Legionella Field Test

The Legionella Field Test is a breakthrough technology from CMT for the rapid detection of legionella bacteria in marine potable water systems– delivering test results in minutes instead of days. The test kit contains everything required to perform 10 tests, including sample collection containers and disposable pipettes.

The CMT Legionella Field Test uses an immunochromatographic assay, to detect the presence of cell surface antigens from Legionella bacteria in a sample. The presence of antigen causes the "Test Line" to turn red in colour. A "Control Line" is included which should always turn red if the test has been performed correctly.


  • The test is optimised for use with hot and cold water systems onboard ships
  •  The test is simple to use and fast, with no interpretation required
  •  Results are easy to read and obtained within 25 minutes
  •  There are no chemicals to measure or handle
  •  The test allows instant understanding and response to the water conditions
  •  Use can reduce the risk of outbreaks and litigation
  •  Regular use will increase confidence in your Legionella control
