PVT Next Day Legionella PCR™ delivers rapid results that confirm the absence of Legionella within building water systems. Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) analysis is a negative screening method that provides confirmation that there is no Legionella DNA in a water sample. High Value PCR screening using PVT Next Day Legionella PCR is extremely cost-effective compared to standard culture testing, and can be applied broadly across a building water system.
phiGenomics™ is an innovative method for DNA diagnostics that identifies Legionella with greater accuracy and detail than ever before. Utilizing
phiGenomics, Water Management Teams can analyze their building water environment for the exact type of Legionella present in the system. This data can be used to optimize Water Management Program implementation and operations.
The Phigenics Research and Innovation team is focused on innovations that improve speed, accuracy and comprehensiveness.
Innovations include the Phigenics patented TimeZero™ test method for quantitative measurement of viable Legionella and Total Heterotrophic Aerobic Bacteria (THAB).
Unlike the ISO 11731 spread plate method, the TimeZero test method begins culturing immediately in the field, thus entirely eliminating variations due to changes in water samples during shipment. Another innovation is the Phigenics Ultra Rapid DNA Extraction (P.U.R.E.)™ Protocol, which guarantees a Next Day Legionella PCR™ result by providing molecular-marker negative screen data. When the test result is negative, there is a 99.6% probability that culture-based results will also be negative.
