Abstract

This invention relates to a novel structure of a stool sampling tube including a container for storing a preservation solution or a medium, a cap for sealing the opening of the container and a stool sampling member fixed to the cap. The stool sampling member has a thinly elongated rod-like or bag-like shape and the surface of the area near its tip is so coarse that the coarse surface is rubbed against an object for sampling. Since the tip of the stool sampling member is tapered, the sample can be smeared thinly and narrowly on the medium. When a smear is obtained by rotating the stool sampling member on its longitudinal axis for automatic smearing, the smear can be obtained without interruption. The quantity of the sample and the concentration of the smear on the medium can be optimized by attaching a sheath to the rod-like or bag-like member and a deposition quantity of the sample can be further optimized by providing means for smoothening the coarse surface of the stool sampling member. If the opening of the container is cut aslant with respect to the longitudinal axis of the container, the area of the opening of the container can be increased and the insertion of the sampled stool into the container can be made more easily. At the same time, the sample adherent to the cap can be recovered in the container and the size of the sampling tube can be reduced. An expanded portion is disposed on the outer side surface of the opening of the container or a sealing member made of a flexible material is disposed inside the cap and the shape of the sealing member has a tapered surface projecting downward with the longitudinal axis of the stool sampling member being the center. In this manner the sample adherent to the cap can be recovered into the sample container more easily and the quantity of the sample adherent to the sampling member can be increased.

Description

Akira fine

The name of the invention:

Feces collection tubes art suitable for mechanized process:

The present invention generally taken the desired amount of sample from the object to be Ken查 for microbial testing, transport and relates to collecting device to smear the medium, more particularly adopted flights tube for stool . BACKGROUND:

Conventionally, for stool, feces collection tube having a Kyabbu sealing and adopted flights body collecting Samburu from the test object, and the test tube-like container for storing it, the open portion of the container is known Till.

Conventional adoption flight body, also to fix the base end portion of the spoon-like member in the cap, swab typically Dearu overlaid with cotton tip of the rod-like member.

Te is Oi the stool for the purpose of microbial testing, important to take samples from the surface of Ken查 object Dearu. In addition, Nozomashii be taken the appropriate amount of sample. If the sample collection takes time until microbial inspection, and the collection location inspection and facilities if the Tir distant geographically encapsulates glycerin preservative solution or Kyariburea medium or the like in vitro, a sample immersion or by buried in storage solution or medium, drying the sample, curing, of microorganisms in the sample growth necessary to prevent death flashing Gaaru.

Samburu is use a Tobintai Ite usually is smeared to the medium surface of the petri dish. In the smear of sample, resulting isolated colonies on the medium, very thin, necessary to Nuri沬 dilute Dearu. Shikamo, two coats are not the Te A', also damage the surface of the medium Naranai.

Therefore, the operator will be coated 沬 after removing the excess Samburu against the coating 沬 from feces collection body, even Oi that case, rich in medium portion first be Se' the Tobintai the medium surface to be Nuri沬, smear concentration of dilute accordance adopted flights body moves. To facilitate this trend, generally a line to progressively accelerate the smear speed Ware Til. The coating 沬速 degree Nai if if there is no pretty fast. And smear incorrect Dearu, isolated colony can not be obtained, proper inspection line I obtained Nai. Therefore, smear work takes Juku繚.

The adopted flights body, spoon-shaped ones are frequently used Ori, to Yue of its shape, when Nai taken companions in experts to harvest, correctly sample is taken from the surface of the test object Nai it was very many. Example Eba, when taking Kikui samples at concave spool Ichin is extremely excessive amount of the sample is taken. If the excess of the sample was taken, prior to smearing, cloth excess sample, nonwoven, after taking wipe I in Webu such as paper, Tita performed smearing. When the inspection object is a liquid, the sample from the spoon I preservative solution or Kyariburea medium Nyo is dropped Araii, proper amount of Samburu could not be held on the spoon surface. Further, when the sample is extremely Kati does not Sanburuka sufficiently buried in the medium, thus drying the San Bull, curing, microbial growth, problems such as killing not only Aru, the feces collection surface it was not possible to deposit a sample of proper amount. Furthermore, smear work line in the convex surface of the spoon (rear) Uga, if that too make a spoon to thin smear, damage the surface of the medium, proper inspection becomes impossible.

