A History on Legionellosis

Microorganisms, including Legionellae, can adhere to natural and man-made surfaces which leads to the formation of a biofilm, protecting them from temperature extremes or biocides. The biofilm also provides stability, making it more difficult to physically remove Legionella and other pathogens, especially on surfaces with scale or corrosion. While regulations, standards, and guidelines for preventing Legionellosis have been in effect for over 30 years, the number of outbreaks continues to grow, so companies are tasked with developing practical and cost-efficient water treatment solutions to prevent legionella growth.
