Public Health Lab Uses Legipid® for Legionella in Water

The Public Health Laboratories of Castilla La Mancha (Spain) have introduced the Legipid® Legionella Fast Detection kit to determine Legionella in water. This kit was developed by the company Biótica Bioquimica Analítica, which belongs to the Science, Technology and Business Park of the Universitat Jaume I (espaitec).

The Biótica biotechnology company specialises in developing rapid tests to detect pathogens in environmental samples with several products on the market, which focus on the early detection of Legionella. Legipid® Legionella Fast Detection is the only rapid Legionella test with an international certificate, obtained through the AOAC Research Institute. Legipid is capable of detecting and quantifying the concentration of Legionella in a building in just 1 hour. It is based on capturing this bacterium thanks to some magnetic particles that have specific antibodies against Legionella bound to their surface.
