P.1.2 Precautions Against Potential
Hazards
Chemical
The operator is responsible for taking all necessary
precautions against hazards associated with the use
of cl i ni cal l aboratory chemi cal s. Speci fi c
recommendations for each reagent used on the
analyzer are found on the package insert for each
chemistry. Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) are
available for Boehringer Mannheim reagents.
Please ensure that all samples have been
allowed to coagulate completely and are
subsequently centrifuged correctly!
Samples containing fibrin clots may block the
sample probe and lead to incorrect sampling.
If you are using blood-collection tubes
containing a gel (e.g. Vacutainer SST) please
follow the manufacturers recommendation.
Immediately remove any reagent spillage from the
instrument.
Electrical
As with any electronic equipment, electrical shock
can occur. Use extreme caution when working
around the instrument. Avoid contact with any
electrical wire or components. DO NOT attempt to
work in any electronic compartment with the power
on. ALWAYS turn the MAIN circuit breaker off and
unplug the instrument from the power source before
working where contact with electrical wires, terminal
strips, motors, or other electrical components is
possible.
Should one of the instrument circuit breakers or fuses
"blow", DO NOT attempt to operate the analyzer
before calling Boehringer Mannheim Customer
Technical Support.
Mechanical
As with any mechanical system, there are certain
precautions to take when operating the instrument.
DO NOT wear loose garments or jewelry that could
catch in mechanisms such as the sample probe
assembly. Whenever possible, operate the
instrument with the main cover down. DO NOT
attempt mechanical repair unless the instrument is in
Stand-by or OFF.

P.3 Facility Specifications
P.3.1 Introduction
Installation of the instrument is performed by a
Boehringer Mannheim representative. The customer
is responsible for providing the necessary facilities as
specified in Section P.3.6.
P.3.2 Electrical Requirements
The analyzer must be wired for 115 10% VAC,
30 amp, 60 Hz. A separate, instrument-dedicated
circuit must be provided.
P.3.3 Water
The instrument requires 15-30 liters of bacteria-free
deionized water per hour during operation, with a
minimum resistance of 1.5 megohm. The water flow
rate to the instrument must be at least 80 liters per
hour during operation with a minimum pressure of 15
psi and a maximum pressure of 25 psi. This flow rate
(not to be confused with actual water consumption)
permits the deionized water reservoir to fill quickly
when necessary.
P.3.4 Drain
Although the instrument is equipped with a 10-liter
waste water container, it is preferable that a floor drain
be provided. It should be capable of carrying 30 liters
of waste water per hour during maximum operation.
The drain cannot be more than 10 cm above the floor
level.
P.3.5 Temperature and Humidity
The instrument generates approximately 6700 Btu/
hour. There must be adequate ventilation in the area
of the instrument to maintain a temperature range from
15 to 32 C. Room temperature variation within any
specific day should not exceed 2 C. The top of the
instrument must not be in direct sunlight or in the path
of forced air flow. Free air flow must be allowed around
all sides of the instrument.
Relative environmental (humidity) range: 45 - 85%
without condensation.
P.3.6 Instrument
The di mensi ons of the anal yti cal uni t are
approximately 99 cm wide 74 cm deep 112 cm
high. The dimensions of the control unit are
approximately 61 cm wide 74 cm deep 122 cm
high. Clearance on all sides should be 91 cm
minimum after installation. The instrument requires a
minimum door width of 122 cm and a turning radius of
127 cm. The analytical unit weighs approximately 410
kg. The weight is evenly distributed on four leveling
feet. The operational unit weighs approximately 50 kg.
Access to normal laboratory facilities such as sink,
refrigerator, and storage space is essential. No fume
hood or external exhaust system is required.

1.1.4 Analytical Unit Operating
Principle
Figure 1-2 gives an operational overview of the
photometric portion of the instrument. The general
sequence of events illustrated is:
The sample disk rotates the appropriate sample to
the sample probe (1).
The sample probe aspirates sample for testing (2).
If ISEs are selected, the sample is delivered into
the ISE dilution vessel (3).
If photometric chemistries are selected, the
sample is delivered into a reaction cell on the
reaction disk (4).
Figure 1-2: Operational Overview
1 Sample Disk
2 Sample Probe
3 ISE Dilution Vessel
4 Reaction Disk/Incubation Bath
After the sample is placed into the reaction cell,
the reagent probes add up to four different
reagents in separate dispense cycles (5).
Stirring paddles mix the sample after the
addition of each reagent (6).
Incubation occurs as cells are immersed in the
incubation bath below the reaction disk. Reaction
cells rotate through the photometer lightpath and
a measurement is taken (7).
The cell rinse unit removes reaction product
waste and cleans reaction cells for reuse (8).

information. Two floppy disk drives are used.
Generally, drive 1 is used for system program and
parameter storage, drive 2 for data storage. The CPU
is located in the analytical unit.
1.2.11 Floppy Disks
The system disk contains all necessary programming
information for the instrument to function as a
chemistry analyzer. When the instrument ON/OFF
switch is turned ON, all instrument operating
parameters are automatically read from the system
disk into computer memory.
The data disk records test results for a maximum of
800 routine samples, 800 routine rerun samples, and
200 stat rerun samples. When this disk becomes full,
it can be removed from the instrument and saved to
maintain a record of test results. If this type of record
is not desired, the disk can be cleared of all data and
reused.
The application disk contains the chemistry
parameter information for each Boehringer Mannheim
reagent. This information is read into instrument
memory and then written onto the system disk. The
parameter disk eliminates the need for
manual entry of chemistry parameters.
1.2.12 Printer
The instrument uses an 80-column, graphics-capable,
dot matrix printer. Patient results can be printed in 8-
1/2 11 inch report format or short format, which uses
less paper.
1.2.13 Host Interface
The instrument can be bidirectionally interfaced with a
host computer.

1.3 Sampling System
1.3.1 Introduction
The Sampling System consists of a sample disk,
sample pipettor, sample probe, and a sample
probe rinse station. The sample probe is mounted
on a robotic sample probe arm that moves the probe
from its home position to its aspirate and dispense
positions. Each of these components is explained in
detail in the following sections.
1.3.2 Sample Disk
The sample disk (shown in Figure 1-6) sits on a motor-
driven turntable. Three concentric rings of sample
positions are arranged as follows:
Outer Ring: 50 positions for ROUTINE samples
and barcoded Stats
Middle Ring: 3 positions for WASH solution
(W1-W3)
20 positions for STAT samples
(E51-E71)
17 positions for room temperature
CALIBRATORS (S1-S17)
Inner Ring: 17 posi ti ons for refri gerated
CALIBRATORS (S18-S34)
8 posi ti ons for refri gerated
CONTROLS (C1-C8)
The middle and outer rings form the outer portion of the
sample disk and are removable. The inner ring is
seated in a refrigerated compartment. This ring is
covered to ensure the refrigerated compartment
temperature is maintained. The inner ring can also be
removed. Blank, calibrator, and control materials are
placed in dedicated positions on the inner disk rings.
1. INTRODUCTION
1.3 Sampling System
Routine and stat patient samples are placed in
positions on the middle and outer rings as defined
when making test selections.
The sample disk rotates to bring the desired sample
cup into position next to the sample probe (the
sampling station) for specimen sampling.

1.3.3 Sample Probe
The sample probe (shown in Photograph 1-1) carries
sample from the sample disk to a reaction cell or ISE
dilution vessel. The sample probe is mounted on the
sample probe arm and also acts as the liquid-level
sensor. Sensing the level of the liquid reduces
exposure of the outer probe walls to specimen and
also alerts you to insufficient sample volumes. This,
along with the internal and external probe wash,
minimizes any chance of cross contamination
between samples.
1.3.4 Sample Probe Arm
The motor-driven sample probe arm moves the
sample probe from its home position to the aspiration
position at the sample disk, and then lowers the probe
into the sample. Once the sample probe detects
sample via liquid level detection (capacitance),
the sample probe arm stops, and sample is aspirated.
After sample has been aspirated, the probe is moved
to the reaction disk or the ISE dilution vessel. The
sample probe arm lowers the probe into the reaction
cell or ISE dilution vessel at the sample dispense
position. Sample is dispensed while the beveled
sample probe tip is in contact with the bottom of the
reaction cell or dilution vessel. This ensures that a
precise volume of sample is deposited into the bottom
of the cell or dilution vessel even when using a low
dispense volume. The sample probe is spring-
mounted on the arm to avoid damage to the probe,
reaction cell, or dilution vessel.

