  • Reason
    Internal investigations have revealed that cuvettes intermittently may be used twice, and as a consequence there is the potential for erroneous results to be generated without the operator being aware that this has occurred.
  • Action

Thermo Fisher will provide their customers with a mandatory update to software version 5.1.1. Technical Support will be contacting customers as a matter of urgency to schedule the update.
