The AquaScreen® Legionella species qPCR Detection Kit is used for DNA samples prepared with the AquaScreen® FastExtract kit for quantification of Legionella in water samples. The supplied primer set is specific for a broad range of legionella species, but does not detect other waterborne bacteria as required by ISO/TS 12869.
