Laboratory tests for gynaecology – fully automated and reliable
With Vivalytic, you can carry out laboratory tests directly in your practice – quickly, with little effort, and in line with optimal hygienic standards. This enables you to reach a diagnose faster, giving your patients direct access to the optimal treatment.
Clear test results with no detours
The early detection of infections is of fundamental importance, especially in the field of gynaecology. This is not only to avoid further spread, but, above all, to protect the patient from serious long-term consequences.
Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are a significant problem around the world. Due to a lack of symptoms or incorrect interpretation of them, infections often go unnoticed, not only allowing them to spread easily, but causing irreparable damage to the infected person, such as infertility or impairment of the nervous system, as well.
Gynaecologists face various challenges, especially when it comes to such a polarizing topic: in addition to the correct diagnosis of often asymptomatic diseases, they are also responsible for raising awareness among their patients, in order to destigmatize the topic.
This work takes up time and resources – especially when complex logistic chains for transporting samples need to be organized in order to test them. With Vivalytic, this is a thing of the past: in a short time and with small manual preparation, samples can now be analyzed directly in the practice. Thanks to the fully automated processes, medical personnel without laboratory experience can also safely perform the test. This saves valuable time that can be invested directly in the well-being of the patient – whether for advice or direct treatment.
If an infection is suspected, the time between sampling and diagnosis is significantly reduced when using Vivalytic. Thanks to direct testing on site and the speed of the system, the results are available in short time.
The fully automatic Vivalytic STI test reliably differentiates between different pathogens that evoke similar symptoms:
- Chlamydia trachomatis
- Neisseria gonorrhoeae
- Trichomonas vaginalis
- Treponema pallidum
- Herpes simplex virus I
- Herpes simplex virus II
- Mycoplasma hominis
- Mycoplasma genitalium
- Ureaplasma urealyticum
- Haemophilus ducreyi

Frequently asked questions
Do you have any questions? We've got 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.
