Title: DEVICE FOR AUTOMATICALLY EXCHANGING CULTURE MEDIUM, AND CELL CULTURE DEVICE
Abstract:
The purpose of the present invention is to provide a device or the like for automatically exchanging culture medium, which can be implemented at low cost, and which facilitates the exchange of culture medium in a plurality of culture vessels for simultaneous culturing. This device for automatically exchanging the culture medium of cell cultures is provided with: tables (2) which have a plurality of cell culture vessels (1) disposed thereon in the circumferential direction; a multi-level structure including the plurality of tables; a rotation mechanism (5) for rotating the tables; position-holding jigs (3) which hold the culture vessels in position; a lid-opening mechanism (3B) for opening culture-vessel lids; a tilting mechanism which operates in conjunction with the lid-opening mechanism, and which tilts culture-vessel main bodies; a culture-medium extraction/injection pump (7); and a raising/lowering mechanism (9) which causes the lid-opening mechanism and the culture-medium extraction/injection pump to move up and down.
