Legionnaires' disease

A severe form of pneumonia caused by inhaling Legionella bacteria. Up to 18,000 people are hospitalized each year in the US with a 10% fatality rate.

Legionnaires' disease symptoms can include coughing, shortness of breath, chest pain, nausea and more.

Buildings are at risk from Legionnaires’ disease outbreaks.

Legionella bacteria in cooling towers can reach outbreak levels in as few as 7 days. Office towers, hospitals, hotels, shopping malls, and other large buildings are all at risk.

The Spartan Cube can immediately detect infection and allow decontamination before Legionella reaches dangerous levels.
