Negative enrichment procedure for isolation of Legionella pneumophila from seeded cooling tower water



Negative enrichment procedure for isolation of Legionella pneumophila from seeded cooling tower water



Applied and Environmental Microbiology 40(4): 849-851



A negative enrichment procedure was developed which was capable of isolating Legionella pneumophila directly from seeded air-conditioning cooling tower water onto laboratory media. This procedure was based on an 8-h incubation under conditions that were bactericidal to the indigenous water microflora but merely bacteriostatic to L. pneumophila.
