WASPLab® is the natural evolution of the WASP® project and Copan philosophy and takes care of the incubation/imaging of the plates and brings the customer into the world of Digital Bacteriology. Before and during the incubation, the unique and patent pending WASPLab® vision system acquires images that will be available in digital high-quality format to the lab technician to perform the reading phase. Through the support of a user-friendly and fully customizable web based application the user can read and manage the plates without to physically take plates out of the incubator. Each operator can access this platform through a login, making available various functions for different type of login. The system architecture provides a full audit trail of all operations. The picking phase on the isolated colonies is managed by the operator thanks to a semi-automatic laser-assisted procedure that helps the operator in carrying out its activities and keeps track of all the data; this proprietary system is called C-Tracer®.
