Recommended for targeted testing of Legionella bacteria in drinking water. Legionella is a gram-negative bacterium that often lives in still, warm water, but can survive under a wide range of temperatures and conditions. Legionella is most frequently found in air-conditioning units, faucets, pools, spas, showers and other water-related devices–and is cause of Legionnaires' Disease. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), between 8,000 and 18,000 Americans are hospitalized each year with Legionnaires'.
