  • Publication number: 20050042138
    Abstract: A sample analyzer allowing miniaturization and sufficiently prompt analysis is obtained. This sample analyzer comprises a dispensing part rendered movable above a sample container set part, a reagent container set part and a detection part for sucking a sample and a reagent from the sample container and the reagent container respectively while discharging the sucked sample and the sucked reagent into the detection container. The detection part is arranged oppositely to the sample container set part and the reagent container set part.

  • Patent number: 5642938
    Abstract: A mixing apparatus, which can prevent possibility of mixing nonuniformity and contamination, employs a small and simple mechanism, and is advantageous with respect to costs. A vessel is gripped and held from the right and left sides by a hand member. The hand member horizontally rotatable by an urging power of a coil spring at the bottom of a support member. A vibration motor comprises a DC coreless motor body and an eccentric weight, the weight being eccentrically mounted to a motor shaft of the motor body. The rotation of the weight allows the motor body to eccentrically rotate, whereby the support member conically revolves and vibrates. The weight has a semicircular cross section. The support member is connected to a mobile member for moving the support member through a resilient member to allow the conical revolution of the support member.
