  • Causa
    Issue 1: samples may stop processing without notification on the dimension vista 500 or dimension vista 1500. this issue is due to a failure to exchange aliquot plates, causing the lane to become unavailable. issue 2:complaints were received on the dimension vista 1500 for a series of unexpected results, some of which were not flagged with errors or results that were flagged with errors. it has been determined that under a rare set of conditions, a timing issue may cause a reagent server to temporarily lose synchronisation during the automatic removal of reagent cartridges from reagent server 2 to waste a container. in the extremely unlikely circumstance that this issue occurs, a flag will be generated for the majority of assays. however, there is the potential to produce unflagged erroneous but believable results for some assays.
