Title (EN) METHODS, KITS AND SYSTEMS FOR PROCESSING SAMPLES
(FR) PROCÉDÉS, TROUSSES ET SYSTÈMES DE TRAITEMENT D'ÉCHANTILLONS
Abstract:
(EN) A method for isolating microorganisms from a sample, the sample including sample matrix and microorganisms, the method including the steps of providing a receptacle, the receptacle configured to allow filtering of the sample and to reversibly contain the sample and a concentration agent; adding the sample to the receptacle, wherein a microorganism-bound composition will be formed in the receptacle, the microorganism-bound composition including concentration agent-bound microorganisms and sample matrix; and filtering the microorganism-bound composition through a filter to collect the concentration agent-bound microorganisms on the filter, wherein the filter has an average pore size that is greater than the average size of the microorganisms. Kits and systems are also disclosed herein.
(FR) L'invention porte sur un procédé d'isolement de microorganismes à partir d'un échantillon, l'échantillon comprenant une matrice d'échantillon et des microorganismes, le procédé comprenant les étapes consistant à se procurer un récipient, le récipient étant configuré pour permettre la filtration de l'échantillon et pour contenir de manière réversible l'échantillon et un agent de concentration ; ajouter l'échantillon au récipient, où une composition liée aux microorganismes sera formée dans le récipient, la composition liée aux microorganismes comprenant des microorganismes liés à l'agent de concentration et une matrice d'échantillon ; et filtrer la composition liée aux microorganismes à travers un filtre pour recueillir les microorganismes liés à l'agent de concentration sur le filtre, le filtre ayant une dimension moyenne de pore qui est supérieure à la dimension moyenne des microorganismes. L'invention porte également sur des trousses et des systèmes.
