Abstract
(EN)
The present invention provides systems and methods for analysis of samples, particularly biological and environmental sample to detect biomolecules of interest contained therein. A variety of system components are described herein, including, but not limited to, components for sample handling, mixing of materials, sample processing, transfer of materials, and analysis of materials. The invention further provides mechanisms for combining and integrating the different components and for housing, moving, and storing system components or the system as a whole. The systems may include any one or more or all of these components. The system finds particular use when employed for analysis of nucleic acid molecule using mass spectrometry, however, the invention is not limited such specific uses.

(FR)
La présente invention porte sur des systèmes et des procédés pour l'analyse d'échantillons, en particulier d'un échantillon biologique environnemental pour détecter des biomolécules d'intérêt qui sont contenues. Divers composants d'un système sont décrits dans la présente demande, comprenant, mais sans y être limités, des composants pour la manipulation d'échantillons, le mélange de matières, le traitement d'échantillons, le transfert de matières et l'analyse de matières. L'invention porte également sur des mécanismes de combinaison et d'intégration de différents composants et pour recevoir, déplacer et stocker des composants d'un système ou le système dans son ensemble. Les systèmes peuvent comprendre l'un quelconque ou plusieurs ou la totalité des ces composants. Le système trouve une utilisation particulière lorsqu'il est employé pour l'analyse d'une molécule d'acide nucléique à l'aide de la spectrométrie de masse; cependant, l'invention n'est pas limitée à de telles utilisations spécifiques.
