How it works

safety & traceability

 Compliant 21 CFR part 11

GLP (Good Lab Practices)

Integrated traceability system during the protocol

  • On all samples throughout the protocol
  • On the good progress of the analysis protocol
  • On the stock management of the consummables

 Rights management per user, individual login

The price you pay today to labs for making your analyzes $50 $2 007 $14 373 $53 833 $151 067
$100 $27 007 $64 373 $178 833 $401 067

*based on average premises and staff costs, after depreciation of the MICA all-in-one Equipment

For instance, if your unitary costs per test is $50 and that you plan to do 2 500 tests per year, you will save $53 833 per year

100% ROI of the MICA all-in-one Equipment after less than 1 000 analysis!

Testing Protocol

A semi-automatic quantification of culturable L. pneumophila from all serogroups (CFU/L) in 48H, and in all types of water samples.

Sample filtration
on a filtration manifold

Acid treatment – pH2
(eq. ISO 11731) 5 min

Rinsing with water
(eq. ISO 11731)

Culture on GVPC
(eq. ISO 11731)

Assimilation of the specific L. pneumophila DIAMIDEX® labeling

48 hours

 Fluorochrome marking
15 min

Washing 15 min

Counting <5 min, automated


*Colonies Forming Units per milliliter or liter

3 easy steps, less than 30 minutes of man time to conduct untill 6 full analyzes per run

Major advantages compared to ISO 11731

  • Results in 48 hours
  • Less non-interpretable results (the interfering flora does not have time to grow)
  • More accurate results : we count all Legionella pneumophila microcolony present and not only few representative colonies.
  • Linear counting between 1 and >100 000 CFU/l per membrane (different from GVPC Plate, linear between 30 and 150 colonies)
  • No need to make several conditions (dilution, thermal shock…) to eliminate the Interferent Flora.
