Legionella Control And Prevention System

MicroChem is the 01st private sector laboratory to offer Legionella testing services in Sri Lanka and Maldives. Our Legionella consultants are highly experienced and are able to offer a range of services to help you in controlling and preventing Legionella in water systems. Legionella pneumophila is a bacteria that can survive and multiply in clean water. Legionnaires’ disease is a kind of pneumonia that can acquire due to breathing of water droplets contaminated with Legionella bacteria. Therefore, it is essential to ensure that your hot and cold water systems and cooling towers are free from Legionella bacteria.
