Title (EN) VALVE CONTROL SYSTEM FOR A ROTATING MULTIPLEX FLUORESCENCE DETECTION DEVICE
(FR) SYSTÈME DE COMMANDE DE VALVE POUR DISPOSITIF DE DÉTECTION DE FLUORESCENCE MULTIPLEXE ROTATIF
Abstract:
(EN) Techniques are described for the detection of multiple target species in real-time PCR (polymerase chain reaction). For example, a system comprises a data acquisition device and a detection device coupled to the data acquisition device. The detection device includes a rotating disk having a plurality of process chambers having a plurality of species that emit fluorescent light at different wavelengths. The device further includes a plurality of removable optical modules that are optically configured to excite the species and capture fluorescent light emitted by the species at different wavelengths. A fiber optic bundle coupled to the plurality of removable optical modules conveys the fluorescent light from the optical modules to a single detector. In addition, the device may control the flow of fluid in the disk by locating and selectively opening valves separating chambers by heating the valves with a laser.
(FR) L’invention concerne des techniques pour la détection de types cibles multiples par amplification en chaîne par polymérase en temps réel. Par exemple, un système comprend un dispositif d’acquisition de données et un dispositif de détection couplé au dispositif d’acquisition de données. Le dispositif de détection inclut un disque rotatif ayant une pluralité de chambres de traitement ayant une pluralité de types qui émettent une lumière fluorescente à différentes longueurs d’onde. Le dispositif inclut également une pluralité de modules optiques amovibles qui sont configurés optiquement pour exciter le type et capturer la lumière fluorescente émise par les types à différentes longueurs d’onde. Un faisceau de fibres optiques couplé à la pluralité de modules optiques amovibles achemine la lumière fluorescente depuis les modules optiques vers un simple détecteur. En outre, le dispositif peut contrôler l’écoulement de fluide dans le disque en repérant et ouvrant de manière sélective des valves séparant les chambres en chauffant les valves avec un laser.
