  • Notas adicionales en la data
    According to manufacturer's information, if the connector tube is cracked and leaking, and the user does not replace the fluid bottles in the yellow warning system and the tank is empty, the system will signal results with an error signal since the fault of acid / base solution is detected. In this case, a limited number of test results processed before the error signal (up to 20 tests) can be affected and not flagged; however, several subsequent signal errors would indicate that a system malfunction has occurred and that the results need to be verified. #### UPDATED ON 08/21/2017, the field action documentations submitted by the company are filed in the area. If necessary, the area can reassess the action at any time.
  • Causa
