Legionella pneumophila SG1-15 Separation Kit

Automated cell separation and purification instrument

Manufacturer: rqmicro AG

Principle: Immunomagnetic separation of cells

Automation: YES

Suitability: Medium to high throughput water testing laboratories

Capital equipment required: Yes

Description: rqmicro developed this highly specific kit to simplify, accelerate and improve the detection of Legionella pneumophila SG1-15 in complex water samples, e.g. cooling tower and industrial samples. The separation kit efficiently isolates Legionella pneumophila SG1-15 target cells and at the same time eliminates more than 95% of the competing flora. It thus enables reliable and conclusive results when cultivating cells on agar or using other methods of downstream analysis. The kits are also available in the PLUS option to meet the increased requirements for the precise and reliable analysis of complex water samples e.g. from cooling towers.
Key Points:
  • Tailored to complex matrices such as industrial cooling tower or environmental water samples
  • Elimination of 95% – 99% of the competing flora
  • No potentially detrimental acid or heat treatment needed
  • Reliable results on agar plates
