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.
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.
Express your lab’s full potential by automating your routine
FecalSwab™ is intended to collect fecal specimens and preserve enteric pathogenic bacteria’s viability to be processed using standard clinical laboratory operating procedures for culture.
UriSponge™ is intended for the collection, transport and preservation of urine specimens for the cultivation of uropathogenic bacteria and yeasts.
A successful forensic investigation begins with a proper sample, and proper samples are obtained using the appropriate collection method.

Medlab Middle East
In 2021 Medlab Middle East will be located with Arab Health. This combination will accelerate innovation and strengthen the capability to provide more relevant solutions, bringing two key communities – healthcare and medical laboratory – together under one roof.
The European Society of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases meeting is one of the most influential congresses in the field of microbiology. ECCMID scientific program is a synthesis of current priorities in clinical microbiology and infection: diagnosis, treatment, epidemiology, and prevention of infectious diseases, as well as related basic microbiology.
Asia Pacific Congress of Clinical Microbiology and Infection – APCCMI
APCCMI 2021 will build on this rich history in Singapore and regional collaboration. The congress will focus on:
- Advances in infection control, microbiome and vaccines; new antimicrobials and antimicrobial stewardship.
- Advances in microbiology including rapid diagnostics, applications in whole-genome sequencing, laboratory automation;
- Antimicrobial resistance in humans and within the One Health context of animals, humans and the environment;
- Challenges and progress in the three pandemic infections of HIV, Malaria, and Tuberculosis;
- Emerging infectious diseases prevalent in the region (Chikungunya, Dengue, Zika) and globally (Avian and seasonal influenza, MERS-CoV)
The virtual edition returns
More time. More valuable contacts. More return.
In a changing world and with limited resources we realise it’s more important than ever to spend your time and money wisely. So, they’ve completely reviewed and redefined the Medlab Asia & Asia Health experience, introducing an online platform.
BIOMED-J 2023 has taken up the ingredients of the success of previous congresses, by improving the recipe with more partners, conferences, and high-quality speakers. The agenda will cover many topics, including microbiology and virology. See you there with our full portfolio of Liquid-Based Media!
33rd ECCMID – European Congress of Clinical Microbiology & Infectious Diseases
Here we are, another year, another ECCMID incoming! Despite last year’s incredible event, we are planning even more exciting things for ECCMID 2023, and we can’t wait to share them with you in Copenhagen! This year, two will be the Copan’s integrated lunch symposia, save the dates:
- April 16th, 12.15 -13.15 “Sample collection: needs, challenges, and future”
- April 17th, 12.15 -13.15 “BacteriologIA: Artificial Intelligence applied to bacteriology”
For the moment, visit our ECCMID landing page (under construction) for information about our scientific symposia, poster presentations, and product launches for this year.
The 41st Annual Meeting of the European Society of Paediatric Infectious Diseases is the world’s premier meeting for professionals who want to stay up to date, apply state-of-the art science to clinical care, present their research, reinforce existing and develop new collaborations.
The event will bring together world-renowned researchers and clinicians for an inspiring multi-faceted program covering areas that include clinical issues, epidemiology, public health, microbiology, immunology, host-pathogen interactions, and genomics, highlighting more recent progresses. Come to our booth to discover our solution for sample collection in kids and newborns.
Asia Pacific Congress of Clinical Microbiology and Infection – APCCMI
The primary goal of the APCCMI international conference is to broaden medical knowledge while strengthening personal and professional networks. This year, the meeting will return to the in-person format, bringing clinical microbiologists, infectious disease physicians, infection control professionals, and public health scientists from Asia Pacific countries together to share their expertise, remarkable achievements, and innovative ideas through active intellectual collaboration. The scientific program will reflect the changing landscape of clinical microbiology and infection through the pandemic of COVID-19 and AMR.
