Title (EN) PLANAR REGISTRATION OF MULTI-WELL PLATE FROM WELL SIDE
(FR) ENREGISTREMENT PLANAIRE D’UNE PLAQUE MULTI-PUITS A PARTIR DU COTE PUITS
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A multi-well plate such as a microtiter plate is secured from its well side in a manner that corrects or compensates for any deviations of the plate base from a planar configuration. This is achieved by an apparatus that includes an array of posts with exposed tips that define a plane, a plurality of movable collets that, when appropriately actuated, seize the walls of selected wells, and a biasing means to urge the collets in a direction that forces the wells of the microtiter plate against the exposed tips of the posts.
(FR)L’invention concerne une plaque multi-puits de type microplaque qui est fixée par le côté puits de sorte à corriger ou compenser une quelconque déviation d’une configuration planaire de la base de la plaque. Cet objectif est atteint à l’aide d’un appareil qui inclut un réseau de pointes avec des extrémités exposées qui définissent un plan, une pluralité de collettes dans une direction qui force les puits de la microplaque contre les extrémités exposées des pointes.
