Fast results with the Vivalytic RTI test

Respiratory pathogens can cause severe symptoms and outbreaks sometimes. With many different viruses or bacteria triggering acute illnesses, the diagnosis process gets more complicated and usually takes a lot of time, making a quick and efficient treatment difficult. Here is where the Vivalytic RTI test can help.

The RNA/DNA-based test can reliably and detect a total of 22 pathogens – including 14 viral and eight bacterial pathogens.

This is done fully automated with the Vivalytic Analyser: the nasopharyngeal swab is prepared in just a few steps, and the sample is placed in the cartridge, which is then inserted into the device. The test run starts automatically.

The automation of the process, on the one hand, and the extensive test options, on the other, make Vivalytic not only easy to use, but also an essential aid for the daily work in clinics, practices and laboratories.

Detectable viral pathogens:

  • Influenza A virus
  • Influenza B virus
  • Human adenovirus A/B/C/D/E
  • Human bocavirus 1/2/3
  • Human coronavirus 229E/NL63
  • Human coronavirus OC43/HKU1
  • Human metapneumovirus
  • Human parainfluenza virus 1
  • Human parainfluenza virus 2
  • Human parainfluenza virus 3
  • Human parainfluenza virus 4
  • Humanes respiratory syncytial virus A/B
  • Human rhinovirus A/B/C
  • Human enterovirus A/B/C

Detectable bacterial pathogens:

  • Bordetella parapertussis
  • Bordetella pertussis
  • Chlamydophila pneumoniae
  • Haemophilus influenzae
  • Legionella pneumophila
  • Moraxella catarrhalis
  • Mycoplasma pneumoniae
  • Streptococcus pneumoniae

Frequently asked questions

Do you have any questions? We have the answers.

How does Vivalytic differ from other diagnostic platforms?

With Vivalytic, not only are singleplex tests possible, but also multiplex tests. In addition, users benefit from the large number of tests and the time saved by automation.

Do you need additional equipment?

For Vivalytic, no other peripheral devices like laptop, keyboard, barcode scanner, or filling stations are required.

What types of samples can be processed in a RTI test?

In a RTI test, a nasal/throat swab is used as the sample type.

Are all reagents on one cartridge?

Yes, the cartridge contains everything that is required for the complete test sequence.
