The purpose of this training event was for views and experiences to be exchanged with the Regional Castilla la Mancha Government, the laboratory technicians in charge of guaranteeing public health in Castilla La Mancha, and the company Biótica, a biotechnology firm located at the espaitec Park. Biótica is specialised in developing fast tests to detect pathogens in environmental samples with several products available on the market that offer early Legionella detection. In this case, its product is called Legipid® Legionella Fast Detection.
