  • Reason
    Siemens healthcare diagnostics has confirmed that a number of lots can lead to the failure of calibration on sysmex® ca-1500, ca-7000, cs-2000i, cs-2100i, and cs-5100 instruments., in case the berichrom protein c calibration curve on the above mentioned systems is indicated as being invalid due to the 0% point of the calibration by "reaction curve error", the measurement signal does not meet the instrument's check algorithm for at least a value of 0.001dod and therefore this point gets flagged., follow-up communication, the manufacturer has issued a new protocol disc version with new and enhanced assay applications for sysmex cs-2000i/cs-2100i systems. this also includes a new protocol disc version with new and enhanced assay applications for sysmex cs-2500 systems and on sysmex cs-5100 systems.
