Title
(EN) SAMPLE COLLECTION TUBES
(FR) TUBES DE COLLECTE D'ÉCHANTILLON
Abstract
(EN) A sample collection tube is disclosed for collecting a body fluid sample. The tube includes a closure arranged at an open end to close the open end and a partially evacuated inner space. The closure also includes a base portion connected to the sidewall and a cap portion coupled to the base portion, where the cap portion has an elastomeric material that is pierceable from outside of the tube for collecting a sample into the partially evacuated inner space and where the cap portion can be pivotable with respect to the sidewall such as to make the inner space accessible for withdrawing an aliquot of the sample. Alternatively, the cap portion can be separable from the base portion to make the inner space accessible and the base portion can include a self- resealable valve adapted to allow access of a pipetting unit into the inner space when the cap portion is separated and adapted to re-seal after withdrawal of the pipetting unit. Also disclosed is a work cell for handling sample collection tubes.
(FR) Tube de collecte d'échantillon permettant de collecter un échantillon de fluide corporel. Le tube comprend une fermeture agencée au niveau d'une extrémité ouverte pour fermer l'extrémité ouverte et un espace intérieur partiellement sous vide. La fermeture comprend également une partie de base reliée à la paroi latérale et une partie capuchon accouplée à la partie de base, la partie capuchon ayant un matériau élastomère qui peut être percé de l'extérieur du tube pour collecter un échantillon dans l'espace intérieur partiellement sous vide et la partie capuchon pouvant pivoter par rapport à la paroi latérale de façon à rendre l'espace intérieur accessible pour le prélèvement d'une aliquote de l'échantillon. Selon un autre mode de réalisation, la partie capuchon peut être séparable de la partie de base pour rendre l'espace intérieur accessible et la partie de base peut comprendre un clapet auto-refermable conçu à une unité de pipetage d'accéder à l'espace intérieur lorsque la partie capuchon est séparée et conçu pour se refermer après le retrait de l'unité de pipetage. L'invention concerne également une cellule de travail pour la manipulation de tubes de collecte d'échantillon.
