2.1.7 Startup Procedure


1 The analyzer is powered on.
2 The operating software is run and starts checking the running environment.
3 Check the middle-low layer units status.
4 The software checks the parameters and status of the analyzer, and inquires the key
parameters and status of all units.
5 If a bar code reader is configured, its handshake is performed.
6 Fluidic initialization is performed.
7 Mechanical reset is performed.
8 The reaction carousel temperature control is turned on.
9 The lamp is turned off and the dark current and maximum luminance value of the
reaction carousel lamp are inquired. The lamp is turned on (it takes 5 minutes for the
lamp to become steady. When 5 minutes are not reached and the system finishes its
home procedure, the system enters incubation status). If the lamp has been turned
on, neither turn off the lamp nor query the dark current.
10 System reset is executed.
11 Clean special exterior of the sample probe.
12 Turn on the cuvette cleaning water, preheat the wash solution, and preheat the
reagent.

5.9.1 Functions and Parameters


The BS-240 has inherited the mature filter light-splitting technology of Mindray's BS
series. The photoelectric detection unit uses a light source to illuminate directly. After
passing through the interference filter, composite light becomes monochromatic light of
a specific bandwidth. After being absorbed by a solution, the monochromatic beam is
received by a photodetector. The photodetector converts the optical signal with light
intensity into an electric signal. A microprocessing unit calculates the concentration of the
solution by calculating the change of the light intensity. Multiple monochromatic
wavelengths required in a photometric system are implemented by using a filter wheel
apparatus. During measurement, filters are sequentially shifted into the optical path to
implement colorimetric measurement of each wavelength.

Technical Parameters
 Optical system method: filter wheel forward-splitting system, optical-to-electric
conversion of silicon photodiode.
 Wavelength range: 8 wavelengths: 340nm, 405nm, 450nm, 510nm, 546nm, 578nm,
630nm, and 670nm
 Wavelength accuracy: ±2nm
 Light source index: 12V/20W tungsten-halogen lamp
 Minimum reaction volume: 100μl
 Absorbance range: 0-4A, 10mm light pathlength
 Optical pathlength of reaction cuvette: 5mm
 Number of cuvettes: 8 segments, including 40 cuvettes in total
 Cuvette cavity dimensions: 5mm×5mm×29.5mm
 Cuvette material: plastic

Terms of Optics
 AD value: the value converted from photoelectric signal (voltage) through AD
converter.
 Water blank: the AD value of a cuvette measured when the wash station dispenses
water in phase 6. Water blank is the base point for calculation absorbance, that is,
the 0 point of absorbance.
 Cuvette blank out of range: means the water blank of phase 6 is less than the light
intensity low limit. This alarm is used to monitor the energy level of the optical
system to ensure normal signal-to-noise ratio.

BS-240 Service Manual 5-75


5 Modules and Units
5.9 Photoelectric Unit

Cuvette blank out of range (10X): means the relative change of continuous phase-6 water
blanks for 10 cuvettes is greater than 3% comparing with the history data. This alarm is
used to prevent light fluctuation or erroneous result due to cuvette overflowing and to
remind the operator of this phenomenon.

5.9.2 Composition and Structure of Optical Assembly


The BS-240 optical assembly uses a filter wheel plus a PD to for photometric
measurement. See the figure below. The light source illuminates directly, and the beam is
converged by the lens 1 and then split by the filter. A monochromatic beam is shaped by
the lens 2 and then passes through the cuvette. After being absorbed by the solution, the
beam is converged by the lens 3. Finally, the optical signal is received by the photodiode
and converted into an electric signal for outputting. The whole optical path is from the
reaction carousel inwards.

5.10.6 Inventory Calculation of Reagent Pack


Reagent pack as one part of the ISE module should be installed as instructed by this
manual. You should install reagent pack while the analyzer is powered off, and then check
the reagent inventory and prime the ISE module with Calibrator A and B. If the reagent
pack is not properly installed, error may be produced in inventory calculation, and the
actual volume may differ from that displayed on the screen.

The following operations may result in the actual inventory of the ISE reagent pack less
than the displayed one.

