Title (EN) ROBOTIC MICROSCOPE
(FR) MICROSCOPE ROBOTIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) A robotic microscope is provided for automation of microscopic analysis and testing. It consists of a specimen handling subsystem (M, N, O, P) for handling a sample of specimen to be analyzed, an imaging subsystem (F, G, I, K, L) for obtaining a magnified electronic image of specimen sample, and a control subsystem (A, B, C, D) for displaying the magnified electronic image of the specimen sample, wherein the operation of all three subsystems is controlled by a computer.
(FR) Microscope robotique permettant l'automatisation d'analyses et de tests microscopiques. Il se compose d'un sous-système de manipulation d'échantillons (M, N, O, P) destiné à manipuler un échantillon prélevé à analyser, un sous-système d'imagerie (F, G, I, K, L) permettant d'obtenir une image électronique grossie de l'échantillon prélevé, ainsi qu'un sous-système de commande (A, B, C, D) destiné à afficher l'image électronique grossie de l'échantillon prélevé, le fonctionnement des trois sous-systèmes étant piloté par ordinateur.
