CDC ELITE is the first proficiency testing program in the United States for environmental laboratories to test their Legionella isolation techniques against standardized samples. Use of a suitable isolation protocol is critical for determining whether Legionella are present in a sample and at what concentration. The goal of the ELITE program is to ensure that industry practices achieve the highest standards and reliability. The ELITE program grades laboratories for correctly identifying, quantifying, and serotyping Legionella samples.
