The IMMUVIEW S. pneumoniae and L. pneumophila Urinary Antigen Test is an in vitro, rapid, lateral flow test, intended for the qualitative detection of Streptococcus pneumoniae and Legionella pneumophila antigens in urine specimens from patients with symptoms of pneumonia. The assay is further intended to aid in the diagnosis of S. pneumoniae infections by detection of S. pneumoniae antigen in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF).
ImmuView S. pneumoniae and L. pneumophila Urinary Antigen Test is a rapid lateral flow test for qualitative detection of S. pneumoniae in human urine and CSF samples and L. pneumophila (primarily serogroup 1) antigens in human urine samples. The test is effective in presumptive diagnosis of pneumococcal pneumonia caused by S. pneumoniae or Legionella pneumonia (Legionnaires’ disease) caused by L. pneumophila, in conjunction with culture and other methods. Correct and early treatment is vital for the prognosis of both diseases and therefore quick methods to confirm both diseases in the initial phase are very important in order to initiate the proper antibiotic treatment as soon as possible.
- The control line appears at top of the strip.
- A positive result for L. pneumophila will produce a blue line in the middle of the strip.
- A positive result for S. pneumoniae will produce a pink/red line at the bottom of the strip.

Pneumonia is a leading infectious cause of hospitalization and death
Pneumonia is a leading infectious cause of hospitalization and death¹. Pneumonia patients present with similar symptoms, making diagnosis of the causative agent & treatment challenging.
S. pneumoniae and L. pneumophila shed antigens which can be detected in urine samples. Urine antigen testing is non-invasive and offers the simplicity of urine collection and transport. Results can facilitate early diagnosis and help support appropriate treatment, while also potentially providing a pathway to step down from broad-spectrum antibiotic therapies.
