Full Lab Automation & Artificial Intelligence

COPAN is committed to innovation in pre-analytics. The automation and Artificial Intelligence (AI) algorithms developed by COPAN combine the unparalleled human intelligence of the Microbiology community, with the invaluable asset of AI to help laboratories amplify their resources to provide faster actionable results to clinicians.

Microbiology Up Front Specimen Set Up

WASP®DT is a modular, open platform specimen processing solution that fully automates all facets of specimen set-up in Microbiology, including planting and streaking, Gram slide preparation, broth inoculation and ID disk application.

Full Laboratory Automation

WASPLab® is a highly efficient, modular, scalable and customizable specimen processing and culture work-up system for Clinical Microbiology. Samples move from front-end processing, to Smart Incubation, Digital Microbiology and Artificial Intelligence/Interpretive Algorithms for plate reading.

Microbiology Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Digital Microbiology

PhenoMATRIX® offers WASPLab® users advanced AI. The different algorithms pre-sort and pre-assess culture plates using different user-defined parameters. WASPLab® users can read, interpret and segregate bacterial cultures with the click of a button.

A Fully Automated Specimen Workup Instrument Designed to Prepare MALDI-TOF ID Targets and Create Bacterial Suspensions for Antibiotic Susceptibility Testing

The COPAN Colibrí™ System is an in vitro diagnostic device for use with the bioMérieux VITEK® MS or Bruker MALDI Biotyper® CA mass spectrometry systems for automating rapid identification of isolated colonies of Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria grown on solid culture media.

Bulk Specimen Sorting

Developed for laboratories with multiple WASP®DT systems or WASPLab® lines, bulk specimen loader WASP-FLO™ automatically sorts specimens using a barcode reader and directs each specimen to the appropriate WASP®DT processing instrument.

UniVerse® Fully Automated Instrument for Molecular Specimen Preparation

UniVerse® revolutionizes up front sample processing for molecular diagnostics automatically managing accessioning, labeling, vortexing, and aliquoting into assay tubes and 96-well plates. UniVerse® is fully LIS interfaced, it increases laboratory throughput with complete traceability, reliability and accuracy. It increases productivity while decreasing operational cost and allows valuable human resources to be re-deployed to higher level tasks.

Collaborative Station

The Collaborative Station offers an interactive and fully automatic option for various manual tasks in the microbiology laboratory.


Radian® is a fully integrated solution that automates the seeding of Mueller Hinton plates, application of antibiotic discs, robotic transfer of prepared plates to incubators, plate imaging, zone measurement, zone interpretation, and result output using the Halo Recognition Algorithms, part of the Radian® Expert System AI.

Our Promise

COPAN is committed to innovation in preanalytics. The automation developed by the COPAN team helps Microbiologists to provide faster and better results, and ultimately to make a difference and have a strong impact on patient care.
