New, Improved Legionella Testing Range from Thermo Fisher Scientific
As a market leader in water testing, Thermo Fisher Scientific is constantly looking for new ways to improve and extend its product portfolio to better meet the needs of our customers.
For instance, Thermo Scientific™ Legionella GVPC Agar (ISO 11731:2017 compliant formulation) has recently been optimized to increase inhibition of non-target organisms enabling improved recovery of sensitive target strains like Legionella anisa.
And now, we are pleased to introduce the new qualyfast® Legionella range of sample preparation and qPCR detection kits, offering a complete workflow for environmental testing laboratories. The solution enables rapid determination using state of the art DNA detection technology.
The qualyfast kits, which are stable at room temperature, offer a simple and easy-to-use workflow including;
- sample preparation to eliminate false-positives that can occur in the presence of DNA from dead cells
- rapid and sensitive qPCR detection technology in pre-dosed and lyophilized reagents, for confident determination of the presence or absence of Legionella spp. and Legionella pneumophila
- quantification standards for accurate and reproducible enumeration testing.
