  • Causa
    Ortho clinical has received two complaints:1) when a customer installed the add that supported the new vitros chemistry products hba1c reagent kit, the vitros 5,1 fs system posted the two condition codes ua7-239 and syd-024. the condition codes occurred because the short assay name for the new vitros assay had the same name as a user defined assay currently in use on their vitros 5,1 fs system. as a result, the user defined assay target was deleted from their system.2) when a customer installed the add, their system became unresponsive (screen freeze occurred) that required the vitros 5,1 fs system to be restarted; the system posted condition code uz0-047 after the restart was initiated.Due to a software coding error, for both scenarios, all default settings were restored from the add instead of retaining the user modified (configured) parameters and the operator was not alerted by the system.
