Copan Redefines Automated Specimen Processing with Groundbreaking New Features

In response to customers' requests, Copan developed the WASP in a modular way to accommodate future needs for automation. While attending ASM's general meeting, Copan successfully launched the Gram SlidePrep, which is a module designed to prepare a Gram slide after the sample has been inoculated onto culture plates by the WASP and to permanently inkjet directly onto the glass slide the patient's barcode and specimen descriptors. The inkjet labeling withstands all solvents and reagents used during processing, eliminating the need for a paper label.  Judy Reid, Regional Technical Specialist in Vancouver Coastal Health Authority's Microbiology Laboratory, the first laboratory to adopt the WASP in Canada, commented that "the gram stain module looks very exciting since now the WASP can also prepare and label the gram smears.  This will further reduce the manual workload and result in a more consistent gram stain and eliminate mislabeling of slides."  When asked about his reaction to the new Gram SlidePrep, Dr. Yoram Keness, Director of Clinical Microbiology Laboratory, at Ha-Emek Medical Center in Israel stated that "including a module for gram stain in the WASP's flowchart robotics is not less important than the streaking, since the bacteriological truth of a specimen lies in the gram stain results."
