Secure, innovative, efficient

The Vivalytic cartridges

The Vivalytic cartridges offer a lot of flexibility on minimal space. They make reliable sample handling and hygienic work easier than ever before.

Advantages of the Vivalytic cartridges

The innovative, self-contained system of the Vivalytic cartridges not only ensures maximum safety – it also combines a wide variety of laboratory technologies for maximum usability.

  • Regardless of its size or the number of liquid reagents, a Vivalytic cartridge contains all required reagents for a test and is compatible with every Vivalytic Analyser.
  • With the Vivalytic cartridge, even the smallest samples can be tested efficiently.
  • With the help of intelligent, programmable microfluidics, Vivalytic makes it possible to analyze a sample in two independent, parallel PCR reactions.
  • The ultrasound-assisted sample processing homogenizes and lyses even the most demanding samples fully automated – making manual sample preparation obsolete.
  • We do not only take responsibility when it comes to health, but also when it comes to the environment, which is why the Vivalytic cartridges are carbon neutral.

Frequently asked questions

Do you have any questions? We have the answers.

What does the workflow of a test look like?

The workflow is a consistent automation of proven molecular-diagnostic procedures. The process lyses and homogenizes the sample using ultrasound. Next, the nucleic acid is filtered and washed. This takes place using a bind-wash-elute on a silica membrane. Then, depending on the test, the PCR-based amplification procedure is used. The respective detection procedure depends on the test and may be based on PCR, melting curve or microarray.

Who are your Vivalytic customers?

The portfolio is aimed at all medical facilities such as laboratories, medical practices and hospitals.

Who takes care of the maintenance of the Vivalytic devices?

Bosch has designed Vivalytic to need as less maintenance as possible. Software updates will be provided with a cloud-based solution and be easily downloaded online.

Can you reuse the test cartridges?

No, the cartridges are a disposable product. Due to the potential contamination within the cartridges with samples that contain pathogens, reuse is not possible.

What test procedures can be carried out?

All common PCR procedures (detection methods) can be carried out: end-point PCR, quantitative real-time PCR, melting curve analysis, and microarray technology.

Is there a connection to LIS?

The device is well equipped for connection to information systems in the hospital or laboratory environment and supports the established standards.
