Improved Rapid Legionella Test

LeginellaThe Microgen Legionella Rapid Test (M45CE) is a rapid latex agglutination test for the confirmatory identification of Legionella pnuemophila from selective agar.

This kit which previously contained 2 latex reagents which differentiate between L. pneumophila serogroup 1 and serogroup 2-15 now includes a new latex reagent for the identification of a range of non L. pneumophila species, all of which have been implicated as causes of disease in humans.

The new latex reagent exhibits a high level of specificity with no cross reactivity between the species included and L. pneumophila. This improved kit will now differentiate between L. pneumophila serogroup 1 and serogroup 2-15 and the following additional species: L. micdadei, L. bozemanae 1 & 2 , L. dumdoffii, L. longbeachae 1 & 2 , L. jordanis, L. gormanii, L. anisa and L. feeleii.

This improvement to the Microgen Legionella Rapid Test makes it the most rapid, specific and sensitive test for Legionella currently available.

The Microgen Legionella Rapid Test is part of a range of rapid latex agglutination tests that includes:

  • Clostridium difficile
  • Salmonella
  • Staphylococcus
  • E. coli O157
  • Campylobacter
  • Streptococcus
  • Listeria
