The all-in-one solution for dermatological laboratory tests
With Vivalytic, you can carry out laboratory tests directly in your practice – quickly, with minimal effort, and in line with the highest hygienic standards. This enables you to reach a diagnose faster, giving your patients direct access to the optimal treatment.
Molecular diagnostics directly in your practice
Every day, dermatologists are confronted with various clinical pictures, which often call for quick and reliable diagnostics. In the past, this required either a high level of logistical effort or a significant investment in comprehensive laboratory equipment. Vivalytic provides the optimal solution.
Dermatological cases often require urgent action in order to relieve the patient from pain and discomfort. However, a diagnosis must be based on reliable test results and when dealing with external labs, these can take up to several days. The only other option, an in-house laboratory, entails considerable investment in trained staff and professional equipment, which not every practice is lucky enough to have.
Vivalytic is the all-in-one solution for molecular diagnostics directly on site: with just one device and the accompanying test cartridges, samples can be tested in a short time. The Vivalytic Analyser detects pathogens and differentiates between those that evoke similar symptoms – for reliable and quick diagnostics.
It is so intuitive to use that even healthcare professionals with little laboratory experience can carry out tests independently after just a short training session. The elimination of complex logistics chains and manual preparation of samples also saves valuable time, which benefits the patient and staff directly.

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 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.
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.
