Title (EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR DISPENSE CHARACTERIZATION
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ DE CARACTÉRISATION DE DISTRIBUTION
Abstract:
(EN) A system and method for dispense characterization is disclosed. According to particular embodiments of the dispense characterization system and method, volumes of dispensed liquids can be determined. In more particular embodiments, additional characteristics and combinations of characteristics of a liquid dispensing event can be determined. Examples of additional characteristics that can be determined include the shape of the dispensing event, the velocity of the dispensing event, and the trajectory of the dispensing event. The dispense characterization system and method can be employed in automated biological sample analysis systems, and are particularly suited for monitoring liquid reagent dispensing events that deliver liquid reagents to a surface of a microscope slide holding a biological sample.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un système et un procédé de caractérisation de distribution. Selon des modes de réalisation particuliers du système et du procédé de caractérisation de distribution, des volumes de liquides distribués peuvent être déterminés. Dans des modes de réalisation plus particuliers, des caractéristiques additionnelles et des combinaisons de caractéristiques d'un événement de distribution de liquide peuvent être déterminées. Des exemples de caractéristiques additionnelles qui peuvent être déterminées comprennent la forme de l'événement de distribution, la vitesse de l'événement de distribution et la trajectoire de l'événement de distribution. Le système et le procédé de caractérisation de distribution peuvent être utilisés dans des systèmes d'analyse d'échantillon biologique automatisés, et sont particulièrement adaptés pour surveiller des événements de distribution de réactif liquide qui distribuent des réactifs liquides sur une surface d'une lame de microscope sur laquelle se trouve un échantillon biologique.
