  • Patent number: 9333505
    Abstract: Setting method for microplate washing devices has a receptacle for receiving a microplate and a washing head having washing cannulas. The cannulas are in an array corresponding to a well array with lowermost ends define a work plane. This work plane is parallel to a reference plane. In a first phase, the receptacle and/or washing head are moved together until the lowermost ends of the cannulas touch a surface defining the reference plane. A sensor device has a controller linked thereto and from the sensor device is registered using the controller and a relative altitude value is determined therewith, which indicates touching of the surface by the lowermost ends of the cannulas or for determining the position of this surface. Based on this, an active altitude of the lowermost ends of the washing cannulas in relation to an inner surface of the well bottoms of a microplate is determined.

  • Patent number: 8800365
    Abstract: Method for registering filling potential of a waste container of a microplate washing device has a needle for aspirating liquids, a waste container, a pump for generating a partial vacuum and a pressure sensor for determining air pressure in the container, a sensor controller, and a first valve for blocking the line between the needle and the waste container. The pump and needle are connected to the container and the method includes closing the first valve, generating a partial vacuum in a test range, closing a further valve between the container and the pump, opening the first valve, triggering a partial vacuum dissipation in the container, measuring a test time for the partial vacuum dissipation in the test range, comparing the test time to a known threshold time, and deciding that the waste container is fillable or not.

  • Publication number: 20100167406
    Abstract: Relates to a measuring apparatus (4) and corresponding methods carried out in e.g. hybridization systems for determining fluid parameters provided by a laboratory system (1). The measuring apparatus (4) comprises a measuring unit (5) and a processing unit (6) for determining the fluid parameters provided by the laboratory system (1) and the measuring unit (5) is accomplished to be able to be integrated into this laboratory system (1). The measuring apparatus (4) according to the invention is characterised in that the measuring unit (5) comprises a measuring block (15) without a reaction room (34) and at least one sensor (17). The measuring block (15) comprises hollow spaces (16) for receiving or guiding fluids (13) provided by the laboratory system (1). The at least one sensor (17) is arranged, for determining physical and/or chemical parameters of fluids (13) located in the hollow spaces (16), on or in fluidic operative connection with these hollow spaces (16) of the measuring block (15).

  • Patent number: 7618812
    Abstract: A device provides a hybridization chamber for hybridizing nucleic acid samples, proteins or tissue sections on a slide, and is an essentially rectangular body movable opposite the slide. The device includes a surface, lines for supplying and/or removing media, a specimen supply line and an agitating device. The agitation device includes at least one membrane which separates a pressure chamer to be fillable with a pressure fluid via one of the lines, from at least one agitation chamber connected via an agitation line to the hybridization chamber. The lines are continuously open so the media therein can permanently flow unhindered. Four such devices can be combined into a process unit for providing a hybridization chamber. Such unit is pivotable around an axis and has a holder with four seats, which is lockable in relation to a baseplate, one device being insertable into each one of the seats.

  • Patent number: 7615370
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a system (1) having hybridization chambers (5) for hybridizing nucleic acid samples, proteins, or tissue sections immobilized on slides (27), each hybridization chamber (5) being defined as an essentially gap-shaped chamber, which is essentially fillable with a liquid, between one of these slides (27) and a cover (26), and the cover (26) being positioned in relation to the slide (27) in such a way that the hybridization chamber (5) is sealed to the surrounding air, the system (1) including a device for preventing air bubbles in the hybridization chambers (5). The system according to the present invention is distinguished in that this device for preventing air bubbles in the hybridization chambers (5) is implemented as a pressure device to build up a chamber pressure in the hybridization chambers (5), this chamber pressure lying above the normal atmospheric pressure existing in the surrounding air.
