Legionella Testing Utilizing Next-Gen qPCR Technology

Traditional culture methods are widely used for the detection of Legionella in water. This method is time consuming and often takes up to two weeks before results can be reported.   IWC Innovations now offers the latest scientific modernization in Legionella testing – ULTRA qPCR™. Our newest testing method delivers the most accurate results for testing water for Legionella bacteria. The ULTRA qPCR™ test distinguishes “live” from “dead” cells, while also detecting the Legionella Species. ULTRA qPCR™ further categorizes Legionella pneumophilia SG1/SG2 -15. Superior quantitative results are determined and can be delivered Next Day.