Even when use Iru the swab as adoption flight body may Nai correctly the test object is taken from the surface of the inspection object often, if significantly Kati inspection object, to sample collection proper amount When it is difficult Deari, also to force the collected you, Re Hiroshi the cotton swab is subjected to Son傺 is Atta. Also when the smear, high swab cotton water retention, and for soft Rakai, thin, it is difficult to smear dilute Atta. Excess samples must be taken 拭I as above Atta.

Further, in either case, smear work if Without row Ware I worker Nyo skilled Nai is the You will be understood from the working aspect described above, uncomfortable for the examiner, moreover severe Ari in Do not work, and therefore difficult to secure workers commensurate with the amount of work Deari, also labor costs increased. In addition, the stench measures, problems such as the disposal of the © Department of spent adopted flights tube Oyo beauty Obitadashi I amount Atta. In addition, Les such needs in case the possibility of pathogens exist, such as legal infectious diseases in the test object is Aru, if not friendly to the infection of the problem to workers,.

Therefore, if smearing operation, excess of the sample removal without use Iru the Webu, if automated (mechanized), securing skilled operator, human rights cost problems fool Ride without bad smell measures, waste processing Oyobi health problems also can be easy to resolve, extremely useful Dearu. Therefore, the potential demand for adopting flight tube suitable for automated processing Atta.

However, without taking an excessive amount of Samburu when feces collection, moreover minimum necessary amount Yori It measures to be taken slightly excess amount of Samburu it was difficult and A', adhering excess sample detects whether Iru or not, if Moshiare, until the amount of the sample is in a suitable amount, wipe I take work machine line Waseru it is difficult Deari, also be A'at possible, therefore costly to the facility.

Further, Tobintai ♦ cap assembly and use state-like adoption flight tube described above with container Atta as follows.

Sample standing § To collect separates the cap from the container, a sample was taken from the surface of the stool cap secured to over body a spoon-shaped adoption flights of convex (rear), save Tobintai and 揷入 in the liquid or medium mounting the cap on the container. Adopted flights tube sample was sealed, is transported to the inspection authority.

Te is Oi to the inspection authority to desorb the cap from the container, to Nuri沬 the Samburu a fixed scan spoons shaped adopted flights body use Ite medium cap.

Te is Oi to such adoption flight tube, the geometry of the open portion of the container is small Saito, when 揷入 the Tobintai the container, it is erroneously attached to sample the open portion of the container danger Gaari, Samburu collection's, in the case Nai experts of inspection, is between the above-mentioned problem, Yori size Kunar. Further Increasing the geometry of the open section, increases the material per product, not only the production cost is high, transportation, storage scan pace increases, also increases further transport costs, also waste Demeri' Togaaru such as the amount of also increased.

In addition, or vibration feces collection tube during transport of adoption flights tube, or turned sideways, to or upside down. I Rukoto Niño, is Ko雜 water or leachate from the storage solution or medium sample is mixed adhering to the 抦部 Oyobi Kyabbu of adoption flights body, when Oyobi Nuri沬 when detaching the cap of flights adopted Te Oi to Ken查 institutions tube, or contaminate the hands of the inspector, to culture the ground虡 Re is Atta to or was dropped. This problem is solved I attentiveness I consideration Niño of skilled professionals. Over-commercialized S, et al., Skilled professionals of care and equal circumstances determine the machine in a row Waseru it is difficult Dearu. In addition, the manual method Nyoru coating also the time of millet, comfortably Nozomashii be a line Eru smear without the special consideration.

