1.1.1.1 Sample Disk
The sample disk (as Figure 1-5 shows) holds sample tubes and rotates
(counter-clockwise only) the designated tube to the position for the sample probe to
aspirate.
Figure 1-5 Sample disk

The sample disk is composed of two circles an inner circle and an outer circle. It
provides 60 tube positions, 30 on the inner circle and 30 on the outer circle. Every
tube position has an identification number. Positions 1-45 are for samples, E1-E5 for
emergency samples, S1-S6 for calibrators, C1-C3 for controls, and W for distilled
water. All the other positions except the position W can be used for samples, too.
The sample disk can hold six types of tubes micro sample cup, collection tube,
12mm68.5mm, 12mm 99mm, 12.7mm75mm and 12.7mm100mm.
To install the sample disk, keep the handle at the vertical position, align the central
hole of the handwheel to the rotor, gently lower the sample disk all the way down
(rotate the disk a bit as necessary) and move the handle back to the horizontal
position to secure the disk to the rotor. When you have finished installing the disk,

The reagent disk assembly is composed of a reagent disk and a refrigerator.
The reagent disk (as Figure 1-9 shows) holds the reagent bottles and rotates
(counter-clockwise only) the designated bottle to the position for the reagent probe to
aspirate.
The refrigerator keeps the reagents in a low temperature environment to keep them
stable and minimize volatilization.
Figure 1-9 Reagent disk

The reagent disk has two circles, inner circle and outer circle. There are 25 reagent
positions in each circle and the reagent disk has totally 50 reagent positions. The
reagent disk can hold the Mindray inner-circle bottles, Mindray outer-circle bottles,
Hitachi 7060 bottles, Hitachi 7170 bottles and Hitachi 20ml bottles.
The refrigerator can run 24 hours a day to keep the temperature at 4-10.
NOTE:

The refrigerator has a power supply independent of that of the
analyzing unit. It will be put into service once the POWER is turned on.

To install the reagent disk, keep the handle at the vertical position, align the central
hole of the handwheel to the rotor, gently lower the reagent disk all the way down
(rotate the disk a bit as necessary) and move the handle back to the horizontal
position to secure the disk to the rotor. When you have finished installing the disk, grab

1.1.1.6 Mixer
The mixer is composed of a mixing bar, bar arm and rotor, as Figure 1-12 shows.
The mixing bar thoroughly stirs the reaction mixture (reagents and sample) in the
reaction cuvette.
Figure 1-12 Mixer

For the single-reagent test, the mixer starts to work after the sample is dispensed
into the reaction cuvette. For the double-reagent test, the mixer starts to work after
the sample or the second reagent is dispensed into the reaction cuvette. The mixing
bar moves to a position above the reaction disk, lowers into the cuvette, and rotates
to mix the mixture in the cuvette. After that, the bar moves to the wash well for
cleaning and de-watering.
1.1.1.7 Reaction Cuvette Loader
The cuvette loader is composed of a cuvette feeder, manipulator and used-cuvette
bucket.
This loader loads new cuvettes to the reaction disk and dumps used cuvettes into a
bucket. The feeder is located in the cuvette compartment and transfers cuvettes to
the manipulator, which grabs the cuvettes and loads them to the reaction disk and
then unloads the used cuvettes and dumps them into the used-cuvette bucket. Open
the lower door of the analyzing unit and you will see the used-cuvette bucket in the
middle.
NOTE:

Normally, the used-cuvette bucket can hold 80 segments of reaction
cuvettes (10 cuvettes per segment). Be sure to empty the bucket in
time so that excessive cuvettes will not overflow and contaminate the
cabinet.

Disposable cuvettes are adopted as the reaction cuvettes. Ten cuvettes are bound
together as one cuvette segment. The cuvette compartment can house 30 cuvette
segments, which are sufficient for 300 continuous tests.
System Description
1-13
When all the cuvettes of a cuvette segment have been used, the reaction disk
rotates the segment to the unloading position, and then the manipulator dumps the
used segment into the used-cuvette bucket and loads the new segment. When a
segment is taken from the cuvette compartment, the cuvette feeder pushes the next
segment to the loading position.
When there are less than 10 segments in the compartment, the analyzing unit,
though keeping working, will give an alarm. Seeing the alarm, you should, if you still
have more tests to do, add more segments to the compartment.
When all the segments in the compartment are used, the analyzing unit will stop first
loading cuvette segments, and then stop dispensing samples when all the segments
on the reaction disk are used. But it will keep working until all the scheduled tests are
done.
Present the cuvette segment to the entry of the cuvette feeder as Figure 1-13 shows
and gently push it toward inside. Load all the segments one by one until they are all
loaded. When you are done, click the Load Cuvette button (refer to 4.1.4.2 Reaction
Disk tab for details) to command the cuvette feeder to press the newly added
segments forward. Be sure not to load the segments as Figure 1-14 shows.
NOTE:

