Automation of preparation for the analytical phase
COPAN Colibrì™ system replaces the manual work of the laboratory technician for all plates handled by the automated workflow (WASP®/WASPLab®). Colibrì™ system automatizes the preparation phase of the diagnostic activities maintaining a level of flexibility that allows the device to generate outputs compatible with other laboratory instruments. The operator selects the colonies and the activities to be performed, Colibrì™ receives this information and elaborates the sequence of mechanical actions that need to be reproduced in order to prepare the output in a format that can be introduced in the diagnostic devices own by the Microbiology Laboratory. Colibrì™ covers the preparation of targets for mass spectrometer identification, the preparation of plates and microbial suspension for Antimicrobial Susceptibility Test (AST), and the preparation of subculture plates/purity plates. The instrument transfers the specimen information to other devices allowing traceability of the sample ID process.

eNat® Specimen Collection and Preservation Optimized for Molecular Applications
eNat® is intended for collection, transport and preservation of clinical specimens to be processed with molecular diagnostic platforms. eNat® Guanidine thyocianate based medium stabilizes RNA and DNA of Viruses, Bacteria, Chlamydia, Trichomonas vaginalis and Mycoplasma and allows safe specimen handling thanks to its microbial viability inactivation. As the primary purpose of nucleic acids amplification techniques is to screen for a wide range of infectious diseases, nucleic acids integrity of clinical specimens during transport and storage should be preserved. eNat® medium contains a detergent and a protein denaturant that prevents microbial proliferation and ensures optimal preservation of RNA and DNA at room temperature up to 4 weeks and up to 6 months at -20°C.
With a rightful reputation for innovation, COPAN is the world leading manufacturer of collection and transport systems. In like manner, COPANs collaborative approach to pre-analytics has resulted in the development of FLOQSwabs®, ESwab®, UTM® and modular laboratory automation, WASP® and WASPLab®.
