This target tube measures the Legionella pneumophila bacteria in a water sample. This species causes the disease legionellosis. The qPCR analysis is fast, the result is available within 2 hours. The qPCR analysis is an addition to the regular legionella measurements and the rapid detection makes it possible to combat sources of Legionella before they cause a problem. Target Tubes are packed per 50 pieces and are ready for use. The shelf life is at least 1 year at room temperature, if stored in the dark.
The importance of this qPCR measurement is that we can measure the quality of swimming water on the day itself instead of 3 days before.
