Chapter 2 Rules Setup
This chapter explains the procedures for setting rules to have the analyzer automatically perform a
subsequent operation based on the results of the first analysis.
2.1
Types of rules
Rules
Rules can only be displayed and set for the [Built-in User] registered at the factory.
The analysis data are judged by setting rules. The results of judgment can be reviewed in the [Sample Explorer] and
[Data Browser] screens. Up to 100 rules can be setup for each condition indicated below*.
A rule-based judgment is performed on the results of the first analysis. Based on the result of a rule-based judgment,
[Repeat] analysis, [Rerun] analysis, [Reflex] analysis, comment, validation, or an output is performed. [Repeat],
[Rerun], and [Reflex] judgments will be performed for the second analysis results, but not for the third analysis
results.
* Registering are possible for [Rerun/Reflex/Comment Rule], [Validation Rule] or [Output Rule].
Analysis
[Repeat] analysis:
[Rerun] analysis:
[Reflex] analysis:
Repeats the first analysis.
Repeats analysis of a sample while holding the results of the first analysis.
Tests additional parameters due to the results of the first analysis.
Information
If you desire a rule change, registration, deletion or copy, contact Sysmex representative.
Note:
The rules are not applied to the results of analysis for maintenance (QC), analysis of sample
number "0", and analysis that resulted in a barcode reader read error.

XN series Administrator's Guide
Revised February 2012
Chapter 2
Rules Setup
In the XN series, the following 4 types of rules can be set.
2.1.1
Repeat rule
[Repeat] means to do [Repeat] analysis if an error occurs in the first analysis*.
If an error occurs in the first analysis, a [Repeat] analysis is performed automatically. A [Repeat] rule is set for
each error message. The settings can be checked in the rule setting area of the [Repeat Rule] screen. (➤P.2-7
"Repeat Rule")
* When a sampler (SA-01) is used, analysis is not performed. Only rule judgment is performed.
e.g.
Error message:
Action:
Explanation:
[0.25 mPa pressure error]
[Repeat]
If a [0.25 mPa pressure error] occurs, a [Repeat] analysis is
automatically performed.
For a list of error messages, refer to the "Instruction For Use"*.
(➤Instruction For Use, "Chapter 14: 14.2 Error message list")
* The error messages below are [BlockRepeat (Fixed)], and are not displayed in the screen.
• [41°C reagent heater thermistor error]
• [34°C reagent heater thermistor error]
• [41°C FCM reaction chamber thermistor error]
• [34°C FCM reaction chamber thermistor error]
• [FCM detector thermistor error]
• [FCM sheath thermistor error]
• [Environment temperature thermistor error]
• [APD thermistor error]
• [Laser output error]
2.1.2
Rerun/Reflex/Comment rule
The result of the first analysis is judged, and a [Rerun] analysis, a [Reflex] analysis, or comment is automatically
performed. You can set the judgment conditions under which a [Rerun] analysis, a [Reflex] analysis, or
comment is automatically performed.
[Rerun/Reflex/Comment Rule] do not function if an error occurs in the first analysis.
Rerun
[Rerun] is used to judge the analysis result and automatically rerun the test*.
The result of the first analysis is judged, and a [Rerun] analysis is automatically performed. When there are
multiple analyzers, you can specify which analyzer is used to perform [Rerun] analysis. However, if the
specified analyzer does not have the [Rerun] analysis function, [Rerun] analysis is performed using the same
analyzer as the initial analysis. You can set the judgment condition under which a [Rerun] analysis is
performed.
* When a sampler (SA-01) is used, analysis is not performed. Only rule judgment is performed.
e.g.
Conditional Expression:
[IPMessage]([RBC Abn Distribution])[OR][IPMessage]([Dimorphic
Population])
Action:
[Rerun]([SameModule])
Explanation:
If the judgment displays an IP message [RBC Abn Distribution] (RBC
abnormal distribution) or [Dimorphic Population], [Rerun] analysis is
performed automatically using the same analyzer as the initial analysis.

