    Beckman Coulter has released the software correction for this issue at the end of January 2018. A Beckman Coulter Field Service Engineer will contact users to schedule the installation of the software upgrade. In the interim, users are advised to follow the steps and warnings outlines in the IFU when running STAT specimens to avoid sample mis-identification. When running multiple specimen via the single tube loader, wait for the currently loaded specimen to be in the "incubating" status in the "details" column on the Running screen before selecting the STAT button or attempting to cancel the run.
