Clinical Automation


A.I. core for full automation

PhenoMATRIX® in its three versions, is AI-powered software that combines image analysis, demographics, and clinical data to automatically interpret cultures to segregate Negatives and organize Positives into custom folders, automatically tag the most suitable colonies for picking ready to be processed in Colibrí™, and finally automatically release the results.

Automation is the key

Automated processes are the Lab’s turning point to reach new heights of flexibility, quality, process management and optimization, and of course prestige.

Copan will take you by hand, wipe out all uncertainties, and guide you through this breakthrough change!

What really matters in the spotlight

Powered by high-resolution digital imaging of WASPLab®, PhenoMATRIX® Artificial Intelligence algorithms analyze colony growth, morphology, color, and hemolysis to automatically segregate negative plates and organize positive ones into meaningful folders for you. PhenoMATRIX® TAG will go a step further, tagging the most suitable colonies to match your expected protocols and workups. PhenoMATRIX® PLUS… just lets you forget about all of these! It automatically releases the culture results to L.I.S. and applies the correct follow-up.

Focus on what
really matters

Discard all negatives with a click and dedicate your time to what matters: interpretation of positive plates!

Think integrated

Colibrí™ and PhenoMATRIX® TAG combined

Colibrí™ is the combination of breakthrough robotic precision, calibration technologies and digital imaging.
This matches perfectly with PhenoMATRIX® TAG which analyses the digital plate, automatically marks significant colonies for picking, and tells Colibrí™ how to act.


Out of sight, out of mind


PhenoMATRIX® PLUS is the newest PhenoMATRIX® suite release, designed to send the results to the LIS and automatically segregate positive plates or discard negative plates without technical validation. This will drastically decrease the time spent on negative plates and speed up the time to result for patients.


You can’t lose

What makes this software unique is the combination between your own know-how and unparalleled digital solution.


Drastically reduce hands-on Time

Shrink the time you usually waste for negatives plates, and dedicate the positives all the care they deserve, and still reduce a lot of the overall hands-on time!


Never touch a negative plate again

With a simple command, you can validate all presumptive Negatives results: WASPLab® will take care of moving plates from the incubator directly to the trash.



Forget about manual interpretation variabilities by harmonising your hard-gained best practices through fixed and custom rules into one software.


Empower your staff

Deliver a top-notch service to your patients by letting your staff express their full potential, focusing on what really matters.


Be efficient: sleep tight

Make the best use of your night shift through WASPLab® standardized incubation times! Start the day with a batch of already sorted plates to deliver the diagnosis earlier in the day!

How it works

Copan Group


Advanced Image Analysis

Analyzing the plate is the first task of PhenoMATRIX®. Its advanced digital image analysis algorithms break down the plate’s key features, for a flawless microbiological interpretation. 

Copan Group

Lis Integration

From Data to Knowledge

Two-way crosstalk between the system and the lab LIS ensures that every relevant clinical data is included in the analysis, supporting the microbiologist to make efficient and patient-oriented decisions.

Applied Artificial Intelligence

The Brain’s Logic

PhenoMATRIX® finally combines and analyses data from AI algorithms and LIS, applying your lab’s own rules for a flexible and tailored workflow.

Tag it with PhenoMATRIX® TAG
pick it with Colibrí™

Understanding the grown colonies coordinates and morphology, PhenoMATRIX® TAG automatically detects the most appropriate assigning the proper workup for each colony, according to your interpretation rules.
PhenoMATRIX® TAG consequently communicates to Colibrí™ the specific tasks to be performed. Insert the plate stacker into it and enjoy the show.
