Description

The present invention is in the medical field of the analysis of tissue and cell samples. The invention relates more particularly to the orderly storage and storage of such samples.

As part of the medical management of a patient or in the context of research, human or animal or plant, tissue or cell samples can be made and sampled for histological and / or molecular analysis. For purposes of observation and conservation, these samples are arranged, usually in the center, on a support in the form of a rectangular blade of transparent material, plastic material but more often transparent glass, especially "glass White ". Such blades have standardized dimensions, generally 75 to 76 mm (millimeters) in length, for 25 to 26 mm in width, for a thickness of about 1 mm. These dimensions are particularly suitable for use in microscopic analysis.

A treatment can be applied to the sample thus disposed on such a blade, such as for example a coloration, before being covered by a lamella, generally of square, rectangular or round shape. A protective adhesive material may also be added superiorly to bind the slide and cover slip, ensuring the time-keeping of the sample and allowing reading under the microscope. Finally, sample and patient data are applied to a lateral portion of the slide for classification and subsequent identification. These data can be directly affixed to the part of the blade having a portion provided for this purpose, or in the form of an adhesive label. The whole thus forms a sampled blade. The invention is limited solely to the conservation and orderly storage of such sampled blades. To this end, the invention relates to a storage and sequencing support sampled blades, and a specific device for identifying said blades contained within such a support.

For the purposes of the present invention, unless otherwise stated, the terms "blades" and "sampled blades" are equivalent.

Currently, once prepared, the sampled slides are stored and manipulated manually, by operators who have not necessarily received specific training, without any control. As a result, this precarious manual management leads to errors and a considerable loss of time, possibly leading to the detrimental loss of certain blades.

Specifically, for storage, the sampled blades are stacked in numerical alpha order in stacks of up to several hundred. Said stacks are then placed in a storage, such as a box or a drawer. Once stored, it is difficult to find a particular blade within its stack, since its identification information is hidden by the other stacked blades, except possibly the blade on top of the stack. each stack.

In a related manner, the manipulations of the stacked blades often generate a scrape that may damage the sample.

As it stands, there is a real problem related to the orderly storage of the sampled blades in order to ensure classification and management enabling the location of one or more of said blades to be found quickly and simply in a secure manner.

An existing solution is described through WO 2010/004331, consisting of a device provided with drawers in which are positioned vertically sampled blades identified. In other words, the drawer extends in a horizontal or substantially horizontal plane while the blades are arranged orthogonally with respect to such a horizontal plane.

More specifically, each drawer is provided with housings in the form of slots regularly spaced along its length, inside which are slid from above said blades, having an identification tag in the upper part. In addition, each drawer is slidably mounted through an opening relative to a support frame equipped with upper means of identification of said blades. These means of identification consist of a RFID type radio reader (for "Radio Frequency Identification") for remotely reading the information contained within chips in the form of adhesive labels affixed to each blade.

Thus, at each closure of the drawer, the information contained in the respective labels of the blades contained therein are read by the reader, which makes it possible to identify each of said blades.

A major problem, related to the use of RFID technology, results in the field of emission of the reader, which even located, sends radio waves likely to enter into communication with the chips of several blades positioned adjacent to the breast. from the same drawer. In addition, the speed of translation of the drawer, operated manually, affects the quality of reading performed by the reader. In addition, if a slot is empty, the reader is not able to detect the absence of blade and only the next will be identified, without being able to accurately determine its location within the drawer. Finally, in the absence of knowledge of the exact position of a desired blade, the vertical arrangement of several blades adjacent, with less space between them, does not allow an operator to find visually in a simple and fast way said desired blade thus stored, the label of the blade located at the front hiding that of the blade behind.

An alternative solution is therefore to position the blades horizontally in housings formed in a tray support. The housings form rectangular parallelepiped-shaped hollows and dimensions complementary to those of said blades, in order to receive insertion from above. The blades are therefore positioned flat in the open upper face of such a plate, arranged next to each other in columns and rows. This arrangement makes it possible to recognize, visually or automated, easily their identification data then turned upward, without viewing the data of a blade is obstructed by an adjacent blade.

