Title (EN) APPARATUS FOR GRIPPING MICROPLATES
(FR) APPAREIL DE PREHENSION DE MICROPLAQUES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An apparatus suitable for securely gripping and holding a microplate or other containers during robotic de-lidding operations. A microplate placed on the apparatus is held by a vacuum (30) drawn through the base (10) thereof allowing the lid (50) of the microplate to be removed without movement of the plate. Afterwards, the vacuum can be discontinued and the plate removed from the apparatus.
(FR)L'invention concerne un appareil approprié à la préhension et au maintien d'une microplaque ou autres contenants pendant des opérations robotisées d'enlèvement d'opercule. Une microplaque placée sur l'appareil est maintenue par un vide (30) réalisé à travers la base (10), ce qui permet d'enlever l'opercule (50) de la microplaque sans que la plaque soit déplacée. Puis, le vide peut être éliminé et la plaque enlevée de l'appareil.
