CLAIMS

1 . A detection device comprising:

a space for receiving an assay device having one or more chambers for containing a liquid sample;

a drive arrangement engaging the assay device to rotate the assay device;

one or more light sources each arranged to direct light towards the space;

a diffuser arranged in a light path of the one or more light sources, each diffuser arranged to diffuse light from its respective light source, wherein each diffuser is arranged between its light source and the space; and

a light receiver corresponding to each of the one or more light sources, each light receiver arranged to receive light from its respective light source that has passed through the assay device.

2. The detection device of claim 1 , wherein each diffuser is a first diffuser for its corresponding light source, and the detection system comprises a second diffuser corresponding to each of the one or more light sources, each second diffuser arranged between its respective light receiver and the space for receiving the assay device.

3. The detection device of any of claims 1 or 2, comprising an aperture

corresponding to each of the one or more light sources, each aperture arranged between the light source and the diffuser corresponding to its respective light source.

4. The detection device of any of preceding claim, wherein the diffusion angle of each diffuser is between 5 degrees and 10 degrees.

5. A detection system comprising:

the detection device of any of claims 1 to 4; and

an assay device having one or more chambers for containing a liquid sample.

6. A detection system comprising:

an assay device having one or more chambers for containing a liquid sample; a drive arrangement engaging the assay device to rotate the assay device;

one or more light sources each arranged to emit light towards a corresponding one of the one or more chambers, wherein the emitted light forms a light path between the light source and its respective chamber;

a diffuser corresponding to each of the one or more light sources, each diffuser arranged in the respective light path; and

a light receiver corresponding to each of the one or more light sources, each light receiver arranged to receive light from its respective chamber.

7. The detection system of claim 6, wherein each diffuser is a first diffuser for its corresponding light source, each light path is a first light path for its corresponding light source, light from each chamber to its respective light receiver forms a second light path, and the detection apparatus comprises a second diffuser corresponding to each of the one or more light sources, each second diffuser arranged in its respective second light path.

8. The detection system of any of claims 6 to 7, comprising an aperture

corresponding to each of the one or more light sources, each aperture arranged between the light source and the diffuser corresponding to its respective light source.

9. The detection system of any of claims 6 to 8, wherein each light source and its corresponding light receiver are arranged on the same side of the assay device.

10. The detection system of any claims 5 to 9, wherein at least one of the one or more chambers comprises a surface configured to diffuse light.

1 1. The detection system of any of claims 5to 10, wherein the assay device comprises a first surface arranged to reflect light from the light source to the chamber, and a second surface arranged to reflect light from the chamber to the light receiver.

12. The detection system of any of claims 5 to 1 1 , comprising an electric motor coupled to the assay device to rotate the assay device.

13. A method of detecting light comprising:

rotating an assay device comprising a chamber for containing a liquid sample; emitting light towards the assay device;

diffusing the emitted light before it reaches the chamber; and

receiving light from the light source that has passed through the rotating assay device.

14. The method of claim 13, comprising diffusing the light that has passed through the chamber before receiving the light.

15. The method of any of claims 13 or 14, wherein emitting light towards the assay device comprises emitting light to a first side of the assay device, and receiving light comprises receiving light from the first side of the assay device.