1.3.5 Sample Pipettor
The sample pipettor, shown in Photograph 1-2, is a
positive-displacement pipettor, positioned behind the
left front cover of the instrument. The pipettor, and the
plastic tubing that connects it to the sample probe,
are filled with degassed, deionized water.
The pipettor motor retracts the plunger within the
chamber of the pipettor, and sample is aspirated into
the tip of the sample probe.
1.3.6 Sample Probe Rinse Station
The sample probe rinse station is located between the
sample disk and reaction disk. When sampling is
completed for a particular sample, the sample probe
arm moves back into position above the rinse station.
Water is flushed inside the probe and onto the outer
surface of the probe tip before aspirating the next
sample. This rinse removes excess sample adhering
to the inside or outside of the probe.

1.4 Reagent System
1.4.1 Introduction
The Reagent System consists of two reagent disks,
two reagent pipettors that aspirate reagent into
corresponding reagent probes, and two reagent
probe rinse stations.
1.4.2 Reagent Disks
Reagent containers are stored on the instrument in
two identical reagent disks, labelled R1 and R2. As
shown in Figure 1-8, each reagent disk contains 33
positions. Position 33 on each disk is used for the
reaction bath detergent, Hitergent. This allows for 32
reagents on each disk. The reagent compartments
are refrigerated.
Each reagent disk has a locking cover that helps
prevent evaporation of reagents. A cutaway section in
each cover allows the reagent probe access to
aspirate reagent.
When the instrument is ready to add reagent to a
reaction cell, the appropriate reagent disk rotates,
bringing the required reagent container into position at
the reagent aspiration station.

1.4.3 Reagent Probes
The reagent probes (R1 and R2) carry reagent from the
reagent disks to the reaction cells. The reagent
probes are mounted to reagent probe arms. The
reagent probes also act as liquid level sensors,
signaling the computer when the reagent probe tip is
immersed in reagent (or if no reagent is present). The
second reagent probe is used to add additional
reagent to the reaction cell at various dispense times,
depending on the reaction.
1.4.4 Reagent Probe Arms
The reagent probes are mounted on motor-driven
reagent probe arms. After the reagent container is in
position at the reagent aspiration station, the reagent
probe arm moves the reagent probe from its home
position to the reagent disk and lowers the probe into
the reagent container. After the reagent probe detects
reagent, the instrument stops lowering the probe, and
reagent is aspirated.
After reagent has been aspirated, the probe moves
from the reagent container to the reaction disk, where
reagent is dispensed into a reaction cell containing
patient sample. Unlike the sample probe, the reagent
probes are not lowered into the reaction cell. Reagent
is dispensed from the top of the reaction cell.

1.4.5 Reagent Pipettors
The reagent pipettors (shown in Photograph 1-5) are
positive-displacement pipettors, positioned behind
the left front cover of the instrument. The pipettors, and
the plastic tubing connecting them to the reagent
probes, are filled with degassed, deionized water.
When the reagent probe tips are immersed in reagent,
the reagent pipettor motors retract the plungers within
the chamber of the pi pettors,
and reagent is aspirated into the reagent probes.
After the reagent probes are in position above the
reaction disk, the pipettor motors are reversed, and
reagent is dispensed into the reaction cell. Following
reagent dispense, the reagent probes are moved to the
reagent probe rinse stations.
1.4.6 Reagent Probe Rinse Stations
Reagent probe rinse stations are located between the
reaction disk and the reagent disks. After each
reagent dispense, water is flushed through the probes
and onto their outside surfaces.
1.4.7 Stirring Units
The stirring units (shown in Photograph 1-6) consist
of two slender stirring paddles, the motors that spin
the paddles, and the motor that moves the stirring
paddles to and from the reaction disk.
Following the addition of each reagent to a reaction
cell, the reaction disk pauses with that reaction cell in
position next to the stirring units. The stirring units
move from their home position to the reaction disk,
and the stirring paddles are lowered into the reaction
cells. After the paddles are fully lowered into the cells,
the stirring motors are briefly activated to mix the
contents of the reaction cells. The stirring units then
are lifted from the reaction cells, and returned to their
original positions where they are thoroughly rinsed
with deionized water.

1.5 Photometric Measuring
System
1.5.1 Introduction
All photometric tests are measured by the
photometer. The photometer is located adjacent to
the reaction disk. The photometric measuring
system detects color or turbidity change produced by
chemical reactions between reagents and the analyte
of interest in the sample while in the reaction cells.
The photometric measuring system is capable of
bichromatic photometry of endpoint, kinetic,
ultraviolet, and visible light chemistry determinations.

1.5.2 Reaction Disk
The reaction disk is a large rotatable disk holding 120
reusable plastic reaction cells (cuvettes) upright
around the outside perimeter of the disk. These cells
are immersed in an incubated reaction bath. This
maintains the cells at 37 C, an optimal temperature
for the chemical reactions occurring in the cells. The
reaction disk rotates to transport the cells to all
reaction processing stations including the photometer
lightpath.
The components listed below in Figure 1-10 are
positioned around the reaction disk and are necessary
for photometric reaction processing:

1.5.3 Reaction Bath
The circular reaction bath, positioned beneath the
reaction disk, maintains the reaction mixtures in the
reaction cells at a temperature of 37 C. Water in the
reaction bath is circulated by a pump through a
refrigeration unit and heater where it is cooled or
heated, as necessary, to maintain temperature ( 0.1
C). The DI water storage tank contains water that is
heated to the temperature of the reaction bath. This
ensures a consistent supply of heated water for the
rinsing processes.
Two glass windows (inner and outer) are positioned in
opposite walls of the incubation bath. These windows
permit light from the photometer lamp to pass through
the reaction bath water, and through the reaction cells
in the bath. The light beam emerges from the outer
window of the reaction bath and enters the instrument
photometer.
Figure 1-11: Reaction Bath
A liquid level sensor detects the water level of the bath.
Deionized water is automatically added to the reaction
bath, as determined by the liquid level sensor, to
compensate for evaporation. This occurs even in
Stand-by. In addition, the entire incubation bath water
volume is automatically replaced with fresh deionized
water each time the instrument is powered up and
during Wake-Up
TM
.
Figure 1-11 shows a cutaway view of the reaction bath

1.5.4 Hitergent
Hitergent is a non-ionic, bacteriostatic detergent
automatically added to the reaction bath by the
reagent probes whenever the water is exchanged. It
acts as a surfactant to minimize the formation of
bubbles that could potentially interfere with the
photometer readings.
1.5.5 Photometer
The photometer is positioned so that absorbance
readings of each reaction cell are taken as the reaction
disk is turning. This arrangement enables the
instrument to read the absorbance of each reaction
cell as frequently as once every 20 seconds.
The photometer lamp is positioned beneath the center
of the reaction disk, within the ring of the reaction
bath, as shown in Photograph 1-7. The lamp is
encased in a constant-temperature water jacket ,
which helps to maintain a constant energy output from
the lamp, and also extends the lamp life.
After the reaction mixture is stirred and incubated, the
absorbance of the reaction mixture is measured by
the photometer, and the results are calculated from
those readings.

1.5 Photometric Measuring System

Instrument parameter information for each assay is
programmed into the instrument computer. The
computer uses the parameter i nformati on
programmed to select the wavelengths and the times
at which a reaction mixtures absorbance is read and
to calculate results.
The instrument computer keeps track of which test is
being performed in each reaction cell. It also knows
when each reaction cell passes through the
photometer light path. The computer uses this
tracking ability and the programmed read instructions
to obtain test results.
1. INTRODUCTION
1.5 Photometric Measuring System
Boehringer Mannheim/Hitachi Photometric System
The light from the photometer lamp passes through the
following structures in sequence:
1) Inner reaction bath window
2) Reaction bath water
3) Reaction cell and its contents
4) Reaction bath water
5) Outer reaction bath window
6) Photometer.
When the light beam enters the photometer, it strikes
a diffraction grating. This separates the light into its
constituent wavelengths, and reflects them onto a
fixed array of 12 photodetectors. Each photodetector
is permanently positioned to detect light at a different
wavelength. Figure 1-12 shows a cutaway of the
photometer light path.

