Hello all,
i am interested in legionella pneumophila and i would like to know if any of you know if it is possible that this bacteria was completely included in amoeba or always there is a coexistent legionella inside and outside in contaminated waters. I mean, if you are checking a potential contaminated water and you do not detect any legionella it is possible that legionella really exist in this water but all is included inside amoeba? or always that there are amoebas with legionella, this bacteria exists also freely in water? 

Thank you
