Rapid on-site Legionella Test 

Genomadix™’s test quantifies the amount of Legionella in a water source in just 45 minutes so you can detect contamination in real-time.

Accurate Results
Culture testing underestimates Legionella by an average of 17-fold2 and 77% of samples degrade during shipping to the lab.3 Genomadix’s test solves these problems by enabling on-site testing with molecular-based technology. Genomadix’s test uses proprietary technology to preferentially detect live and intact (pathogenic), and not dead and degraded (non-pathogenic) Legionella bacteria.

Instant Validation of Remediation
Fast and accurate results mean your team can immediately treat Legionella contamination before it grows to outbreak levels. This can help minimize outbreaks and avoid negative publicity.
