Vivalytic platform 

Vivalytic is an universal, fully automated all-in-one platform for molecular diagnostics, developed and manufactured by Bosch Healthcare Systems (BHCS). It combines a time-saving fully automated approach with a broad range of diagnostic assays, delivering meaningful and accurate results in short time.

  • The Vivalytic platform enables healthcare professionals to detect either individual pathogens (single-plex assays) as well as a huge variety of pathogens (high multi-plex assays) from a given patient sample, regardless whether its DNA or RNA
  • By combining laborious manual steps on one or even multiple devices into a single fully automated workflow, Vivalytic helps saving time and delivers results much faster
  • A broad range of different sample materials can be processed, for example tissue, fluids such as blood, urine or cerebrospinal fluid, smears, stool, sputum etc. Vivalytic processes the native sample and purifies nucleic acids fully automatically before the respective analysis
  • Vivalytic supports the most widely used laboratory measurement methods in molecular diagnostics, like e.g. endpoint or real-time PCR, melting curve analysis, low- and high multi-plex arrays etc.
  • For Vivalytic no other peripheral devices such as laptop, keyboard, barcode scanner, filling stations are needed. This makes it a hygienic and space-saving solution
  • Vivalytic is easy to integrate into existing hospital, laboratory or practice IT infrastructures via standard interfaces. As a result, the test results are directly available to the persons involved in the diagnostic process 
  • The closed design and the use of disposable cartridges prevent sample contamination and reduce waste disposal to a minimum 

The universal applicability and the broad application portfolio make Vivalytic a unique all-in- one solution that can be installed in a space-saving manner. Vivalytic can be operated simply and intuitively, which reduces staff training to a minimum. In addition, no cold chain of reagents is required to run the tests with Vivalytic, providing added value in terms of ease of use, speed and laboratory infrastructure.

No, Vivalytic does not require any additional peripherals such as laptop, keyboard, barcode scanner or filling stations.

The Vivalytic platform and the Vivalytic assays will be compliant to CE-IvD regulations.

The Vivalytic system is expected to be available in Q2 / 2019 along with initial diagnostic assays, like e.g. the Vivalytic STI assay or the Vivalytic RTI assay. The test portfolio is continuously being expanded thereafter.

Vivalytic Assays

At time of launch, the Vivalytic system will be available with the Vivalytic STI Panel for the detection of the most common sexually transmitted pathogens and the Vivalytic RTI Panel for the detection and discrimination of up to 20 different respiratory pathogens.

The test menu is constantly being expanded. In addition to the initial Vivalytic STI and RTI assays, Flu A/B & RSV and MRSA are currently being implemented. Other tests including further hospital-acquired infection and respiratory infection assays, gastro-intestinal assays or urinary tract infection assays are currently under development.
