Title: (EN) SAMPLE VESSELS
(FR) TUBES ECHANTILLONS
Abstract:
(EN) A sample vessel (10) may comprises a tubule (12) having an opening (14) for receiving a sample material and at least one compressible section (16), a generally rigid container (20) receiving at least a portion of the tubule; and an interface (30) in fluid communication with the opening (14) in the tubule (12). The at least one compressible section (16) may have a wall (18) constructed at least partially form a material having sufficient flexibility to permit compression of opposed sections of the wall (18) into contact. The interface (30) may facilitate delivery of a sample material to the tubule (12) through the opening (14). A sample vessel (10) may also comprise a tubule (12) having a plurality of lumens and a wall constructed at least partially from a material having sufficient flexibility to permit compression of opposed sections of the wall into contact with one another and a pressure gate connecting at least two lumens to permit selective fluid flow between the at least two lumens.
