ANALYZER SYSTEM DESCRIPTION

Description of the Alere Afinion™ Test Cartridge

The Alere Afinion™ Test Cartridge is unique for each analyte to be measured, as the reagent composition, reagent volumes and the 

integrated devices are test specific. The Test Cartridge and the sampling device labels have a unique color for each test. The Test 

Cartridges are separately packed in foil pouches to protect the chemicals and plastic devices from light, dirt and humidity. A single 

Test Cartridge contains all necessary reagents for one test and is ready to use. An integrated sampling device is used for collection 

of the patient sample or control. The Test Cartridge cannot be re-used.