1.6 Cell Rinse System
1.6.1 Cell Rinse Unit
As shown in Photograph 1-8, the reaction cell rinse
unit consists of a series of nozzles mounted above one
side of the reaction disk. The nozzles are connected
to vacuum lines and deionized water supply lines. The
reaction cell rinse unit performs the following
functions:
removes reaction mixture waste from reaction cells
rinses reaction cells with Multiclean
rinses reaction cells with DI water
aspirates rinse water from reaction cells
dispenses deionized water into reaction cells for
photometric cell blanking
aspirates water from reaction cells after
photometric cell blanking
dries inside walls of reaction cells prior to sample
dispense.
These functions occur as part of the instruments
routine operation. Each reaction cell is thoroughly
cleaned after final absorbance measurement of a
reaction mixture. The reaction cell integrity is
checked prior to reusing the cell for additional patient
samples.
1.6.2 Water Supply
The reaction cell rinse unit, shown in Photograph
1-8, uses the deionized water supply and the internal
vacuum system. The deionized water supply system
consists of the deionized water reservoir, located in
the rear of the analyzer, and a series of pumps and
electronic valves. Water is supplied to the reaction cell
rinse unit directly from the deionized water reservoir.
Water is automatically added to the reservoir when
necessary.
Water from this source is also supplied to the probe
and stirring unit rinse baths and to the reaction bath.
Photograph 1-8: Cell Rinse Unit
1.6.3 Vaccum System
The vacuum system consists of a vacuum pump,
vacuum reservoir, and sample waste container. The
vacuum system is used by the reaction cell rinse unit
to aspirate reaction mixture waste and reaction cell
rinse water. Reaction mixture waste drains into the
reaction waste container. Reaction cell rinse water is
removed from the instrument through the main drain
line. The vacuum system is located in the rear of the
analyzer and should be accessed only by your
Boehringer Mannheim representative.

The ISE (Ion Selective Electrode) System provides
the instrument with an electronic method for assaying
sodium, potassium, and chloride samples. As shown
in Figure 1-13, the ISE unit consists of: a sample
dilution vessel positioned above and to the left of the
sample disk (1); three pipettors (diluent dispense (2)),
internal reference dispense (3), and sipper (4); a
temperature controlled measuring assembly (three
measuring cartridges (5), and a reference cartridge
(6)); a vacuum system (to remove waste) (7); and a
degasser for KCl reagent and diluent (8). ISE reagents
are stored on top of the analyzer, to the rear of the
reaction disk.
1.7.2 ISE Calibration
Electrolyte calibration is based on a 3-point
measurement. This establishes that an acceptable
slope is generated when known samples (aqueous
standards) are analyzed with a serum-based
calibrator to compensate for aqueous-protein matrix
differences.
1.7.3 ISE Sample Aspiration
When electrolytes are requested, sample (15 L) is
aspirated by the sample probe, and the probe moves
to the ISE dilution vessel.
1.7.4 Sample Dispense and Dilution
Sample is dispensed, then ISE diluent (450 L) is
pipetted into the ISE dilution vessel. The ISE unit
dilutes the sample 1:31. The diluted sample flows
through the K
+
, Na
+
, and Cl
-
cartridges and stops so
that an electrical voltage can be measured. The
diluted sample is transported through the ISE
measuring cartridges by the "sipper" syringe or
pipettor.
1.7.5 ISE Measurement Flowpath
The diluted sample stops inside the three (sodium,
potassium, and chloride) measuring cartridges. After
equilibration, the electrical potential in the cartridges
is measured. This potential is compared to the
potential generated in a reference cartridge and the
signals are sent to a computer for calculation and
conversion to the result units indicative of the amount
of electrolyte in the sample. After measurement, the
diluted sample is drawn from the cartridges through
the sipper syringe to the waste container.
1.7.6 Rinse
After the residual sample is aspirated through the
vacuum nozzle, the inside of the dilution vessel is
rinsed with the internal reference solution.
1.7.7 Internal Reference Solution
Before each sample measurement, the internal
reference solution is aspirated into the measurement
flowpath and a single-point calibration is performed. If
this calibration does not compare to the previous
calibration within certain specifications, an alarm is
issued.

1.8 Operational Modes
1.8.1 Introduction
While the instrument is ON, it is in one of several
operational states, or modes. The current operational
mode appears at the upper left corner of the CRT, and
it reflects instrument activity. It is important to
consider the operational mode of the instrument
because certain functions may only be performed
while the instrument is in a specific mode. For
example, while the instrument is in the Operate mode,
maintenance functions cannot be requested.
An overview of the functions occurring in each mode is
provided in the following sections.
1.8.2 Initialization
The Initialization mode begins when the instrument is
powered ON. During this period, system parameter
information is automatically read into computer
memory from the System disk, and various
mechanisms are synchronized and readied to perform
functions as instructed by the operator. During
Initialization:
incubation bath water is exchanged
Hitergent is added to the bath
an air purge is performed
reagent registration takes place.
Computer-directed functions cannot be requested
during the Initialization mode.
When instrument parameters have been read into
instrument memory, the prompt JOB STATUS KEY?
appears on the CRT display, the instrument
completes the initialization process and enters the
Stand-by mode.
1.8.3 Stand-by
Stand-by is defined as a waiting mode; the instrument
is ready to perform functions, as requested. This is the
usual mode of the instrument, when not in Operate.
1.8.4 Parameter Check
Parameter Check is a momentary state which occurs
when the START key is pressed to place the
instrument into Operate. During this time, the
instrument computer checks internal parameters to
ensure that no abnormal conditions exist.
1.8.5 Reset
Immediately following Parameter Check, the
instrument enters Reset, during which it resets all
mechanisms to verify proper alignment and
synchronization prior to entering Operate. This state
is transitional and lasts less than one minute.
1.8.6 Operate
The Operate mode the state during which the
instrument processes samples. This includes the
time after the instrument has passed through
Parameter Check and Reset, when the instrument is
preparing reaction cells for sample dispense. After the
instrument has sampled and dispensed all specimens
programmed by the operator, it automatically leaves
the Operate mode and enters the Sampling Stop
mode.
1. INTRODUCTION
1.8 Operational Modes
1 34
1.8.7 Sampling Stop
Sampling Stop is the time period after the instrument
has sampled and dispensed all specimens
programmed, and before all reaction processing is
completed. When the instrument enters this mode, a
NO MORE SAMPLES TO PROCESS alarm is issued.
You may instruct the instrument to enter this state by
pressing the SAMPLING STOP key. This can be
done to stop sampling without terminating the reaction
processing already in progress.
The Sampling Stop mode is terminated after all results
have been printed and all reaction cells have been
cleaned by the cell rinse unit. At that time, the
instrument enters the Probe Wash mode.
1.8.8 Probe Wash
While the analyzer is performing the probe wash
following the end of a run, the status line displays
Probe Wash. The analyzer goes immediately to the
Stop mode after the probe wash is completed.
1.8.9 Stop
When the instrument completes all sample
processing and cell cleaning, it enters the Stop mode.
This mode is transitional, and remains in effect for
less than one minute. Following the Stop mode, the
instrument enters Stand-by.
1.8.10 Sleep
The instrument is put in the Sleep mode from the
STATUS SETTING screen. This mode is similar to
power OFFexcept that the CPU remains on.
1.8.11 Wake Up
When the time programmed from the STATUS
SETTING screen for the instrument to resume daily
activities or "wake up" arrives, the instrument enters
the Wake Up mode. In this mode the instrument
performs the same functions as during Initialization
(except program loading from the system disk) and
then enters Stand-by.
1.8.12 Stat Stand-by
When the Stat Reception Mode is requested from the
STATUS SETTING screen, the analyzer prepares 12
pre-blanked reaction cells so that they are ready for
immediate use. The analyzer automatically updates
the ISE calibration by running the internal standard
once every 10 minutes. In this way the analyzer can
process stat samples without the time delay
associated with the reset that occurs prior to routine
sample processing. After Stat Reception has been
requested, the analyzer remains in the Stat Stand-by
mode until a stat sample run is initiated. The analyzer
then returns to Stat Stand-by when the stat sample
run is completed. The analyzer remains in Stat
Stand-by until Stat Reception is cancelled, it is
placed in the Sleep mode, or is powered OFF.
1.8.13 Stat Operation
The analyzer enters this mode after a stat sample is
requested from the Stat Stand-by mode. When
processing is complete, the analyzer returns to the
Stat Stand-by mode.
1.8.14 Check
This mode indicates that a maintenance function is
being performed.

