  • Reason
    On a rare occasion the d-10 software might generate an extra result by duplicating the result from the previous sample and the sample id/injection # from the next sample., the duplicate is readily detectable when sorting the daily summary by the injection # and reviewing for duplication of the same sample id number. we recommend carefully reviewing the daily summary and/or the printed chromatograms for duplicate injection numbers or sample ids. such duplication could potentially lead to discrepant sample results, which should not be reported.
