The innovative solution for molecular laboratory diagnostics in urology
Vivalytic enables you to carry out laboratory tests directly in your practice – quickly, with minimal effort, and in line with the highest hygienic standards. With reliable on-site testing, your patients benefit from faster diagnoses and direct access to the optimal treatment.
Comprehensive test results with Vivalytic from Bosch
The symptoms of urology patients often have a wide variety of causes – starting with inflammation, to infections, to psychosomatic complaints. Consequently, it is of utmost importance to improve the life quality of patients by enabling quick diagnoses and direct treatments.
Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are a serious problem around the world. Due to a lack of symptoms, or incorrect interpretation of them, infections that often go unnoticed can easily spread and cause irreparable damage to the infected person, such as infertility or impairment of the nervous system.
Urologists face various challenges, especially when it comes to such a polarizing topic: in addition to the correct diagnosis of diseases that often evoke similar symptoms, they are also responsible for raising awareness among their patients and destigmatizing 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 little 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 drastically 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 numerous 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 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.
