Quote:
One of the peculiarities of the patent system is that you don't have to actually prove your technology works to get a patent on it. That explains why Theranos—which was famously unable to get its technology working—managed to get a number of patents anyway. These included Patent #8,283,155: "Point-of-care fluidic systems and uses thereof."

This patent describes a generic architecture for a machine that automates testing for the presence of substances in bodily fluids.
