  • Causa
    Sysmex have found that that potentially inaccurate results could occur from improper mixing of a sample on the sysmex xn-550 automated haematology analyser with the following conditions:- the sample tube setup is for rbt micro collection tube or sarstedt sample tube, and- the xn-550 analyser is connected to a host computer and a host communication error occurs during a sampler run.If there is a sample tube located in the sample tube holder at this time, it will not be processed until the operator accepts the error message. sedimentation of the blood sample could occur during this time between error display and acceptance of the error, leading to potentially inaccurate results because the sample is processed without additional mixing. sysmex has found this issue is due to a software bug.
