  • Causa
    Beckman coulter has identified a failure of the unicel dxc ise tubing (lines 11 25 and 26) for ise reference reagent. the failure occurs due to the interaction between a new tubing plasticizer and the ise reference reagent. the supplier's change in plasticizer was a result of a move to a phthalate-free tubing material based on new environmental regulations. as a result a slowforming non-microbial white material may appear inside the tubing. observed symptoms of the presence of the white material can include suppressed ion specific electrode (ise) quality control and patient results ise calibration failures and detached tubing lines 25 or 26 due to obstruction of flow. current investigation suggests it is highly unlikely that incorrect results will be generated.
