A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11915094B2) discloses a sample analysis system that includes an analysis device, a scanning component, and a processor. The system is designed to test samples by scanning a region containing a sample identifier on a sample holding container before testing the sample. The processor determines the sample identifier based on the scanning information and allocates a unique invalid identifier to the sample if the sample identifier cannot be determined. Additionally, the system includes an image information obtaining component that captures an image of the region containing the sample identifier, providing a backup method for identifying samples in case the scanning information is insufficient.

Furthermore, the sample analysis system features a display with a sample identifier modification interface that allows users to input sample identifiers for invalid samples. The processor generates a sample identifier image based on the captured image and enables users to modify the invalid identifier to the inputted sample identifier. The system also establishes a mapping relationship between the position index and sample identifier of each sample, enabling the processor to determine the sample identifier based on the position index if scanning and image information are insufficient. Additionally, the processor can automatically modify other corresponding invalid identifiers when one invalid identifier is changed, ensuring consistency in sample identification throughout the system. Overall, the patent highlights a comprehensive sample management method that enhances sample identification and testing processes in analysis systems.