However, such a horizontal arrangement of the blades results in an increased storage space, with regard to a stack or a vertical arrangement within a drawer. Indeed, a flat arrangement juxtaposed blades causes a storage area equivalent to the sum of the area of said blades. The more the number of blades stored on a tray is increased, the more its size increases, to obtain dimensions making it difficult to handle or storable. In order to store a large number of blades, it is necessary to separate the blades into groups on several trays, the dimensions of which are smaller. However, it is then necessary to perform an identification of each tray to find a desired blade.

In addition, a horizontal arrangement of the blades on such a plate, positioning them flat in the open housing superiorly, causes precarious maintenance. This plate being intended to be moved and manipulated, the blades can be maintained within their housing only at their respective lateral and / or longitudinal edges. This results in an obvious defect of this maintenance, resulting in a risk that the blades out of their housing in case of inclination of said tray, especially if it turns around or overthrow due to the inadvertence of the person handling it.

The object of the present invention is to overcome the disadvantages of the state of the art by providing a solution for the conservation and orderly storage of sampled slides. In particular, the invention aims to store said blades so that they can be identified with certainty, by registering their position within a referencing system to find them quickly and simply when they are searched.

In addition, such a storage is designed to optimize the number of stored blades in relation to the size obtained, while maintaining the visualization of the data that are affixed to each blade for their certain identification. The invention is limited to storing the blades at a tray-type support.

To do this, the invention envisages a specific arrangement of the blades, neither vertically nor horizontally, but in an inclined manner with respect to the plane containing the plate. In other words, the plate has housings in the form of slits inclined and specifically shaped to receive insertion blades. This inclination allows a partial superposition of said blades. In other words, the slots of the housings are dimensioned so that a portion of a first blade is covered by another adjacent blade, while another portion containing the identification data is not covered. In sum, the blades protrude from their housing, in a staggered manner, to cover a portion of the blades inserted in the housings underneath and to reveal the part of these blades containing the identification information. This partial overlap makes it possible to considerably reduce the surface area of the plate for the same number of blades stored; in return, its thickness is increased according to the angle of inclination of the slots, but to a lesser extent, given the minimal thickness of the blades relative to their length. The invention thus makes it possible to obtain a storage on a smaller surface of a larger number of blades, with respect to the surface occupied by a known disposition juxtaposed flat blades.

In addition, this partial recovery arrangement, leaving visible the data affixed to each blade, allows, on the one hand, a precise location and, on the other hand, an easy and infallible visual or automated recognition of each housing as well as each blade it contains.

Thus, the subject of the invention is a tray support for receiving sampling slides, comprising housings aligned longitudinally in at least one column and recessed within the thickness of said plate in a shape and dimensions complementary to said blades. each housing having a slot having a bottom and side walls, each slot being open at least partially at the opposite level to said bottom and provided blind, closed at one end forming a stop and open at the opposite end, each housing comprising guide means arranged protruding at each of the side walls and extending from the open end to the closed end.

Such a plate is characterized in that the longitudinal axis of the slots is provided inclined at an angle with respect to the plane of said plate while the length of each slot is less than the length of a blade.

According to additional, non-limiting features, the angle of inclination of the longitudinal axis of the slots is between 5 ° and 45 °.

More precisely, this angle of inclination can be between 8 ° and 25 °.

In addition, the guide means may be in the form of at least two redents, each being arranged projecting from the surface of each side wall.

In addition, the guide means may be constituted by at least a portion of the bottom of the housing.

In addition, the housings can extend longitudinally and receive the blades by sliding the edges of their longitudinal edges within the guide means.

In this context, the invention envisages the detection of the presence of a blade within each housing and, if a presence is detected, the error-free identification of the blade in question and its exact position within a such tray. Therefore, the invention provides a device for identifying the blades contained within a tray support according to the invention.

