cobas® vivoDx System

The cobas® vivoDx System is used for the rapid detection, identification and determination of antimicrobial susceptibility of live bacteria in laboratories and other healthcare settings. The system incorporates the innovative Smarticles technology, which, for the first time, combines the speed and simplicity of molecular diagnostics with phenotypic detection to deliver fast results. This rapid detection helps in staying ahead of the ever-evolving antibiotic-resistant bacteria, providing information that is critical for multi-drug resistant organisms (MDRO) surveillance and for assisting physicians in guiding antibiotic therapy.

Connectivity

Connectivity

LIS connectivity is available for the cobas® vivoDx System. The system uses either ASTM or HL7 communication protocol.

Stay ahead of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infections

MRSA infections are one of the major causes of hospital-acquired infections and are associated with a huge healthcare burden.1 Rapid detection of infections is critical for tackling the MRSA crisis. Explore the cobas® vivoDx MRSA assay for fast phenotypic detection of MRSA.
