Title (EN) ROBOT FOR ORCHESTRATING MICROFLUIDICS EXPERIMENTS
(FR) ROBOT POUR ORCHESTRER DES EXPÉRIENCES MICROFLUIDIQUES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A robot is described for automatically performing microfluidic experiments that are often complex and repetitive. The robot includes a system for initiating the communication of off-chip fluids, such as fluorocarbons, and off-chip materials, such as proteins. The communication of off-chip fluids and off-chip materials is further guided to a microfluidics device vis-a-vis a Z-head robot, an XY plane robot, and an interface assembly that creates a fluid-tight joint for communicating the off-chip fluids and off-chip materials into the microfluidics device for conduction of microfluidics experiments.
(FR)L'invention porte sur un robot pour effectuer automatiquement des expériences microfluidiques, qui sont souvent complexes et répétitives. Le robot comprend un système pour déclencher la communication de fluides détachés de fragment, tels que des fluorocarbures, et de matériaux détachés de fragment, tels que des protéines. La communication de fluides détachés de fragment et de matériaux détachés de fragment est en outre guidée vers un dispositif microfluidique vis-à-vis d'un robot à tête Z, d'un robot à plan XY, et d'un ensemble d'interface qui crée un joint étanche vis-à-vis des fluides pour communiquer les fluides détachés de fragment et les matériaux détachés de fragment dans le dispositif microfluidique pour la réalisation d'expériences microfluidiques.
