English term or phrase: waste chamber (in a blood analysis portal)
The Blood Analysis Portal uses disposable cartridges that contain the same technology as large, laboratory benchtop equipment– micro-fabricated biosensor array, calibration system, fluidics system and waste chamber– only in miniature.

German translation:Abfallbehälter
Explanation:
it's a bit hard to say, waste chamber=Abfallkammer literally, but you can't use it, because it is miniature. The translation depends a bit on the material, if it is metal e.g. Behälter is fine.

Thanks for helping! I finally decided on "Entsorgungskammer" - no idea if it is used, but "Abfall" didn't seem to sound very nice in the context of human blood...
