Lovibond® hydrosense Legionella Systems Test Kit (5 Tests)
The Legionella System Test Kit is for detecting Legionella in a water sample — it is ideal for on-line and a variety of industrial applications.
This test procedure utilizes hollow fiber filtration modules which attach directly to the provided sample point fittings (both a 1/2” and 3/4” female threaded fittings are provided). The filtered sample increases the sensitivity of the test.
This filtration step requires no pumping — just connect the sample point fitting to the water system (such as a shower head or on-line sample point) and use the system pressure to drive the filtration.
The pre-filled syringes contain the required recovery buffer, so there is no need to measure or dilute solutions.
With results in 30-35 minutes (including sample prep-time), the test allows for immediate understanding and response to the water system conditions. Regular use will increase confidence in your Legionella control procedures and reduce risk of outbreaks and litigation!

No cross reactions observed at concentrations ≤109 CFU/L.
Staphylococcus aureus has been observed to cross react with the test at concentrations >108 CFU/L.
Legionella pneumophila serogroups 4 & 7 cross react with the test at concentrations > 6×109 CFU/L. The test does not react with any other L. pneumophila serogroups or L. species tested.
|Biocides:||The product has been tested with a range of common biocides and biodispersants used in Legionella control, at their normal maximum operating concentration. Active ingredients tested include: glutaraldehyde, didecyl-dimethylammonium chloride, isolthazoles, ibromonitrilopropionamide, ionic and non-ionic surfactants.The test gives a false positive if used with polymeric biguanide or THPS.|
|Shelf Life:||18 Months from manufacture (stored at room temp. (<30°C) in original packaging).|
