Meet Radian® BC

News

Every year, 30 million people worldwide get affected by a Blood Stream Infection, pathologies often caused by antibiotic-resistant bacteria and characterized by up to 30% mortality. In these patients, reducing the time to diagnosis is not simply a good service, as the rapidity of appropriate treatment initiation may decrease their short-term mortality.

Thus, any slight improvement in the complex and multitasked workflow that interposes between a blood sample collection and diagnosis can be life-saving.

Radian is the integrated module of our Full Lab Automation ecosystem that already eases healthcare professionals’ AST tasks by automating antibiotic disks application on WASPLab™ streaked plates followed by automated incubation, digital imaging, and interpretation to derive antibiotic susceptibility results.

Today, we push Radian even further: meet Radian BC!

Copan Group - Meet Radian® BC

Like no other AST automation available today, Radian BC guarantees the shortest 4 hours incubation time for positive blood culture samples. By reducing the incubation time for Blood Stream Infection patients to a quarter, Radian BC ensures to specialists unparalleled rapid diagnostic assessment, directing each patient towards an early intervention with a targeted antimicrobial therapy.

One phase to
make the difference

From collection and transport to specimen processing. Copan’s liquid-based approach is the key to success in both steps of preanalytics: the first leverages the advantages of the liquid phase by maximizing sample release and transforming solid, semi-solid, and viscous samples into a liquid format. On the other side, WASP® reaches maximum performance by focusing on specific technical features that gain the best from liquid samples.

Copan Group
Our eSwab® during the barcode reading phase in WASP®

A world of trust

850+ WASP® worldwide.

From the installation of the first generation WASP® instrument to the most recent, we listen and partner with our customers in the microbiology community.

This is what earned us the trust and reliance of hundreds of laboratories around the world.

Copan

Advantages

Let WASP® be your best support for automatic bacteriology sample preparation.

Utilising industry best practices, and more than 10 years of market presence, WASP® works in synergy with technologists that can be free to attend more pressing tasks: culture interpretation.

CopanGroup

Continuous loading

Avoid workflow disruptions through continuous and random loading: WASP® will communicate with LIS to discriminate the correct workup and complete it without any other interaction.

CopanGroup

End to end traceability

Enjoy full traceability of samples* and downstream workups like plates, microscope slides, and broths thanks to LIS data integration, barcode readers, and onboard printer.

CopanGroup

Best practices standardisation

Each process equal to the other, each operation precisely defined. WASP® sets a new frame of reference, to drive, manage, understand and optimize the lab workflows.

CopanGroup

Maximum flexibility

40+ streaking patterns available, different and reusable inoculation loop sizes (1ul, 10ul, 30ul), dedicated loops for dual streaking. All features are LIS driven for automatic selection and change of streaking patterns and adequate loop.

CopanGroup

Safety first

HEPA filtration system together with anti-drop technical solutions are WASP® key features to minimize contamination and cross-contamination risks.

Scalable Technology

Enhance your workflow management by integrating modules to automatize Broth Inoculations and Microscope Slide preparation.

Copan Group

WASP® module

Broth Inoculation

Takes care of the inoculation of enrichment broths or other transport systems, to address the need for parallel tests starting from a single sample.

Copan Group

WASP® module

Slide Prep EVO

Takes care of microscope slide smearing and fixation. It also boasts a sophisticated laser system for anti-solvent label printing.

Automating the gold-standard method

Disk diffusion is the only Antibiotic Susceptibility Testing that provides a true image of bacterial growth, enabling microbiologists to detect culture purity, heterogeneous growth or colony morphology, as well as antibiotic interactions, to adapt antimicrobial treatment more rapidly.​ With Radian®, you can have your cake and eat it too. Automation gets rid of the disadvantages linked to manual Disk Diffusion while maintaining at the same time its original advantages.

Copan

Cut the incubation time to 4 hours!

A fast time to result is crucial in the treatment of critical patients. Integrating EUCAST Rapid AST Rules (R-AST) into the automated workflow, Radian® BC is the first platform to provide accurate therapy indications for Blood Stream Infection patients with just a 4-hours incubation.
