Systems and methods of sample processing and temperature control
WO 2004059287 A3
Abstract
Systems and methods of sample processing and temperature control are disclosed. Specifically, the present invention provides temperature control in relation to sample processing systems and methods of processing samples. Some embodiments provides temperature control for sample carriers and processing materials, such as reagents. Corresponding systems and devices are disclosed, including sample processing systems (1) (Fig. 10), sample carrier temperature regulation systems, reagent temperature regulation systems, sample processing control systems, and temperature regulation devices. The present invention in particular applicability to the fields of immunohistochemistry, in-situ hybridization, fluorescent in-situ hybridization, special staining, such as special staining of histological samples, microarray sample processing, and cytology, as well as other chemical and biological applications.
