  • Publication number: 20070059204
    Abstract: Disclosed is a point of care diagnostic system that includes an analytic cartridge adapted to receive a blood draw tube such that the cartridge can directly accept a blood sample from the blood draw tube. The cartridge is adapted to perform an assay on the blood sample and to produce an indication of an assay result entirely within the cartridge.

  • Publication number: 20060165558
    Abstract: A cartridge is provided for receiving a sample, including but not limited to blood, urine, and the like. The cartridge includes an input port or dock for receiving a sample from a sample container. A first chamber is in fluid communication with the input port. A flow cell is in fluid communication with the first chamber. The flow cell contains at least one reagent. The reagent can be a calibrant, a fluid containing reactant, a fluid not containing a reactant, a sample, and the like. A pressure port is configured to be coupled to a pressure source, including but not limited to a syringe pump, and the like. A vent port is also provided. The cartridge is configured to maintain fluids in a sealed manner.

  • Publication number: 20060079003
    Abstract: A flow cell system includes a housing, a mixing chamber and a flow channel sized to provide for movement of liquid from the mixing chamber by non-capillary action. A monitoring device is coupled to the matrix. A fluid moving source is coupled to the flow channel. A matrix is coupled to a distal end of the flow channel and contains a compound that will react with the sample to create a change detectable by the monitor device. A fluid path extends from the mixing chamber to the flow channel and to the matrix to bring sample fluid to the matrix for detection of analyte levels therein.

  • Publication number: 20060078471
    Abstract: An apparatus is provided for testing fluid samples includes a sensor, which can be light source, directed to a flow cell and a photo sensor for detecting a light beam reflected from the flow cell. The photo sensor monitors the fluid in the flow cell by sensing the reflected light beam from the flow cell, thereby monitoring the test process. The flow cell has a flow channel the allows fluid sample to flow at a rate where sufficient incubation of the fluid will occur before the fluid enters an area where analyte levels will be detected.

  • Publication number: 20050186681
    Abstract: An apparatus is provided for testing fluid samples includes a sensor, which can be light source, directed to a flow cell and a photo sensor for detecting a light beam reflected from the flow cell.

  • Publication number: 20050186682
    Abstract: An apparatus is provided for testing fluid samples includes a sensor, which can be light source, directed to a flow cell and a photo sensor for detecting a light beam reflected from the flow cell. The photo sensor monitors the fluid in the flow cell by sensing the reflected light beam from the flow cell, thereby monitoring the test process. The apparatus may have additional light source so that the photo sensor may monitor the test process by detecting the absorption light beam or fluorescent light beam from the flow cell at different phases of the test process.
