Innovative Platform allows a 90 minutes Legionella test including Total Count

Apr 03 2004 Comments 0

The Dutch company Innosieve Diagnostics has a sensitive and fastest rapid method for your water screening including Legionella detection.


Based on Solid Phase Cytometry (SPC), the Sieve-ID® Legionella spp count plus assay gives a total count of viable Legionella spp cells in your water sample within just 90 minutes. After applying a representative amount (10-60mL) of your water sample onto the microsieve surface and performing an easy handling staining procedure the robust MuScan device searches the microsieve surface for viable microbes. Catching the microbe is easy for the MuScan due to the generated fluorescence of the cell that indicates metabolism in cells. The MuScan is able to discriminate viable Legionella spp cells from regular viable cells and gives an accurate and reproducible

result. Displaying the total amount of viable Legionella spp cells and total amount of viable cells, in the same easy handling assay gives you instant information on water quality and health risks.


With a sensitivity of 0.3 cells and detection range between 1 and 20,000 cells per sample the ease of use has never been more efficient. The dedicated sample volume depends on how you do your assay now. The microsieve can

process volumes between 0.100mL and 100mL depending on the sample type. The Sieve-ID® Legionella spp COMBI test detects and enumerates all living microbes, including the viable but nonculturable (VBNC).
