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.

Is there any specific training needed to operate Vivalytic?

Vivalytic is easy and intuitive to operate. Minimal training expenditure will suffice. This means that hospital staff can also operate Vivalytic.

Who takes care of the maintenance of the Vivalytic devices?

Bosch has designed Vialytic 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.

Do I need special protection while working with Vivalytic?

The risk of infection is reduced to a minimum due to the closed Vivalytic system and its cartridge.

How much will Vivalytic and the COVID-19 cartridges costs?

Bosch Healthcare Solutions cannot provide any information on the prices, as we do not market the product ourselves. The pricing policy is a matter for our sales partners.

Will the cost for conducting tests be covered by health insurance companies?

Cost coverage by health insurance companies is different from country to country. In Germany, it depends on the test. The individual steps of the test implementation are billed using individual reimbursement codes.
