Abstract

At A there is a form of data card which is of particular utility as a sample container. Such is used in a system which provides correlated information handling for correlating the analysis of sample material with the bulk material from which the samples are obtained. The arrangement is especially suitable for semiautomated or fully-automated blood-typing systems. The card is divided into sections 1, 2, and 3. The sections are separable by means of prescoring or otherwise providing a perforated or semiperforated line across the card at the points of separation between the sections. The cards can have each section numbered with a specific set of matching numbers as shown.

Automated Blood Typing

At A there is a form of data card which is of particular utility as a sample container. Such is used in a system which provides correlated information handling for correlating the analysis of sample material with the bulk material from which the samples are obtained. The arrangement is especially suitable for semiautomated or fully-automated blood-typing systems. The card is divided into sections 1, 2, and 3. The sections are separable by means of prescoring or otherwise providing a perforated or semiperforated line across the card at the points of separation between the sections. The cards can have each section numbered with a specific set of matching numbers as shown. On the other hand the perforations can be notched and serrated such that the separated portions are effectively coded or indentured so that the sections can be matched again after separation.

Section 1 can contain printed data relevant to the sample tested, as indicated by appropriate spaces in which blood type, RH factor and date can be entered. Also, data can be punched into any portion of the card either by conventional card punching mechanisms or by a portable manually-operated punch.

Section 2 includes a transparent specimen section provided with a suitable number of areas to carry specimens to be analyzed. The specimen section can be adapted to receive small portions of liquid samples such as blood. Such samples are then mixed with suitable reaction agents and the reactions of...
