  • Patent number: 9011658
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a sampling plate. In particular the invention relates to a sampling plate for measuring certain selected properties of a liquid sample, such as the glucose levels in a blood sample. Sampling plates of the present invention have a sample zone (20) for receiving a liquid sample and an overflow reservoir (26) linked to the sample zone (20) via an overflow channel (26a), so that excess blood sample can be redirected away from the sample zone (20) and contained.

  • Publication number: 20150068926
    Abstract: A sampling plate (1) is provided comprising a sample zone (2) for receiving a liquid sample, and two drive electrodes (3, 4) with separate respective electrode terminals spaced by a spacing for receiving a the liquid sample within the sample zone for use in driving an electrical signal through the sample. Two sensing electrodes (5, 6) are provided with separate respective electrode terminals spaced between the electrode terminals of the two drive electrodes for use in sensing an electrical signal generated by the drive electrodes within a the sample. A sampling apparatus (15) is provided for use with the plate.

  • Patent number: 8894832
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a sampling plate. In particular the invention relates to a sampling plate for measuring certain selected properties of a liquid sample, such as the glucose levels in a blood sample. Sampling plates of the present invention have a sample zone (20) for receiving a liquid sample which is surrounded by an air porous body (4). The air porous body (4) acts to receive air from the sample zone (20) as it is displaced by an incoming liquid sample, thereby allowing efficient spreading of the liquid sample.

  • Publication number: 20110174618
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a sample measurement system. In particular the invention relates to a sample measurement system for measuring certain selected properties of a liquid substrate, such as the glucose levels in a blood sample. More particularly the invention relates to a sample measurement system for performing electrochemical measurements on a sample, the system comprising a sampling plate with a loading port for receiving a liquid substrate; and a measurement device; wherein the sampling plate comprises a sample zone with at least two discrete testing zones, which sample zone is arranged, in use, to separate the liquid substrate into at least two discrete samples, such that each sample occupies a respective testing zone; and the measurement device is operable to communicate with the sampling plate to measure one or more selected properties of any of the at least two samples.
