Fast results thanks to the Vivalytic SARS-CoV-2 PCR test

With over 80 million cases and 1.7 million deaths reported worldwide by the end of 2020 alone, COVID-19 poses major challenges for the healthcare system and our society in general. In order to efficiently prevent the rapid spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, infection chains must be quickly identified and stopped – this is where the Vivalytic rapid PCR test helps.

Vivalytic analyses the nasal/throat swab fully automatically in just 39 minutes and directly delivers comprehensive results.

Easy handling and fewer steps for sample preparation make the Vivalytic system particularly suitable for on-site testing. As a result, time-consuming logistics chains in which samples have to be transported to the laboratory become obsolete. Vivalytic's automated process helps make the correct diagnosis much faster, gaining valuable time for medical staff in combatting the pandemic.

Thanks to its intuitive operation, tests can be easily and reliably carried out and evaluated by healthcare professionals – after only a minimum of training. This way, all resources can be put to optimal use in order to contain the pandemic and ensure everyone's safety.

Detectable viral pathogens:

  • SARS coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2)
