Legionella Water Analysis
The Pinchin Environmental Laboratory provides professional analytical services for water and swab samples. Our sample analysis identifies and determines concentrations of Legionella pneumophila, its serogroups and other Legionella species.
Testing by culture is the most reliable method in order to determine whether live Legionella bacteria is present in the water sample collected from the source. There is a 5 day turnaround for samples submitted for analysis for Legionella testing by culture as the bacteria needs to be grown in order to confirm live bacteria is present in the sample provided.
Please contact Dr. Rafic Dulymamode via our Microbiology Laboratory Contact Page to submit a sample. The sample must be accompanied by a Chain of Custody. Click here for our Microbiology's Chain of Custody form.
