(54) Title (EN): FILTRATION DEVICE WITH REMOVABLE PROTECTIVE MEMBER
(54) Title (FR): DISPOSITIF DE FILTRATION AVEC ÉLÉMENT DE PROTECTION AMOVIBLE

(57) Abstract:
(EN): A cell filtration assembly adapted to capture cells from a biological sample during centrifugation includes a filter support member including a sample well and a filter membrane that spans the sample well. In some cases, the filter support member and/or the filter membrane may be adapted to be sectioned. In some cases, a protective element may be disposed over at least a portion of the filter support member in order to protect the filter support member from tissue processing reagents during processing of the cells captured from the biological sample.
(FR): Un ensemble de filtration de cellules conçu pour capturer des cellules à partir d'un échantillon biologique pendant la centrifugation comprend un élément de support de filtre comprenant un puits d'échantillon et une membrane filtrante qui couvre le puits d'échantillon. Dans certains cas, l'élément de support de filtre et/ou la membrane filtrante peuvent être conçus pour être sectionnés. Dans certains cas, un élément de protection peut être disposé sur au moins une partie de l'élément de support de filtre afin de protéger l'élément de support de filtre des réactifs de traitement de tissu pendant le traitement des cellules capturées à partir de l'échantillon biologique.
