Abstract (en)

[origin: DE19753849A1] The invention relates to an analytic test element for determining an analyte in a liquid. The element comprises a detection element and a canal which permits capillary liquid transport. The canal has a test sample feeding opening situated on one end of the canal which permits capillary liquid transport. The invention is characterized in that the canal which permits capillary liquid transport steadily tapers from the sample feeding opening in a direction of the capillary transport to at least the beginning of the detection element. The invention also relates to the utilization of said analytic test element for determining an analyte in a liquid and to a method for determining an analyte in a liquid test sample with the assistance of said analytic test element.
