PVT Next Day LegiPlex™ PCR delivers rapid results that confirm the serogroup 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 LegiPlex™ 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. PVT NextDay LegiPlex™ PCR adds to the list of industry-leading innovations, delivering Legionella serogroup results present in a water sample the day after sampling. LegiPlex™ is a simultaneous multi-reaction (multiplex) real-time PCR for the detection of Legionella pneumophila sg 1, Legionella pneumophila sg 2-15, and Legionella genus. This innovative assay meets the methodological, performance, and quality control requirements outlined by the International Standards Organization (ISO), achieving ISO 12869:2019 compliance for a limit of detection and specificity. PVT Next Day LegiPlex™ PCR provides building owners with critical data about the safety of their water systems, allowing them to make defensible decisions.
