(FR) APPAREIL DE TEINTURE AUTOMATIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) An apparatus for processing a specimen carried on a slide includes a reel assembly and a dispensing mechanism. The reel assembly is adapted to move a strip with a plurality of fluid dispensing packets. The dispensing mechanism moves each of the packets into physical contact with the specimen to apply a fluid to the specimen. The apparatus is capable of using different strips to perform different types of protocols.
(FR) L'invention porte sur un appareil destiné au traitement d'un échantillon disposé sur une lame, lequel appareil comprend un ensemble bobine et un mécanisme de distribution. L'ensemble bobine est apte à déplacer une bande comprenant une pluralité de paquets de distribution de fluide. Le mécanisme de distribution amène chacun des paquets à venir en contact physique avec l'échantillon pour appliquer un fluide sur l'échantillon. L'appareil est capable d'utiliser différentes bandes pour conduire différents types de protocoles.
