Brief description
In the end of August 2017 software version 2.5.0h will be available. The new software will include a lot of
new features as well as bug fixing. Together with the software we will issue a new setting database
version 4.0. The setting update is not compatible with the old software 1.9.0. It is mandatory to update the
software to 2.5.0h in order to use the new settings version 4.0.

2. Units &Limits:
All function can be changed only by a SuperVisor. The changes are under their responsibility.
Open the menu methods>Units & Limits

a. Keep Using function for reagents:

The on board stability given from Human reagents can be extended, just tick the box for Keep

b. Units conversion was renamed to Method Correlation.

c. The number of default replicas for the Reagent Blank can be changed.

3. QC Menu:
a. QC Statistic Levey Jennings graph display and printout:
- SD was added to the left axis and values/ unit was added to the right axis
- The In-Range (min/max) zone is displayed green
- CV is rounded with 2 decimal position
- results out of concentration validity limits are not taken into calculation of statistics or shown in
the graph
- Date and point number was added to the printout

b. QC Done screen the option to delete QC results is removed

c. QC Set
- Lot number is mandatory
- Expected mean was added
- changes in limits are applied to already tun tests for the corresponding QC Set and Lot number
- Copy function was implemented to create a new Qc set using an existing set

d. New Statistic Menu was implemented

QC data can be displayed or printed for a special time period

4. Main Screen
a. Estimated time to finalize sample processing was added.

b. An Eventlog for the system and ISE are added to the main screen. The current operation status
will be displayed such as Initialization, Warming up, Tip cleaning, Cuvette Blank, Cuvette Check,

5. Sample/Test Menu
a. Add/Remove samples to/from a tray
It is possible to add or remove samples directly to/from a sample tray in the sample menu. To
remove a sample the tray needs to be unloaded from the system.

b. In the sample menu a manual dilution factor can be programmed. The result will be
automatically corrected by the factor.

c. The dilution date and time is added to the detail screen on the Test Done menu.

d. Accepted results can be rejected on the Test Done screen.

e. Function to remove all samples from a tray was added to the sample tray menu.

6. Calibration Menu
a. The Lot number was added to the calibration set and traced up to the sample result.

b. Time of calibration curve creation was added to the date in the Calibration In Use menu.

c. Calibration Set menu a Diluted from concentrate was added. The new option allows
performing a pre dilution of the standards with user defined dilution rates.

d. Mean Error between the concentrations and the calculated concentrations and the R was
added to the Calibration menu.

e. An expiration date was added to the calibration set. It is not possible anymore to run a
calibration with an expired calibration set.

7. Maintenance
a. Maintenance Scheduler
The user can program a remainder for all maintenance task.

b. Cuvette Water Blank

To improve the quality of results the Cuvette Water Blank has been introduced into the weekly
maintenance schedule. It should be done after the intensive cuvette cleaning.
The background measurement of each cuvette at all 12 filters will be obtained and stored. The
process takes approximately 15 min and if acceptance criteria are fulfilled, cuvettes are considered
clean. The optical density of each result will be corrected using the stored value.
In the grid accepted limits are shown and bad cuvettes are displayed in red.

c. In the reaction tray menu, cuvettes which failed the water blank are displayed black and
strikeout with a yellow line.

d. Photometer Calibration
The change of cuvette 1 is not necessary anymore, due of the cuvette water blank

8. Service / LIS
a. Cuvette Washer
To avoid splashes and drops outside the cuvettes, the washer moves during the dispensing
procedure some step further down.

b. ISE automatic priming

After the user changes the reagent pack of our ISE, the system will now prime automatically 10
time in order to remove bubbles from the tubings.

c. Stress Test Module

All movements of the mechanical parts are now included to the Stress Test Module. This allows an
easier location of cause of a mechanical problem.

d. Database
A shrink procedure of the database remove empty fields and will re-index the database to increase
the performance.

e. LIS
- To handle samples with priority a new field has been implemented to the LIS protocol. The field
needs to contain an S.
- Individual test results can be transmitted using the Test Done menu.
- Time stamp is added to the ErrorsLog communication

f. Debug
The debug section is now available for the SuperVisor of the Lab. It allows deactivating important
checks. If they do so they have to take the responsibility for it.

g. Monitor resolution: Screens were modified to be displayed in a 1366 x 768 monitor.

h. Software 2.5.0 is Windows 10 (32 and 64 bit) compatible.

9. User Manual
According to the new features the user manual has been updated. All chapters have been revised
to improve the usability for the end user.
