Legionella ELITE

The Legionella module is intended for laboratories that identify Legionella from environmental water samples.

Laboratories that isolate and identify Legionella using traditional culture methods may use the samples to obtain CDC ELITE Certification. Facilities that have successful performance on 2 panels per year are eligible for this certification.

The panels can also be used to meet quality assurance and proficiency testing needs for laboratories using rapid screening methods and/or molecular methods. WSLH is an AIHA-approved PT provider.
