  • Patent number: 5035862
    Abstract: An analytical system for the determination of a component of a fluid, especially blood or urine, is disclosed. It comprises test carriers, which have at least one test field, and an evaluating instrument for the measurement of a characteristic change in the test field.In order to achieve rapid and selective heating of individual test fields, especially in test carriers that are multiple-test strips, the corresponding test field has a metallic conducting layer, which runs parallel to the test field and is in thermal contact with it. The evaluating instrument has an induction heater. The guiding mechanism of the test carrier in the evaluating instrument is designed so that the metallic conducting layer, at least before the measurement, is in the working area of the alternating magnetic field emanating from the induction heater.
