Legionella Testing / Biosafety Training

GTS Legionella Testing Laboratory agrees with CDC's statement on testing

“Environmental testing for Legionella is useful to validate the effectiveness of control measures. The program team should determine if environmental testing for Legionella should be performed and, if so, how test results will be used to validate the program. If the program team decides to test for Legionella, then the testing protocol should be specified and documented in advance.”