When loading cuvette segments to the entry of the cuvette
compartment, be sure to keep them upright. Remove the inclined
segments immediately upon seeing them and reload them the right
way.
Be sure to load the segments to the cuvette compartment in the right
direction (Figure 1-13). Reversely loaded segments (Figure 1-14) may
jam the loader and halts the analyzing unit.
Do not click the Load Cuvette button before completing adding all the
cuvette segments to the compartment. Otherwise, the loading
operation may fail.

the bucket and the spilled reaction mixture may contaminate and
corrode the cabinet.
Be sure to wear gloves, goggles and protective clothing when loading
or removing the used-cuvette bucket.
Be sure to dispose of the used-cuvette in compliance with the local
regulations.
1.1.1.8 Reaction Disk Assembly
The reaction disk assembly is composed of a reaction disk and a
temperature-controlled chamber, both of which are inside the analyzing unit.
The reaction disk holds the reaction cuvettes, in which the sample reacts with the
reagents and colorimetric readings are taken.
The temperature-controlled chamber provides for the reaction an environment of
consistent temperature.
The reaction disk can hold 8 cuvette segments (80 cuvettes). The cuvettes adopted
are
Disposable;
5mm6mm25mm (5mm optical path);

and the default value is 20.
The analyzer will
automatically calculate the
linearity within the
measurement time and
compare the result to the
line limit and flag the result
exceeding the defined limit.
The formula to calculate the
linearity is as follows:
(1)When more than 9 points
are measured
Linearity = (absorbance
change of the first 6 points
absorbance change of the
last 6 points)/(absorbance
change of all the points)
(2)When the 4 number of
measured points 8
Linearity = (absorbance
change of the first 3 points
Enter the desired value (1-100) into
the edit box.
Advanced Operations
4-43
Parameter What it does How to set
absorbance change of the
last 3 points)/(absorbance
change of all the points)
Inc. Time Applies only to
double-reagent tests.
Defines the interval (counted
in periods. One period
equals 12 seconds) between
the point the sample is
dispensed and the point the
second reagent is
dispensed.
Enter the desired integer (1-60) into
the edit box to the right of Inc. Time.
R. Time Defines the reaction time
(counted in periods. One
period equals 12 seconds).
For the Endpoint method,
the reaction time refers to
the interval between the start
of the reaction and the end
of the reaction; for the
Kinetic or Fixed time
method, the reaction time
refers to the interval
between the point when the
reaction becomes stabilized
and the point when the
reaction is no longer
monitored.
The entered integers must
be no less than -40 and no
greater than 100.
The analyzer defines the
start time of the reaction as
0. For the single-reagent test
the start time refers to the
point when the sample is
dispensed; For the
double-reagent test, the start
time refers to the point when
the second reagent is
dispensed.
Find the corresponding integers
listed on the instructions of the
reagent and enter them into the edit
boxes to the right of R. Time.
Enter the start time into the first box.
For the single-reagent test to be
analyzed by the Endpoint method,
the start time is 0; For the
double-reagent test to be analyzed
by the Endpoint method, the start
time can be negative (-incubation
time-100); For any test to be
analyzed by the Kinetic or Fixed time
method, the start time must be
positive.
Enter the end time, which is no less
than 0 and no greater 100, into the
second box. The end time must be
greater than the start time. For any
test to be analyzed by the Kinetic
method, the end time must be
greater than the start time 7 at least.
Antigen Defines whether the
analyzer should check for
surplus antigen.
When the antibody reacts
with the antigen, the amount
of the product is closely
related to their proportion.
Only the appropriate
proportion can introduce the
maximum amount of the
product and when this
happens, the transmitted
light is minimized and the

largest absorbance is
obtained. Any other
proportion will lead to a less
absorbance and when this
happens, samples of
significantly different antigen
concentrations may have the
same test results.
The surplus antigen
threshold (Antigen) refers to
the maximum or minimum
PC when there is no surplus
antigen.
It only applies to the
Endpoint tests to be
analyzed using the
antigen-antibody reaction.
When 1/3 of the reaction
time has elapsed, at least
80% of the reaction should
be finished. Otherwise, there
is surplus antigen.
Calculation:
(1)For the calibrator of the
maximum concentration:
threshold = 2*(absorbance
of the last point - absorbance
taken at 1/3 reaction time) /
(absorbance of the last point
+ absorbance taken at 1/3
reaction time)
(2)The above formula
applies to samples(including
controls) as well
(3)For a descending
reaction, if:
the calculated threshold of
the sample (including
controls) is less than that of
the maximum-concentration
calibrator, and
the absorbance of the last
point of the sample
(including controls) is
greater than that of the
maximum-concentration
calibrator
then there is surplus
antigen.
(4)For a ascending reaction,
Advanced Operations

