Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0140760A1] The invention concerns a system for handling and processing tissue section samples and a method for processing tissue sections using the system according to the invention. Thus the system according to the invention comprises a tray for carrying microscopic slides at predetermined positions on the tray. The tray is connectable to an aspirating device for sliding engagement therewith and thereby co-ordinating nozzle positions of said device with the positions of the microscopic slides. According to the method of the invention a multiple number of samples may be prepared and placed on treatment surfaces, such as on microscopic slides. Liquid is added to the samples. The samples are positioned at a predetermined distance below the aspirating nozzles and solution is aspirated from the samples. The samples are positioned below the nozzles with a sliding horizontal motion.
