Nanoplasmas Legionella detection kit

Why early detection of Legionella is important ?

Legionella is a bacterium found in river, lake and reservoir water. Water stagnant in pipes (for more than one week) and salt deposits in taps and showers, combined with warm weather create the most favorable conditions for Legionella proliferation and colony formation within cold or hot water systems. Thus, the bacterium may appear in hotels (especially when they are closed for the winter), ships, baths and showers, spa, fountains, heated water circuits, central air conditioning units and practically in any water system. According to the World Health Organization, Legionella is one of the 8 most pathogenic bacteria and can cause serious respiratory infections. Exposure to this airborne bacterium may occur via inhalation, even if there is no direct contact with contaminated water. Today, standard analysis methods for Legionella need several days (10-12) in specialized analytical laboratories to yield positive or negative results for potentially contaminated samples. This long delay between sampling and answer, and the resulting low frequency sampling, does not allow for early action to prevent Legionella outbreaks, in facilities including recreation centers, hospitals, hotels, resorts and other places of public interest. Nanoplasmas presents an innovative kit for ultrafast detection of Legionella in just 70 minutes instead of 10 days, required by the standard culture method.
