Legionella testing

Our specialized laboratory perform specific analysis to determine the Legionella pneumophila to manage the risk of Legionnaire’s disease.

Legionella are naturally occurring bacteria found in freshwater sources, such as rivers and lakes, where the bacteria generally are present in low amounts and do not lead to disease.

However, Legionella can multiply to dangerous levels under certain conditions and potentially cause Legionnaires’ disease, or Legionellosis. People contract this disease by inhaling small droplets of the contaminated water through mist or vapor.