1.9 Operational Flow
1.9.1 Daily Check
The Daily Check entails procedures performed before
applying power to the instrument. If the instrument is
used 24 hours a day, these procedures should be
performed once every day, preferably before the bulk
of daily processing.
Has bath exchange been performed?
Is the water supply on (from external supply)?
Is the Hitergent supply sufficient?
Is the Multiclean supply sufficient?
Are the system and data disks in drives?
Is paper supply adequate?
Is sample waste container empty?
1.9.2 Power Up/Start Up
If not already ON, place on/off switch in "on"
position
Check the REAGENT STATUS screen for
sufficient reagent volume and outdated reagents
Perform data clear (if desired)
Perform patient test selection clear (if desired)
1.9.3 Calibrators and Controls

2.1 Daily Operating Check
2.1.1 Introduction
The following procedures are performed before the
instrument is powered ON. If the instrument is already
ON, these procedures can be performed any time
during a 24-hour period. These procedures are most
effective, however, when performed before the first
major run of the day.
2.1.2 Check Hitergent Supply
Hitergent is located in position 33 on each reaction
disk, as shown in Photograph 2-1. The reagent probes
automatically dispense a total of 6 mL of Hitergent into
the incubation bath during a bath exchange.
Hitergent helps to:
prevent air bubbles from adhering to the reaction
cells
improve electrical conductivity to make detection
of incubation bath water level easier
reduce bacteria development.
The alarm Replace Low Hitergent is issued when the
bottle needs to be replaced.

2.1.3 Check Waste Solution
Reservoir
The waste solution reservoir is located in the rear of the
analytical unit, as shown in Photograph 2-2. This five
liter bottle collects concentrated waste. The analyzer
issues the alarm Empty Waste Reservoir when the
waste solution reaches a predetermined level. If this
waste solution reservoir is full, dispose of contents
according to your facilitys protocol for biohazardous
waste disposal.
It is not necessary to check the waste solution
reservoir when a waste drain connection is provided.
2.1.4 Check Detergent Bottle
The NaOH detergent bottle is located in the front of the
instrument, as shown in Photograph 2-3. This
detergent, Multiclean, is used for rinsing reaction
cells. The bottle contains enough detergent for about
one week of operation, depending on your laboratorys
throughput.
No instrument alarm is issued when the detergent
bottle is empty.
2.1.5 Check Paper Supply
Check remaining paper in the instrument printer and
replace, if necessary. Make sure the printer power
switch is turned ON.
If your instrument is used on an around-the-clock
basis and is already powered ON, proceed to Section
2.2, Daily Start-Up. If the instrument has not been
powered ON, continue with the Check Floppy Disk
Placement procedure below.

2.1.6 Check Floppy Disk
Placement
The system disk and the data disk must be fully
inserted in the appropriate disk drives prior to
powering ON the instrument. The system disk should
be in the bottom drive (#1), which is located behind the
right front panel. The data disk should be in the top
drive (#2). Under normal conditions, it is not
necessary to remove either disk from its respective
disk drive, even when the instrument is OFF. If the
floppy disks are not in their drives, insert each into its
respective drive and push on the disk, as shown in
Photograph 2-4. If the disks need to be removed,
press in on the release button located on the bottom
right of each drive.
2.1.7 Check Water Supply
Make sure that the external water supply valve is
turned ON.
2.1.8 Main Circuit Breaker
The main circuit breaker, shown in Photograph 2-5, is
positioned on the right side instrument cover. This
breaker, which controls power supplied to the reagent
refrigerator, must be in the ON position whenever
reagents are stored on the instrument.

2.2 Daily Start-Up
2.2.1 Introduction
The automated activation procedures require minimal
operator involvement. The following paragraphs
present these procedures in the most time-efficient
sequence. Do not omit any of the described
procedures from your daily routine.
2.2.2 Operational Precautions
While the analyzer is in operation, make sure these
precautions are followed:
Keep the top cover of the analyzer closed.
Do not replace samples while the sample disk is
rotating.
Avoid touching the sample probe, reagent probes,
stirring paddles, and other moving parts.
Do not remove or replace the cover over the sample
disk inner ring.
Do not remove or replace the reagent disk covers.
Do not place reagent or sample containers on the
cover of the analyzer.
2.2.3 Initialization Mode
The Initialization mode is indicated by the status line
displayed at the top of the CRT. During Initialization,
several functions occur automatically. These
functions are as follows:
Reads information from the system disk into
memory
Reaction bath water exchange
Air Purge of sample and reagent pipettor pathway
Mechanical reset
ISE prime
Reagent bar code registration.
While these procedures are being performed
automatically by the instrument, calibrators and
control products can be prepared. A brief explanation
of the above procedures is given below.
Reads System Disk
Information from the floppy system disk is read into
instrument memory.
Reaction Bath Water Exchange
The reaction bath water is exchanged during the
Initialization mode. Hitergent (6 mL) is added
automatically to the water bath when it fills. This
exchange replenishes evaporated water and brings
the concentration of Hitergent to a specified level. The
bath exchange also minimizes contamination of the
optimally-heated water.
2. OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
2.2 Daily Start-Up
2 6
Air Purge (Sample and Reagent Pipettor)
This procedure ensures that no air is in the tubing
between the probes and their respective pipettors. Air
in the pipettor lines can result in imprecise pipetting.
This procedure replaces the water in the line with
freshly degassed water and takes approximately one
minute to complete. This procedure does not purge
the ISE System pipettors.
Reagent Bar Code Registration
All Boehringer Mannheim reagent bottles used with
the Boehringer Mannheim/Hitachi 911 Analyzer are
labeled with a bar code that contains information
concerning the reagent. All reagent bar codes from
bottles on both reagent disks are read during the
Initialization mode. Information on up to 200 bottles is
stored in CRAM and accessed through the REAGENT
STATUS screen.
Mechanical Reset
All mechanical parts including the sample probe,
reagent probes, sample disk, reagent disks, reaction
disk and stirrers are reset to their home positions.
ISE Prime
An ISE prime is performed. This clears the air from the
ISE pipetting system.
2.2.4 Reconstitute Calibrators and
Controls
Reconstitute all calibrator and control materials
according to the instructions provided with each box
of materials. Required calibration or control materials
can be obtained from Boehringer Mannheim.
Additional controls may be run at the discretion of the
operator. The instrument computer can track up to
eight different quality control materials.
Quality control products are used to verify calibration
as well as the precision and accuracy of the
instrument. Controls should be performed after every
calibration, or at least once every 24 hours, whichever
comes first. Additional control runs should be
established by your laboratory, based upon your own
needs.
2.2.5 Reagent Status Check
1 If the instrument has just been turned ON, proceed
when the analyzer status line reaches Stand-by.
2 Press ROUTINE to display the ROUTINE JOB
MENU. Press 1 ENTER to display the REAGENT
STATUS screen shown in Figure 2-1.
3 Reagent bar codes are read automatically during
the Initialization mode, and REAGENT STATUS
screen updates accordingly. This is called reagent
registration. As Figure 2-1 illustrates, a forward
slash through a reagent test key on the CRTs
keyboard matrix indicates that not all reagents are
on board the analyzer for that test. A back slash
indicates that the test has been masked on the
START CONDITIONS screen.

removed and replaced on the reagent disks, the
analyzer automatically performs a reagent registration
to verify current reagent placements.
2.2.6 Photometer Check
A photometer check procedure verifies that the
photometer lamp output remains at an acceptable
level. This procedure assumes that the following have
been performed correctly:
reaction cells replaced every month
reaction bath windows cleaned monthly

To perform a photometer check:
1 Press MAINTENANCE to di spl ay the
MAINTENANCE JOB menu.
2 Press 1 ENTER to display the ANALYZER
MAINTENANCE screen.
3 Move the cursor to the Photometer Check field.
4 Press 1 (Start) ENTER to initiate a photometer
check.
During this procedure, the instrument computer
performs a check of the photometer and light path,
which takes approximately one minute. Take this time
to prepare calibrators, controls, or reagents, as
needed.
Figure 2-3: Photometer Check Report
2.2 Daily Start-Up
2. OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Compare the current data values, as shown in Figure
2-3, with the previous data values. These values
should show a consistent, gradual increase. Based
upon this gradual increase, when any photometer
check value exceeds 13000, the photometer lamp
must be replaced. A sudden increase from one day to
the next may indicate something other than a
photometer lamp problem (example: no Hitergent in
bath).
2.2.7 Test Specific Information
Information specific to a particular chemistry test can
be found in the BM chemistry application sheet for
that method.
2.2.8 Demographic Considerations
Expected values or patient reference intervals are
affected by age, sex, diet, geographical location, and
other factors. Each laboratory should establish its
own ranges for each method based upon the specific
patient population of the area.

