Legionella pneumophila is the causative organism for most cases of Legionnaires' disease which is a severe form of pneumonia. People catch the disease by inhaling small droplets of water suspended in the air which are contaminated with the Legionella bacterium.
The management and control of Legionella bacteria in engineered water systems is essential and regulated by legislative control measures in many countries around the World.
Accepta offer two innovative in-field Legionella testing, monitoring and detection systems that are ideal for service engineers, water treatment professionals; and building services and facilities management specialists involved in the management and control of Legionella risks.
Our Legionella risk management tools include a Legionella compliance tool kit and an innovative rapid Legionella detection test kit that employs breakthrough technology for the rapid in-field detection of Legionella pneumophila sero group 1.
Both Accepta's compliance monitoring tool kit and rapid Legionella detection testing systems allow those responsible for the management of water systems to take greater control over such systems and the risks to safety and health associated with Legionella bacteria.
