You are cordially invited to attend EMLab P&K's upcoming Legionella webinar on Tuesday, June 17, 2014 (9:00am-10:30am, Pacific; 12:00pm-1:30pm, Eastern). This complimentary live webinar takes place online so you will need a computer with internet access. Your instructor will be Dr. Michael Berg.
Field workers are often called upon to identify and eliminate Legionella contaminations in buildings. This organism is a significant threat to human health, particularly for individuals who are immune compromised due to either age or medical conditions. The Legionella organism possesses unique characteristics that allow it to readily colonize homes, workplaces and hospitals. These same characteristics make Legionella difficult to detect, quantify and eradicate. In this presentation we will discuss this challenge from the perspective of a worker in the field. Particular focus will be placed on utilizing the most modern methods and technologies we have available to address Legionella detection and remediation.
The process and tools of detection Signs of possible Legionella contamination Signs exhibited by individuals exposed to Legionella Design and execution of a sampling plan Analytical methods and interpretation of lab results Recommended action thresholds for contamination Methods and applications for eradicating Legionella contamination
