A plurality of Point-of-Care (POC) tests on a single cartridge (300) is provided such that sequential or nonsequential tests may be performed in an integrated fashion without changing the test cartridge. Each cartridge can contain a penetrating member sensor (302) combination in a radial disk format, interrogated and read by a single illumination/detection device. Alternatively a series of tests can be measured electrochemically and reported. Only those tests, which are required at the time, the sample is taken need to be reported, though all tests are carried out.
