  1. The ornamental design for a sample cassette, as shown and described.

FIG. 1 is a top, front and right side perspective view of a sample cassette;

FIG. 2 is a top plan view thereof;

FIG. 3 is a bottom plan view thereof;

FIG. 4 is a front elevational view thereof;

FIG. 5 is a rear elevational view thereof;

FIG. 6 is a left side elevational view thereof; and,

FIG. 7 is a right side elevational view thereof.

The broken lines in the figure drawings are included for the purpose of illustrating portions of the sample cassette that form no part of the claimed design.
