Rapid and quantitative detection of Legionella pneumophila applying immunomagnetic separation and flow cytometry.

Abstract

Legionella is a pathogenic bacterium that establishes and proliferates well in water storage and distribution systems. Worldwide it is responsible for numerous outbreaks of legionellosis, which can be fatal. Despite recent advances in molecular and immunological methods, the official, internationally accepted detection method for Legionella spp. in water… (More)
