The most commonly used Legionella Testing laboratory test for diagnosis of Legionellosis is the urinary antigen test, which detects a molecule of the Legionella bacterium in urine. If the patient has pneumonia and the test is positive, then you should consider the patient to have Legionnaires' disease

What is Legionella?

Legionella bacteria is commonly found in water. The bacteria multiply where temperatures are between 20-45°C and nutrients are available. The bacteria are dormant below 20°C and do not survive above 60°C.

Legionnaires’ disease is a potentially fatal type of pneumonia, contracted by inhaling airborne water droplets containing viable Legionella bacteria. Such droplets can be created, for example, by:

  • Hot and Cold Water Outlets
  • Cooling Systems
  • Pools
  • Process Water Systems

When Legionnaires’ Disease Testing may be required

Listed below are indications of when people should be tested for Legionnaires’ disease:

  • People with severe pneumonia, especially those requiring intensive care
  • Immunocompromised people with pneumonia symptoms
  • People with a link to a setting with a confirmed source of Legionella or that has been associated with at least one confirmed case of Legionnaires’ disease
