Abstract

A system and method for analyzing bio-fluid constituents and properties in a bio-fluid sample, wherein the system comprises a bio-fluid collection apparatus, a bio-fluid testing/analysis apparatus, and a reporting apparatus.

Claim(s)

1. A bio-fluid analysis system comprising: a bio-fluid collection apparatus configured to be attached to a toilet and configured to capture bio-fluid from a user; an analysis apparatus to analyze the bio-fluid and to determine one or more constituents in the bio-fluid; and a transmission mechanism to transmit results of an analysis of the captured bio-fluid by the analysis apparatus to a remote computer over a network.;
2. The bio-fluid analysis system of claim 1, further comprising a compartment in a housing of the bio-fluid collection apparatus to receive a cartridge containing one or more testing substrates for receiving the bio-fluid to be analyzed by the analysis apparatus.;
3. The bio-fluid analysis system of claim 2, wherein each testing substrate includes a plurality of test cells, each cell for testing for at least one constituent in the bio- fluid.;
4. The bio-fluid analysis system of claim 2, wherein each testing substrate includes a plurality of test cells each for testing for a level of one or more constituents in the bio-fluid.;
5. The bio-fluid analysis system of claim 2, wherein the one or more constituents in the bio-fluid include one or more of: a pH value, a protein, a ketone, a sugar, a nitrite, leukocyte esterase, bilirubin, urobilinogen, red blood cells, white blood cells, calcium, amphetamine, barbiturates, benzodiazepines, buprenorphine, cocaine, cotinine, ecstasy (MDMA), ethyl alcohol, ethyl glucuronide, euphorics, fentanyl, heroin, hydrododone, LSD, marijuana, metabolite, methadone, methamphetamine, methaqualone, an opiate/Opoid, oxycodone, phencyclidine, phenobarbital, propoxyphene, a steroid, testable markers, synthetic cannabinoid, and THC cannabinoid.;
6. The bio-fluid analysis system of claim 1, wherein the bio-fluid collection apparatus includes a processor that is configured to control presenting one or more testing substrates over a portion of the toilet for receiving the bio-fluid to be analyzed by the analysis apparatus.;
7. The bio-fluid analysis system of claim 1, wherein the analysis apparatus includes at least one optical sensor to determine a level of the one or more constituents in the bio-fluid.;
8. The bio-fluid analysis system of claim 7, wherein the at least one optical sensor comprises a plurality of optical sensors.;
9. The bio-fluid analysis system of claim 1, further comprising a fluid transport device for transporting received bio-fluid for analysis.;
10. The bio-fluid analysis system of claim 1, wherein the bio-fluid collection apparatus includes a biodegradable test strip having thereon a plurality of test cells, each cell for testing for at least one different constituent in the bio-fluid.;
11. The bio-fluid analysis system of claim 1, further comprising a compartment in a housing of the bio-fluid collection apparatus to receive a cartridge containing one or more testing substrates for receiving the bio-fluid to be analyzed by the analysis apparatus, the cartridge containing a power source or a moving mechanism to move the one or more testing substrates proximate the analysis apparatus.;
12. The bio-fluid analysis system of claim 11, wherein each of the one or more testing substrates comprises one or more test cells for testing for a level of one or more different constituents in the bio-fluid.;
13. The bio-fluid analysis system of claim 1, wherein the bio-fluid collection apparatus comprises at least one testing substrate for receiving the bio-fluid to be analyzed by the analysis apparatus, the at least one testing substrate includes a plurality of test cells, each cell for testing for a level of one or more different constituents in the bio-fluid.;
14. The bio-fluid analysis system of claim 1, wherein the transmission mechanism communicates results of the analysis to a server over the network for data storage and reporting.;
15. A testing substrate for receiving a bio-fluid to be analyzed by an optical analysis apparatus, the at least one testing substrate includes a plurality of test cells, each cell for testing for a level of one or more different constituents in the bio-fluid, the at least one testing substrate configured to be moved automatically by a mechanical moving mechanism, each cell being optical readable to determine the level of the one or more different constituents.;
16. The testing substrate of claim 15, wherein the at least one testing substrate configured with a plurality of holes for receiving a moving mechanism therein for moving the at least one testing substrate from a cartridge.;
17. A testing substrate of claim 15, wherein the plurality of test cells test for one or more constituents in the bio-fluid include one or more of: a pH value, a protein, a ketone, a sugar, a nitrite, leukocyte esterase, bilirubin, urobilinogen, red blood cells, white blood cells, calcium, amphetamine, barbiturates, benzodiazepines, buprenorphine, cocaine, cotinine, ecstasy (MDMA), ethyl alcohol, ethyl glucuronide, euphorics, fentanyl, heroin, hydrododone, LSD, marijuana, metabolite, methadone, methamphetamine, methaqualone, an opiate/Opoid, oxycodone, phencyclidine, phenobarbital, propoxyphene, testable markers, a steroid, synthetic cannabinoid, and THC cannabinoid.;
18. A bio-fluid analysis method comprising: providing a collection apparatus configured to be attached to a toilet for collecting a bio-fluid from a user; analyzing the bio-fluid and to determine one or more constituents in the bio-fluid; and transmitting results of the analyzing to a remote computer over a network.;
19. The bio-fluid analysis method of claim 18, further comprising loading a cartridge in the collection apparatus, the cartridge containing at least one test substrate configured with a plurality of test cells for testing for one or more constituents in the bio-fluid include one or more of: a pH value, a protein, a ketone, a sugar, a nitrite, leukocyte esterase, bilirubin, urobilinogen, red blood cells, white blood cells, calcium, amphetamine, barbiturates, benzodiazepines, buprenorphine, cocaine, cotinine, ecstasy (MDMA), ethyl alcohol, ethyl glucuronide, euphorics, fentanyl, heroin, hydrododone, LSD, marijuana, metabolite, methadone, methamphetamine, methaqualone, an opiate/Opoid, oxycodone, phencyclidine, phenobarbital, propoxyphene, a steroid, testable markers, synthetic cannabinoid, and THC cannabinoid.;
