  • Causa
    Beckman coulter has identified two issues occurring on au680 analysers installed with software version 4.05 that may cause a delay in reporting test results.Issue 1: only occurs with non-beckman coulter reagents. the “(” flag, which indicates a shortage of cleaning solution for contamination parameters, is unintentionally attached to test results depending on specific programming in the contamination parameters screen. there is no impact to test results, however the unintentional “(” flag may cause confusion regarding the volume of cleaning solution and unnecessary concern regarding potential carry-over.Issue 2: sample blank tests (total bilirubin and direct bilirubin) included in a qc profile are not analysed when requisitioned from the stat status > qc screen and run on the stat table. no qc results are initially generated for sample blank tests (total bilirubin and direct bilirubin). however, re-running the tests individually will generate the appropriate test results.