2.3 Calibration
2.3.1 Overview
To ensure proper operation of your 911 analyzer, each
Boehringer Mannheim assay must be calibrated at
the interval specified on its application sheet. For
most BM chemistries, these calibration intervals are
programmed as part of the Chemistry Parameters.
The 911 automatically updates calibrations at the
required time when the proper calibrators are placed
on the sample disk. In addition, you may program
tests to be calibrated in a Start Up or Repeat
calibration mode.
For most BM chemistries, calibrations necessary
due to a bottle change or lot change of reagent are
carried out automatically when the proper calibrators
are placed on the sample disk.
2.3.2 Calibration Procedure
Press ROUTINE, followed by 2 ENTER, to display the
CALIBRATION TEST SELECTION screen shown in
Figure 2-4.
Figure 2-4: CALIBRATION TEST
SELECTION - - page 1
Press the GUIDANCE key to view the calibration Time
Out Status information.
Figure 2-5: CALIBRATION TEST

To print the calibrator load list:
1 Move the cursor to the second entry of the
Calibration List field.
2 Enter the time interval (in hours) for which you want
a time out calibrator load list printed. Return the
cursor to the first entry of the Calibration List field
and press 3 ENTER. The load list of all calibrators
needed for scheduled calibrations during the
specified time interval prints out.
3 Use this list to verify that all needed calibrators are
on board the analyzer in the proper positions.

Before You Start the Analysis:
If you store all specimen results on the data
disk for later retrieval, you must ensure that
each sequence number is used only once on
any data disk. To ensure this, replace the data
disk when the sequence number reaches 800.
If you do not want to retrieve results, you may
clear the data disk. In this case, you must
ensure that no more than 800 routine
specimens are run.
WARNING
When the STAT sequence number reaches 200, clear
all STAT results from the data disk before you request
more STATs. This prevents an accidental merge of the
old data on the data disk with the new data.
11 Clear Results: This procedure clears all routine,
and Stat results, as well as all daily QC results. If
you do not want to clear your daily QC, clear the
routine, and STAT results individually.
To clear the data disk, advance the cursor to Clear
Results, then:
Press 4 ENTER (All). (Or press the key that
corresponds to the type of data to be cleared:
1: Routine 2: Stat, 3: Control.)
When you clear all results, the start sample
number of Stat and control samples are reset
to 1. You also may select a range of sample
data to clear. Type in the beginning sample
number and press ENTER. Type in the ending
sample number and press ENTER. Ranges for
routine samples are 1-800, Stat samples are 1-

2.11 Within-Run Recalibration
2.11.1 Introduction
If any test fails calibration, or if the controls run
following calibration are out of range, the test can be
recalibrated while the instrument is in the Operate
mode.
When an assay calibration fails, subsequent patient
and QC results are calculated from the last
successful calibration for that assay. All of these
patient results are flagged. The patient report will have
a CALIB! alarm and the DATA REVIEW and REAL
TIME DATA MONITOR screens will display ! to flag
the results until a successful calibration is
completed.
Do not confuse this alarm with the CALIB alert on the
Calibration Monitor report. The CALIB on the
Calibration Monitor report indicates that the last
calibration was different from the previous calibration.
As long as the QC results calculated from the
calibration with the CALIB alert on the Calibration
Monitor report are within range, then the calibration is
fine.
2.11.2 Procedure
Within-run recalibration is performed as follows:
1 Before requesting recalibration, determine why
the original calibration failed for the specified test.
If necessary, consult Chapter 4, Troubleshooting,
to determine the nature of the problem.
2 After the situation responsible for the failed
calibration is corrected, press ROUTINE, then 2
ENTER to display the CALIBRATION TEST
SELECTION screen.
3 Mode: Press 2 (Repeat Calib.) ENTER. Verify
that the 911 has automatically programmed the
test for a Repeat Calibration. If the test is not
programmed, proceed with step 4. If the test is
programmed, proceed with step 6.
4 Type: Select the necessary calibration method
(Blank, 2 Point, Full, or Span).
5 Tests: Press the test selection key to select the
appropriate tests. Selected tests are highlighted in
reverse video.
6 Make certain that sample cups containing
sufficient quantities of the required calibrators and
controls are in their assigned positions on the
sample disk.
7 Press ROUTINE 4 ENTER to call up the START
CONDITIONS screen.
8 Repeat Calibration: Press 1 (On) ENTER. The
calibrators are sampled immediately following the
specimen for which the instrument is currently
blanking cells.
2.11.3 Rerun Calibration
If a rerun calibration is requested, controls are run
immediately following for those tests that were
recalibrated, provided the appropriate control test
selections are made and the control interval on
CHEMISTRY PARAMETERS is > 0.

2.13 Quality Control
Procedures
2.13.1 Daily QC Results
Daily quality control results can be viewed through the
REAL TIME QC, INDIVIDUAL QC MONITOR,
INDIVIDUAL QC LIST, AND INDIVIDUAL QC CHART
screens.
During routine operation, the instrument compares
paired (X) and (Y) control values against the mean and
SD entered for each control on the REAL TIME QC
screen. The instrument uses specific guidelines
(modified Westgard Rules or Multi-Rule Shewhart)
selected by the operator (explained in Section 5.34) to
evaluate each set of control results.
Each set of control results is either acceptable or
exhibits a random, system, or indeterminate error. If
a random, systematic, or indeterminate alarm is
issued, an alarm message appears on the
OPERATION MONITOR screen, and the appropriate
data alarm appears next to the affected test on the
result printout and on the INDIVIDUAL QC MONITOR
screen.
The REAL TIME QC screen judges quality control
results by a multi-rule Shewhart method. Random,
systematic, or indeterminate QC errors are flagged on
the REAL TIME QC screen. In addition, an audible
alarm is issued when an error of this type is detected.
Consult these screens during a chemistry run to
ensure that patient results are properly controlled.

You can direct the instrument to print or not to print
patient results as they become available. Real Time
printing of patient results is controlled through the
START CONDITIONS screen. If you request that
results be printed, the instrument can be directed to
print results in report format (chartable report) or short
format (condensed report).
The report format is defined by the operator through the
REPORT FORMAT screen, which is located in the
PARAMETER JOB.
All test results are stored on the data disk. If the
instrument is directed not to print results in real time,
you can print patient reports at a later time through the
DATA REVIEW screen.
You can edit rerun test results into the original patient
file and print the complete report through the DATA
REVIEW screen.
You can edit test results obtained on a separate
instrument into the patient file and print the complete
report through the DATA REVIEW screen.

