THE TECHNOLOGY FOR RISK ANALYSIS AND MONITORING
FOR CONTINUOUS MONITORING OF WATER QUALITY
To help operators monitor the water quality of the system, WASE has an analytical tool based on the second-generation ATP (2nd generation ATP® from LuminUltra) available.
This technology has been optimized taking into account different types of water:
This kit has several applications in medicine, health and well-being and, in particular, in the context of the prevention of nosocomial infections.
WASE offers this service in its risk assessments, if so requested.
With this method it is possible to make preventive decisions to mitigate the risk of Legionella and other pathogenic microorganisms, thus ensuring safe water.
É exigido em Portugal, que “qualquer caso notificado de Doença dos Legionários deve ser alvo de uma investigação epidemiológica, incluindo um estudo ambiental completo de possíveis fontes de infecção (…)nomeadamente se a fonte de infecção for um equipamento de utilização colectiva” (Circular normativa, de 22 de Abril de 2004, Direcção Geral de Saúde).
