Understanding Analytical and Monitoring Methods for Legionella in Building Water Systems

Tues, 9/18/18 | 3pm-4:30pm ET, 90 minutes

The presence of Legionella in building water systems has continued to grow in significance as a public health concern. However, the ability to provide reliable, sensitive, and quantitative detection and differentiation of live and infectious pathogens remains a significant challenge. This webcast will focus on the current analytical and monitoring techniques for Legionella and explain considerations for method selection. 

This is the first in a series of three webcasts that will to provide valuable practical information on Legionella technology and management in building water systems. In cooperation with NSF International, this series was derived from the conference Managing Legionella in Building Water Systems, held May 9-11, 2018 in Baltimore, Maryland. Topics for the second and third webcasts in the series are as follows; exact dates are to be determined:
 

  • Legionella Management Technologies for Prevention and Mitigation
  • Legionella Management and Guidelines

Presenters: 
Janet Stout, PhD, President and Director of Special Pathogens Laboratory
and Research Associate Professor at the University of Pittsburgh Swanson School of Engineering
Laura Boczek, Microbiologist, US EPA - ORD
Joseph Cotruvo, PhD, Joseph Cotruvo & Associates, LLC

Moderator: 
Grace Jang, PhD, Research Manager, The Water Research Foundation
