Clinical Significance

Gastroenteritis refers to the inflammation of the stomach, small intestine, and large intestine. The primary cause of acute gastrointestinal illnesses (AGI) is viral infections, particularly Norovirus and Rotavirus, while bacterial pathogens like Clostridioides difficile (C. difficile) can also be responsible. C. difficile is an anaerobic bacterium found widely in soil and the intestinal tracts of animals. The clinical spectrum of C. difficile infection (CDI) varies from mild diarrhoea to severe and life-threatening pseudomembranous colitis. Transmission mainly occurs within healthcare settings such as hospitals, through patient-to-patient contact, contaminated hands of healthcare workers, or environmental contamination.

The Vivalytic C. difficile panel is specifically designed to detect the presence of Clostridioides difficile toxin genes tcdA and tcdB from liquid or soft human stool samples to enhance healthcare practices. With its advanced capabilities, this diagnostic tool empowers healthcare providers in their efforts to combat C. difficile infections, contributing to more effective management of this challenging condition.

“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.
