Rapid differentiation between MRSA & MSSA in 53 minutes

Bacterial Differentiation to Promote Targeted Therapy

  • null
    Improves patient pathways and the need for care with screening at both ward level, emergency settings and before elective surgery procedures identifying suspected sensitive or resistant bacterial staphylococcus strains.
  • Early Error Detection
    Speed is key – 53 minutes for results vs 1-3 days for culture sampling
  • null
    MRSA/SA screening contributes to current health risks by preventing contamination, breaking the chain of infection, and fighting against antimicrobial resistance and superbugs.

Clinical Significance

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.

 

Vivalytic VS Traditional Culture Methods

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.

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.
