SureFast® Legionella pneumophila PLUS


The test detects Legionella spp. DNA. Each reaction contains an internal amplification control (IAC).


Intended use:

The test detects Legionella pneumophila DNA. Each reaction contains an internal amplification control (IAC).


General Information:

The real-time PCR assay can be performed with commonly used real-time PCR instruments, equipped for detection of two fluorescence emissions at the channels FAM and VIC/HEX at the same time. The technical validation of instruments was performed on Agilent Mx3005P, Bio-Rad CFX96, Roche LightCycler® 480 II, Roche cobas® z 480 Analyzer, Roche LightCycler® 2.0, Applied Biosystems 7500, Qiagen Rotor-Gene Q, LTF MyGo Pro and R-Biopharm RIDA®CYCLER.




Article Numbers F5501
Test format 100 reactions
Sample preparation For DNA preparation the use of SureFast® PREP Aqua is recommended.
LOD (Detection limit) The SureFast® Legionella pneumophila PLUS real-time PCR has a limit of detection of ≤ 5 DNA copies. The assay limit of detection depends on sample matrix, processing grade, DNA preparation and DNA content.