In view of the above problems, the applicant of the present invention, disadvantages when feces collection, transportation, disadvantages during storage were studied Oyobi smeared working flight adopted to overcome the drawback of mechanized pipe Ni'ite 銳意Yui杲, even if Oi to the manual method, has led to the development of the adoption flights tube that can be satisfactorily used in Oi to the mechanized method.

Tobintai 3 0 Till surface of an area proximate to the distal end portion is roughened. Surface moieties use Ira to smear the feces collection body need not Aru necessarily rough surface, as much as possible subdivision, Aru be dilute smear is small Sai curved line Eru You half Kai There Nozomashii.

The second diagram to d, Till showed some embodiments when Tobintai 3 0 consists only elongated I in rod-shaped body 3 1 real. Te is Oi in Figure 2, proximal portion of the rod-shaped to-3 1 is shown Ori is omitted, and the medium C of the tip portion and the petri dish S is Til. In the embodiment of Figure 2 a, the rod-shaped body 3 1 is a tapered round bar Ari, the total surface area 3 1 b adjacent to its distal end 3 1 a and the tip becomes an textured rough surface Iru. In this embodiment, smear work obtained line I is inclined to the vertical or Arayuru direction rod-like body to the surface of the medium C.

In the embodiment of Figure 2 b, inflated portion 3 1 b mosquitoes S close to the distal end portion 3 1 a of the rod body 3 1 Ori, is being a mesh-like rough surface to increase the surface area Tyl . Thus, the collected regardless hardness of Okeru inspection object when required can sample taken minimum limits, rod-shaped body 3 1 stock solution, immersion in Kyariburea medium, coarse when buried and their or these removed it can increase the amount of Samburu holding the face a surface. The Ko杲Gaaru to reduce the speed of moving the surface sample is adopted flights body during smearing. Tip 3 1 a of the rod-shaped body 3 1, tapers Ori, the surface of the tip portion 3 1 a is shown as Aru thing smooth Till.

In the embodiment of FIG. 2 c, rod-to-3 1 of the distal end portion 3 1 side 3 of section 3 1 close to a 1 b 'are swollen Ori (semi-circular cross section), one side 3 1 b' surface There Tyl is roughened. Rod-shaped body 3 1 of the distal end portion 3 1 a and inflated at the surface of the I Nai side 3 1 b '' is Nattiru smooth. In this embodiment, the coating with the Samburu to Medium C in a state of being inclined to the illustrated direction a rod body 3 1 with respect to the surface of the medium C has substantially the same advantages as the embodiment of Figure 2 b Till suitable for foam.

In the embodiment of FIG. 2 d, 'and, on the opposite side 3 1 b' side 3 1 b regions proximate to the distal end portion 3 1 a of the rod body 3 1 different kinds on the surface of a (eg Eba , rough surface of the one side, a rough surface suitable for the collection of Kati test object, rough surface of the rough surface of the opposite side is a rough surface suitable for collecting a liquid or soft et Kai inspection object) is It formed Till. If Iru use of such rod-shaped body 3 1 may be provided with a means for displaying the sample was attached side to cache Bed 2 0. Such display means overlaying the asymmetric discrimination Kyabbu with respect to the longitudinal axis on Kyabbu, to affix the color marks for identification, such as by attaching a magnetic Ma one click, the likely different ways.

In 揷入 to these rod-shaped body 3 1 of Kyariburea medium, the distal end portion 3 1 a 及 beauty on the surface of the region 3 1 b adjacent to the tip portion of the sample base end section 3 1 c from the distal end portion 3 1 a toward but with wipe Wareru tendency, at the time of removal, to capture the appropriate amount of sample again tip 3 1 a and regions 3 1 b surface adjacent thereto. Rod-shaped body 3 1, cap 2 0 toe body to be formed may be, to form them as a separate part, Yoi be attached postfixed proximal portion 3 1 c of the rod-like body to Kyabbu 2 0 .

