eSwab® collection and transport system is our multipurpose media intended for the collection and transport of clinical specimens containing aerobes, anaerobes, fastidious bacteria, viruses and Chlamydia.
eNAT® is intended to collect, transport, and preserve microbial and human nucleic acids to be analyzed by amplification techniques. With its rapid analysis and inactivation features, eNAT® is the ready-to-use device to quickly homogenize your sample, for a high-quality, unbiased nucleic acid yield, and fast turnaround time.
Simplifying collection devices and ensuring a prolonged sample transport could promote self-collection expansion in many new medical fields.
CLASSIQSwabs™ are traditional and sterile ready-for-use devices intended for the collection of clinical samples.

International Papillomavirus Conference – IPVC
The theme of the 34th International Papillomavirus Conference is “Research and education for HPV elimination”. Through workshops, invited lectures, and oral and poster sessions presenting the latest research results, the conference will cover papillomavirus-related topics from basic science to clinical research and global health impact. Special attention will be paid to HPV prevention and control in populations that are most vulnerable to HPV, including those in Low- and Middle-Income Countries.
EUROGIN 2022 – International multidisciplinary HPV congress
We urgently need to recover from the losses in cervical cancer screening and treatment and HPV vaccination rates that we witnessed during the COVID-19 pandemic; EUROGIN is the opportunity to meet in person to share ideas on the ambitious goal of eliminating cervical cancer. At the booth, you’ll have the chance to discover our solutions for HPV screening and our approach to self-collection as a method to increase testing rates in women.
GISCi – Convegno Gruppo Italiano Screening del Cervicocarcinoma
Il Gruppo Italiano Screening del Cervicocarcinoma è una associazione senza scopi di lucro che promuove la diffusione e miglioramento della qualità nell’attività di screening organizzato del carcinoma della cervice uterina. Il Convegno nazionale sarà un’occasione di confronto per quanti coinvolti nei programmi di screening organizzato nel verificare i risultati raggiunti, i programmi di recupero dopo il rallentamento dell’attività legato alla pandemia COVID, il grado di implementazione nell’attuazione del Programma Nazionale di Prevenzione per quanto attiene, nello specifico, l’attività dell’Associazione.
Microbiology Time – October 2021
October’s update of our scientific database is full of exciting papers. Among them, we selected a study on HPV-related cancer screening, a research on direct amplification of disaster victim identification samples, and a comparison of sample collection and transport methods to enhance yield and biosafety of COVID-19 testing.
Microbiology Time – April 2022
April is dense with scientific events: EUROGIN, ECCMID, World Of Microbiome… our Microbiology Time could not be missing! The main topic of this month is HPV, the subject of two of your selected studies. The third one investigates SARS-CoV-2 presence on hospital surfaces.
Copan at ECCMID 2022
Our page dedicated to ECCMID 2022. Here, you can discover more about what we displayed at the trade show, watch – or replay- our integrated lunch symposium, and listen to our interviews with microbiology experts, to understand how Copan’s WISE approach can revolutionize your lab workflow!
Microbiology Time – June 2022
June’s microbiology time is finally online! We selected three interesting studies for this month’s issue: a paper published on BMC evaluating HPV testing using self-collected samples and two studies on two very different outbreaks, the first of measles in Italian non-vaccinated individuals and the second investigating an outbreak of CPE in a COVID-19 intensive care unit.
Sample self-collection, a lesson gained during the COVID pandemic
