    Legionella Testing

    Man-made water systems can be a breeding ground for harmful Legionella bacteria.

    The LegionellaMAX Test Kit does away with time-consuming lab-based testing, giving you INSTANT results so you can treat your system ASAP.

    This easy-to-use test can be fully conducted on-site with no formal training and delivers rapid results within 35 minutes. It’s the most advanced, accurate and versatile technology which rapidly detects Legionella bacteria, both in water samples and biofilms taken from any source.

    Can your current testing method match that?


    Benefits of LegionellaMAX

    • 100X EFFICIENCY – Improving the previous market-leading test to 0.1 CFU per ML.
    • UNRIVALLED TESTING – Tests both water samples and biofilms taken from any source.
    • RAPID RESULTS – Simple “positive or negative” result within 35 minutes. The control line also indicates that the test is working correctly.
    • EASE OF USE – No formal training required. The pre-filled syringe containing recovery buffer and the pre-filled vials means there’s no need to measure or dilute solutions.


    About LegionellaMAX

    • Contains all the items required to perform 4 tests (2 water samples and 2 biofilm tests).
    • Designed to test for Legionella in both water and biofilms in risk areas identified by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, such as showers, industrial and domestic water systems, spas and bathtubs.
    • Uses an immunochromatographic assay to detect the presence of cell surface antigens from Legionella bacteria in a sample. The presence of antigen causes the “Test Line” to turn red in colour.
    • The filtration step concentrates the Legionella bacteria to achieve a sensitivity level of 0.01 CFU/ ML in water samples, and a sensitivity of 0.02 CFU/ML in biofilms.
