Title (EN) DEVICE AND RELATED METHOD FOR DELIVERING SMALL VOLUMES OF LIQUID
(FR) DISPOSITIF ET PROCEDE CORRESPONDANT DE DISTRIBUTION DE PETITS VOLUMES DE LIQUIDE
Abstract:
(EN) A device (100) and related method simultaneously for delivering liquid from a plurality of liquid delivery members (114) includes a housing (102, 104, 106) configured to contain the plurality of liquid delivery members (114) containing a liquid and configured to contain a receiving member (118) in a receiving position to receive the liquid from the plurality of liquid delivery members (114). The housing (102, 104, 106) defines a first pressure chamber (108) and a second pressure chamber (110). The first pressure chamber (108) is capable of being separated by the liquid relative to the second pressure chamber (110). The device (100) also includes a differential pressure generator (126, 127, 129) operably connected to one of the first (108) and second (110) pressure chambers. The generator (126, 127, 129) is capable of generating a pressure differential between the first (108) and second (110) pressure chambers to cause the plurality of liquid delivery members (114) to deliver liquid onto the receiving member (118).
(FR) L'invention concerne un dispositif (100) et un procédé correspondant destinés à distribuer du liquide à partir d'une pluralité d'éléments de distribution de liquide (114), ledit dispositif comprenant un logement (102, 104, 106) conçu pour contenir la pluralité desdits éléments (114) renfermant un liquide et conçus pour comporter un élément de réception (118) qui dans une position de réception est destiné à recevoir le liquide provenant de la pluralité d'éléments de distribution de liquide (114). Le logement (102, 104, 106) définit des première (108) et seconde (110) chambre de pression. La première chambre de pression (108) peut être séparée par le liquide par rapport à la seconde chambre de pression (110). Le dispositif (100) comprend également un générateur de pression différentielle (126, 127, 129) relié de manière fonctionnelle aux première (108) et seconde (110) chambres de pression. Le générateur (126, 127, 129) peut générer une pression différentielle entre les première (108) et seconde (110) chambres de pression pour que la pluralité d'éléments de distribution de liquide (114) distribue du liquide sur l'élément de réception (118).
