VRI multiplex test

Rapid test for COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2)

The Vivalytic VRI test (Viral Respiratory Tract Infections) checks the patient’s sample for the SARS CoV-2 virus, which can lead to COVID-19, as well as other possible viral respiratory diseases. To prevent the continued rapid spread of COVID-19, it is necessary to identify infectious patients with and without symptoms. With the Vivalytic VRI test, physicians can quickly and efficiently distinguish between different infections with very similar symptoms, like influenza, and immediately begin the appropriate treatment. The test delivers a reliable result based on WHO guidelines in less than 2.5 hours at the point of care, i.e. in close proximity to where the patient’s sample was collected. This means a time-consuming logistics chain, in which the samples have to be transported, is no longer necessary.

The Vivalytic Workflow

Workflow
VRI cartridge

The Vivalytic platform is so easy to use that it can be handled in any clinic or medical practice without the need for laboratory personnel.

The sample is taken from the patient's nose or throat using a swab and placed in the cartridge without any complex preparation.

The Vivalytic analyser then fully automatically processes the cartridge, which already contains all the reagents required for the test.

Since the system in each cartridge is isolated, the risk of infection during handling is minimized.

 

The Vivalytic analysers required for the COVID 19 rapid test can be purchased by medical institutions such as doctors’ surgeries, laboratories, hospitals and health centres. The test can be performed directly at the point of care.
