Nontuberculous Mycobacteria Testing
Buildings that test routinely for Nontuberculous Mycobacteria (NTM) are more likely to prevent Nontuberculous Mycobacterial Lung Disease. The best way to prevent this disease is to limit the exposure to NTM bacteria. The only way to limit exposure is to determine whether NTM bacteria are present in your water system through testing.
Building occupants are at risk for several threatening waterborne pathogens. This exposure is especially risky to children and immunocompromised adults when pathogens develop due to bacteria in pipes and water delivery systems, if not constantly monitored. IWC Innovations offers a solution. Our NTM Water Safety Program enables businesses to monitor and address waterborne bacteria. The system detects when there is a danger or presence of Nontuberculous Mycobacteria (NTM) in your water system.
