Title (EN) APPARATUS AND METHODS FOR PERFORMING STEPS OF A MULTI-STEP PROCESS IN PARALLEL
(FR) APPAREIL ET PROCEDES POUR EFFECTUER EN PARALLELE LES ETAPES D'UN PROCESSUS A PLUSIEURS ETAPES
Abstract:
(EN) Embodiments of the present invention feature a device (1) and method for performing steps of a multi-step process in parallel. The device (1) and method feature a rotor assembly (13) having vessel stations (33) and stator assembly (15) having work positions. The rotor assembly (13) rotates the vessels (17) to the work stations to perform steps of a multi-step process at the same time.
(FR) La présente invention porte sur un dispositif et sur un procédé permettant d'effectuer en parallèle les étapes d'un processus à plusieurs étapes. Le dispositif et le procédé de cette invention mettent en oeuvre un ensemble rotor pourvu de stations à réceptacles et un ensemble stator pourvu de positions de travail. L'ensemble rotor fait tourner les réceptacles par rapport aux stations de travail afin d'effectuer en même temps les étapes d'un processus à plusieurs étapes.
