Device for dna sample fragmentation

Dispositif de segmentation d'echantillons d'adn

Abstract

L'invention concerne un dispositif (1) de segmentation d'échantillons d'ADN (A) mis en solution dans un contenant (C), le dispositif (1) comportant : -une cuve (2) destinée à recevoir un liquide (L), la cuve (2) étant équipée d'un moyen de génération d'ondes ultrasonores (3) pour propager des ondes ultrasonores dans le liquide (L); et -un premier élément support (4) reposant sur la cuve (2), le dispositif (1) étant caractérisé en ce qu'il comporte en outre un deuxième élément support (5) comportant un orifice (50) traversant destiné à recevoir le contenant (C), le deuxième élément support (5) étant suspendu par au moins un élément de suspension (6) formant au moins une liaison rotule de sorte à permettre l'immersion d'une portion inférieure du contenant (C) dans le liquide (L).
The invention relates to a device (1) for the fragmentation of DNA samples (A) that are in solution in a container (C), said device (1) comprising: - a vessel (2) for receiving a liquid (L), the vessel (2) being provided with means for producing ultrasonic waves (3) so as to spread ultrasonic waves through the liquid (L); and - a first support element (4) resting on the vessel (2), the device (1) being characterized in that it further comprises a second support element (5) having a passage (50) designed to receive the container (C), the second support element (5) being suspended by at least one suspension element (6) forming at least one swivel joint, such that a lower portion of the container (C) can be immersed in the liquid (L).
