The Lab Culture is regarded as the ‘Gold standard’ in ideal conditions. However, for small island states especially in the Caribbean this method can be slow in comparison to a newly released onsite test.
In addition the lab test cannot detect VBNC Legionella which is proven to cause Legionnaires disease. The traditional Lab method can take up to 1 month to get results back in which case the damage might have already been done.
However, now for the first time, Legionella results you can trust are available in 25 minutes with Hydrosense. The difference between outbreak and containment could be as simple as the time wasted in a lab.
The truth is that conventional testing methods are slow and disconnected. This is why we recommend Hydrosense for any most island or remote locations, an immediate, simple, on-site test that makes water systems safer. For Caribbean information please contact [email protected]
The world’s fastest Legionella test. Get results on-site for the strain of Legionella that causes practically all Legionnaires’ disease cases and outbreaks in only 25 minutes.
Results obtained on-site. Removes risks associated with transportation of samples.
Simple to use, no specialist training required. One line means that Legionella pneumophila SG1 has not been detected, two lines mean that action should be taken to deal with Legionella present. Optionally, the app reader can verify test results independently.
Detects VBNC Legionella bacteria, proven to infect but undetectable via the lab culture method.
Results can be stored and shared in real-time with the Hydrosense Pro App and Portal, providing an independent audit trail and facilitating immediate action.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The Hydrosense test detects Legionella pneumophila antigen using well-established lateral flow test technology, which is used in many medical tests. The test works just like a pregnancy test negative result and two lines mean a positive result.
