Title: SELF-CONTAINED MULTI-REAGENT ASSAY DEVICE
Abstract:
A single closed and compartmentalized vessel is designed to contain all assay reagents necessary to conduct an assay of a liquid sample. The vessel is constructed in parts that are rotatable relative to each other, and processing steps of the assay such as combining, mixing, separating, and measuring are all conducted by either rotating the parts relative to each other or rotating the vessel as a whole, all without opening the receptacle or otherwise exposing the user to any of the liquids or substances within the receptacle.
