Fast, Accurate,
equivalent to the standard culture method

The all-in-one solution for self-monitoring L. pneumophila risk directly on-site

  • A simple 3-steps procedure

    Preparation of your sample, incubation, revelation. The whole 3-steps testing protocol has been adapted so the entire process could be realized directly on-site.

  • No qualification or training needed

    C4HydroTM research team has elaborated a very simple and accessible testing protocol destined to be realized by any agent without requiring any kind of training or technical qualification.

  • Low manipulation time (< 1H, tests results in 48H)

    Step 1 : sample preparation, 10 minutes.
    Step 2 : incubation, 47 H (no manipulation)
    Step 3 : Revelation & results, 50 minutes.
