The new Viral Respiratory Infection Array (VRI) will be conducted on Vivalytic, a point of care platform brought to the market by Randox Laboratories and Bosch. The Vivalytic system is a fully-automated, cartridge-based platform capable of both Hi-Plex and Lo-Plex testing. The VRI test can identify SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) and differentiate it from nine other respiratory infections with similar symptoms, including influenza and all known coronaviruses.
Vivalytic cartridges are compact, technologically advanced Molecular Diagnostic tests utilising micro-fluidics to enable simple and accurate diagnostic testing. Randox patented Biochip Array Technology powers Vivalytic, enabling end-point qualitative PCR and providing multiple test results from each sample.
