Title (EN) SAMPLE VESSELS
(FR) TUBES ECHANTILLONS
Abstract:
(EN) A sample vessel (10) may comprises a tubule (12) having an opening (14) for receiving a sample material and at least one compressible section (16), a generally rigid container (20) receiving at least a portion of the tubule; and an interface (30) in fluid communication with the opening (14) in the tubule (12). The at least one compressible section (16) may have a wall (18) constructed at least partially form a material having sufficient flexibility to permit compression of opposed sections of the wall (18) into contact. The interface (30) may facilitate delivery of a sample material to the tubule (12) through the opening (14). A sample vessel (10) may also comprise a tubule (12) having a plurality of lumens and a wall constructed at least partially from a material having sufficient flexibility to permit compression of opposed sections of the wall into contact with one another and a pressure gate connecting at least two lumens to permit selective fluid flow between the at least two lumens.
(FR) L'invention concerne un tube échantillon. Ce tube peut comprendre un tubule pourvu d'une ouverture pour recevoir un échantillon et au moins une section compressible, un récipient généralement rigide recevant au moins une partie du tubule et une interface en communication par le fluide avec l'ouverture ménagée dans le tubule. La section compressible peut présenter une paroi formée au moins partiellement à partir d'un matériau dont la flexibilité est suffisante pour permettre la compression des sections opposées de la paroi afin de les amener en contact l'une avec l'autre. L'interface peut faciliter la fourniture d'un matériau échantillon au tubule via l'ouverture. Un tube échantillon peut également comprendre un tubule présentant plusieurs lumières et une paroi formée au moins partiellement d'un matériau dont la flexibilité est suffisante pour assurer la compression des sections opposées de la paroi et les amener en contact l'une avec l'autre. Ce tube comporte également un clapet de refoulement reliant au moins deux lumières et permettant l'écoulement sélectif du fluide entre au moins ces deux lumières.
