  • Reason
    The manufacturer's internal testing has determined that, if the user adheres to the instruction manual that provides the specified pipetting order and the "carryover" logic specified in the user manual for ilab 600/500 and the user manual for ilab taurus, the values obtained for magnesium could be higher than expected. the problem was found to be in carryover, that is, in transferring the reagent between the two analyzes, which is lagging behind on the needle, when the magnesium test is performed as part of a routine job.
