Legionella pneumophila Serotype Water Test

3 Analytes Tested
See Full List

Recommended for targeted testing of Legionella pneumophila bacteria, including serotype identification and enumeration, in drinking water. Legionella is a gram-negative bacterium that often lives in still, warm water, but can survive under a wide range of temperatures and conditions. It can cause two diseases, Pontiac fever and Legionnaires' disease, collectively known as legionellosis. The majority of cases of legionellosis are caused by infection by Legionella pneumophila, particularly serogroup 1.

Legionella is most frequently found in air-conditioning units, faucets, pools, spas, showers and other water-related devices. 

This Tap Score water test package provides all required materials to properly collect and submit a sample for certified laboratory testing. Reported results will include detailed, quantified analysis for Legionella pneumophila with serotype identification  by ISO 11731 (or equivalent method).

Sampling Instructions

Every test comes with step by step instructions on how to prepare your water source, collect your water sample, and prepare your sample for return shipment to our labs.

Collection Bottles

Your kit includes all the bottles, tubes or vials necessary to collect your water sample. For most kits, however, there is only one collection bottle needed.

Sample Information Card

Your kit includes a postcard that asks for a few details about how and where you collected your sample (i.e. kitchen faucet). Just fill it out, drop it in the return box, and we'll do the rest.

Prepaid Shipping Label

Shipping is always on us. This package includes a prepaid overnight shipping label to the lab. Just stick the provided label on the outside of the box and drop it in the mail.

Return Container (If Applicable)

Some of our tests require your water sample to be cold when it reaches our labs. If this applies to your test, the proper refrigeration items will be included.
