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.