Parameter What it does How to set
if :
the calculated threshold of
the sample (including
controls) is greater than that
of the
maximum-concentration
calibrator, and
the absorbance of the last
point of the sample
(including controls) is less
than that of the
maximum-concentration
calibrator
then there is surplus
antigen.
Substrate Defines whether the
analyzer should check for
surplus substrate and
applies only to the Kinetic
and Fixed time method.
Certain highly concentrated
(active) sample may
consume the substrate
shortly. When it happens,
the reaction is no longer a
0
th
-order (kinetic) or
first-order (fixed-time) one,
which may lead to wrong
results. This parameter is
defined to prevent that from
happening. It refers to the
absorbance corresponding
to the critical point of the
linear and non-linear regions
(for the Kinetic) or of the
first-order and multiple-order
regions. It is the minimum
(descending curve) or
maximum (ascending curve)
absorbance within the given
reaction time and there is
still substrate left.
Enter the desired number (0-2.5).
When the entered number is 0, the
analyzer does not check for surplus
substrate.
Response Defines allowed maximum
(for ascending reaction) or
minimum (for descending
reaction) absorbance (for
the Endpoint method) or
absorbance change rate (for
other methods).
Find the corresponding values on
the instructions of the reagent and

6.2.2 Corrective Measures for ISE Unit Errors
The error codes of the ISE unit (optional) are different with other ones. The error
code of the ISE unit has a format of 7 characters, the format of which is <1234567>.
NOTE:

Only one error code of the ISE unit has a format of 8 characters that is
<S0000000>. You can look it as <S000000>.

You can find all the seven numbers in the table below digit by digit and then know
what is wrong with the ISE unit. Each digit represents a certain error. Each row
represents where the error locates in.
When the system reminds you of ISE error, you can open the log to find the error
code.
For example, when you see 0001000, because the number 0 means no error, you
need only to find where the 1 locates in the Digit 4 column. You will find it locates in
the Na+row and you will know there is something wrong with the Na
+
electrode.

7 Calculation Methods
7.1 Reaction Types
The analyzer can perform calculations for three reaction types:
Endpoint
Fixed-time
Kinetic
7.1.1 Endpoint
The endpoint reaction is the most ideal. The reaction reaches equilibrium after
certain period. Because the equilibrium constant is very large, it can be considered
that all substrates have changed into products, and the absorbance of the reacting
liquid does not change any more. The absorbance change is proportional to the
amount of the product present.
Figure 7-1 Endpoint reaction
A
t t1 t2 t3

As shown in Figure 7-1,
1
t is the time when the reagent is added, and
2
t is the
time when the sample is added. The reaction starts when they are mixed. At
3
t the
reaction reaches the equilibrium and the absorbance reading is taken. The reaction
time is
2 3
t t .
The Endpoint reaction is not subject to such condition changes as enzyme
concentration, pH value and temperature, as long as the changes are not significant
enough to affect the reaction time.
7.1.2 Fixed-Time
For the fixed-time reaction, the reaction velocity (v), within a specific period, is
proportional to the substrate concentration [S], namely, v=k[S]. As the substrate is
Calculation Methods
7-2
consumed continuously, the reaction velocity becomes smaller and smaller, and so
does the change rate of the absorbance. It takes much time for such a reaction to
reach the equilibrium. Theoretically, the absorbance reading can be taken at any
time. The reaction can, however, become steady only after a delay because it is
complicated at the beginning and there are miscellaneous reactions due to the
complex serum compositions. For any first order reaction, the substrate
concentration [S] at a specific time (t) during the reaction is:
[ ] [ ]
kt
e S S

=
0

Where,
[S
0
] - original substrate concentration
e - base of the natural logarithm
k - velocity constant
Within the interval between
1
t and
2
t , the relationship between [S] (delta
substrate concentration) and [S
0
] is:
e e
S
S kt kt
2 1
] [
] [
0


=

That is, within a fixed time interval, the delta substrate concentration is proportional
to the original substrate concentration, which is the generality of the first order
reactions. Within this interval, absorbance change is proportional to the substrate
concentration. See Figure 7-2.
Figure 7-2 Fixed-time reaction
A
t t1 t2
t3 t4

