Title: PIPETTING DEVICE FOR AN APPARATUS FOR PROCESSING A SAMPLE OR REAGENT, APPARATUS FOR PROCESSING A SAMPLE OR REAGENT AND METHOD FOR PIPETTING A SAMPLE OR REAGENT
Abstract:
A pipetting device (100) for an apparatus (164) for processing a sample or reagent is disclosed. The pipetting device (100) comprises a coupling mechanism (102), wherein the coupling mechanism (102) comprises at least a first coupling unit (104) adapted to be coupled to a first pipetting tip and a second coupling unit (106) adapted to be coupled to a second pipetting tip, and a tilt mechanism (112) for moving the first coupling unit (104) between an untilted position, in which the first coupling unit (104) and the second coupling unit (106) are arranged parallel to one another, and a tilted position, in which the first coupling unit (104) is tilted relative to the second coupling unit (106). Further, an apparatus (164) for processing a sample or reagent and a method for pipetting a sample or reagent are disclosed.
