Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9950638A1] A method of supplying a fluid to at least one diagnostic instrument is described. The method includes providing a container (62) containing a first fluid and a source (68) of third fluid. The container of first fluid, the source of third fluid, e.g. water, and the at least one diagnostic instrument (58) are fluidly connected. The first fluid flows from the container and the third fluid flows from the source such that the first fluid and the third fluid mix to produce a mixed fluid. The mixed fluid flows to the at least one diagnostic instrument.
