Copan UniVerse™ automatically aliquoting

Flexible and open solution for molecular testing sample preparation

Rollover Image to Zoom

UniVerse™ is a high-throughput automation system that automatically aliquots samples received in the laboratory prior to molecular diagnostic testing. The automation of this pre-analytical step consolidates, integrates, and standardises the subsequent molecular analysis. Compatible with any molecular platform, UniVerse™ manages multiple liquid protocols, boosting a laboratory’s productivity to 130 tubes per hour or 220 x 96-well plate samples per hour. 

At UniVerse™’s core are three independent robotic arms that manage containers, de-capping, re-capping, pipetting and aliquoting from primary tubes to secondary tubes or deep well plates. Also integrated within the module are an automatic and customisable vortexing protocol, a barcode scanner, and a secondary tube or plate labelling system. All these operations are performed whilst ensuring maximum operator safety due to the laminar BLS2 flow hood. UniVerse™ operates in four different modes:

  •  Tube to tube
  •  Tube to plate
  • Pooling samples from different tubes to one secondary tube
  • Pooling samples from different tubes to one plate well

UniVerse™ can take care of a wide variety of assay preparations including: respiratory, gastrointestinal, hospital-acquired infections, SARS-CoV-2, HPV, and STI screening.

UniVerse is a registered trademark owned by  Copan.