2.16 Overview
2.16.1 Introduction
Part B of Chapter 2 outlines the CRT screens on your
analyzer. An example and a brief description of each
screen are included. For screens used to process
routine samples, operating procedures are found in
Part A of this chapter, Operating Instructions. Non-
routine procedures, or procedures required for initial
analyzer set-up, are included in Part B.
Before discussing specific screens and how to use
them, some general instructions are necessary.
These instructions apply to all 911 Analyzer CRT
screens. The screen representations shown in this
chapter and throughout this manual are for illustrative
purposes only. The data shown may not accuratly
reflect normal, day-to-day operation of the analyzer.
2.16.2 Entry Fields
Entry fields are areas where you enter information. An
entry field is active when the cursor is shown in the field
(in reverse video), and the appropriate entry prompts
are displayed. Some data may not reflect normal day-
to-day operation of the analyzer. You can move the
cursor to activate the entry fields by pressing the arrow
keys, which are the four keys located to the left of the
numeric keypad.
2.16.3 Field and Prompt Explanations
Throughout the remainder of this chapter each entry
field and related screen prompts are listed in the
following format:
Entry Field Name [ ] Highlighted
area indicates
Related Screen Prompts position of
cursor.
2.16.4 Entry Prompts
At the bottom of each screen is an entry prompt. In
this area, the software instructs you as to what type
of information to enter, and what format to use when
entering that information. This information is specific
to the entry field where the cursor is positioned. As
you type your entry, it appears in the entry field.
Before you press ENTER, look at the entry to be sure
it is correct. NOTE: ENTER must be pressed after the
entry is completed to process each keyboard entry.
If the message INPUT ERROR appears at the bottom
of the screen, an entry error has occurred.
2.16.5 How to Clear Entry Errors
There are two types of entry errors:
Input errors occur when the instrument status does
not permit the desired entry. (Example: trying to
enter 7 when only 1 - 6 is allowed.)
To correct input errors:
1 Press the CANCEL key to clear.
2 Re-enter the appropriate information after the
instrument has reached the appropriate status.
2.16 Overview

THEO
2 42
When a required reagent or diluent for a specific
chemistry or wash solution (for a probe wash) is not
present on the analyzer, the corresponding test key on
the keyboard matrix is highlighted with a slash.
NOTE
The keyboard matrix indicator for an operator initiated
masking is a reverse slash, as shown:
The test key is highlighted with a slash when:
the reagent bottle is not present on the analyzer
the reagent bar code reader cannot read the bar
code
less than 10 tests remain in the bottle at the
beginning of a run.
When the test key is highlighted with a slash, the
analyzer automatically masks that chemistry and will
not process any tests selected for that chemistry.
2.19.4 REAGENT STATUS Screen
Fields and Prompts - - Page 1
Each REAGENT STATUS screen field and prompt is
explained below.
Registration [ ]
Choose 1: Read Reagent Barcodes 2: Read Barcodes
& Check Level : ENTER
Use this field to specify the type of reagent
registration carried out by the analyzer. A bar code
registration occurs automatically when: the reagent
disk lid is removed and replaced, the analyzer is
powered ON, or the analyzer performs Wake-Up
TM
.
Choosing 1: Read Reagent Barcodes instructs the
analyzer to read the reagent bottle bar codes only.
This takes 1.5 minutes. Choosing 2: Read Barcodes
& Check Level registers both the contents of the bar
code and the reagent volume. This takes 2.5 minute.
The reagent volume is measured by the reagent probe
through liquid level detection. The analyzer
automatically updates the reagent level when the
reagent probe enters the bottle for the first time. Enter
the proper choice and press ENTER.
Manual Set [ ] [ ] [ ]
[ ] [ ] [ ]
Use the manual set fields to manually enter
information from a reagent bar code. This may be
used in the event that a bar code cannot be registered

entered.
Three types of reagent bar code labels may be entered
manually:
Full bar codeContains all 21 digits of the bar code
information.
Partial bar codeContains partial bar code
information.
Minimal bar codeContains no information about
the reagent, but allows the bottle to be placed on
the analyzer (for open system applications).
Depending on the type of bar code label, different
manual set fields are used to enter the information.
Fields 1, 2, and 3 are entered for full or partial bar
codes. All fields, with the exception of Field 3, are

entered.
When a minimal bar code is located on a reagent
disk in a posi ti on that has ful l bar code
information manually entered.
Type
This column displays the type of reagent in the bottles
on the reagent disks. There are six reagent types:
DIL, R1, R2, R3, R4, and W. R1 indicates that the
reagent is dispensed 10 seconds after sample
dispense. R2 indicates that the reagent is dispensed
1.5 minutes after sample dispense. R3 indicates that
the reagent is dispensed 5 minutes after sample
dispense. T4 indicates that the reagent is dispensed
10 minutes after sample dispense. The reagent type is
highlighted with yellow when there are fewer tests
remaining in the reagent bottle than are specified in the
Reagent Check Level field on the SYSTEM
PARAMETERS screen. The reagent type is
highlighted in red when there are fewer than 10 tests
remaining in the bottle. For a diluent or wash, the type
is highlighted in yellow when > 10 mL of reagent
remain, red when < 1 mL of reagent remains. If a
reagent is not physically in the reagent disk or if the bar
code fails to register, only Type is displayed and the
subsequent items are blank. If either of these
situations occur, the analyzer automatically masks
the test. The keyboard matrix on page 1 of the
REAGENT STATUS screen is highlighted with a slash
for that test.
NOTE
Changing the Data Mode field on the CHEMISTRY
PARAMETERS screen from On Board to Manual will
delete the test from this list. Only active channels are
displayed.
Pos.
This column displays the disk number and the disk
position number where each reagent is located. The
first digit indicates the disk number and the second
two digits indicate the position number. An asterisk (*)
following the position column indicates bar code
information has been manually entered. An
exclamation point (!) following the position column
indicates full bar code information registered by the
reagent bar code reader has replaced manually-
entered reagent information. The manually-entered
test is automatically masked in this case because the
analyzer does not know where the reagent
is located.
When multiple bottles of reagent are registered for any
type, the disk number for the smallest position number
is displayed first. Disk numbers and position numbers
are displayed in numerical order for each type. If the
reagent type has not been placed in the appropriate
reagent disk, the reagent disk number is highlighted in
yellow and the Check (R1 or R2) Position and App
Code alarms appear on the OPERATION MONITOR
screen.
Tests
This column displays the number of tests remaining
for each reagent. If the bar code is not registered, the
column remains blank until a level registration is
performed or the bottle is used for the first time. When
the number of remaining tests is less than 10, the test
is highlighted in red. If the number of tests remaining
is greater than 1000, then 990 will be displayed. The
number is truncated to the lowest ten. If the number
of tests remaining is 29, for example, then the number
displayed will be 20. If the number of remaining tests
falls below 10 during a run, the analyzer continues to
perform that test, but the test is masked at the
beginning of the next run if the number of tests
remaining reaches zero and a second bottle of
reagent is not on board. If a second bottle of reagent
is on board, automatic changeover occures. The
Tests column is highlighted in red when the bottle is
empty.

Size
This column displays the bottle size for each reagent:
S (20 mL), M (50 mL), or L (100 mL). This information
appears for all bar code types.
Stab.
This column displays the remaining working solution
stability in days for each reagent as programmed on
the CHEMISTRY PARAMETERS screen. When a full
bar code label is used, the working solution stability
is displayed. If partial bar code information or minimal
bar code information is entered, the space remains
blank. The working solution stability is counted down
by the analyzers internal clock. When the working
solution stability is zero (0), the Stab. column is
highlighted in red. Working solution stability is
tracked only when a bottle number is assigned to the
reagent bottle. If CHEMISTRY PARAMETERS is
programmed as 0, then the display remains blank.
Exp. Wk
This column displays the expiration week for the lot of
reagent. The first two digits indicate the year of
expiration and the second two digits indicate the week
of expiration (93 - 52). When the reagent has expired,
the date is highlighted in red.
Lot No.
This column displays the lot number for each reagent.
This information appears for partial and full bar codes
only.
App Code
This column displays the application code for each
reagent. For all BM reagents, the bottle code
corresponds to the application code for the reagent.
This code links the reagent to the chemistry
parameters needed to perform the test and calculate
results. For a complete list of all BM assigned
application codes, refer to the BM/Hitachi 911

NOTE
The analyzer does not automatically mask a test when
the reagent expires. All information on the REAGENT

