Isolation of legionella pneumophila from cooling tower water by filtration



Isolation of legionella pneumophila from cooling tower water by filtration



Applied & Environmental Microbiology 41(5): 1202-1205



Methods are described for detection of L. pneumophila in cooling tower water or other water sources by direct fluorescent-antibody staining. A procedure for isolation of Legionella bacteria from water samples by guinea pig inoculation is described. Two different serogroups of L. pneumophila were isolated repeatedly from 1 of the cooling towers.
