  • Patent number: 8961432
    Abstract: Systems, devices, techniques and methods are disclosed for implementing an actuator mechanism of an analyte testing device. In one aspect, a method to test an analyte includes advancing an analyte sensor from a first position within a sensor cartridge of an analyte testing device to a second position that exposes at least a portion of the analyte sensor outside of the device, advancing a lancet projecting component from an initial position to a cocked position for a subsequent projection of a lancet, in which the advancing the analyte sensor and the advancing the lancet projecting component are initiated by a single operation, projecting the lancet to expose at least a portion of the lancet outside of the device, receiving a testing sample including an analyte at the exposed portion of the analyte sensor, processing the testing sample to determine a parameter of the analyte, and ejecting the analyte sensor from the device.

  • Publication number: 20120329083
    Abstract: A test unit cartridge for holding a plurality of test units includes a first test unit that contains a first analyte sensor and a second test unit that contains a second analyte sensor. The first and second analyte sensors use first and second reagents to detect first and second analytes, respectively. The first analyte is different from the second analyte and the first and second test units are functionally non-fungible. The plurality of test units can also include a third test unit that contains two analyte sensors having two reagents for detecting two different analytes using one fluid sample. A method of using the test unit cartridge is also described, which comprises loading the cartridge into an analyte testing device and cocking an actuator of the device that is configured to (i) expose an analyte sensor of a test unit, (ii) ready a lancet, and (iii) advance a lancet cartridge.

  • Publication number: 20120330188
    Abstract: An analyte testing device includes an analyte sensor, a lancet, and a mechanism with an actuator that operates to independently expose the analyte sensor and advance the lancet into position for use. The analyte sensor is preferably included in an analyte sensor cartridge that houses a plurality of sensors. Similarly, the lancet is preferably included in a lancet cartridge that houses a plurality of lancets. The actuator can be a lever configured to expose the analyte sensor and advance the lancet into position with a single motion (e.g., pulling the lever). The actuator also preferably operates to cock a hammer in preparation for lancing a body member to draw a blood sample. The mechanism can be a linkage coupled with the actuator and configured to engage the analyte sensor and lancet.
