Microbiology Automation

Copan WASP® Walk Away Specimen Processor*
Bring comprehensive, customizable automated specimen processing solutions to your laboratory to optimize pre-analytical productivity

  • Plants and streaks liquid-based specimens to culture media
  • Fully automates Gram stain slide preparation and enrichment broth inoculation, exclusive to WASP
  • Supports classical streaking methods to automate existing protocols without the need for re-training
  • Verifies sample and transfer to plates for improved quality
  • Adapts to changing needs through add-on modules


Copan WASPLab™ System**
Expand microbiology automation for specimen processing through robotic plate management and digital reporting.

  • Automates plate incubation, moving inoculated specimen plates from WASP to robotic incubators
  • Captures high-definition plate images for differential analysis
  • Facilitates image review and allows operator to retrieve plates for additional workup


MicroScan® WalkAway® plus Systems
Complement any size lab and test volume with standardized and reliable automated results while maximizing efficiency.

  • Simplifies maintenance through lever-activated reagent caps that are easy to lock
  • Processes Conventional and Specialty Panels - direct, non ID-dependant MICs, help you zero in on emerging resistance
  • Processes Rapid and Specialty ID panels for reduced turnaround when speed matters
  • Enables direct de-ionized water hook-up providing additional savings

Microbiology IT

LabPro Information Manager

Using an intuitive, customizable user interface, data is streamlined and organized from MicroScan® instruments, enabling faster workflow and delivery of test results. LabPro:

  • Allows labs to adapt work processes to specific lab requirements using customizable alerts, rules, and analysis
  • Enables detailed data analysis and reporting by exporting data to spreadsheets, graphing software, and databases
  • Allows accurate reporting through user-defined alerts that direct laboratory staff to take immediate corrective action
  • Records actions taken to resolve atypical results, simplifying auditing and enhancing Quality Control (QC)

LabPro Connect
Take information access to a higher level—not only making the information available when and where it’s needed, but also doing so in a manner that is easy on you and your staff.

  • Offers most functions available at the convenience of your LIS (LAN) workstation
  • Provides access to any LabPro system within the LabPro Network
  • Consolidates epidemiology for customers with more than one LabPro system
  • Allows one LIS connection for LabPro network configurations 


LabPro-MBT* (LabPro Bruker MALDI Biotyper® Connectivity Software)
Our new interface software seamlessly integrates MALDI Biotyper processing with MicroScan® panel results to simplify mass spectrometry ID workflow.

  • Combines MALDI Biotyper IDs with MicroScan® AST in LabPro, applying LabPro AlertEX Rules and interpretations to results
  • Performs MALDI Biotyper Target assignment in LabPro with electronic transfer to MALDI Biotyper
  • Allows for one LIS connection for MicroScan® and MALDI Biotyper systems
  • No additional middleware or computer required


*Under development. Not available for sale.


Molecular Diagnostics

Tissue Preparation Solution
Implement a more efficient and reproducible process to meet the challenges you face in the extraction of nucleic acids from Formalin-Fixed Paraffin Embedded (FFPE) tissue.

  • Fully automates the de-parafination process
  • Produces reliable and consistent success rates for RNA and DNA yields
  • Co-purifies RNA and DNA from a single FFPE sample
  • Eliminates hazardous chemicals for enhanced safety


VERSANT kPCR Sample Prep*

The VERSANT® kPCR Sample Prep allows you to consolidate your nucleic acid extractions on one bench-top platform. Our fully automated universal extraction technology isolates and purifies both DNA and RNA from diverse clinical samples using a single set of reagents, reducing your inventory and maximizing lab efficiency.

  • Provides quality isolations using proprietary extraction technology
  • Increased lab efficiency and productivity with an automated platform for increased walk-away time
  • Enhanced versatility supporting a variety of sample types and molecular applications
  • Delivers confidence in results
