Title (EN) A DEVICE AND METHOD FOR HEATING OR COOLING A SAMPLE
(FR) DISPOSITIF ET PROCÉDÉ DE CHAUFFAGE/REFROIDISSEMENT D'ÉCHANTILLON
Abstract:
(EN) A sample heating/cooling device (2) comprises a plurality of members (6) operable in use to heat and/or cool one or more samples (22), Each member (6) has a sample contact surface and is biased towards a resting position under the operation of a biasing means. The members (6) are movable independently of one another against said bias under the application of a force on the sample contact surface and so are able to conform to the shape of a sample placed on the members to provide a uniform heating/cooling profile. The members (6) may be mounted in a heating/cooling element (4) and adapted to conduct thermal energy between the sample (22) and the element (4). The device (2) is particularly suitable for thawing frozen sample bags having an irregular shape. A corresponding method is also described.
(FR) L'invention concerne un dispositif de chauffage/refroidissement d'échantillon (2) comprenant une pluralité d'éléments (6) pouvant fonctionner pour chauffer et/ou refroidir un ou plusieurs échantillons (22). Chaque élément (6) présente une surface de contact avec l'échantillon et est sollicité vers une position de repos sous l'action d'un moyen de sollicitation. Les éléments (6) sont mobiles indépendamment les uns des autres contre ladite sollicitation sous l'application d'une force sur la surface de contact avec l'échantillon et de façon à pouvoir se conformer à la forme d'un échantillon placé sur les éléments pour fournir un profil de chauffage/refroidissement uniforme. Les éléments (6) peuvent être montés dans un élément de chauffage/refroidissement (4) et conçus pour conduire une énergie thermique entre l'échantillon (22) et l'élément (4). Le dispositif (2) est particulièrement approprié pour décongeler des sacs d'échantillons congelés de forme irrégulière. L'invention concerne également un procédé correspondant.
