Intended use:

The RIDASCREEN® Legionella is an enzyme immunoassay for the qualitative detection of Legionella pneumophila antigens in urine samples.


General information:

Legionnaires’ disease is an acute, respiratory infection which is mainly caused by L. pneumophila. It was first described in 1976 during a congress in Philadelphia, USA, where Legionnaires’ disease was given its Name. The Legionella strain belongs to the Legionellaceae family and is divided into 40 species with more than 70 serogroups. Legionella bacteria are facultative, intracellular gram negative bacteria whose peak infection rate occurs in the summer and early fall. With Legionnaires’ disease, a differentiation is made between externally acquired infections due to travel and nosocomial infections.
