Ever since it began, the COVID-19 pandemic has presented us with major challenges worldwide. Bright minds and resourceful innovators have been developing practical solutions ever since. One of these is the mobile testing station from MAN. Equipped with 16 Vivalytic Analysers, over 500 reliable rapid PCR tests for the SARS-CoV-2 virus can be carried out daily.

Right at the point of need – no matter where it is

Thanks to Vivalytic, PCR tests can be carried out with just an Analyser, smartphone-sized cartridges and a few manual steps. The MAN coronavirus diagnostics vehicle takes advantage of this flexibility and brings the test devices where they are most urgently needed.

While the MAN vehicle makes the logistical processes redundant, the speed of the Vivalytic PCR test further accelerates the process:

the entire test procedure for SARS-CoV-2 used to take up a lot of time, but now the test results are available in just 39 minutes. This means that those affected are informed directly, and chains of infection can be immediately broken – an important step in combatting the pandemic.

Safety as a top priority

The MAN testing vehicle was thoroughly planned and handcrafted. Both the medical equipment and the rest of the interior are easily washable, guaranteeing optimal hygiene and safety. This is also ensured by the medical staff who operate the devices: protective clothing, face masks and gloves are mandatory here.

Thanks to the intuitive use of the Vivalytic system, the staff does not need laboratory experience or extensive training. They can test directly with minimal training.
