The Microgen Legionella Latex Test (MGM45) is a rapid latex agglutination test for the confirmatory identification of Legionella pneumophila from selective agar.

This kit which previously contained 2 latex reagents which differentiate between L. pneumophila serogroup 1 and serogroup 2-15 now includes a new latex reagent for the identification of a range of non L. pneumophila species, all of which have been implicated as causes of disease in humans.

The new latex reagent exhibits a high level of specificity with no cross reactivity between the species included and L. pneumophila. This improved kit will now differentiate between L. pneumophila serogroup 1 and serogroup 2-15 and the following additional species: L. micdadei,L. bozemanae 1 & 2 , L. dumdoffii, L. longbeachae 1 & 2 , L. jordanis, L. gormanii, L. anisa and L. feeleii.

This improvement to the Microgen Legionella Rapid Test makes it the most rapid, specific and sensitive test for Legionella currently available.
