Clinical Significance

Candida auris is an emerging and often multidrug-resistant fungal species that poses a significant threat to public health. This yeast-like fungus can cause severe infections, primarily affecting individuals with compromised immune systems, those in healthcare facilities, or those with underlying medical conditions. Candida auris is particularly concerning due to its ability to persist on surfaces, leading to healthcare-associated outbreaks. Diagnosis can be challenging as it is often misidentified with other Candida species. Effective management involves prompt identification, strict infection control measures followed by treatment. The Vivalytic Candida auris test is an automated, qualitative in vitro diagnostic employing real-time PCR to detect Candida auris DNA from swabs taken from the human axilla, groin, nasal, and rectal areas.

This test serves to screen individuals at risk for colonisation, playing a crucial role in the prevention and control of Candida auris outbreaks and infections within healthcare settings.

“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.
