Sample retaining member insertion-removal mechanism and image acquisition device


A sample retaining member insertion-removal mechanism is configured so that a receiver is driven to an advance position by a receiver driving unit to project out through an opening of a stage so that a receiving surface makes a downward slope toward a receiving surface positioning portion. Because of this, the sample retaining member insertion-removal mechanism can position the sample retaining member by the receiving surface positioning portion through the use of the downward slope of the receiving surface by simply placing the sample retaining member on the receiving surface.