Such a device comprises an envelope enclosing means designed to detect the presence of a blade within each housing of said tray and to identify a detected blade, by reading the identification data affixed to the front portion of each blade, said envelope being provided with an opening dimensioned complementarily to the dimensions of said plate and opening onto a cavity comprising means for receiving said plate. This device is characterized in that said cavity extends relative to said envelope along a longitudinal axis inclined at an angle β relative to a horizontal plane.

In addition, in a nonlimiting manner, like the plate inclined housing, the angle of inclination of the longitudinal axis of said cavity may be between 5 ° and 90 °.

More precisely, this angle of inclination can be between 5 ° and 45 °.

According to a limiting embodiment, this angle of inclination can be 8 °. The inclination of the longitudinal axis of the receiving cavity of the tray support according to the invention allows, once again, a saving of space and an optimization of the encumbrance. Other characteristics and advantages of the invention will emerge from the following detailed description of non-limiting embodiments of the invention, with reference to the appended figures in which: FIG. 1 schematically represents a perspective view of three- quarter front of a tray support according to a preferred embodiment of the invention, showing the distribution of housing for receiving the sampled blades; - Figure 2 shows schematically a partial view of Figure 1, according to another angle of view, showing the details of the housing configuration according to this embodiment; - Figure 3 shows schematically a partial view in a vertical section taken along a column of visible housing in Figure 2, showing in particular the configuration of inclined slots of said housing without a blade; - Figure 4 shows schematically a view similar to Figure 3, with blades inserted into the slots of each visible housing; FIG. 5 schematically represents a perspective view of an identification device according to a specific embodiment, said device being specifically designed to receive a tray support according to the invention; and FIG. 6 schematically represents a perspective view similar to FIG. 5, in which a tray support according to the invention is introduced in order to identify the blades that said plate supports.

The present invention relates to the storage and ordering of sampled slides 1.

As mentioned above, said blades 1 are in rectangular parallelepiped shape. As a reminder, such blades have standardized dimensions, 75 to 76 mm in length, for 25 to 26 mm wide, for a thickness of about 1 mm.

They are made of transparent material, especially glass. They receive on a portion of a face 2, in particular the upper face receiving the biological sample, identification information 3, in particular by affixing an adhesive label. Thus, part of the surface of each blade 1 is occupied by said portion of its face 2. This face portion 2 may extend over about a quarter to a third of the length of each blade 1.

Note that said information 3 can be handwritten but are most often in the form of encoded data, including barcode type or matrix code. Such information 3 makes it possible to uniquely identify each blade 1, in particular by assigning it a unique number, linking it in a related computer system, such as a database, to other data, in particular relating to the patient on whom The invention relates to a support in the form of a plate 4. As shown in Figure 1, such a plate 4 has a rectangular parallelepiped shape. It extends in a plane containing said plate 4, including a plane extending along the underside. It comprises housings 5 longitudinally aligned in at least one column, preferably longitudinally along columns and laterally in rows. According to the preferential mode, not limiting, as shown in Figure 1, said plate 4 comprises ten columns and twenty rows. Each housing 5 is intended to receive an insertion blade 1.

To do this, each housing 5 is formed recessed within the thickness of said plate 4. Each housing 5 is shaped and dimensioned complementarily to the shape and dimensions of a blade 1, with the clearance to ensure the introduction and extraction of said blade 1 within and from said housing 5. In sum, each housing 5 has a hollow shape generally parallelepiped rectangle, namely approximately a hollow block.

More specifically, each housing 5 comprises a slot 10 provided with a bottom 50 and side walls 51. Each slot 10 is open at least partially at the level opposite said bottom 50, namely in the upper part. Each slot 10 is also provided blind, closed at one end 52 and open at the opposite end 53.

