • The test allows immediate understanding and response to the water conditions.
  • Use can reduce risk of outbreaks and litigation.
  • Regular use will increase confidence in your Legionella control.
