As part of our new legionella risk management platform (through monitoring, inspection, screening & auditing), HOMES Water Inc. is now offering on-site and emergency legionella pneumophila (serogroup 1) specific screen testing to residential, commercial and industrial water users with the Legionella Specific Field Test.
HOMESWater Inc. offers on-site service (after-hours & emergency also) for rapid biofilm and total bacteria screen testing, followed by legionella pneumophila specific testing for additional safety and peace of mind.
Legionella outbreaks are becoming more and more frequent and our collective attention as government, public and private citizens is needed in order to start becoming more aware of the lethal consequences that could result in a legionella outbreak. Proper screen testing, monitoring, auditing, inspections that are routinely conducted, as well as industry accepted methods for plumbing hygiene (chemicals, heat, etc) can enable your production facility, hospital, hotel, spa, etc, from becoming headline news (and not in a good way).
Risk Management in Real-Time
RAPID- Results on-site in minutes; ACCURATE - More accurate than lab testing for the strain that is responsible for outbreaks and deaths (SG1); ON-SITE - Testing can be conducted on site, in-situ; CONTINUOUS MONITORING - On-site and ease of use make spot checks and frequent testing effortless; SIMPLICITY - No special training is required; CONNECTED - Test results can be managed and stored in real-time, that provide an audit trail and historical results.;
Using the Legionella Specific Field Test test makes it very convenient for use at hospitals, medical centres, long term care facilities, as well as in remote locations, any area where reputation management is important and where clients are often at high risk (immunosuppressed, elderly, etc).
A general rule is that if you have a cooling tower and/or hot & cold water distribution, any commercial and industrial facility needs to have a legionella management plan.
Where the Legionella Specific Field Test can be used?
Using an innovative cell trap filter, bacteria can be concentrated, which enhances the sensitivity of the test to 100 cfu/L.
