Legionella Hydrosense Pro Test Kit

95.00

THE NEXT GENERATION IN LEGIONELLA DETECTION IS HERE

Our new innovation, Hydrosense PRO, is just as easy-to-use and accurate as our well-established Hydrosense ONE test but now detects more serogroups of Legionella pneumophila.​

The test detects all Legionella pneumophila serogroups 1-15 and uses our unique filtration step together with the well-established Lateral Flow Immunochromatographic Assay (LFICA) technology (same technology used in Covid and pregnancy tests). In a remarkable innovation, the test is a three-line test which isolates the bacteria and distinctly identifies the presence of serogroup 1 on one test line and 2-15 on another, providing key information instantly to the user. ​

The test is highly sensitive and can detect Legionella levels of 100 CFU/L (0.1 CFU/ml). It also provides action levels at 1,000 CFU/L (1 CFU/ml) and 10,000 CFU/L (10 CFU/ml)º.

The Hydrosense test was developed by experts and independently validated for Legionella testing in high-risk areas such as hospitality, cooling towers, hospitals and care homes, spas pools and fountains, shipping, domestic water systems and more.  Its convenience and incredible ease of use make it the first choice for companies where reputation is crucial; where customers and employee safety is paramount; where clients are vulnerable and where facilities are in remote locations.

LEGIONELLA PNEUMOPHILA IS HIGHLY VIRULENT – HERE’S WHY

Our commitment to public health is unwavering, and that’s why we zero in on Legionella pneumophila. Let’s unpack how this potentially deadly bacterium has the power to negatively affect human health:

Intracellular Parasitism: Legionella pneumophila’s knack for surviving and multiplying inside host cells, especially human lung macrophages, lets it dodge our immune response.

Endotoxin Production: When this bacterium dies, it releases endotoxins that amplify inflammation in our lungs.

Secretion Systems: Legionella pneumophila can inject effector proteins into host cells, helping them set up a replicative niche, and sheltering them from our immune defences.

Considering Legionella pneumophila’s virulence and its adaptability it’s a pivotal public health concern. So, the best way to avoid it ever reaching human lungs is to find it, fast!

KEY STATS TO KNOW

97%+ of culture-confirmed cases stem from Legionella pneumophila.

90%+ of cases are caused by Legionella pneumophila serogroup 1.

100% of US outbreaks for the last 17 years have been caused by Legionella pneumophila.

40-80% is the death rate in untreated immunocompromised individuals.

10% of people who contracted Legionnaires’ disease in the community will die.

25% of people with Legionnaires’ disease, who contracted it within a healthcare environment, will die.


THE BENEFITS OF DETECTING LEGIONELLA PNEUMOPHILA

IMPROVED PUBLIC HEALTH MEASURES: Legionella pneumophila serogroup 1 is most often linked with human diseases, but serogroups 2-15 also play an important role in global health issues. So, testing for all serogroups is important for accurate epidemiological data and the formulation of effective public health strategies.

PREVENTING OUTBREAKS: Testing all serogroups of Legionella pneumophila found in various water systems allows for the early identification and elimination of the bacterium, thereby preventing possible outbreaks and protecting revenue and reputation.

COMPREHENSIVE RISK ASSESSMENT: Detecting all 1-15 serogroups of Legionella pneumophila allows for a comprehensive understanding of the presence and distribution of this bacterium in any environment. This, in turn, supports accurate risk assessment and enables targeted monitoring and maintenance approaches.
