According to WHO, respiratory tract infections are one of the main causes of sickness rate and mortality both at infancy and at older ages. About 70 % of these infections affect the upper respiratory tract and middle ear region.

Diagnosis and treatment of respiratory infections remain the focus of attention among both therapists and pediatricians since these infections account for over 90 % of all outpatients’ complaints, especially during autumn and winter seasons.

Legionella pneumophila is a gram-negative bacterium, that proliferates in air conditioning systems, showerheads, humidifiers and inhalers and causes legionellosis or Legionnaires’ disease. Diagnosis is based on the results of bacteriological inoculation and serological tests (reaction to indirect immunofluorescence). PCR-based diagnostics are used to confirm the diagnosis.

The Legionella pneumophila Real-Time PCR Detection Kit is in vitro DNA test, which is intended for the specific identification of Legionella pneumophila in human biological samples.
