When spotting a sample liquid onto a plurality of frameless chemical analysis films, a predetermined amount of the sample liquid is sucked into a spotting tip, the lower end of the spotting tip is brought into contact with the surface of each chemical analysis film and the pressure in the spotting tip is increased to discharge the sample liquid therein onto the surface of the chemical analysis film while lifting the spotting tip away from the surface of the film. When a first chemical analysis film includes a component which can deteriorate the accuracy of measurement of the analyte for the second frameless chemical analysis film, the sample liquid is spotted, before the second chemical analysis film after the first chemical analysis film, on a third frameless chemical analysis film which does not include a component which can deteriorate the accuracy of measurement of the analyte of the second chemical analysis film and the analyte of which is not such that the accuracy of its measurement is substantially affected by a component of the first chemical analysis film which can be transferred to the third chemical analysis film.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
