Brief description
In the end of August 2017 software version 2.5.0h will be available. The new software will include a lot of
new features as well as bug fixing. Together with the software we will issue a new setting database
version 4.0. The setting update is not compatible with the old software 1.9.0. It is mandatory to update the
software to 2.5.0h in order to use the new settings version 4.0.

A. Setting update
Compared to the previous database following settings have been changed:
alpha-AMYLASE liquicolor : Calibration stability 21 days
auto-BILIRUBIN-D liquicolor : Calibration stability 7 days; Concentration limit high 6.0 mg/dl
auto-CREATININE liquicolor : Calibration stability 7 days; Interfering method HbA1c-2
CHOLESTEROL liquicolor (LCF) : Concentration limit high 1100 mg/dl
CRP : Calibration stability 14 days
