Abstract
(DE)
Die Erfindung betrifft eine Kryoeinrichtung zum Einfrieren und Auftauen einer Probe (1), insbesondere bei der Kryokonservierung einer biologischen Probe (1), mit einem kühlbaren Kühlraum (3) und einem in dem Kühlraum (3) angeordneten Probenbehälter (10) zur vorübergehenden Aufnahme der Probe (1) beim Einfrieren oder Auftauen der Probe (1). Es wird vorgeschlagen, dass der Probenbehälter (10) getrennt von dem Kühlraum (3) temperierbar ist. Weiterhin umfasst die Erfindung ein zugehöriges Betriebsverfahren.
(EN)
The invention relates to a cryo-device which is used to freeze and defrost a sample (1), in particular during the cryo-conservation of a biological sample (1), comprising a coolable cooling chamber (3) and a sample container (10) which is arranged in the cooling chamber (3) and which is used to provisionally receive the sample (1) during freezing or defrosting thereof (1). According to the invention, the sample container (10) can be tempered separately from the cooling chamber (3). The invention also relates to an associated operational method.
(FR)
Dispositif cryogénique pour congeler et décongeler un échantillon (1), en particulier lors de la cryoconservation d'un échantillon biologique (1), qui comporte une chambre de congélation (3) pouvant être refroidie et un récipient (10) pour échantillon situé dans la chambre de congélation (3) et destiné à recevoir provisoirement l'échantillon (1) en vue de la congélation ou de la décongélation dudit échantillon (1). Selon la présente invention, le récipient (10) pour échantillon peut être amené à la température adéquate séparément de la chambre de congélation (3). La présente invention concerne en outre un procédé permettant de faire fonctionner ledit dispositif.
