UniVerse® automates sample preparation steps for molecular testing: tube decapping and recapping, vortexing, swab handling, barcode identification, and liquid transfer to secondary tubes or assay plates.
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!
Universe has been designed to resolve the most pressing issues in an often overlooked step: Sample Preparation.
Between sample collection and analysis there is a lot to do. Let UniVerse® help you in taking care of everything needed in the safest way.
Like every automation we design, it has its full potential unlocked when combined with our collection and transport devices: superior quality is achieved through complete control over preanalytics.
With UniVerse™ you automate sample preparation for molecular testing: tube decapping and recapping, vortexing, swab handling, barcode identification, and liquid transfer to secondary tubes or assay plates.
No matter what downstream molecular biology platform you have. UniVerse® components are designed and customised to fit a variety of tubes and assay plates.
Handling 130 tubes/hour or 220 96-well plate samples/hour,
UniVerse™ integrates impeccably into your molecular biology lab’s workflow.
UniVerse® recognizes inbound samples
ID matching them with L.I.S. data.
Universe® can apply di erent vortexing protocols
based on the sample type.
Two independent robots for the simultaneous
decapping of primary or secondary tubes,
depending on the protocol.
The third arm is equipped with a pipettor,
aliquoting samples to tubes or assay plates.
The robotic arms recap both primary and secondary tubes and put them in place.
UniVerse® applies a custom label to output tubes,
and synchronizes with L.I.S. the ID matching.
In the last years, molecular biology laboratories faced a massive increment of sample volumes.
This overload challenged these labs to control many aspects of the sample workflow, like traceability cross-contamination and productivity fluctuations.
Easy access for continuous specimen loading and downloading without stopping the instrument.
Labelling, barcode printing, ID synchronization with L.I.S.: your samples are always in sight. Output IDs are also mapped on an intermediate le, especially useful for pooling protocols.
The Class II NSF/ANSI 49 laminar flow hood ensures the complete safety of your staff.
Universe® processes multiple specimen containers without manual removal of the swab. It handles capped and uncapped secondary tubes of different sizes, and comes with a customised assay plate holder, to fit your specific assay one.
UniVerse® has not one, not two, but four different operational modes:
Especially useful for pooling protocols is our intermediate file, where output IDs are mapped.
Thanks to its flexibility, you can prepare a variety of samples, from vaginal swabs to urine, from sputum to nasopharyngeal swabs, from individually collected to pooled nasopharyngeal swabs, and many others!
Now you can consolidate most of your daily workload. Copan primacy comes from a total sight over the entire preanalytical phase. Explore our collection and transport solutions, both SELF and not, and unlock the full potential of UniVerse®.
