  • Publication number: 20220050076
    Abstract: A sensor includes a working electrode in contact with an analyte solution; an amplifier including: a source terminal; a drain terminal; a back gate terminal; and nanowires, each nanowire electrically connecting the source terminal to the drain terminal; and an insulator having a first side and a second side. The working electrode is positioned to the first side of the insulator. The source terminal, the drain terminal, and the nanowires are positioned to the second side of the insulator. The insulator prevents direct electrical contact between the working electrode, the analyte solution and either the source terminal, the drain terminal, or the nanowires. The working electrode is configured such that, when a chemical species is present in the analyte solution, a variation in an electrical field at a location of the nanowires is induced, inducing a corresponding variation in an electrical current between the source terminal and the drain terminal.

  • Publication number: 20220018736
    Abstract: A device including a casing first part; a casing second part; a test strip having a sample pad; and a capillary sample collector, wherein the capillary sample collector has an open distal end configured to collect a fluid sample by capillary action and an open proximal end configured to dispense the fluid sample therefrom, wherein, the device is assembled such that the casing first part and the casing second part are joined, wherein a distal end of the casing first part and a distal end of the casing second part are sealed together in a fluid-tight manner, wherein the sample pad is positioned in proximity to the capillary dispensing end, wherein the dispensing end is positioned such that a dispensed fluid sample will be dispensed onto the sample pad, and wherein a dispensing angle between the dispensing and the sample pad of the test strip is less than 10 degrees.

  • Publication number: 20170067889
    Abstract: A biological sample device for detecting the presence or absence of specific analytes in a sample is provided. A sample, such as a blood or urine sample or a pre-processed tissue sample is collected on a porous pad. A first membrane in liquid communication with the sample pad includes an analyte-specific, electroactively-labeled detection reagent reactive with the an analyte. A second membrane in liquid communication with the first membrane includes a biosensor whose surface has been modified by an analyte-specific capture reagent. The analyte-binding capture reagent immobilizes the analyte electroactive label complex on the surface of the biosensor, whereby direct interaction of the electroactive label with the surface of the biosensor generates an electric signal used by an electronic processing unit to determine whether the analyte is present in the sample.

  • Publication number: 20110245841
    Abstract: A sieving device and related methods including an expandable sieve mounted on a surgical guide wire. The expandable sieve may be a self-expandable braided filter which is mounted on the guide wire in an axially fixed position, or moveable in one or more directions. The sieving device is deployable in an obstructed ureter, or other body lumen, such as at the beginning of a stone removal procedure, prior to actual stone defragmentation (lithotripsy) phase. The expandable sieve may be set distal to the obstructive stone and expanded to span the entire local ureter cross section in order to retain stone fragments larger than a predetermined size from migrating distally towards the kidney under high irrigation rates/pressures during lithotripsy.