According to the preferred embodiment shown in Figures 3 and 4, the closed end 52 is made obliquely, namely in the form of a song forming a slope. According to another embodiment, not shown, said closed end 52 may be arranged orthogonally with respect to said bottom 50, namely that its edge is straight. Therefore, in insertion, the blade 1 introduced by the open opposite end 53 abuts against the closed end 52, namely against its inclined or straight edge.

Advantageously, in order to facilitate insertion and extraction of the blade 1, the housings 5 comprise guide means 6 protruding at the levels of each of the lateral walls 51. These guide means 6 extend from the end open to the closed end 52. They allow to guide in a translational movement each blade 1, introduced or extracted in the slot 10 of a housing 5 by sliding or sliding.

According to the preferred embodiment, shown in the figures, the guide means 6 are in the form of at least two projections 60, each being arranged projecting from the surface of each side wall 51. In particular, this projection may extend 1 to 3 mm inwardly of a slot 10 of a housing 5. Each redent 60 may be continuous or discontinuous relative to its side wall 51. According to the continuous mode shown in the figures, each redent 60 forms a guide rail of the blade 1, also ensuring its maintenance. Indeed, each reduction 60 of a slot 10 of a housing 500 is made spaced from the corresponding redent 60 of another slot 10 of another adjacent housing 501, according to an equivalent distance, the clearance, to the thickness of a blade 1. The latter is therefore locked orthogonally, at the levels of its edges intended to slide, between and along the redents 60, can only move in sliding direction of insertion and d extraction, parallel to said redents 60.

According to the preferred embodiment, as can be seen in FIG. 3, the guiding means 6 may also consist of a portion of the bottom 50 of a slot 10. Consequently, the upper surface of each redent 60 comes out of the continuity of said bottom 50, allowing the blade 1 to slide continuously along each redent 60 and the bottom 50. More specifically, the upper face of the redent 60 of a slot 10 of a first housing 500 comes flush with the bottom 50 of a slot 10 of another adjacent housing 501. Thus, as shown in Figure 4, each redent 60 receives in the lower part the upper face of a first blade 100 inserted within a first housing 500, while the upper part of such a redent 60 receives the underside of another blade 101 introduced into the housing 501 adjacent.

Note that the configuration described above is logically different for the housing 5 located at the ends of the plate 4, in particular at each longitudinal end. Indeed, as shown in Figure 1 and Figure 6, the first housing 5, located on the right in these figures, is not covered by the slot 10 of another housing 5 or 6 guide means, since he is at the edge. Similarly for the last housing, located on the left, does not cover the slot 10 of another housing 5.

According to the preferred embodiment, shown in the figures, the housings 5 extend longitudinally and receive in their slot 10 the blades 1 by sliding the edges of their longitudinal edges (the longest) within the guide means 6. D Other configurations not shown can be envisioned, such as transversely extending housings receiving slides 1 by sliding along their lateral end edges.

In addition, in order to allow the insertion and extraction of the blades 1 in the housing 5, the longitudinal axis X of the slots is provided inclined at an angle with respect to the plane of said plate 4. Firstly such inclination is provided at a minimum angle a allowing and facilitating the gripping, manual or automatic, of the end of the blade 1 located at the open opposite end 53. On the other hand, this angular inclination makes it possible to allow partial recovery of two blades 100 and 101 inserted in adjacent housing 500 and 501. As such, an essential feature of the present invention lies in this partial overlap of two adjacent blades 100 and 101. This overlap takes place over part of the length of each blade 1, leaving at least one part of the portion of the face 2 having the identification data 3. In other words, as can be seen in FIG. a portion of a first blade 100 is slid into a housing 500 and is found under the blade 101 inserted into an adjacent housing 501. On the blade 100, there is then only the portion of face 2 with the data 3 which exceeds. According to another embodiment, only the portion of the face portion 2 with the matrix code is not covered.

This partial overlap configuration is obtained by the inclination of the slots 10 that comprise the housings 5, combined with the fact that each slot 10 has a length less than that of a blade 1, creating an offset and allowing a portion of the latter to protrude out of his home 5.

