ADEY to Exhibit at LCA Open Day

Having recently joined the Legionella Control Association (LCA), ADEY is exhibiting at the upcoming LCA Open Day on 25 October at the Drayton Manor Hotel, Tamworth.

The LCA is a non-profit organisation which primarily assists its members in keeping water systems safe and free from Legionnaire’s disease. By raising awareness of the factors which cause the presence of Legionella bacteria, they can increase understanding of the risks that a poorly maintained system can present.

The Open Day is aimed at new and existing members of the LCA and will include presentations from the Health & Safety Executive and leading industry professionals. The primary focus will be the written scheme used when conducting a Legionella Risk Assessment. A segment is also included to cover the aims of an end-user when conducting an assessment and guidelines on how the assessment is written.

By undertaking analysis with ADEY after completing a Risk Assessment, our customers have access to our UKAS accredited Legionella and associated Microbiology testing. ADEY’s lab is one of the few in the country able to offer instant confirmation of culture-based tests and the MALDI-ToF offers full species identification for most analytical samples.

MALDI-ToF confirmations allow us to report positive Legionella results on standard read days after five and 10 days of incubation. In addition to saving two days in reporting positive samples by removing the presumptive stage of testing, we can also offer a full species level identification in most strains of Legionella.

ADEY Commercial Water Testing Manager, Nick Barsby, an independent committee member of the LCA said:

“The LCA is held in high regard within the industry. For ADEY, membership demonstrates our commitment to providing services in Legionella analysis and control to the highest standards. When you take into account our leading test facilities alongside our extensive network of drop-off points within the South East of England, we are in an excellent position to become the best Legionella analytical partner.”
