PUZZLED BY LEGIONELLA AND UV?
Wednesday, October 12 @ Noon EDT
This webinar will discuss the inactivation of various clinical and environmental L. pneumophila serogroups using a UV-C LED collimated beam and a point-of-entry (POE), flow-through device. Results indicate that although UV-C LED disinfection is effective, variations in L. pneumophila inactivation, wavelengths, and technology applications should be considered, especially when targeting specific isolates within drinking water systems. This is especially warranted since UV LED technology is being increasingly applied in drinking water treatment to address the public health concern of L. pneumophila and other waterborne pathogens in these systems.
