GeneDisc® Plates – Legionella Detection

Quickly, simply and economically test any water source for Legionella

Process control, monitoring and traceability are becoming increasingly important within the healthcare environment for infection control. Pall’s GeneDisc Rapid Microbiology System enables quantification of Legionella within three hours for any type of water sample (potable water, cooling tower, sludge). Rapid and reliable results enable infection control experts and shower water, hospital water and water network managers to make quick and effective decisions on appropriate water disinfection measures. Mapping water system networks with the GeneDisc Rapid Microbiology System identifies and targets contaminated pipework and water points. Monitoring these critical points within a three hour turnaround time allows real time Legionella risk management, rapid maintenance actions and minimizes the risk for patients and public environment. Real-time PCR monitoring with the GeneDisc Rapid Microbiology System reduces environmental burden and down-time costs.
