Legionnaires’ disease continues to be a global threat to public health. While this discovery is more than 40 years old, the prevention of this manmade disease remains elusive. Some may say this is an audacious goal, but we say it’s achievable! The solution is to control the growth and spread of these waterborne bacteria. Since water is the source, by controlling Legionella in the source, we control the risk for disease.
This CE accredited webinar describes a validated proactive strategy of looking for Legionella in the water before disease occurs. Studies show that this approach is the keystone for prevention. Testing premise water systems using environmental culturing techniques forLegionella is crucial for both the investigation of Legionella outbreaks and routine microbiological surveillance for Legionella.
