Legionella Advanced Warning System Product Details
AquaMedix, LLC is pleased to introduce the Legionella Advanced Warning (LAW) System. The System is revolutionizing the approach to Legionella detection and control. The LAW system periodically draws a sample of ambient air (up to 1000 times per week) into the accompanying cartridge, where Legionella bacterium settle on the nutrient rich detection site. A patented optical density measurement determines if microbial contamination is present.
LAW is linked to cloud-based computerized mapping which allows for an on-line, almost real time, detection of low levels of Legionella. Monitoring can be done 24/7 with simple plug and play set-up with no additional monitoring systems needed. Once Legionella is detected, an alert is sent to your users with detailed analysis. These reports can be linked to your existing IT/BMS systems. The remediation process can begin. Early detection equals early remediation!
The unit will alert in a 1-5 CFU (colony forming units) range to indicate levels of Legionella found in the air. This real time knowledge of air quality can prove indispensable in successful water treatment plans. There is no need for someone to pull samples as the analysis process is automatic. The media cartridges last a month and are easily placed in the unit with no risk of cross contamination. Positive tested cartridges can be sent to a lab to have the actual count of Legionella determined.
