Title (EN) SAMPLE HANDLING SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTÈME DE MANIPULATION D'ÉCHANTILLON
Abstract:
(EN) Sample handling system for handling samples contained in tubes (4), each tube (4) having a hollow body, a closed bottom and an open top for accessing the sample contained in the tube (4). The system comprises a micro-plate (1) comprising at least one grid insert (2) having a plurality of compartments. Each compartment comprises one or more side walls laterally confining a through-hole for receiving a said tube (4). The through-hole has a top opening and a bottom opening and extends between the top opening and the bottom opening. A frame (3) to which the at least one separate grid insert (2) is to be attached to form the micro-plate (1). The frame (3) laterally confines a through-opening which is dimensioned to allow for accessing each compartment (21) of the attached at least one grid insert (2) from above and from below. This allows for moving such tube (4) into and out of each compartment (21) through each of the top opening (202) and the bottom opening (203) of the through-hole (201).
(FR) L'invention concerne un système de manipulation d'échantillons permettant de manipuler des échantillons contenus dans des tubes (4), chaque tube (4) comprenant un corps creux, un fond fermé et une extrémité supérieure ouverte pour accéder à l'échantillon contenu dans le tube (4). Le système comprend une microplaque (1) comprenant au moins un insert de grille (2) comprenant une pluralité de compartiments. Chaque compartiment comprend une ou plusieurs parois latérales confinant latéralement un trou de passage pour recevoir ledit tube (4). Le trou de passage comprend une ouverture supérieure et une ouverture inférieure et s'étend entre l'ouverture supérieure et l'ouverture inférieure. Le système comprend un cadre (3) auquel le ou les inserts de grilles (2) séparés doivent être fixés pour former la microplaque (1). Le cadre (3) confine latéralement une ouverture de passage dont les dimensions permettent l'accès à chaque compartiment (21) du ou des inserts de grille (2) attachés depuis le dessus et le dessous. Ceci permet de déplacer ce tube (4) dans et hors de chaque compartiment (21) par chacune des ouvertures supérieure (202) et inférieure (203) du trou de passage (201).
