  • Acción
    Customers were sent a notification letter on 12/29/15. The notification states that the AQURE System can be used, but to eliminate the potential confusion, blank fields for sample type are to be interpreted as not specified. Customers are told that a Radiometer representative will be in contact to schedule a visit or a remote session. During the visit or remote session the representative will run a database script on the AQURE system which will serve for two purposes: 1. Update existing patient results where the sample type field is blank to include Not specified. 2. Install a so-called database-trigger, which will include the text Not specified in a blank sample type field for future patient results. An upgraded version of the AQURE software will include modified device drivers to ensure that Not specified is inserted if the device transmits an empty field for sample type. The new software version will be installed by local engineer when available.
