WEBINAR: Expert Laboratory Legionella – Rapid quantification and subtyping of L. pneumophila in evaporative cooling systems
Watch on Demand
Join us for an informative webinar on the importance of monitoring Legionella in industrial cooling towers
In this session, Philipp Streich M. Sc., member of the group Bioanalytics and Microanalytical Systems at the Institute of Water Chemistry at Technical University of Munich, will discuss the importance of rapid and quantitative results in preventing Legionella outbreaks and improving risk assessment using the real-life case of monitoring water quality with rqmicro.COUNT and LegioTyper in several evaporative cooling system samples.
Philipp and the team from the Technical University of Munich, together with other project partners, worked on the WIPANO - LegioRapid - project, which aims to evaluate rapid tests for the determination of Legionella in evaporative cooling systems, wet separators and other systems that use process water. The adoption of new methods is essential as todays' standard methods relies on the highly variable, slow and energy-consuming cultivation of bacterial cells. Once the project is completed, accredited laboratories will be able to use these rapid tests to detect Legionella contamination in the event of an outbreak or as part of the VDI guideline 4250-2.
Don't miss this valuable opportunity to learn about the latest developments in Legionella monitoring and rapid test standardisation.
