Title (EN) SAMPLE COLLECTION AND MEASUREMENT IN A SINGLE CONTAINER BY BACK SCATTERING INTERFEROMETRY
(FR) COLLECTE ET MESURE D'ÉCHANTILLON DANS UN SIMPLE CONTENANT PAR INTERFÉROMÉTRIE À RÉTRODISPERSION
Abstract:
(EN) This invention provides a device and method for collection and analysis of heterogeneous samples in a single sample container by back scattering interferometry. The sample container is configured to allow collection of a heterogeneous sample, such as blood, from a subject, separation of insoluble materials, such as blood cells by, for example, centrifugation, and mounting on a back scattering interferometer for analysis. In certain embodiments the container is a capillary tube and the interferometer comprises a mounting to hold the capillary tube in position for analysis. The device and method allow point-of-care analysis of samples.
(FR) La présente invention porte sur un dispositif et procédé de collecte et d'analyse d'échantillons hétérogènes dans un simple contenant d'échantillon par interférométrie à rétrodispersion. Le contenant d'échantillon est configuré pour permettre la collecte d'un échantillon hétérogène, comme du sang, provenant d'un sujet, la séparation de matériaux insolubles, comme des globules, par exemple par centrifugation et le montage sur un interféromètre par rétrodispersion pour analyse. Dans certains modes de réalisation le contenant est un tube capillaire et l'interféromètre comprend un appareil de montage pour maintenir le tube capillaire en place pour analyse. Le dispositif et le procédé permettent l'analyse d'échantillons sur le lieu de soin.
