Abstract

The study aimed to detect Legionella pneumophila in air-conditioned units of selected hospital wards of Medical Center Imus (MCI) and selected classrooms and offices of De La Salle University – Dasmariñas (DLSU-D). The suspected isolates were inoculated in BCYE Broth and were streak plated in BCYE Agar with and without L-cysteine, and Blood Agar for 72 hours. Among 70 samples, 115 colonies were presumptive L. pneumophila, four of which conformed to the cultural and biochemical characteristics of L. pneumophila. It was concluded that L. pneumophila were able to thrive in air-conditioned units of selected hospital wards of MCI but not in classrooms and offices of DLSU-D.
