  • Patent number: 9145579
    Abstract: A feature of an analyzing device is that a peeling portion (14) extending outward is partially connected to the outer edge of a reagent retaining portion (13) that is formed in a separating chamber (6) provided in a main unit case (2) and retains a reagent (8). With this configuration, when a droplet of the reagent (8) is dried and fixed on the reagent retaining portion (13), an external force applied to the droplet can be smaller than that on other portions. The dried reagent (8) starts shrinking from the position of the peeling portion 14. At the completion of drying, the reagent (8) can be smaller in size than the reagent retaining portion (13) in plan view and can be larger in thickness than the related art.
