  • Patent number: 9814674
    Abstract: A method of forming a kit containing multiple dissolvable unit dose constructs includes providing at least one muco-adhesive composition comprising a polymer matrix, the polymer matrix comprising a water soluble polymer, an active ingredient and a liquid carrier; forming a plurality of dissolvable thin film unit dose constructs by depositing the at least one composition onto a substrate wherein at least two adjacent dissolvable thin film unit dose constructs are formed having a pre-determined different identifiable physical characteristic with respect to the other as a result of the depositing; and packaging the plurality of dissolvable thin films in a single package to form a kit.

  • Publication number: 20170285016
    Abstract: Test sensors, methods, and systems are described that include a first electrode pair having either two active electrodes or an inactive working electrode paired with an active counter electrode. These active electrodes are different than having an electron transfer mediator on an inactive electrode because in addition to the structural differences between an electrode directly in contact with the conductors of the test sensor verses a reagent coating, there are chemical and functional differences. The active electrodes are formed from an electrode core material including an element that loses or acquires electrons during the analysis and directly participates in the electrochemical reaction of the sample. As the active electrodes are insoluble in the sample during the analysis, an electrochemically stable potential is provided by the active electrodes that can reliably operate at higher operating potentials than conventional electron transfer mediator reagents coated on an inactive electrode.

  • Publication number: 20140262833
    Abstract: A sensor having a bifurcated flow path and method for using the same is disclosed. In some embodiments, the sensor has two flow channels into which sample flow is induced by capillary action, wherein the flow channels are in contact with electrodes configured to generate an electrochemical reaction in the flow channels which can be measured and correlated to the level of an analyte in the sample. In some embodiments, the levels of more than one analyte can be measured using a single sensor.

  • Patent number: 7125481
    Abstract: An electrochemical test sensor adapted to assist in determining the concentration of analyte in a fluid sample is disclosed. The sensor comprises a base that assists in forming an opening for introducing the fluid sample, a working electrode being coupled to the base, and a counter electrode being coupled to the base, the counter electrode and the working electrode being adapted to be in electrical communication with a detector of electrical current, and a sub-element being coupled to the base. A major portion of the counter electrode is located downstream relative to the opening and at least a portion of the working electrode. The sub-element is located upstream relative to the working electrode such that when electrical communication occurs between only the sub-element and the working electrode there is insufficient flow of electrical current through the detector to determine the concentration of the analyte in the fluid sample.

  • Patent number: 7118668
    Abstract: Disclosed is an electrochemical sensor for the determination of analytes in body fluids, e.g. glucose in blood. The sensor involves a non-conductive base which provides a flow path for the body fluid with the base having a working and counter electrode on its surface which are in electrical communication with a detector of current. The base and a cover therefore provide a capillary space containing the electrodes into which the body fluid is drawn by capillary action. The counter electrode has a sub-element which contains an electroactive material and is configured in the system (sensor and meter) to provide an error signal when insufficient body fluid is drawn into the capillary.

  • Patent number: 6841052
    Abstract: An improved electrochemical sensor having a base bearing a working and counter electrode which provides a flow path for a fluid test sample. The working and counter electrodes are configured so that a major portion of the counter electrode is located downstream on the flow path from the working electrode with the exception of a small sub-element of the counter electrode which is in electrical communication with the primary portion of the counter electrode and located upstream of the working electrode. This configuration enables the sensor when the capillary space is incompletely filled with test fluid.
