Background: Despite the great health significance of Legionella, there is only little information on their UV sensitivity. Besides Legionella pneumophila only L. longbeachae has been investigated so far. Methods: In this study L. rubrilucens has been spread on buffered charcoal yeast extract agar and irradiated with the 254 nm UV-C emission of a me...

Context 1
... UV-C radiation was generated by a low pressure mercury vapor lamp type TUV 8W FAM/10X25BOX of Philips Lighting Holding B.V. (The Netherlands). It offers several emission lines in the UV and visible spectral range, but the emission at 254 nm is by far the strongest as can be seen in Figure 2. In a distance of 15 cm the obtained 254 nm irradiance was 0.47 ± 0.05 mW/cm 2 over an area of 10 x 30 cm 2 . ...
