    Note to users of the ABL800 FLEX analyzers

    This note to users gathers changes from previous note to users in one document and outlines some new changes to the operators manual of your ABL800 FLEX analyzer (from software version 6.10). Please remove the existing note to users from the binder of your manual and place this note to users in the binder instead.

    Changes/Description

    Limitations of use and known interfering substances:

    CAUTION - Known interfering substances

    Substance Interference

    ClO4 (drugs) For ClO4 , interference on cCa2+ (1.25 mmol/L level), cCl (110 mmol/L level), and cK+ (4 mmol/L level) has been detected: cCa2+ (1.25 mmol/L level): 0.27* cCl (110 mmol/L level): 4-30 cK+ (4 mmol/L level): 0.3.

    Interference new interference results for ClO4

    * Depending on the pH level

    USB connector Instead of the CD-ROM drive, a USB connector may be available.

    The USB connector can be used for storing data on an USB flash drive (memory stick) or for connecting USB devices. Can also be used for installation of software.

    Introduction

    Instructions to user

    Brief overview of the change

    USB connector or CD-ROM drive

  • Measured parameters

    New table for pleural liquid:

    Parameter Unit Measuring Range

    Test range

    pH pH scale 6.300-8.000 7.0-7.5*

    * If the measured values obtained lie outside the test range, Radiometer advises you to repeat the measurement by means of another method.

    Indoor use statement added according to CSA regulations: Environmental requirements

    Location Indoor use only

    Environmental ratings

    Pollution degree 2 statement added according to CSA regulations:

    Installation category II.

    Pollution degree 2.

    Clot detection A new feature is included in software version 6.06 of the following products:

    ABL7xx Series (XPE) analyzers ABL800 FLEX analyzers ABL800 BASIC analyzer.

    The new feature enables the analyzer to detect clots caught in the measurement chamber under the pH electrode. This document describes it. When to activate the clot-detection feature

    It is especially beneficial to activate the clot detection feature in analyzers frequently used to analyze samples known to be prone to clotting, for example, samples drawn from umbilical cords. Once activated clot detection is active during all sample measurements.

    NOTICE: It is important to note that activating the feature will delay measurement results by approximately one minute, even though it only increases the measurement cycle time by five seconds. It also increases consumption of Rinse solution, but this is minimal.

  • To activate the clot-detection feature

    Contact a Radiometer representative and request that clot detection be enabled via the service program. Clot-detection process During calibration the measuring chamber is rinsed and the pH of the Rinse solution is measured. The value is stored in the analyzer. During a sample measurement the measuring chamber is also rinsed and the pH of the rinse solution is measured and compared with the pH value stored during the last calibration. If the difference between these values (the pH drift) exceeds a pre-determined maximum value, it could indicate the presence of a clot beneath the pH electrode.

    When enabled, the clot-detection feature can generate three new messages that are listed below.

    Analyzer messages

    NOTICE: Operator actions are listed in order of priority. Perform the first action in the list and the actions indicated in the "Removal condition(s) list. If the message persists, perform the next listed action and the actions indicated in the "Removal condition(s) list, and so on.

    No. Message Interpretation Operator action(s)

    Clot suspected beneath pH electrode*

    The difference between the pH of the rinse solution, measured during the sample measurement, and that stored after the last calibration exceeds the maximum allowable drift. This indicates the presence of a clot in the measuring chamber beneath the pH electrode.

    Remove the pH electrode and check the measuring chamber for clots: clean the measuring chamber with a cotton stick moistened with distilled water. Make sure no cotton fibers are left in the measuring chamber

    Clean pH electrode Remembrane Ref electrode Replace pH electrode Perform a 1- or 2-point calibration Removal condition(s): Acknowledge execution of the

    "Clot removal procedure" Successful 1- or 2-point

    calibration

    1025

    * NOTICE: This is a system message.

  • 1026 Clot (pH) detection not possible

    The pH of the rinse solution - stored during the latest calibration - was invalidated when either the Rinse solution was replaced, or when maintenance was performed on an electrode. A new pH value needs to be established by performing a calibration.

    Perform a 1- or 2-point calibration.

    Removal condition(s): Successful 1- or 2-point

    calibration.

    1027 Clot suspected beneath pH electrode

    The difference between the pH of the rinse solution, measured during the sample measurement, and that stored after the last calibration exceeds the maximum allowable drift. This indicates the presence of a clot in the measuring chamber beneath the pH electrode.

    Remove the pH electrode and check the measuring chamber for clots: clean the measuring chamber with a cotton stick moistened with distilled water. Make sure no cotton fibers are left in the measuring chamber

    Clean pH electrode Remembrane Ref electrode Replace pH electrode Perform a 1- or 2-point calibration Removal condition(s): Acknowledge execution of the

    "Clot removal procedure" Successful 1- or 2-point

    calibration

    Step Action

    1. Press Analyzer status > Electrodes and others.

    2. Press Replace.

    Acknowledging execution of a "Clot-removal procedure"

    3. Press Clots removed.
