Title (EN) DEVICE AND ANALYZING SYSTEM FOR CONDUCTING AGGLUTINATION ASSAYS
(FR) DISPOSITIF ET SYSTÈME D'ANALYSE POUR RÉALISER DES DOSAGES D'AGGLUTINATION
Abstract:
(EN) A device (1) for conducting an agglutination assay comprising several reaction vessels (3), each reaction vessel (3) comprising an upper chamber (9) having an opening (15) for accepting reactants and/or a sample and a lower chamber (10), disposed to receive fluids from the upper chamber (9) and containing a matrix for separating agglutinates; characterized in that the device (1) also comprises a rotating support (2), able to rotate around an axis (A) and holding pivotally the reaction vessels (3) in a way to allow the reaction vessels (3) to pivot about an axis essentially perpendicular to the rotation axis (A) of the support (2) when the latter is rotated.
(FR) La présente invention porte sur un dispositif (1) servant à réaliser un dosage d'agglutination, comprenant plusieurs récipients de réaction (3), chaque récipient de réaction (3) comprenant une chambre supérieure (9) pourvue d'un orifice (15) servant à accepter les réactifs et/ou un échantillon et une chambre inférieure (10) disposée de façon à recevoir les fluides provenant de la chambre supérieure (9) et contenant une matrice pour séparer les agglutinats. L'invention est caractérisée en ce que le dispositif (1) comprend également un support rotatif (2) capable de tourner autour d'un axe (A) et servant à maintenir pivotants les récipients de réaction (3) de manière à permettre auxdits récipients de réaction (3) de pivoter autour d'un axe essentiellement perpendiculaire à l'axe de rotation (A) du support (2) lorsque ledit support est mis en rotation.
