COPAN Wasp®: Just after having been asked to free microbiologists from the tedious task of specimen set-up to move on higher level tasks, our team got down to the job straightaway . Even if COPAN was already widely known n in the realm of collection and preservation systems, that didn’t stop us from taking up the challenge. After all, innovation is our forté. In such manner, in the year 2007, our team bolted two robots onto a Microbiology lab bench and asked for feedback. The outcome? Less than a year later, at the American Society for Microbiology meeting in Boston, Massachusetts and the European Clinical Congress for Microbiology and Infectious Disease in Barcelona, Spain, COPAN launched Wasp®, automated specimen processor, the first in its class. The development of WASPLab® followed through. COPAN has chosen to ensure a smooth transition to the scientific community by delivering automation solutions that mimic the current Microbiology environment. Our current large-scale custom automation enables the daily production and supply of nearly a million collection and preservation systems for clinical and biological samples.