1 When the analyzer is turned on and the ISE module is in failure status, the reagent
pack is changed, without recovering the module failure or checking the inventory
immediately.
Operation explanation: When the ISE module is in Stopped status, the software will stop
writing volume information into the reagent pack chip. However, the analyzer will
automatically execute the sip action of the ISE module during startup to consume
certain amount of reagent. Therefore, when the reagent pack is replaced, but the ISE
module is not restored or the screen display refreshed, the software will not calculate
the reagent consumption volume until reading the new reagent pack. At this
moment, the actual reagent volume = displayed volume - consumption of Sip after
replacing the reagent pack, which means that the actual reagent volume is less than
the displayed volume on the screen.
2 When the analyzer is powered on but the software is closed or the computer is shut
down, the reagent pack is changed.
Operation explanation: During shutdown, the analyzer will automatically execute the
sip action of the ISE module to consume certain amount of reagent. When the
analyzer is started up, the software will detect a new reagent pack and zero the
consumption that is not written into the reagent pack chip, and then display the
volume read from the reagent pack chip. At this moment, the actual reagent volume
= displayed volume - consumption of Sip after replacing the reagent pack, which
means that the actual reagent volume is less than the displayed volume on the screen.
3 When the analyzer is powered on but the software is closed or the computer is shut
down, the reagent pack is switched to another analyzer and then installed back after
use.
Operation explanation: During shutdown process, the analyzer cannot detect if the
reagent pack is normal. If the reagent pack is installed on the current instrument
after being used on another one, the analyzer, when started up, will detect that the
recorded reagent volume on the chip is less than the original one, and the software
will zero the reagent consumption of Sip during shutdown and display the read
volume on the screen. At this moment, the actual reagent volume = displayed volume
- consumption of Sip during shutdown (with reagent pack installed), which means
that the actual reagent volume is less than the displayed volume on the screen.

BS-240 Service Manual 5-93


5 Modules and Units
5.10 ISE Unit (Optional)

4 The ISE module is de-configured, but the reagent pack is still on the instrument.
Operation explanation: Though the ISE module is de-configured, the original reagent
pack information is not cleared from the database. When the ISE module is
configured again with the same reagent pack, the Sip period without ISE module will
be included in calculation of the reagent consumption.

NOTE:

 In condition 1, restore the ISE module and check the reagent inventory immediately
to minimize or eliminate the calculation error.
 In condition 2 and 3, before running the operating software to start up the analyzer,
remove the reagent pack and then run the operating software. After the startup
procedure is complete, re-install the reagent pack and inquire the reagent volume
immediatelyto minimize or eliminate the calculation error.
 In condition 4, remove the reagent pack and then de-configure the ISE module.
The following operations may result in the actual inventory of the ISE reagent pack more
than the displayed one.
1 When the analyzer is turned on and the ISE reagent pack is changed, without
checking the inventory immediately.
Operation explanation: The analyzer will automatically refresh the ISE reagent
consumption, by subtracting the consumption of calibrator A or B from the known
volume (of the original reagent pack) and writing it into the reagent pack chip,
when calibrator A or B is consumed for 1%. The written volume is based on the
original reagent pack before replacement, and the volume of a used reagent pack is
often less than that of a new one. So the volume recorded on the chip of the new
reagent pack is less than the actual volume, and the actual volume is greater than the
displayed volume on the screen.
2 When the analyzer is powered on but the software is closed or the computer is shut
down, the reagent pack is removed for storage, and re-installed before the operating
software is run.
Operation explanation: During shutdown process, the analyzer cannot detect if the
reagent pack is normal. If the reagent pack is loaded before the analyzer is started up,
the analyzer, when started up, will detect that the reagent volume recorded on the
chip is same as that recorded by the software, but the software will confirm by
mistake the reagent consumption of sip during shutdown. (Actually, no reagent is
consumed.)Therefore, after calculating the reagent consumption, the software will
write the new volume information onto the chip and display it on the screen. At this
moment, the actual reagent volume = displayed volume + consumption of Sip during
shutdown (with reagent pack installed), which means that the actual reagent volume
is greater than the displayed volume on the screen.
3 The analyzer is powered off after the operating software is closed, and it is powered
on again before the operating software is run.

5-94 BS-240 Chemistry Analyzer Service Manual


5 Modules and Units
5.10 ISE Unit (Optional)

Operation explanation: When closed normally, the operating software cannot detect if
the ISE module is working. When powered on before the software is run, the
analyzer, when started up, will detect that the reagent volume recorded on the chip is
same as that recorded by the software, but the software will confirm by mistake the
reagent consumption of sip during shutdown. (Actually, no reagent is consumed
because the ISE module is not working while the analyzer is powered off.)Therefore,
after calculating the reagent consumption, the software will write the new volume
information onto the chip and display it on the screen. At this moment, the actual
reagent volume = displayed volume + consumption of Sip during shutdown (with
reagent pack installed), which means that the actual reagent volume is greater than
the displayed volume on the screen.

NOTE:

 In condition 1, inquire the ISE reagent volume immediatelyto minimize or eliminate


the calculation error.
 In condition 2 and 3, before running the operating software to start up the analyzer,
remove the reagent pack and then run the operating software. After the startup
procedure is complete, re-install the reagent pack and inquire the reagent volume
immediatelyto minimize or eliminate the calculation error.
