Use this dry latex agglutination test for the identification of Legionella pneumophila serogroup 1 isolated either from patients with suspected legionellosis or from environmental sources.

Blue latex particles sensitised with specific rabbit antibody are dried onto the test card. These react with Legionella pneumophila serogroup 1 antigen to form agglutination in the test reaction area.

Blue latex particles sensitised with non-reactive rabbit globulins are dried onto the test card to create the control reaction area.
