A revolutionary technology for tagging exclusively culturable Legionella pneumophila of all serogroups
Assimilation of a specific L. pneumophila Ulosonic Acid
Based on a CNRS patented innovation.
Legio EZ solutions use an innovative technology1, protected by 3 patent families, which combines :
- Culturing on selective growth media of the sample to be analyzed
- Assimilation only by the L. pneumophila of a modified sugar
- Development of this modified ulosonic acid present after the assimilation in the part O-antigenic of lipopolysaccharide from L. pneumophila, through a reaction based on chemistry « click » for realizing colorimetric and enzymic reaction.

Legio EZ-TestTM has been developed to provide a fast, simple and accurate tool for monitoring the presence of L. pneumophila in water.
Legio EZ-CountTM has been developed to provide a fast, simple and accurate tool for monitoring and counting L. pneumophila present in water.
Legio EZ-IdentificationTM has been developed to provide a fast, simple and accurate tool for confirming the presence of L. pneumophila and Legionella spp. colonies on Petri dishes.
