Title: TEST ELEMENT ANALYSIS SYSTEM
Abstract:
A test element analysis system (110) for an analytical examination of a sample (118), in particular of a body fluid, is disclosed. The test element analysis system (118) comprises an evaluation device (112) with a test element holder (114) for positioning a test element (116) containing the sample (118) and a measuring device (134) for measuring a change in a measuring zone (122) of the test element (116), the change being characteristic for an analyte. The test element holder (114) contains contact elements (132) with contact surfaces (133) which allow an electrical contact between contact surfaces (117) of the test element (116) and the contact surfaces (132) of the test element holder (114). The contact surfaces (133) of the contact elements (132) of the test element holder (114) are provided with an electrically conductive surface (145) containing metallic ruthenium (146).
