Product Description – HX-LP25™ Legionella Testing Kit

Our HX-LP25™ On-Site Legionella Water Testing Kit is an invaluable product in routine legionella control, and in emergency response and control.

The test offers straightforward results on-site in just 25 minutes.

No waiting for lab results that can take 10-14 days, no transporting of samples, just test on-site at your convenience.

Each HX-LP25™ Legionella Testing Kit Contains:

  • 1 x individual foil wrapped LFICA test
  • 1 x hollow fibre filter
  • 1 x syringe containing recovery buffer
  • 1 x 250 ml beaker
  • 1 x 60 ml syringe

This is everything that you need to complete the legionella test.

 

So What Does Our HX-LP25™ Legionella Testing Kit Test For? 

The kit tests for the presences of Legionella Pneumophila Serogroup 1, the variety of Legionella bacteria linked to the majority of Legionnaires Disease cases and outbreaks.

Please Note

Our On-Site Legionella Test Kits should not be used as a substitute to regular dipslide testing to monitor bacteria where it is required.

The test should only be used to give an immediate indication of the presence of Legionella bacteria (Legionella Pneumophila SG1).

How Does Our HX-LP25™ Legionella Testing Kit Work?

This is the world’s only genuine cost-effective ‘instant’ legionella water test, providing on-site results of potential legionella contamination.

The test can be fully conducted on-site , and requires no in-depth training or experience to carry out.

Our all-inclusive kit tests specifically for legionella pneumophila serogroup 1 (SG1) – the variety of legionella bacteria responsible for the vast majority of Legionnaires’ disease cases.

Critically, our HX-LP25™ test is sensitive at low concentrations – 100 CFU/L.

Our HX-LP25™Legionella Testing Kit is used to support existing legionella management procedures. While the testing kit should not wholly replace laboratory analysis for legionella water testing, or dipslide sampling for bacteria, it is an approved and ideal monitoring tool to aid in maintaining a healthy water system through regular, quick, reliable legionella bacteria testing.

Our 25 minute on-site Legionella test does not replace UK compliance requirements for UKAS accredited lab culture testing. If your water system circumstances dictate that lab testing is required, currently you MUST carry out a lab test, even though this will take 10-14 days to return a result. Lab tests are for compliance purposes. Our 25-minute on-site Legionella test is for risk management and risk reduction, and can be used in conjunction with lab tests if a faster result is required.
The ACoP L8 allows for rapid detection techniques to be used as part of a Legionella risk management regime.
This test kit is particularly useful in 5 situations: 1. In any environment without easy access to a lab. Many sites with critical water supplies are in remote locations without ready access to lab testing. On site testing provides invaluable reassurance. 2. Checking after a disinfection treatment. Once an infected water system has been treated, the faster it can be confirmed that the treatment has been effective, the faster everyone can get back to work. 3. Checking systems where control measures have gone out of conformance e.g. cold water too warm, hot water not hot enough, or biocide levels too low. The system may not be compromised, but a quick real time check will allay doubts and mitigate risks if a treatment is indicated. 4. Routine monitoring of water systems. If a water system is infected, then the faster this is identified the faster corrective action can be taken. The UK L8 guidelines rely heavily on the risk assessment procedure, which requires that testing regimes are tailored to specific circumstances of the water system. 5. Identifying source of outbreaks. If there is an outbreak it is important for both public health and legal reasons to establish the source as soon as possible. Immediate testing can provide immediate detection and should be carried out before any disinfection treatment as part of a sampling regime.
Our test kit is highly specific for Legionella pneumophila serogroup 1 (SG1). This is the variety of Legionella bacteria which is responsible for the majority of legionnaires disease cases and has been responsible for all known outbreaks of the disease.
