  • Extra notes in the data
    Electrode, ion based, enzymatic, creatinine - Product Code CGL
  • Reason
    When the user activates the dosicap (containing the crea additive) and mounts it onto the bottle, the threads will not seal correctly causing approximately 10% of the solution to leak out when the bottle is placed horizontally for dissolving the additive. this will cause the concentration of creatinin and creatin in the calibration solution to be wrong, and results in a bias on the crea results.
