Clinical Significance

Bordetella pertussis, a gram-negative bacterium, is responsible for the respiratory infection known as pertussis or whooping cough. Other related bacteria such as Bordetella bronchiseptica, Bordetella holmesii, and Bordetella parapertussis can also cause whooping cough or mild symptoms. The transmission of Bordetella infections occurs through droplet infection. Several laboratory diagnostic methods are available, including real-time PCR, culture, and serology. Real-time PCR enables fast and accurate detection of the bacteria up to four weeks after the onset of symptoms, offering sensitivity and specificity.

With the Vivalytic Bordetella test identification of these bacterial strains becomes more accessible, aiding in the prompt initiation of appropriate treatment. This state-of-the-art diagnostic tool enhances the overall efficiency of healthcare practices and contributes to improved patient outcomes with reduced risk of infection for the user.

“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.
