Abstract

See full text

A tray-hanging device is disclosed for trays used in an analyzer. It comprises a rotatable platform having a raised annular lip configured to engage a first part of the tray along a first side of the lip, and a depending skirt portion positioned above the platform, configured to receive the weight of a second part of the tray pressing on a side of the skirt portion opposite to the engaged first side of the lip, the lip further including centering notches shaped to cooperate with ribs on the tray to prevent relative respective rotation of tray and device, and to properly locate the tray on the platform.
