  • Patent number: 9060727
    Abstract: The invention is directed to an integrated device for sampling and testing an analyte. The device generally comprises a housing, a lancing device for sampling an analyte, a test strip for substantially capturing at least a portion of the analyte, and a display unit for displaying a result corresponding to the captured portion of the analyte. The invention is further directed to methods for sampling and testing. For example, one method comprises performing a single operation to sample an analyte, to capture the sampled analyte, to perform testing on the sampled analyte, and to display a result corresponding to the performed test. A method such as this can be carried out using an integrated sampling and testing device of the invention, for example, by placing the device the device on a test site of a subject, such as a patient, and performing the single operation to obtain a test result.

  • Patent number: 5675472
    Abstract: A logic module comprising a panel slidably and detachably coupled to a portion of a module housing, and a logic component detachably coupled to the panel is disclosed. The entire contents of the logic components of the logic module can be quickly and easily removed from or inserted into the module housing without disconnecting cables, connectors, plugs or cards by slidably removing or inserting the logic module into the module housing. Thus, the logic components within the logic module are quickly and easily accessible for repair, replacement, or upgrading. Further, the logic module provides simple, direct access to the logic components without the struggle to remove cables, cards, screws, or housings. In addition, the electronic signals between the logic module and the module housing are consolidated at a single location and are mated by a pivoting or floating mezzanine printed circuit board attached to the module housing.

  • Patent number: 5486942
    Abstract: A method for mounting a liquid crystal (LCD) display in a portable computer. In one embodiment, the method includes the steps of mounting resilient shock mounts on the edges of the LCD assembly, installing the LCD assembly and shock mounts into a housing, placing a horizontal plate into the housing over the LCD assembly and shock mounts (wherein the horizontal plate covers the shock mounts), and joining the horizontal plate to the housing to form the mounting structure. The shock mounts are compressed during the joining step. The LCD assembly is supported by the forces exerted by the housing and horizontal plate against the shock mounts, and is not directly connected to the housing or the horizontal plate.
