The testing tool can detect a positive sample in less than 30 minutes, right where the sample is collected
Thanks to improved software, the Vivalytic analysis device, a rapid coronavirus testing tool that uses polymerase chain reactions (PCR), now delivers faster test results. By applying optimised evaluation strategies, the Vivalytic analysis device can detect a positive sample through its high viral load in less than 30 minutes, right where the sample is collected.
The turnaround time for samples negative for SARS-CoV-2 is still 39 minutes with PCR tests being considered as the gold standard. The Vivalytic has a sensitivity of 98 per cent and a specificity of 100 per cent.
The new update is available for the SARS-CoV-2 singleplex test and the SARS-CoV-2 pooled test. Updating the Vivalytic testing devices is simple and straightforward – all that is required is an internet connection to access the Bosch cloud platform Vivasuite.
Developed in-house at Bosch, the Vivasuite cloud platform allows users to digitally manage and update all their Bosch Healthcare Solutions devices. This is also an advantage when Vivalytic devices are in use in the field. The platform meets the strictest security standards and data privacy is guaranteed at all times; there is no remote access to Vivalytic devices and no possibility of accessing patient data.
