Legionella Testing / Biosafety Training


Dr Richard W Gilpin’s Blog

Welcome to the Legionella.com Blog

GTS Legionella Water Testing Laboratory is the oldest legionella testing company in the country (1981) and we strive to provide our referred clients with speedy and accurate results, usually within 3 business days. We also offer week long Control of Biohazards biosafety courses on various subjects involving biosafety practices and techniques, disposal of infections waste, facility design, and much more.

The purpose of this blog is to provide important information about Legionella bacteria and Legionnaires’ disease, so that you can be informed of the telltale signs of infection and contamination. We will also provide expansions of our biosafety training course subjects so that those looking to enroll will have an overview on each topic beforehand.

Legionnaires’ disease can be a serious threat to building owners liability and knowing how to identify and properly handle legionella contamination can make a difference. By providing you with the proper information through this blog about legionella and our biosafety training courses, we set ourselves apart from other biosafety companies. We are backed by recognized legionella expert and research microbiologist, Richard W. Gilpin, PhD, formerly on the medical school faculty at Johns Hopkins University, University of Maryland, and Medical College of Pennsylvania (Drexel University).
