LBM®

Copan Liquid Based Microbiology™ combines swabs with liquid transport and processing media, transforming challenging specimens into easy-to-process, multi-purpose liquid samples.

The story

The second step toward the preanalytics revolution

If the times of semi-solid agar-based sample transport systems are long gone, it’s thanks to the conception of Copan’s Liquid-Based Microbiology™. Pushed by the revolutionary FLOQSwabs®, Liquid-Based Microbiology is today the gold standard of microbiology specimen transport that transforms solid specimens into easy-to-process, automatable, and multi-purpose liquid samples. Since the marketing of eSwab® back in 2008, many liquid media have been added to the LBM® family, so that presently there are almost no clinical microbiology specimens that cannot be collected, transported, or processed in a liquid medium.
