For use with Sofia 2 and Sofia.
The Sofia Legionella Fluorescent Immunoassay (FIA) uses advanced immunofluorescence-based lateral-flow technology to detect Legionella pneumophila serogroup 1 antigen in human urine specimens and is designed to test specimens from patients with symptoms of pneumonia. Legionella pneumophila serogroup 1 antigens, if present, bind to the detection particles. When the sample migrates up the Test Strip to the Test Line, the antigen-conjugate complex is bound to the capture antibody, forming a fluorescent line. If antigens are not present, the fluorescent microparticles will not be trapped by the capture antibodies nor detected by Sofia.
