Legionella Water Test

Legionella pneumophila is gram-negative oxygen worms. Legionella bacteria easily multiply in stagnant water tanks and in technological water systems. They often colonize domestic hot water installations, especially in places with low water consumption. Legionella infection occurs as a result of inhaling a water spray, therefore all kinds of showers, showers, hot tubs, jacuzzis and cooling towers are places of increased risk.

Legionella’s high resistance to chlorine is due to its ability to form a mucilaginous envelope outside the cell membrane. Fluorescence under UV light is a characteristic feature of bacteria. Testing the water for Legionella takes up to 10 days. The determination is made by membrane filtration.
