Title
(EN) SAMPLE PROCESSING DEVICES
(FR) DISPOSITIFS DE TRAITEMENT D'ECHANTILLONS
Abstract
(EN) Methods and devices for thermal processing of multiple samples at the same time are disclosed. The sample processing devices provide process arrays that include conduits useful in distributing sample materials to a group pf process chambers located in fluid communication with the main conduits. The sample processing devices may include one or more of the following features in various combinations: deformable seals, process chambers connected to the main conduit by feeder conduits exiting the main conduit at offset locations, U-shaped loading chambers, and a combination of melt bonded and adhesively bonded areas.
(FR) L'invention concerne des procédés et des dispositifs pour le traitement thermique simultané de plusieurs échantillons. Lesdits dispositifs comprennent des supports et des dispositifs de traitement d'échantillons accompagnés de matrices de traitement qui comportent des conduits utiles pour la distribution de matières d'échantillons à un groupe de chambres de traitement qui sont en communication fluidique avec les conduits principaux. Ces dispositifs de traitement d'échantillons peuvent présenter une ou plusieurs des caractéristiques suivantes combinées de plusieurs façons: des joints déformables, des chambres de traitement reliées au conduit principal par des conduits d'alimentation sortant du conduit principal à des endroits décalés, des chambres de chargement en forme de U et une combinaison de zones obtenues par voie fondue et assemblées par collage.
