Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9838917A1] A device is provided for both collecting and testing a fluid specimen. The device includes a specimen container having a collection chamber, an isolation chamber and a test chamber. The collection chamber is in fluid communication with the isolation chamber and sealed from the test chamber. The isolation chamber is also sealed from the test chamber. The fluid specimen is collected in the collection chamber and an aliquot is isolated in the isolation chamber. A fluid releasing element is provided to release fluid from the isolation chamber and establish a flow path to the test chamber while sealing the isolation chamber from the collection chamber. In accordance with another aspect of the present invention, the specimen container may include a tamper evident lid which provides an identification of whether or not the container has been opened which may indicate that the contents of the container have been compromised.
