WASP® provides a comprehensive system encompassing all aspects of automated specimen processing: planting and streaking, Gram slide preparation, enrichment broth inoculation, and preparation of AST plates.
More than a platform for incubation, storage, digitization, and recording of inoculated bacteriology plates, WASPLab® is the nucleus of Copan Full Lab Automation.
Respiratory tract infections are among the most common disorders affecting today’s population, representing the third cause of death in the whole world.
BC+™ is a vacuum tube designed to transfer and transport positive blood culture for culture or microscopic analysis.
With MycoTB™ you can take care of all the steps needed for mycobacteria detection in respiratory tract and extra-pulmonary specimens – fluidization, decontamination, concentration – with a safe, easy, and ready-to-use kit.
PhenoMATRIX® and PhenoMATRIX® TAG are AI-powered softwares that combine image analysis algorithms, demographic data and clinical data of patients to automatically segregate Negative plates, and organise Positives ones into custom folders.
