In this section you can view a selection of products that hundreds and thousands people use everyday for the sample collection and preservation in viral and bacterial infections which are among the leading causes of disease. From the latest generation of traditional bacteriology transport swabs to Liquid Based Microbiology™ (LBM®), a concept developed by COPAN with the advent of FLOQSwabs® in 2003 and of eSwabs® in 2005, transforming previously challenging samples such as swabs, feces and sputum into liquid samples. The LBM® line brings specimens into liquid format in ready to use standard size plastic containers, optimal for automation in Microbiology. This standardization in Microbiology helps to streamline specimen processing, allowing busy laboratories the ability to automate up front processing and offer expanded testing capabilities.
