Our leading-edge microbiology laboratory utilizes the two most sanctioned methods (ISO11731 & Legiolert) to determine potential exposure to Legionella. In New York state, AG Environmental is accredited by the New York State Department of Health to use the ISO11731 Legionella culture method and outside New York state, we utilize IDEXX Laboratories widely recognized Legiolert culture method for Legionella pneumophila quantiﬁcation. These are the two most recognized and recommended methods to accurately determine your potential Legionella exposure and validate your disinfection treatment.
