The rapid molecular diagnostic test runs on the Vivalytic analysis device from Bosch Healthcare Solutions. The test just needs a swab taken from each patient and has an accuracy level over 95 percent. Results take just two hours, rather than the two day wait of traditional testing methods. “We want the Bosch rapid COVID-19 test to play a part in containing the coronavirus pandemic as quickly as possible. It will speed up the identification and isolation of infected patients,” says Dr. Volkmar Denner, chairman of the board of management of Robert Bosch GmbH.
