Title (EN) CARTRIDGE FOR AUTOMATED MEDICAL DIAGNOSTICS
(FR) CARTOUCHE POUR DIAGNOSTIC MEDICAL AUTOMATIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) The present invention relates to a cartridge for the detection of the presence, absence and/or amount of a target nucleotide sequence in a sample comprising one or more nucleic acid sequences. The cartridge comprises a first component and a second component being connectable to each other, the first component comprising at least a first fluid opening and a first sealing surface and the second component comprising at least a second fluid opening and a second sealing surface. Upon connection of the first and second component the first and second fluid opening are placeable in fluid communication and the first and second sealing surfaces are placeable against each other to seal the fluid communication between the first and second fluid opening. The invention is characterized in that the cartridge comprises biasing means for biasing the second sealing surface in the direction of the first sealing surface.
(FR) L'invention concerne une cartouche permettant de détecter la présence, l'absence et/ou un taux d'une séquence nucléotidique cible dans un échantillon constitué d'une ou plusieurs séquences d'acide nucléique. La cartouche comprend un premier composant et un second composant pouvant être connectés l'un à l'autre, le premier composant comprenant au moins une première ouverture pour fluide et une première surface d'étanchéité et le second composant comprenant au moins une seconde ouverture pour fluide et une seconde surface d'étanchéité. Lorsque le premier et le second composants sont connectés l'un à l'autre, la première et la seconde ouvertures pour fluide peuvent être mises en communication fluidique et la première et la seconde surfaces d'étanchéité peuvent être placées l'une contre l'autre afin de sceller la communication fluidique entre la première et la seconde ouvertures fluidiques. L'invention est caractérisée en ce que la cartouche comprend un moyen de sollicitation servant à solliciter la seconde surface d'étanchéité dans la direction de la première surface d'étanchéité.
