Title (EN) SAMPLE PREPARATION DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE PRÉPARATION D'ÉCHANTILLON
Abstract:
(EN) The present disclosure relates to a sample preparation device and a related method. The sample preparation device includes a sample preparation module having a holder configured to hold the sample container, and an actuator coupled to the holder. The actuator is configured to cause the holder to repeatedly change a position of the sample container a set number of times in order when the sample container is held by the holder. The sample preparation device also includes a staging module configured to hold the sample container for a set period of time. The staging module includes a rack that holds the sample container when the sample container is released from the holder. The set period of time is sufficient to allow the blood in the sample container to further clot.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un dispositif de préparation d'échantillon, et un procédé associé. Le dispositif de préparation d'échantillon comprend un module de préparation d'échantillon ayant un support configuré pour maintenir le récipient d'échantillon, et un actionneur couplé au support. L'actionneur est configuré pour amener le support à changer de manière répétée une position du récipient d'échantillon un nombre défini de fois dans l'ordre lorsque le récipient d'échantillon est maintenu par le support. Le dispositif de préparation d'échantillon comprend également un module de séparation configuré pour maintenir le récipient d'échantillon pendant une période de temps définie. Le module de séparation comprend une crémaillère qui maintient le récipient d'échantillon lorsque le récipient d'échantillon est libéré du support. La période de temps définie est suffisante pour permettre au sang dans le récipient d'échantillon de continuer à se coaguler.