When forming a Tobintai 3 0 axisymmetrically with respect to the longitudinal axis (eg Eba Figure 2 a, b), the Nyori be Tobintai 3 0 is fixed at the center of the cap 2 0, feces collection body when handling Wareru take me is the machine Niño, there is no direction of the adoption flights body, I fear there is no damage to the culture medium at the time of the smear. Tobintai 3 0 to the longitudinal axis for non-axisymmetric form the case (eg Eba, Figure 2 c), the You that portion to be contacted with the culture medium C is in contact with the right surface of the medium, select the direction if so gripped by the machine the adoption flights body 3 0 Te if Nai. Selection of the gripping direction, the second FIG d method described for Oyobi, mechanical techniques known Te Oi available Till various other methods Dearu.

Rough surface is formed on the rod-shaped body 3 1 of the distal end portion 3 1 a proximate regions 3 1 b surface of the one or more concave-convex, mesh-like unevenness, orientation, length, shape a definite Shinano I wrinkles, or the like pear locations may be formed at a desired depth I Nyo. If specifically, irregularities Article rod-shaped body 3 1 of the longitudinal axis and one or more concave-convex which is oriented parallel to, one or more concave-convex oriented in a direction perpendicular to the longitudinal axis of the round bar 3 0, in other words, cowpea-like body 3 in 1-edge portion 3 1 a and or i ring-shaped concave-convex on the following provided parallel to the surface 3 1 b of area proximate thereto, the longitudinal axis of the rod-shaped body 3 1 Yoi be A'one or more concave-convex such as oriented in a direction inclined with respect to the. Uneven conditions is Te Oi to Tyl embodiment is oriented in a direction inclined relative to the longitudinal axis of the rod-shaped body 3 1, the unevenness Article, appropriate pitch angle to the longitudinal axis of the rod-shaped body 3 1, pitch may be A'with one or more irregularities strip formed in a spiral shape having a spacing, and in intermittent multiple irregularities strip oriented in a direction inclined relative to the longitudinal axis of the rod-shaped body 3 1 § Yoi also me.

These rod-shaped body 3 1, example Eba, synthetic resin, synthetic rubber, glass, ceramics Suarui is a material such as metal, preferably Tsu 且 goodness to form biologically inactive material I. Of course, even if A'a composite material of their forest fee Yoi. In addition, the rod-shaped body

3 1 a colorless transparent, colored transparent, Arui white Nai is formed of a material of light color, Nyori determining the transparency or brightness I optical detection means Nyo, the adhesion amount of the sample is not appropriate or Yoi be to you either the can be determined automatically. If colors Nai The sample itself, by mixing a colorant in the preservative solution or the culture medium, the sample volume or concentration of the feces collection body can be easily determined What the optical detecting means Nyo. Of the time of automated methods Nyoru coating 沬, contact 觖圧 mosquito the rod-shaped body 3 1 and Medium C the surface, allowed the coupling portion with at least a portion or Kyabbu 2 0 and the rod-shaped body 3 1 bar-shaped body 3 1 it is formed by FLEXIBLE of Aru material Nyori, it is not necessary to strictly adjust.

When the medium surface is smooth Nai, 抨圧 mosquito strong, and flexible rod-shaped body 3 1 large Qiao Tsu 且, the tip of the rod-shaped body 3 1 is released is trapped on the surface of the medium C that phenomenon is iterative, because possibility of scattering the sample Aru, pressing mosquitoes, rod-shaped body 3 in 1 material, fixing method between 及 Pi rod-shaped body 3 1 and the cap 2 0, and accuracy of fixing position need Gaaru to consider the relationship.

The contact pressures between the rod-shaped body 3 1 and Medium C the surface may be used the weight of the part amount of Tobintai 3 0 and machines, the Ita resilient biasing means use and pneumatic Ya spring such as use, can be adjusted What a variety of means Niño.

In another embodiment of the present invention, Nattiru from Tobintai 3 0 The sheath 3 2, sheath 3 is movably received in second longitudinal elongated I like body 3 1 Tokyo. The Figure 3 a to e, some embodiments having such 搆成 is shown in cross-section till.
