A hand-held test meter includes a strip port connector to receive a test strip. A signal-measurement circuit applies a periodic voltage signal across a sample applied to the strip and detects a resulting current signal. The circuit provides data of the current signal at a digitizing frequency and a selected phase with respect to the voltage signal. A processor records one or more value(s) of the data and then alters the selected phase. Value(s) are thus recorded at each of a plurality of phases. The processor determines a phase difference of the current signal with respect to the voltage signal using the respective sets of value(s). A method for employing a test meter and a test strip is also disclosed, and includes measuring a respective plurality of points for each of a plurality of different measurement phases and determining a phase difference of a fluid sample therefrom.

An analytical test strip for the determination of an analyte (such as glucose and/or hematocrit) in a bodily fluid sample (such as a whole blood sample) includes a first capillary sample-receiving chamber, a second capillary sample-receiving chamber, and a physical barrier island disposed between the first and second capillary sample-receiving chambers. Moreover, the physical island barrier is disposed such that bodily fluid sample flow between the first capillary sample-receiving chamber and the second capillary sample-receiving chamber is prevented during use of the analytical test strip.

Described and illustrated herein are systems and exemplary methods of operating an analyte measurement system having a meter and a test strip. In one embodiment, the method may be achieved by applying a first test voltage between a reference electrode and a second working electrode and applying a second test voltage between the reference electrode and a first working electrode; measuring a first test current, a second test current, a third test current and a fourth test current at the second working electrode after a blood sample containing an analyte is applied to the test strip; measuring a fifth test current at the first working electrode; estimating a hematocrit-corrected analyte concentration from the first, second, third, fourth and fifth test currents; and annunciating the hematocrit-corrected analyte concentration.