XN series Administrator's Guide
Revised February 2012
Chapter 2
Rules Setup
Reflex
[Reflex] is a setting that is used to judge analysis results and automatically perform analysis with additional
discrete items not analyzed in the initial analysis*.
The result from the first analysis is judged, and a [Reflex] analysis is performed on the parameters that are
different from the first test. Set the judgment conditions for performing a [Reflex] analysis of the initial analysis.
* When a sampler (SA-01) is used, analysis is not performed. Only rule judgment is performed.
e.g.
Conditional Expression:
Action:
Explanation:
[IPMessage]([PLT Abn Distribution])
[Reflex]([DIFF+RET+PLT-F+WPC])
If the judgment shows the IP message [PLT Abn Distribution](abnormal
platelet distribution), a [Reflex] analysis is performed on discrete
parameters [DIFF+RET+PLT-F+WPC].
Comment
A comment is a setting that judges the analysis result and automatically displays a comment.
If [None] is selected for the action, a conditional expression that only sets a comment can be set.
e.g.
Conditional Expression:
Action:
Comment:
Explanation:
[ItemValue](HGB[***.* g/dL]) < 8.0
[None]
Contact doctor
When HGB is less than 8.0 g/dL, "Contact doctor" appears in the
comment column.

Validation rule
To validate means to approve the output of the analysis data for reporting. The [Validation Rule] sets the
judgment condition under which validation is automatically performed.
The analysis result that have been already judged by the [Repeat Rule] or the [Rerun/Reflex/Comment Rule] is
judged, and validation is automatically performed.
e.g.
2.1.4
Conditional Expression:
Action:
Explanation:
[ResultFlag]([Negative])
[Validate]
If an analysis data flag judgment result was Negative based on the
[Rerun/Reflex/Comment Rule], validation is performed automatically.
Output rule
The [Output Rule] sets the judgment condition for automatically outputting the analysis result.
Analysis result that has been already validated is judged and automatically output. You can also set the output
destination.
e.g.
Conditional Expression:
Action:
Explanation:
[ResultFlag]([Negative])
[ReportTo]([HC])
If the Positive/Negative judgment is [Negative] the analysis data is

● Delta check
Purpose
Detects the possibility of the following errors:
Possibility of sample mix-up.
Possibility of a sample or instrument problem
Method
The difference between the data being judged and the previous analysis data is
obtained using the [Patient ID] as a keyword.
Checked parameters
WBC, HGB, MCV, PLT.
If the previous analysis was performed more than four days earlier, WBC
judgment is not performed.
Display
[Check] is displayed in the [Action] column of the [Sample Explorer] screen and
in the Action field of the [Data Browser] screen. The following Delta check details
can be viewed in the [Data Browser] screen.
• [The sample might be wrong. Check the sample.]
• [Significant change in %s. Check the sample.]
Judgment method
The difference (Diff) between the judged data and the previous analysis data is
obtained from the following equation:
Diff = | a - b | / c × 100
a: Judged value
b: Previous value
c: The smaller of a and b
Supplementary
information
The threshold (low level) for [Significant change in %s. Check the sample.] and
the threshold (high level) for [The sample might be wrong. Check the sample.]
are different. These thresholds are determined by proprietary Sysmex
parameters and equations. The parameters and equations vary by analysis
item.
Normal: Diff value < Low level
[Significant change in %. Check the sample.]:
Low level < Diff value < High level
[The sample might be wrong. Check the sample.]:
High level < Diff value
Note:
Using the patient ID as a keyword, delta check compares the most recent analysis data with the
previous analysis data and judges if the data is abnormal based on any changes in the data.
• If you are using multiple analyzers, you can compare data with a same patient ID across
analyzers.
• When multiple IPUs are used with the transportation controller (CT-90), analysis data
cannot be compared between IPUs.

