  • Patent number: 5067093
    Abstract: A method and apparatus are disclosed for reading a test element and a reference element in an incubator to insure that a) they are both read at the same wavelength and b) the reading at this wavelength of the reference element used to compare the test element reading, is the closest in point of time to the reading taken of the test element. In some cases, this requires the comparison with a reference element that is read after the reading of the test element.

  • Patent number: 4943415
    Abstract: There is described a cover for test elements for use in stations of an analyzer that are downstream from the sample-spotting station. The cover is improved in that its undersurface is grooved lengthwise to accommodate a drop of sample protruding from the test element. However, the clearance groove does not extend the full length of the cover, to prevent significant evaporation.

  • Patent number: 4935374
    Abstract: There are disclosed polyethylene evaporation covers and a method of analysis that uniquely solve the problem of contamination of CKMB test elements when phosphorous test elements are incubated in the same incubator. The solution is to have the surface of the evaporation cover the contacts the test element, be non-porous polyethylene.
