Understanding Analytical and Monitoring Methods for Legionella in Building Water Systems


The presence of Legionella in building water systems has continued to grow in significance as a public health concern. However, the ability to provide reliable, sensitive, and quantitative detection and differentiation of live and infectious pathogens remains a significant challenge. This webcast focused on the current analytical and monitoring techniques for Legionella and explain considerations for method selection.  

This is the first in a series of three webcasts that provided valuable practical information on Legionella technology and management in building water systems. In cooperation with NSF International, this series was derived from the conference Managing Legionella in Building Water Systems, held May 9-11, 2018 in Baltimore, Maryland. Topics for the second and third webcasts in the series are as follows:

  • Legionella Management Technologies for Prevention and Mitigation
  • Legionella Management and Guidelines