In addition, as mentioned above, part of an adjacent housing 501 is constituted by its bottom 50 and the surface of the redents 60 of a first housing 500. This configuration makes it possible to ensure the support of each blade 1 inserted in its housing. slot 10, on either side of its lower and upper faces, for a sufficient distance. For example, this sufficient distance may represent one third to three quarters of each blade 1.

In other words, the length of the guide means 6, namely the length of the teeth 60, is determined so that the stroke of a blade 1 inserted within a housing 5 is limited so that at least its the portion of said face portion 2 corresponds at least to the area occupied by the identification data 3. 52 forming a stop.

Thus, it is indeed the inclination combined with the reduced length of each slot 10, with respect to the total length of a blade 1, which makes it possible to position the blades 1 in partial overlap, producing a shift leaving the portion of face 2 where the identification data is located 3.

Advantageously, the inclination of the slots 10 forming the housings 5 has a minimum angle of 5 ° and a maximum angle of 45 °, relative to the plane of the plate 4. Beyond 45 ° of inclination, said plate 4 would have a substantial height and would rather be a drawer.

Preferably, the angle a is between 8 ° and 28 °. This choice makes it possible to optimize, on the one hand, the number of housings 5 for a given length of plate 4, but also to ensure a sufficient inclination, while maintaining a reasonable thickness of said plate 4.

Note that the inclination is determined relative to the plane containing said plate 4, namely the plane coinciding with its lower face, or its upper face. Therefore, this inclination is independent of the orientation of the plate 4 itself, which can be horizontal, vertical or angled.

Advantageously, the inclined and partially overlapping configuration of the blades 1, maintained transversely by the guide means 6 at their edges by the notches 60 while allowing only the displacement sliding within the slots 10, gives said blades 1 a increased maintenance, even in case of reversal or reversal of said plate 4, with the exception of a reversal in the direction of sliding within the slots 10 in the direction of extraction, thus considerably limiting the risks. The invention also relates to a device 7 for identifying blades 1 contained within a tray support 4 according to the invention, as previously described.

Such a device 7 consists of an envelope 70 enclosing means designed to detect the presence of a blade 1 within each housing 5 and to identify a blade present, namely detected. This identification takes place through the reading of the identification data 3 affixed to the face portion 2 of each blade 1 and apparent because of the partial recovery conferred by the specific configuration of the plate 4 according to the invention.

In addition, the casing 70 has a through opening 71, dimensioned complementarily to the dimensions of said plate 4, through which it can be introduced and extracted within and from a cavity 72 formed in said device 7.

Advantageously, as visible in the preferred embodiment shown in FIGS. 5 and 6, the opening 71 and the cavity 72 extend longitudinally, namely along the longest edge of said device 7. In addition, the cavity 72 is inclined with respect to a horizontal plane containing the device 1. In particular, the longitudinal axis Y of the cavity 72 extends obliquely at an angle β with respect to the plane extending along the lower surface of the device 7, in particular without limitation the horizontal plane on which it is intended to be placed. Like the plate 4, this inclination makes it possible to optimize the dimensions of the device 7, limiting its bulk, in particular its length; in return, the device 7 then has a greater height. This optimization makes it easier to position said device 7 on furniture of limited width.

Relatedly, the inclination of the plate 4 within the device 7 improves the detection and reading by the means provided for this purpose, in position the blades 1 inserted according to the degree of inclination of the slots 10 of the plate 4 added to the inclination of the opening 71.

According to a preferred embodiment, the angle of inclination β of the longitudinal axis Y of the cavity 72 is at least 5 ° and at most 90 °. Preferably, this angle of inclination β is between 5 ° and 45 °. This angle β of inclination can be determined at 8 °.

Note that the choice of angles within the plate 4 as the device 7 is not arbitrary, but performed in order to optimize their respective size.
