Clinical Significance

Bacterial meningitis is an infectious disease characterised by infection and inflammation of the meninges, which leads to significant morbidity and mortality worldwide. Even with early diagnosis and proper treatment, 8-15% of patients succumb to the disease within 24 to 48 hours of symptom onset. While meningitis can affect individuals of all ages, young children face the greatest risk. Newborns are particularly vulnerable to Group B streptococcus, while meningococcus, pneumococcus, and Haemophilus influenzae pose higher risks for young children. Young adults and adolescents are prone to meningococcal disease, whereas the elderly are at a higher risk of pneumococcal disease.

The Vivalytic Bacterial Meningitis panel provides the capability to identify six bacterial pathogens implicated in meningitis from a single test, improving screening processes and lowering costs. With minimal steps from sample collection to result, screening for meningitis on the Vivalytic is the most effective wait to contain and prevent spread, requiring no additional further lab equipment.

“AWARD-WINNING DESIGN DELIVERS
AN UNCOMPLICATED USER EXPERIENCE”

Vivalytic Workflow

Intuitive engineering of Vivalytic ensures the analyser is user friendly. The process of patient sample to result comprises a very simple 4 step workflow.

To begin the test, the user scans or enters sample information. The cartridge code is then scanned into the embedded Vivalytic software. The user then adds sample into the dedicated cartridge slot, closes the lid and inserts the cartridge into the Vivalytic.

The touchscreen display will countdown the time remaining to test completion. Results will be displayed on the screen. Multiple Vivalytics can be wirelessly connected allowing the user to control multiple tests at one time all reporting to a master Vivalytic platform.
