Simplifying clinical lab procurement at the UK’s only lab-dedicated showcase
IDEXX Water UK
IDEXX Water is a global provider of water testing solutions that deliver easy, rapid, accurate and cost-effective information on water quality to laboratories and public utilities around the world.
At Healthcare Estates, IDEXX will be showcasing its portfolio of products, including its most recently launched test, Legiolert®, which is an easy to use culture method for the rapid and accurate detection of Legionella pneumophila, the principal causative agent of Legionnaires’ disease.
IDEXX entered the water testing market in 1993 with Colilert®, now one of the most frequently used testing methods for the detection of coliforms and E. coli in water worldwide.
In 2014, IDEXX launched Pseudalert® for the 24-hour detection of Pseudomonas aeruginosa in hospital water systems. Pseudalert, which won the Healthcare Estates IHEEM Product Innovation award in 2014, can be set up with minimal capital expenditure within a facility, to enable in-house testing and monitoring of hospital water systems. Pseudalert gives confirmed results in 24 hours, less than half the time taken by traditional agar culture methods.