As shown in Figure 7-2,
1
t is the time when the reagent is added and
2
t is the
time when the sample is added. From
3
t the reaction becomes steady and
4
t is
the time to stop monitoring the reaction. The absorbance readings are respectively
taken at
3
t and
4
t .
Methodologically, the fixed-time method requires more than the endpoint method
does. All factors that have effects on the reaction velocity, such as pH, temperature
and enzyme concentration, must keep constant in the two-point analysis. In addition,
the timing must be precise and the calibration is necessary.
Calculation Methods
7-3
7.1.3 Kinetic
For the kinetic reaction, the reaction velocity is not related to the substrate
concentration and remains constant in the reaction process. As a result, for a given
wavelength, the absorbance of the reacting liquid changes evenly, and the change
rate (A/min) is proportional to the activity or concentration of the subject, which is
usually the enzyme.
In fact, it is impossible for the substrate concentration to be large enough, and the
reaction will no longer a zeroth order reaction when the substrate is consumed to a
certain degree. Therefore, the theory only stands within certain period. In addition,
the reaction can become steady only after a certain period because the reaction is
complicated at the beginning and there are miscellaneous reactions due to the
complex serum compositions. All reagent manufacturers have strict specifications for
these two periods. See Figure 7-3.

7.2.2 Absorbance Response
For the analyzer, the response (R) is defined as the absorbance change before and
after the reaction, or the absorbance change rate during the reaction process.
The formula for calculating the response (R) is closely related to the reaction type
(kinetic, fixed-time, endpoint), the number of reagents (single, double), and the
number of wavelengths (single or double). They are respectively detailed in the
following sections.

7.2.3 Response Calibration Parameter
The analyzer provides two calibration methods: linear calibration and nonlinear
calibration.
The linear calibration includes the single-point linear calibration (also called factor
method), two-point linear calibration (also called linear method), and multi-point (over
3 points) linear calibration (also called linear regression method). They are mainly
used for tests determined by colorimetry.
The nonlinear calibration includes Logistic-Log 4P, Logistic-Log 5P, Exponential5P,
Polynomial5P, Parabola and Spline. They are mainly used for tests determined by
turbidimetry.

check and cumulative error.
7.2.5.1 Westgard multi-rule
Westgard multi-rule includes ten sub-rules. The clinical meanings of the ten
sub-rules are as follows:

7.2.5.2
X
-R
This rule obtains the difference (R) between two tested values (X
1
and X
2
) of a same
control, and then compares it with the input SD
R
. If R is larger than 2SD
R
or smaller
than -2SD
R
, the rule considers it out-of-control. The value of SD
R
should be obtained
in the following procedures: After pre-testing the control, test it continuously for 20
days. Test it twice before and after adding the sample everyday. Obtain the SD
R
of
the difference (R) between two tested values (X
1
and X
2
).
7.2.5.3 Cumulative sum check
Rule Threshold (k) Control Limit (h)
CS-(1.0SD: 2.7SD) 1.0SD 2.7SD
CS-(1.0SD: 3.0SD) 1.0SD 3.0SD
CS-(0.5SD: 5.1SD) 0.5SD 5.1SD

1 This rule obtains the value of k and the control limit h.
2 When the QC value is no larger than the value of k, no processing is
required.
3 When the QC value overruns the value of k (larger than the upper limit or
smaller than the lower limit), the system starts to calculate the cumulative
sum.
4 For subsequent data, the system continues to calculate the cumulative
sum.
5 When the symbol changes (from positive to negative, or from negative to
positive) with the cumulative sum, the system stops the calculation and
resets the cumulative sum. For subsequent data, the system continues to
calculate the cumulative sum.
Calculation Methods
7-17
6 When the cumulative sum overruns the control limit h (larger than the
upper limit or smaller than the lower limit), the system considers it
out-of-control.
7.2.5.4 Cumulative error
This rule calculates the difference (error, expressed with the symbol plus or minus)
between the tested value and target value of a test of a control.

7.3 Calculation Method of ISE Unit (optional)
An ion selective electrode develops a voltage that varies with the concentration of the ion to
which it responds. The relationship between the voltage developed and the concentration of
the sensed ion is logarithmic, as expressed by the Nernst equation:
Ex =Es +RT/nF log ( C)
Where,
Ex - the potential of the electrode in sample solution
Calculation Methods
7-18
Es - the potential developed under standard conditions
RT/nF - a temperature dependent constant, termed the slope(s)
Log - base ten logarithm function
- activity coefficient of the measured ion in the solution
C - concentration of the measured ion in the solution

The calculation process of the concentration of the ion in the sample is as the following steps.
First, the module measures the potential of the calibrant A and calibrant B and calculates the
slope S of the electrode with the formula below.
