AquaScreen® Legionella species

1-3 of 3


Type of PCR
Quantitative real-time PCR (qPCR)

The AquaScreen® Legionella species qPCR Detection Kit is used for DNA samples prepared with the AquaScreen® Fast Extract kit for quantification of Legionella in waters samples. The supplied primer set is specific for a broad range of legionella species, but does not detect other waterborne bacteria as required by ISO/TS 12869:2012.

Scope of Application
Applicable for water testing as described in ISO/TS 12869:2012, in research and industry for QA testing of process water. Not recommended for clinical diagnostics, testing of human samples or pharmaceutical products.
