  • Publication number: 20210283594
    Abstract: An embodiment of the present disclosure is a sample vessel for a holding a sample for analysis by a sample analyzer. The sample vessel includes a body that includes a bottom, an open top spaced from the bottom along a first axis, a side wall that extends from the open top to the bottom, and an interior chamber for holding a sample and that extends from the open top toward the bottom along the first axis. The body includes an opaque portion, a first translucent portion, and a second translucent portion spaced from the first translucent portion a distance that extends along a second axis that is perpendicular to the first axis. The first and second translucent portions are each disposed along the bottom of the body.

  • Publication number: 20210285868
    Abstract: A method and system is described that includes obtaining a whole blood sample and obtaining a first light absorbance profile of the whole blood sample. Next, the whole blood sample is hemolyzed to generate a hemolyzed sample of blood and a second light absorbance profile of the hemolyzed sample of blood is obtained. The level of hemolysis in the whole blood sample is determined by comparing the first light absorbance profile and the second light absorbance profile.

  • Patent number: 9863879
    Abstract: A sample analyzer has a support for an assay sample vessel, a detector, and a shutter assembly. The assay sample vessel contains an assay sample within an assay sample reservoir. The detector has an optical axis aligned with the assay sample reservoir, so as to detect luminescence from the assay sample. The shutter assembly includes an illuminator and is positioned between the detector and the support, intersecting the optical axis, such that the illuminator causes luminescence of the assay sample. Thus both illumination and detection occur on the same side of the assay sample vessel.
