Vivalytic SARS-CoV-2, Flu A/B, and RSV test*

With only One catridge the Vivalytic test differentiates between SARS-CoV-2, Flu A/B, and RSV

The high burden caused each year by SARS-CoV-2, influenza and RSV shows how important it is to identify the different viruses quickly in order to provide the patient with targeted treatment. The combination test additionally reduces costs.

SARS-CoV-2, Flu A/B, and RSV

Comprehensive test results with the Vivalytic SARS-CoV-2, Flu A/B and RSV Test

Patients infected with SARS-CoV-2, Influenza A (Flu A), Influenza B (Flu B) and/or Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) have overlapping symptoms, but the approaches to patient management of infections caused by the viruses are different. The Vivalytic SARS-CoV-2 DT, Flu A/B, RSV test detects and differentiates between these viral nucleic acids, aiding diagnosis and enabling pathogen-specific management of patients.

The SARS coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) is a respiratory pathogen which is responsible for the novel disease COVID-19. With over 10 million cases and 500,000 deaths reported as of end of June 2020, COVID-19 is challenging health care systems and society all over the world. It is important not only to have effective infection-preventing measures in place, but also to trace and break the chains of infection through extensive testing.

Influenza, also called flu, is a contagious respiratory disease caused by influenza viruses. An influenza infection causes mild to severe illness and can be lethal. In Europe, seasonal influenza causes between 4 and 50 million symptomatic cases each year and the death toll associated with influenza is estimated to be between 15,000 and 70,000 every influenza season, in terms of excess deaths.

The Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is a pathogen for acute diseases of the upper and lower respiratory tract. Especially infants and young children are at risk of developing a severe RSV infection resulting in hospitalization. Since clinical symptoms of RSV are nonspecific and can overlap with other viral respiratory infections such as Influenza and SARS-CoV-2, differentiation of pathogens is needed.

Detectable nucleic acids from the following pathogens:

  • Influenza A and Influenza B
  • Human respiratory syncytial virus (RSV)
  • SARS-CoV-2 (severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus type 2)

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 thanks to 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 SARS-CoV-2 DT, Flu A/B and RSV test?

For a SARS-CoV-2 DT, Flu A/B and RSV test, a nasal, nasopharyngeal, or oropharyngeal swab or a saliva swab sample is used as the specimen type.

Are all reagents on one cartridge?

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