Vivalytic | MRSA/MSSA Rapid Test
Rapid differentiation between MRSA & MSSA in 53 minutes
Bacterial Differentiation to Promote Targeted Therapy
MRSA/SA is a qualitative RT-PCR test detecting and differentiating between methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), methicillin-sensitive Staphylococcus aureus (MSSA) and methicillin-resistant coagulase-negative Staphylococci (MRCoNS). By using one single cartridge, the Vivalytic MRSA/SA test aids in the diagnosis of MRSA infection in a speedy manner so that appropriate antibiotic treatment can be applied, and complications prevented.
|Detectable Pathogens||Specific Gene Targets|
|Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)||SCCmec/orfX junction, mecA/ mecC, SA422|
|Methicillin-sensitive Staphylococcus aureus (MSSA)|
Vivalytic vs traditional culture methods
The Vivalytic has several key advantages over traditional culture methods.
Firstly, the Vivalytic point of care device can provide fast and accurate results, crucial when it comes to treating infectious diseases like MRSA.
Additionally, with closed-system testing the Vivalytic also offers reduced risk of contamination compared to traditional culture methods. This is because it uses closed-system testing, which minimises the chances of contamination and helps ensure the accuracy of the results.
Moreover, the Vivalytic system also offers reduced time to diagnosis at 53 minutes, which is vital for effective infection control and patient care in comparison to traditional methods which can take up to 2-3 days. With faster and more accurate results, healthcare professionals can quickly isolate and treat patients with MRSA, reducing the risk of spread and improving patient outcomes.
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.
