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 without any specific laboratory experience 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.
