CDC ELITE Certified
What is the CDC Elite Program?
- Since 2013, Q Laboratories has proudly earned the recognition of being a CDC Elite Certified laboratory. Why is this important? Because few labs have such a prestigious honor, and twice a year Q Laboratories is trialed and tested by the Wisconsin State Laboratory of Hygiene, by receiving test samples – some of which are Legionella negative, others positive – and participating labs must then test the samples and report their results. The labs that report the Legionella results correctly, then receive documentation for the 2-consecuative panels for passing the proficiency test.
- Q Laboratories also holds approvals from AOAC, MicroVal, and AFNOR, as an ‘Expert Lab’

How Often Does Legionella Testing Need To Be Done?
According to the CDC, the minimum recommended amount of Legionella Testing performed per year, is every 3-months, or in 3-month intervals. If initial testing produces positive Legionella, testing should be increased and routine testing should be incorporated to monitor and control future Legionella contamination. More information can be found here on the CDC website.
