Title: Analytical strip reading apparatus with a removable firmware device

Abstract: A detecting strip reader with a removable firmware device, comprising a detecting strip reader and a firmware device. The firmware device comprises a first electrical connecting end, a database module, and an operation module, the firmware device being removably electrically connected to a second electrical connecting end in the detecting strip reader via the first electrical connecting end, wherein the characteristic of detecting strip reader is in that: a plurality of light reaction equations of detecting strips are saved in the database module, and when the first electrical connecting end of the firmware device receives an input signal from the second connecting end, the operation module selects one specific light reaction equation from the plurality of light reaction equations saved in the database module and performs the operation of the specific light reaction equation.
