  • Causa
    Due to a software anomaly, the temperature in the well wash module may be out or range without notification to the operator.Temperature monitoring is performed by the vitros system for each subsystem (i.E. microslide, microtip and microwell). ortho-clinical's investigation confirmed that under very specific conditions, the temperature for the well wash module may be out of range without alerting the operator..If the anomaly occurs, it is possible for the vitros system to process samples outside of the proper temperature range, potentially leading to biased patient result. the results will not have the proper ‘wt’ (wash temperature) result code.
