Title: KIT FOR DETERMINING AN ANALYTE CONCENTRATION
Abstract:
A kit (110) for determining a concentration of at least one analyte in a body fluid of a user is disclosed, the kit (110) comprising: a) a sensor module (112) comprising i. at least one sensor element (114) adapted to determine the concentration of the analyte, wherein the sensor element (114) is at least partly implantable into a body tissue (174) of the user; ii. at least one control device (116) connected to the sensor element (114), wherein the control device (116) comprises at least one data collection device (120) adapted to collect measurement data acquired by using the sensor element (114), wherein the control device (116) further comprises at least one wireless near-field communication device (122) adapted to transmit measurement data, wherein the sensor module (112) comprises a sensor module mechanical interface (126); b) at least one data reader module (132) adapted to receive measurement data transmitted by the sensor module (112) via wireless near-field communication, wherein the data reader module (132) comprises at least one data storage device (150) and is adapted to store the measurement data; c) at least one data transmission module (134) adapted to receive measurement data transmitted by the sensor module (112) via wireless near-field communication, wherein the data transmission module (134) comprises at least one wireless far-field communication device (152), wherein the wireless far-field communication device (152) is adapted to transmit at least part of the measurement data to an external device (156) via wireless far-field communication. The data reader module (132) and the data transmission module (134) each comprise a mechanical interface (138, 140) adapted to reversibly engage the sensor module mechanical interface (126), thereby alternatively generating a fixed spatial relationship between the sensor module (112) and the data reader module (132) or the sensor module (112) and the data transmission module (134).
