Introducing Viable Legionella vPCR

The Legionella Testing Revolution has ARRIVED!

Culture Legionella methods can take a week or more to be reported back to the customer. This can cause a critical delay in establishing a remediation protocol and returning a building to full use after a shutdown. Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) rapid testing for Legionella has been available for many years, but PCR does not distinguish living from dead Legionella leading to potential false positives that require a culture to confirm, resulting in the same costly delays.

EST has an answer!
