DWS announces that from September 2018 a new Gram Slide Preparation Module for WASPLab™ will be available. This radically new slide prep module involves an exciting update to the technology, which significantly cuts maintenance costs. It also provides massive savings on consumables as, for example, it does not now require ink jet cartridges but uses laser technology to engrave the slides.
Automating slide selection and preparation in this way saves a great deal of time and prevents user error. With this new module, Copan once again prove how they continue to advance automation for the modern laboratory.
The previous Slide Preparation Module will be available for purchase only until February 2019, when it will be discontinued.
WASPLab™ is a sophisticated, barcode-driven microbiology specimen processor and work-up system. WASPLab™ moves samples from front end processing to full specimen management, with automated incubation and remote plate image analysis.
With its modular design and small footprint, WASPLab™ can be customised to the unique needs of your laboratory. The robotic plate management system, smart incubators and state-of-the-art image acquisition technology are changing the way labs work and are opening the door for ground-breaking digital microbiology. WASPLab™ is a truly modular system and can be added to when sample throughput increases, when additional resources are available and when new developments provide additional automated solutions.
Don Whitley Scientific have installed and maintained WASP and WASPLab systems in the UK for several years, sites include Manchester, Leeds and Blackburn.
