Title: SYSTEM FOR ACCELERATING REAGENT REACTIONS IN A DISPOSABLE CARTRIDGE
Abstract:
A diagnostic assay system for accelerating reagent reactions comprising a base portion receiving a disposable cartridge and a cover portion moveably mounted to the base such that the disposable cartridge may be installed and removed from the base portion. The disposable cartridge includes at least one assay chamber for receiving an assay fluid, and a cartridge body including a syringe barrel operative to move assay fluids into and out of the assay chambers. The diagnostic assay system also includes a heater proximal the at least one fluid assay-containing cavity, operational when the cover portion is in a closed position and configured to heat the assay fluid in one of the assay chambers to accelerate reagent reactions in the disposable cartridge.
