Easy to use software monitors risk assessments and flushing of low-use water outlets to help fight Legionnaire’s Disease and Pseudomonas. “I’d totally recommend it, without hesitation! I love L8guard!”
Professor Hans-Curt Flemming, from the University of Duisburg-Essen, Germany, recently gave an interesting presentation entitled ‘Are my bacteria really dead?’ at the IBBS meeting (http://ibbsmeeting.org/), suggesting that bacteria, such as Legionella spp. and Pseudomonas aeruginosa, in water systems may be in a Viable But Not Culturable (VBNC) state when exposed to biocides. He basically said […]
After multiple steps of disinfection, treated wastewater is usually released back into the water cycle via the nearest body of water, many of which supply the water to reserves for everyday human uses. However, by the use of suitable technology, it is possible to reuse sewage effluent straight from the works, as long as it […]

The Bronx, one of the poorer areas of the city, was where the outbreak originated and the main area affected with 100 cases and 12 deaths being reported. Legionella can infect humans causing […]
Silver is a well known precious metal that due to unique properties, such as high thermal and electrical conductivity, became very useful for industrial and electrical applications. Properties such as malleability, lustre and being unreactive make it an attractive metal for uses such making jewelry, silverware and coins. An article in Materials today reports that […]
Copper is a trace element, of which we need around 1.2 mg per day.
A blog by a scientist/writer who attended the Legionella and Environment Action Platform – L.E.A.P 2, where she highlights what the event was like for her.
Tetras cloud-based Legionella and Pseudomonas management is fully explained in this short animation
Following the success of the first Legionella and Environmental Action Platform (L.E.A.P 01) in 2014, we have organized the second event in the L.E.A.P series.
The Legionella and Environmental Action Platform (L.E.A.P 02) will take place at the Discovery Centre in Milton Keynes on 19th of June 2015.
