- MAN’s test vehicle will help to contain the coronavirus pandemic
- PCR test results in line with the highest medical standards are available directly on site within one hour
- More than 500 test results are possible per vehicle each day
The innovative MAN coronavirus test vehicle will make a vital contribution to containing the Covid-19 pandemic by providing fast PCR test results on site. The quicker that everyone involved at a new coronavirus hotspot are tested, including all the suspected cases, the more effectively outbreaks and any further spread of the virus can be stopped. In addition to easy planning of the mobile test vehicle’s deployment, the speed of the tests is another advantage of this innovative product. With the innovative molecular diagnostic PCR test equipment Vivalytic from Bosch Healthcare Solutions on board the MAN TGE, test results are available within 39 minutes. These PCR test devices are currently among the fastest approved devices on the market. The entire process including smear, sample preparation and testing therefore takes less than an hour.
When deployed for mobile use, for example at border crossings along the motorway, the MAN coronavirus test vehicle displays another of its strengths: flexibility. Test capacities can, for example, be quickly relocated as required and deployed exactly where they are needed. The mobile test vehicle is also digital. Four tasks can be performed in it in one continuous process: swab sampling, testing, analysis and communication. The PCR test results are digitally transferred from the test device to a laptop in real time. That enables a quick report to be sent directly from the MAN van to the responsible health authorities, departments, or to the person tested.
