  • Patent number: 11213228
    Abstract: A sensor assembly for analysis of physical parameters and chemical constituents of small volume samples of bodily fluids with at least two analyte sensors. The sensor assembly including a separation panel with an upper surface and a lower surface and upper and lower fluid channels disposed within the upper and lower surfaces respectively. The fluid channels extending substantially between the first and second ends and when in an operating mode bodily fluid is in fluid communication with both the upper and lower fluid channels. The sensor assembly including a potentiometric chip positioned atop and an amperometric chip positioned beneath the separation panel with at least one analyte sensor positioned above and beneath each of the fluid channels and when the sensor assembly is in an operating mode the fluid is in fluid communication with the analyte sensors. A bonding media is disposed beneath the amperometric chip.

  • Publication number: 20210231642
    Abstract: A plasma separation system and process for providing filtered plasma from a blood sample is described. The system may include a blood separation well having a separation membrane for filtering the blood sample. The filtering process may be aided by the use of a negative or positive pressure source attached to the plasma separation system.

  • Patent number: 10928409
    Abstract: A sample receiving assembly capable of receiving a fluid sample from sample containers having different sizes and shapes includes an arm, an arm holder, a sample probe, and a support member, the support member having a bore therethrough and a plurality of linear grooves. The arm is disposed within the arm holder and the sample probe is disposed within the arm. The arm holder includes a hollow pivot pin insertable through the bore in the support member. The sample probe has a first portion extendable through a distal end of the arm, and a second portion extending axially through the hollow pivot pin. The plurality of linear grooves in the support member are sized and positioned to receive a guide pin on the arm and guide retraction of the arm into the arm holder from an extended position to a retracted position.
