Title (EN) MICROFLUIDIC DEVICE AND APPARATUS
(FR) DISPOSITIF MICROFLUIDIQUE ET APPAREILS
Abstract:
(EN) A microfluidic test apparatus is disclosed, comprising a microfluidic device having a first reservoir for receiving a first fluid containing a sample of cells, a microfluidic test region, a first microfluidic pathway provided between the microfluidic test region and the first reservoir; and a port for connection to a pump. The apparatus includes a first pump connected to the port and configured to pump a priming fluid into the port, a second pump connected to the port and configured to apply suction at the port when operated and a controller configured to control operation of the first and second pumps, wherein the controller operates the first pump to prime the microfluidic device and operates the second pump to draw a test volume from the first reservoir into the microfluidic test region.
(FR) L'invention concerne un appareil d'essai microfluidique, comprenant un dispositif microfluidique ayant un premier réservoir pour recevoir un premier fluide contenant un échantillon de cellules, une région d'essai microfluidique, un premier chemin microfluidique disposé entre la région d'essai microfluidique et le premier réservoir; et un orifice destiné à être connecté à une pompe. L'appareil comprend une première pompe reliée à l'orifice et configurée pour pomper un fluide d'amorçage dans l'orifice, une seconde pompe reliée à l'orifice et configurée pour appliquer une aspiration au niveau de l'orifice lorsqu'elle est actionnée et un dispositif de commande configuré pour commander le fonctionnement des première et seconde pompes. Le dispositif de commande actionne la première pompe pour amorcer le dispositif microfluidique et fait fonctionner la seconde pompe pour aspirer un volume d'essai du premier réservoir dans la région d'essai microfluidique.
