Phigenics Research Challenges Accuracy Of Conventional Legionella Testing Protocol
Date:4/19/2012

ng over the coming years in commercial and institutional markets due to new Legionella Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) standards such as ASHRAE Standard 188P and others that are scheduled for official publishing over the next twelve months or so," says Ashton McCombs, President of Phigenics. "This research is very important because the last thing anyone wants is to be making Legionella treatment and control decisions based on inaccurate testing results."

"It is possible to culture bacteria immediately upon taking a water sample on-site at the facility location, and thereby completely eliminate testing inaccuracies caused by water sample transit time," says Dr. McCoy. "The problem historically has been that it was not commercially practical to implement on-site cultures at any scale. This is an important problem that Phigenics has solved by offering a field practical method to immediately start the culture on-site. Instead of shipping a water sample, the user ships the cultured bacteria. Starting the culture immediately also significantly reduces the time required before test results can be reported to the user. "
