Abstract : A spin sample reader for holding and reproducibly moving a sample to be read by an analyzer comprises a fixed support, a first arm pivotally mounted to the fixed support and a second arm pivotally mounted to the first arm. The first and second arms are also engaged for slidable movement with radial scales between the support and the first arm and between the first and second arms, and a linear scale also provided between the first and second arms. A sample support disc is rotatably mounted to an end of the window of the analyzer. Equipment is provided for incrementally rotating the disc by preselected amounts. By reading the scales and rotating the disc at each scale reading, an entire sample can be symmetrically scanned.