Test Selection
2.20.1 Introduction
The CALIBRATION TEST SELECTION screen is
used to designate which tests are to be calibrated
during start-up or repeat calibration. Automatic
calibration, or time out, is carried out according to the
CHEMISTRY PARAMETERS, no matter what is
selected on this screen.
The CALIBRATION TEST SELECTION screen has
two pages. Page 1 is used to enter calibration test
selections. Page 2 lists the Time-Out calibration
status and request the Calibrator Load List.
The time out calibration internal clock for a specific
assay is automatically reset when a successful
calibration is performed. The time out calibration
internal clock of any assay is not reset when a
calibration fails. As a result, failed calibrations will
automatically be reinitiated at the beginning of the
next run when the run is started for the Stand-by
mode. In the event of a failed calibration, the analyzer
reverts to the last succesful calibration to evaluate
patient data.

while the instrument is in any operational mode.
QC test selections are performed for only those
tests that were calibrated. A test is automatically
programmed for repeat calibration when a
calibration fails and is removed from the repeat
calibration list once a successful calibration is
performed.
Type [ ]
Choose Calibration Type 1 : Blank 2 : Span 3 : 2Point
4 : Full : ENTER
Use this field to select the calibration type. For all BM
chemistries, the recommended calibration type or
method is included as part of the chemistry
parameters. There are four calibration types:
BLANK uses the blank (STD (1)) only. For ISEs,
this runs the compensator.
2 POINT uses the blank calibrator and the span
calibrator. For ISEs, this runs the low and high
calibrators only.
FULL uses all programmed calibrators including
the blank. Because three standards can be
used, this type is for multipoint calibrations. Full
calibration must be selected to run the
compensator, low, and high ISE calibration.
SPAN uses one specified calibrator other than the
blank. Span calibration cannot be selected for
ISEs.
Chemistry calibration may require a blank only
(generally fixed K-factor assays), blank and calibrator
(mostly endpoint assays), or blank and multiple
standards (generally nonlinear assays). Select the
appropriate calibration type and press ENTER.

2.27.1 Introduction
The STATUS SETTING screen enables you to select
the automatic Wake-Up
TM
function. The automatic
Wake-Up function instructs the analyzer to go through
the same procedures as the Initialization Mode
(except program loading from the system disk) at a
specified time. This reduces start-up time. During
Wake-Up execution, the lamp turns on, the monitor
screen brightens, and all mechanical parts reset. In
addition, reagent registration, water bath exchange,
ISE prime, and an air purge are automatically
performed. Upon completion of the Wake-Up function,
the instrument goes to Stand-by and remains on the
STATUS SETTING screen. You also can select Stat
reception execution from this screen.

2.31.1 Introduction
REAL TIME QC displays a twin plot graph of daily
qual i ty control data. Al l QC data
are checked by a multi-rule Shewhart method. When
a random, systematic, or indeterminate QC error is
detected, an alarm is issued. Using this display
enables you to demonstrate that all reported results
are properly controlled. All daily QC results are stored
in C-RAM.
The REAL TIME QC display must be programmed with
two controls for each chemistry assay. Each time
these controls are run, the results are compared
against their respective mean (X) and standard
deviation (SD) as programmed from the CONTROL
VALUE SETTING screen. Refer to Section 2.51 for
more information.
Each pair of control values (X) and (Y) is plotted on the
REAL TIME QC graph. You must select the rules for
judging QC results. If no rules are selected in the Rule
Select Entry field, no Random, Systematic, or
Indeterminate errors are displayed.

is possible in two ways: by accumulating the
individual QC data (M-R) or by accumulating a chosen
specific measured data point (X-R). Use the SYSTEM
PARAMETERS screen to select the method of data
accumulation. The analyzer must be in Stand-by.
M-R transfers a mean value. This can be a weighted
mean, according to the number of points used to
calculate the mean, or it can be a non-weighted mean.
Use the SYSTEM PARAMETERS screen to specify
the type of mean used in accumulation.
X-R transfers only one data point. This can be a non-
weighted mean value of all individual data points or one
individual data point.

The CUMULATIVE QC CHART screen graphically
displays the control data measured in the previous 31
accumulations for a specified test.
Two graphs are displayed for each control level. On the
upper graph, the outer lines represent 3 SD, the inner
lines represent 2 SD, and the center line represents
the target mean value. This reflects the accuracy of
the 911 analyzer.
The lower graph shows the range on individual results
in each accumulation. The bottom line represents
zero, or no deviation. The center line is 3X the target
and the top line is 6X the target SD. This reflects the
precision of the 911 analyzer.

Reaction Monitor
2.39.1 Introduction
The REACTION MONITOR display enables you to
view (in graph form) photometric absorbance vs. time
for the 360 most recent photometric tests, as well as
the 80 most recent standards and the 80 most recent
QC tests.
Absorbance (as Abs x 10
4
) is displayed on the ordinate
(Y-axis) and measure points for the time of reaction is
displayed on the abscissa (X-axis). The scale of the
X-axis depends on the reaction time. If the absorbance
data is higher than the upper limit specified, it is plotted
at the upper limit. If it is lower than the lower limit
specified (0 on the example below), it is plotted at the
lower limit. The data at measurement point number
one are plotted on the Y-axis.
Reaction monitor information is stored in non-battery
backed CRAM and is cleared when the instrument is
powered down. The number of read points displayed
on the reaction monitor graph is related to the
information programmed in CHEMISTRY
PARAMETERS.

2.45.1 Introduction
The CHEMISTRY PARAMETERS display enables
you to view parameters for each chemistry
programmed on the analyzer. You may modify some
of these parameters. The screen has two pages that
may be viewed alternately by pressing the GUIDANCE
key.
Page 1 of the display contains user-definable
parameters such as Test Name and Expected
Values. Page 2 contains test-specific parameters
such as Wavelengths and Reagent volumes. Page 1
parameters may be entered for all available
chemistries, test (application) codes 1 - 400. Most
page 2 parameters may be entered for test codes 301
- 400 only, which correspond to non-BM methods.
Automatic calibration information may be changed for
application codes 1 - 300 only.
For test codes 1 - 300, all photometric chemistry
parameters are read from a parameter disk through the
CHANNEL ASSIGNMENT screen. (ISE parameters
are entered manually during your analyzer
installation.) Individual entries for each field are found
on the application sheets for each chemistry.
Set points for calibrator materials are found on the
package inserts and are entered on this screen.

NOTE
Throughput on your analyzer is affected by the number
of chemistries programmed for extra cell and probe
washes. If you have more than one causal chemistry
that interferes with a particular chemistry, you must
program a probe wash for each of the causal
chemistries. For more details consult your local BM
representative.
When both the probe wash and cell wash functions are
utilized, the cell wash function takes priority over the
probe wash. If the cell wash function timing is such
that it occurs simultaneously with ISE sampling, the
cell wash function occurs before the ISE sampling
cycle begins.

2.61.4 Explanation of the Reagent
Status Report
ASSAY
The abbreviated test name for each chemistry is
printed in this column. Only tests that are currently
on the analyzer are listed. A question mark (?) in this
column indicates parameters for this application code
are not entered.
TYPE
The reagent type: R1, R2, R3, R4, diluent, or wash
solution is printed in this column. An exclamation (!)
after this column indicates that fewer tests remain
than indicated in the Reagent Level Check field on the
SYSTEM PARAMETERS screen. (For diluents and
wash solutions less than 10 mL remains.) A question
mark (?) indicates that fewer than 10 tests remain in
the bottle. (For diluents and wash solutions, less than
1 mL remains.)
POS.
This column indicates which position the reagent
occupies on the analyzer. The first number indicates
whether the reagent is located on reagent disk 1 or
reagent disk 2. The second number indicates the
reagent disk position number 1 - 32. An asterisk (*)
following the disk position number indicates the
information is for a manually entered reagent. An
exclamation mark (!) following the disk position
number indicates that a manually entered reagent
was programmed to a position containing a full bar-
coded reagent. A question mark (?) following the disk
position number indicates that a bottle has been
placed on the wrong disk.
TESTS
This column lists the number of tests remaining for
each reagent in units of 10 tests. This number is
truncated to the lowest 10. For diluents and wash
solutions this number is mL remaining and is not
truncated.
SIZE
This column indicates the bottle size S (20 mL), M (50
mL), or L (100 mL) for each reagent.
LOT NO.
This column lists the lot number for each reagent.
SEQ. NO.
This column indicates the bottle number for the
reagent.
APP CODE
This column lists the application code for each
reagent.
EXP. WK
This column indicates the year and week the reagent
expires.

