Title (EN) FLUID FLOW MODULE
(FR) MODULE D'ECOULEMENT DE FLUIDE
Abstract:
(EN) Microfluidic analyzers (2) are used to sense a plurality of analytes in whole blood, diluted blood, plasma or serum. Additionally in the rapidly growing fields of cell culture growth and fermentation, it is often necessary to measure glucose, glutamine, lactate, NH3, phosphate and iron in micro-scale fluid flow analysis systems. The present application is directed to a fluid flow module (2) that allows for analyte sample flow therethrough (23, 28) while providing a site for the location of a sensing element or elements therein to detect analyte presence and/or concentration. The module is designed for microfluidic flow rates and volumes and can be discarded after use with simple replacement by another module.
(FR) Les analyseurs (2) de micro-fluide sont utilisés pour la détection d'analytes dans du sang entier, du sang dilué, du plasma et du sérum. Par ailleurs, dans les domaines de la culture cellulaire et de la fermentation qui se développent rapidement, il est souvent nécessaire de mesurer le glucose, la glutamine, le lactate, du NH3, le phosphate et le fer au moyen de systèmes d'analyse d'écoulement de fluide de petite échelle. La présente invention concerne un module d'écoulement de fluide (2) permettant à un échantillon d'analyte de s'y écouler (23, 28) tout en présentant en son sein un site de pour y loger un élément ou des éléments de détection en vue de détecter la présence et/ou la concentration d'analytes. Le module est prévu pour des débits et des volumes de micro-fluide et est jetable après utilisation pour être simplement remplacé par un autre module.
