CDC Culture Method

The CDC culture method is used for processing both potable and non-potable samples. Potable waters are concentrated and non-potable waters such as cooling towers are acid treated to remove background bacteria and isolate Legionella. Detects L. pneumophila Serogroup 1, L. pneumophila Serogroup 2-15 and Legionella species in 7-10 days. Please use 1 Liter or 250 mL sterile sample bottles with preservative. Include 3-5 mL water sample with swabs from the same location.