This column lists the electromotive force (EMF) or
electrical potential generated by the internal
reference solution at the specified electrolyte
cartridge. The value printed is in millivolts (mV).
S1 EMF
This column lists the electrical potential (mV)
generated by the LOW standard at the specified
electrolyte cartridge.

SLOPE
This column lists the sensitivity of the specified
electrolyte cartridge. The slope should gradually
decrease with time, reflecting the aging of
the cartridge.
When the slope falls outside of the optimal slope
range values as presented below, an ISE SLOPE
warning is issued. The SLOPE warning is issued if the
slope falls between the optimal and critical ranges.
When a SLOPE warning is seen, check the control
values. If the controls are within range, continue
operation until the next convenient time to replace the
cartridge.
When an ISE SLOPE ERROR:REPLACE
CARTRIDE alarm is seen, replace the cartridge
immediately and recalibrate.

NOTE
For rate chemistries, the Calibration Trace data for
STD 1 absorbance values may appear to be different
than the Calibration Monitor data for STD 1 because
the Calibration Trace absorbance data is taken from
the first photometric measurement point (sample and
reagent dispensed at R1 timing) at the primary
wavelength only.
DATA ALARMS
If a CALIB alarm occurs, an asterisk (*) is printed to
the right of the absorbance measurement for
photometric tests. For ISEs this indicates a failed
calibration.

2.76.4 Explanation of the Photometer
Check Report
When performing the Photometer Check, the
instrument fills two reaction cells (1 and 119) with
deionized water and rotates them through the
photometer lightpath. The absorbance of both cells is
determined at each of the 12 available wavelengths,
and their mean absorbance (at each wavelength) is
printed. "WV1 (secondary)" and "WV2 (primary)"
refer to the internal processing of absorbance data by
the instrument. The results at any given wavelength
should be similar when comparing WV1 and WV2.

RESULTS
Previous and current photometer check results are
printed under the appropriate heading. These are used
for comparison purposes; values should increase
gradually from previous to current. If a sudden
increase in values is observed, it must be investigated.
If any current value exceeds 13,000, the photometer
lamp must be replaced, a cell blank performed, and all
channels must be recalibrated. Factors affecting the
Photometer Check results include:
reaction bath contents (insufficient Hitergent, dirt
in bath water)
clean reaction cells (must be replaced monthly)
photometer lamp.

2.82 Cumulative Alarm Trace
2.82.1 Introduction
The Cumulative Alarm Trace report includes all
instrument alarms that have occurred during the most
recent 256 days. One day is determined as the period
of time from power up to power down.
Alarm or retry information is printed on this display. A
retry occurs when the instrument senses an apparent
alarm condition, then rechecks, or "retries", the
sensor several times before issuing an alarm.

3.1 Maintenance Procedures
Overview
3.1.1 Introduction
The following maintenance procedures are written for
an operator who attended to a BM-technical customer
training with a working knowledge of all instrument
mechanical functions, CRT displays and software
functions. The instrument must be provided with
proper care and maintenance to ensure consistent
and accurate functioning.
3.1.2 How To Use This Chapter
Each maintenance procedure is divided into two parts:
the Introduction and the Procedure.
The Introduction provides important information about
the procedure, which includes:
materials required
time required
precautions.
The Procedure gives step-by-step directions for
performing the required maintenance function. This
part frequently is divided into smaller procedure
blocks to help you organize your approach to
maintenance.
3.1.3 Replacement Parts
A replacement part may be needed for a specific
maintenance procedure.
For most efficient use of time, gather all required
materials corresponding to part- or Id.-Nr. before
starting a maintenance procedure.
3.1.4 Required Cleaning Solutions
In order to perform some of the maintenance
procedures contained in this chapter, you must
prepare the specified cleaning solutions. Brief
preparation instructions for the required cleaning
solutions are included below:
2% Hitergent
In a clean container (plastic or glass) that can be
used to store the solution, mix 98 parts deionized
water with 2 parts concentrated Hitergent. Label
the container 2% Hitergent.
0.525% Sodium Hypochlorite
In a clean container (plastic or glass) that can be
used to store the solution, prepare 90 parts
deionized water with 10 parts undiluted 5.25%
sodium hypochlorite. Once diluted this solution
should be used completely. Do not store, longer
than 1 week (cool). Old diluted solution can
contaminate instead of clean! Label the container
0.525% Sodium Hypochlorite.
1 N NaOH
Multiclean
Automatic cleaning solution, (1 N NaOH), is used
during automatic cleaning procedures.

3.2 Working Information
3.2.1 Introduction
The WORKING INFORMATION screen displays a list
of analyzer parts that require routine maintenance.
The screen shows the date each maintenance
procedure was last performed. This screen is an on-
board maintenance log for your system.
The analyzer contains an internal timer for
maintenance that counts the appropriate time interval
down during operation and power ON. Two question
marks (??) prior to the date displayed indicate the
date for scheduled maintenance is approaching and
you should prepare to perform that maintenance
function. (80% of the maintenance time has
elapsed.) Two exclamation marks (!!) prior to the date
indicate the date for scheduled maintenance is due or
overdue and the maintenance function should be
performed as soon as possible.
On the following page is a time table showing when the
Working Information screen will display the caution
(??) and over (!!) indicators for each maintenance
function shown on the screen below.
3.2.2 Working Information Display
To display the WORKING INFORMATION screen, as
shown in Figure 3-1, press MAINTENANCE, followed
by 4 ENTER.
Figure 3-1: Working Information
After performing any maintenance function, move the
cursor to the proper field on the WORKING
INFORMATION screen and press 1 ENTER to reset
the internal timer to the current date as shown on the
Analyzer Status line.

3.7 Check Reaction Cell
Condition
3.7.1 Introduction
During operation of the Analyzer the Cell blank quality
is automatically checked by comparison against
previous data. The operator should perform the
following actions to ensure that the "baseline" cell
blank datas stored in the instrument memory is
updated.
Weekly
Perform Cell blank procedure, this will update and
printout cell blank data for each cuvette.
Using the printout-data check that values for the 1
st
cell are < 13000 and that for all other cells the
difference does not exceed 800 from the 1
st
cell. If
these limits are exceeded the cells should be cleaned
using cell cleaning program and then cell blank should
be repeated. If limits are still exceeded the cells
should be exchanged.
Monthly
Cells should be exchanged monthly to ensure
continued good performance. Please note that it is
possible that slight scattering of the cells can occur
over this time (e.g. scratches) which will not
necessarily give poor cell blank values but can
increase the likelihood of carryover of reaction
contents.
Materials Required:
If reaction cell cleaning is required:
2% Hitergent solution
Deionized water

3.14 Replace Pipettor Seals
3.14.1 Introduction
Pipettor seals should be replaced every 500 hours of
operation. Based on the analyzer working 8 hours per
day, 5 days per week this frequency is every three
months. If your analyzers work load is higher, pipettor
seals may require more frequent replacement.
This procedure is divided into seven parts:
disassemble pipettor
expose pipettor seal
replace sample pipettor seal
replace reagent pipettor seal (includes ISE
pipettors)
reassemble pipettor
perform an air purge
ISE prime.
Operator time: Approximately 15 minutes.
Instrument time: Approximately 5 minutes.
Precautions: The instrument must be in
Stand-by or OFF.
Do not crimp (bend) pipettor
tubing.
Perform the enti re seal
replacement procedure on
one pipettor put clean paper
on to a table to work on before
proceeding to the next.
Wear rubber gloves when
handling pipettor components
and tubi ng to assi st i n
preventing the introduction of
contaminants into the system.

3.20.1 Introduction
The electrical response of each measuring cartridge
decreases gradually with the length of time it is in use,
and is dependent upon proper maintenance. An ISE
cartridge must be replaced when its slope falls outside
of the critical slope values:
When the slope is less than the optimal values, an
ISE Slope Warning alarm is issued. This alarm alerts
you that a replacement cartridge is needed. The
cartridge that caused the alarm may continue to be
used if all controls are still in range. If any controls
are out of range, or the slope falls outside the critical
value, the cartridge must be replaced. An ISE Slope
Error: Replace Cart. alarm is issued when the values
fall below the critical slope.
This procedure is divided into five parts:
