TESTING PROCEDURES

Collecting a sample

•  The patient sample material and control material to be used are specific for each Alere Afinion™ test. 

•  The length of the capillary in the sampling device, and thereby the sample volume, might also vary for the different  

Alere Afinion™ tests.

•  The time from filling the capillary until analysing the Test Cartridge must be as short as possible.

•  Do not use the Test Cartridge if dropped on the bench or floor after the sample has been collected.

Consult the Package Insert that comes with each Alere Afinion™ test kit for assay specific information.

Examples:



1

2

3

Remove the sampling device from the 

Test Cartridge.

Use the handle to keep the Test  

Cartridge steady against the table and 

pull the sampling device straight up.

Fill the capillary; hold the sampling 

device almost horizontally and bring the 

tip of the capillary in surface contact 

with the sample. Make sure that the 

capillary fills completely. It is not  

possible to overfill.

Do not wipe off the capillary.



Avoid air bubbles and excess sample 

on the outside of the capillary.

Immediately and carefully replace the 

sampling device into the Test Cartridge.

The time from filling the capillary until 

analysing the Test Cartridge must be as 

short as possible.

If a printer is connected, touch 

 to print the result.

The lid opens automatically.



The result will be saved in the result records.

6

Remove the used Test Cartridge from the cartridge chamber and discard it in a suitable waste container. 

Insert a new Test Cartridge or close the lid manually.

Keep the lid closed to protect the cartridge chamber when the Analyzer is not in use.

Using the operator ID function

Entering operator ID

If enabled, the operator’s identification (ID) is required before processing an Alere Afinion™ Test Cartridge. (see “Operator  

Configuration” page 14).

Both letters and numbers can be entered (maximum 16 characters). The operator ID will be displayed with the result and stored 

along with the other specific data for this run (see “Patient and control results records”, page 26).

If configured to “enabled with verification” the operator ID entered is required to be present in the operator ID list. (see “Operator 

configuration” page 14).

Enter the operator ID by numbers and/or touch 

 to enter letters. If a barcode reader is connected to the 

Analyzer, a barcoded operator ID can be entered.

Touch 

 to confirm and return to previous view.



The operator will be automatically logged out according to the configuration. (see “Operator configuration” page 14).

The operator may also manually logout by using the operator logout button 

 displayed in the Start-up menu.

Using the patient ID function 

The patient ID function is enabled as a default setting. As long as this function is enabled, the patient ID must be entered for each 

patient sample to be analyzed. The patient ID function can be disabled (see “Patient ID configuration”, page 13).

Entering patient ID

It is recommended to enter the patient ID during processing of the Test Cartridge in the Analyzer. Entering the patient ID will not 

interrupt the processing. It is also possible to enter the patient ID before and after the processing.

1

Touch 


 to enter the patient ID option.

2

It is possible to enter up to four patient ID entries for each patient, P-ID 1 to 4. When enabled, P-ID 1 is 

required to be entered. Scrolling between the patient IDs is done with the 

 and 


Enter patient ID by numbers and/or touch 

 to enter letters. (maximum 16 characters). 

If a barcode reader is connected to the Analyzer, a barcoded patient ID can be entered.  

Touch 

 to confirm and return to previous view.



3

The entered P-ID 1 will appear on the screen.

The patient ID touch button will remain in the view and it is possible to make corrections.

The P-ID 1 will be stored in the memory and displayed along with the other specific data for this run (see “Patient ID configuration”, 

page 13). Patient ID 2-4 will not be displayed in the result records but will be stored in the memory and appear on print outs and 

data transferred to data management systems.
