Title (EN) ROBOTIC PIPETTE SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTÈME DE PIPETTES ROBOTIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) A robotic pipette system is used to process specimen-bearing microscope slides. The system includes a filling station, carousels, and a transport apparatus that loads pipettes filled at the filling station into the carousels. The carousels position the pipettes above the specimen-bearing slides such that fluids dispensed from the pipettes are applied to the specimens. Each carousel can hold a series of pipettes that are used to perform a multi-step process.
(FR) L'invention porte sur un système de pipettes robotique qui est utilisé pour traiter des lames de microscope porte-échantillons. Le système comprend un poste de remplissage, des carrousels et un appareil de transport qui charge dans les carrousels les pipettes remplies au poste de remplissage. Les carrousels positionnent les pipettes au-dessus des lames porte-échantillons de telle sorte que des fluides distribués à partir des pipettes sont appliqués sur les échantillons. Chaque carrousel peut porter une série de pipettes qui sont utilisées pour réaliser un traitement en plusieurs étapes.
