  • Copan Italia
    Copan Italia
    Founded in 1979, as a small, family-owned distributor of disposable plastic lab components, it didn’t take long for COPAN Italia to take off. The company would grow quickly owing to improvements in product design. Thus, once provided with such advancements, COPAN was able to optimize manufacturing. COPAN revolutionized the world of collection and transport devices with key products and packaging improvements. In 1997, we began packaging our traditional line of bacteriology swabs in state-of-the-art VI-PAK Aluminum Foil packs to extend the product’s shelf-life by providing an oxygen-blocking barrier and protecting against damage from direct sunlight. COPAN Italia is now dedicated to standardized universal specimen collection and preservation systems for bacteriology, virology, molecular biology, forensic and environmental sampling.

  • Copan Diagnostics
    Copan Diagnostics
    When Norman Sharples struck up a conversation with Daniele Triva at a trade show in 1994, the British Microbiologist and business developer had no idea the meeting would bring about a permanent move in the United States. After all, expanding the Italian-based company into the North and South American market appeared like the perfect next step. Norman’s had but one stipulation: the company had to be located in Southern California close to the ocean. A year later COPAN Diagnostics, Inc. opened its doors in Corona, California with Norman as CEO. In 2007, the company moved to a larger facility in Murrieta, California. Two years after, COPAN Diagnostics, Inc. doubled its space by purchasing another building, a prerequisite to expand the repackaging and manufacturing of disposable loops and pipettes.
