Legionella pneumophila culture
Description: Legionella testing and analysis is performed on waters (cooling tower, public supply, etc.) by culturing, using a variety of methods depending on the sample collection source. Legionella samples are plated onto differential and selective agars for quantitative analysis. Legionella testing by non-viable methods can lead to cross reactions of the antibodies with other organisms and false positives. Legionella, are then confirmed by various identifying characteristics recommended by the CDC. A filtered volume of 1000 liters provides for a detection limit of 0.1 cfu/ml