The reservation number of the special rack
This section explains the reservation numbers for special racks that are used when the XN-9000 is used.
The reservation numbers of the special racks are as follows:
S R****
00:
The sample positions in the rack are associated with units in the system, and the
samples are conveyed accordingly.
The sample that is placed in rack position 10 is conveyed to conveyor "CV1".
The sample that is placed in rack position 9 is conveyed to conveyor "CV2".
Similarly, the samples in sample positions through position 1 are conveyed to
the respectively associated units. However, QC samples are conveyed to all
conveyers in sequential order.
01 to 10:
The number on the rack label is associated with the unit configuration, and
sample is transported.
If the number of the rack label is "01", it is transported to conveyor "CV1". If the
number of the rack label is "02", it is transported to conveyor "CV2". Similarly
thereafter, all rack label numbers up to number "10" are associated with, and
transported to, their respective units*.
* CV1 is the conveyor (CV-40) connected to the rack discharge side of the
barcode terminal (BT-40). From there on, the conveyors are enumerated in
sequential order as CV2, CV3, and so on.
H:
The racks are transported for analyzer only.
A:
Conveying is possible for all analyzers connected to the conveyor controller, with
the exception of the SP-10.
S:
Indicates the reservation number for Shutdown.
R:
Indicates the reservation number for Auto Rinse.
Q:
Indicates the reservation number for QC.
SR:
Indicates the reservation number for Special Rack.
CELLCLEAN AUTO placement methods and required time
When using the XN-3000/9000, the CELLCLEAN AUTO vials can be placed together in specified positions in
1 rack and automatically conveyed to all instruments. However, the overall rinsing operation will take longer
because the instruments will be rinsed sequentially (approximate time: 15 minutes per instrument).
• XN-3000: The placement positions in the rack correspond to the instruments as follows:
8th: SP-10, 9th: Analyzer (left), 10th: Analyzer (right)
• XN-9000: Special rack with reservation number ending with "00".

Automatic assignment of sample ID and rack numbers
A sample ID number or rack number is automatically assigned to samples for which a barcode label read error
occurred or for which analysis started while the analysis order was still being downloaded.
An automatically assigned sample number starts with a symbol that distinguishes it from other sample numbers.
● Sample ID number
Number starting with [ERR]
Assigned when a barcode label read error occurs.
A barcode label read error also occurs when a number includes
characters that cannot be used. When a serial number is assigned
and the limit number is exceeded, the number returns to [00....01].
Number starting with [QC]
Assigned to a QC sample with a lot number or a QC file.
[BACKGROUNDCHECK]
Assigned to a background check sample.
Number starting with [PRE-CHK]
Assigned to a precision check sample.
Number starting with [CAL-CAL]
Assigned to samples calibrated by calibrator calibration (parameters
other than PLT-F).
Number starting with
[PF-CAL-CAL]*
Assigned to samples calibrated by calibrator calibration (PLT-F).
● Rack number
Automatically assigned rack numbers are 6 digits in length.
Number starting with [ERR]
Assigned when a rack label read error occurs.
A barcode label read error also occurs when a number includes
characters that cannot be used.
Information
Sample numbers starting with [QC] whose lower four digits are one of the following numbers are
reserved.
• "1101", "1102", "1103":

Check digits
To improve the reliability of ID reading, a check digit can be added.
Using the sample ID "258416" as an example, the procedures for calculating the check digits for modulus 11
and weighted modulus 11 are explained below.
Modulus 11
1
Weight the value of each digit of "258416".
Digits and weightings are as follows.

e.g: The first digit of "258416" is "6", and thus "6" is multiplied by "2", the weighting of the first digit.
2
Add all the values that result from the multiplications.
Let the result be S.
S=14+30+40+16+3+12=115
3
Calculate the remainder when S is divided by 11.
Calculate the complement of the remainder.
The complement of 11 will be the check digit.
115/11 = 10, remainder 5
11 - 5 = 6
The check digit is 6.
Note:
Symbols and characters other than the numeric characters "0" to "9" are treated as "0". When
division of S by 11 results in a remainder of 0, or when calculation of the check digit results in 10,
0 is used for the check digit.

Appendix
Weighted modulus 11
Weighted modulus 11 has 2 sets of weightings for each digit. The check digit is first calculated with the first set
of weightings. If the resulting check digit is 10, the check digit is calculated again using the second set of
weightings. The result will always be a value from 0 to 9. Aside from the different weightings, the calculation
procedure is the same as for modulus 11.

Weight the value of each digit of "258416".
Digits and weightings are as follows.

Let the result be S.
S=16+20+40+12+6+12=106
3
Calculate the remainder when S is divided by 11.
Calculate the complement of the remainder.
The complement of 11 will be the check digit.
106/11 = 9, remainder 7
11 - 7 = 4
The check digit is 4.
Note:
• Symbols and characters other than the numeric characters "0" to "9" are treated as "0". When
division of S by 11 results in a remainder of 0, or when calculation of the check digit results in
10, 0 is used for the check digit.
• In weighted modulus 11, weightings for digits after the 12th digit (13th and higher digits) are 0.
These are not included in the check digit calculation.
