Bio Lp-1 a rapid Legionella testing solution
for public health water safety and surveillance
Legionnaires’ disease is a severe waterborne disease-causing form of pneumonia that is fatal in 10% of people. Bio Lp-1 is a novel testing solution for the detection of Legionella pneumophila in water. A rapid and highly sensitive qPCR test, it detects and differentiates between Legionella genus, L. pneumophila (serogroups 1-16) and L. pneumophila sg1, in a single sample. Winner of the 2020 EU Fast Track to Innovation Award, this breakthrough technology has the capacity to transform the environmental global testing landscape for the human pathogen Legionella.
- Complete Legionella profile in 2 hours
- Simultaneously detects and identifies Legionella genus, Legionella pneumophila and Lp-sg1 from a single water sample
- All-in-one test (includes DNA extraction kit)
- Can be stored at room temperature
Bio Lp-1 is now available to order through our official distributor Genaxxon bioscience.
Under the European Commission’s Fast Track to Innovation Award, the Bio Lp-1 project brought BioProbe Diagnostics together with three other industry partners, myPOLS Biotec GmbH, Genaxxon bioscience GmbH, and Laboratorio Control, to develop this novel Legionella testing kit and bring it to the market. The consortium collaborated throughout the product development process to deliver target outputs across manufacturing, production, product testing, regulatory requirements, marketing, distribution and sales.
