What does Legio EZ-TestTM do ?


Legio EZ-TestTM has been developed to provide a fast, simple and accurate tool for monitoring the presence of Legionella pneumophila in water. Using a CNRS patented innovation, Legio EZ-TestTM is the only testing solution capable of exclusively detecting culturable L. pneumophila of all serogroups, in 48 HOURS only, making it the most advanced and reliable alternative to the standard culture method.

Legio EZ-TestTM Lab solution brings a fast and innovative detection method, allowing laboratories to provide their clients a regular monitoring of their installations.

Legio EZ-TestTM Field solution, brings a global control solution directly on-site, to agents willing to optimize their reactivity by getting rid of samples transit time.

Legio EZ-TestTM testing protocols do not necessitate any technical or scientific qualification. Every agent can then be fully operational without needing any training period.
