Introduction
Before you start
Intended use
The CoaguChek® XS Pro system (CoaguChek XS Pro meter and CoaguChek XS PT Test strips)
quantitatively determines prothrombin time (PT), using capillary blood or whole blood from a vein
(nonanticoagulated venous whole blood). It is indicated for use by healthcare professionals. The
system is ideally suited to monitor coagulation values in people who are taking oral anticoagulation medication (vitamin K antagonists, VKAs).
Important information regarding use
Read this operator's manual, as well as the package inserts for all relevant consumables, before
using the system for the first time.
You must configure the CoaguChek XS Pro meter according to your needs before initial use. Refer
to chapter 4 Meter Setup. Be sure to read the Important safety instructions and additional information section in this chapter before operating the system.
Before you use the meter for the first time ( after you have first inserted the batteries), you must
set the date and time correctly to allow you to perform measurements properly. Each time you
replace the batteries you need to check (and, if necessary adjust) the date and time.
11
Introduction
If you need help
Information about using the system, the screen menus, and performing a test can be found in this
manual.
When error messages appear on the screen, refer to chapter 10 Troubleshooting.
For all questions about the CoaguChek XS Pro system that are not answered in this manual,
contact your Roche representative. In order to expedite troubleshooting, please have ready your
CoaguChek XS Pro meter, its serial number, this manual, and all related consumables when you
call.
General note
The data and information provided in this manual are current as of issue. Any substantial
changes will be incorporated in the next edition. If there is any conflict of information, the
package insert included with the CoaguChek XS PT Test strips shall prevail.
What can the system do for you?
The CoaguChek XS Pro system makes coagulation testing easy. You only need to insert the code
chip, power the meter on, insert the test strip, and apply a small blood sample. The blood mixes
with the reagents on the test strip, and the meter determines when the blood clots. The meter
displays the results in about one minute. After the measurement, the meter automatically stores
the test result, together with date/time and patient ID (and operator ID, if that option is enabled)
to memory.
The CoaguChek XS Pro meter displays test results in units equivalent to laboratory plasma measurements. Results may be displayed in three ways:
■
International Normalized Ratio (INR)
■
combination of INR/seconds, or
■
combination of INR/%Quick
INR is a standardized measurement of the rate at which blood clots. A low INR can indicate an
increased risk of blood clots, while an elevated INR can indicate increased risk of bleeding.
12
Introduction
The meter guides you through the test, step by step, using icons and instructions on the display.
Each box of test strips has its own code chip that you insert into the meter. This code chip contains lot-specific information about its test strips, such as the expiration date and calibration
data. Optional liquid controls for the system are also available.
The CoaguChek XS Pro meter has the ability to connect to a data management system (DMS)
through the Handheld Base Unit from Roche (available separately). The CoaguChek XS Pro
meter supports data exchange via the POCT1A standard. Data management systems may have
the ability to expand the security features of the meter, such as enabling operator lockouts. Data
management systems may also enable data transfer to an LIS or HIS. Refer to the manuals of the
Handheld Base Unit and of your DMS for technical details.
Test principle
The CoaguChek XS PT Test Strip contains a lyophilized reagent. The reactive components of this
reagent consist of thromboplastin and a peptide substrate. When a sample is applied, thromboplastin activates coagulation, which leads to the formation of thrombin. At the same time the
meter starts to measure the time. The enzyme thrombin cleaves the peptide substrate, generating
an electrochemical signal. Depending on the time elapsed when it first appears, this signal is
then converted by means of an algorithm into customary coagulation units (INR, %Quick, seconds) and the result is displayed.
13
Introduction

Power supply
The CoaguChek XS Pro meter can be operated with either the power adapter provided, four
standard type AA alkaline, non-rechargeable batteries, or a special rechargeable battery pack
(optional). Insert the batteries or the optional rechargeable battery pack even when you use the
power adapter. This ensures that you will not lose the date and time settings if the power goes
out.
The power adapter also serves as a charger if you use it with the special rechargeable battery
pack.
When working with the battery pack: Unused battery packs lose their charge over time and
have to be recharged before they can be used. After installing a new battery pack, the meter
should be charged for two hours in the base unit before testing. Please note that the battery
pack will only reach full capacity once it has been fully emptied and charged several times.
To save power, the CoaguChek XS Pro meter has the option to automatically power itself off
based on your setup selections, unless a button has been pressed or a new test strip has been
inserted. The default setting is set to 5 minutes. When the meter powers itself off, all results
obtained up to that point remain in memory and the settings will still be there when you power
the meter back on. (Refer to Auto Off on page 54.)

the CoaguChek XS Pro meter or to the optional Handheld Base Unit (HBU) and dock the
meter.
The meter’s battery power level indicator is designed for use with either standard, nonrechargeable AA batteries or the dedicated Roche handheld battery pack. We do not recommend the use of off-the-shelf rechargeable batteries in AA format. These have lower voltages
than standard AA batteries or the special Roche handheld battery pack. This can lead to incorrect battery power level indications on the meter.
29
Putting the Meter into Operation
Inserting the batteries
1
With the meter powered off, press the
battery compartment cover release tab
and slide the cover off.
2
Insert the four batteries in the battery
compartment as indicated.
The batteries should last about 80 tests,
depending on the type of battery used.
30
Putting the Meter into Operation
3
Slide the battery compartment back onto
the meter and close it.
The meter powers itself on after the
batteries have been inserted.
Powering the meter on and off
1
Place the meter on a level, vibration-free
surface, or hold it in your hand so it is
roughly horizontal.
2
Power the meter on by pressing the
button for approximately 1 second.
You can also power on the meter directly by
inserting a test strip or connecting the power
adapter.
3
To power the meter off after use, press the
button for approximately 1 second.

Note on presentation of screen elements in this manual
Buttons are screen prompts that cause something to happen when touched. The names of all
buttons are either shown as bold text or as the icon used on the button (e.g.,
for OK ).
Other screen elements (e.g., Menu titles) are written in italics. These screen elements are not
active.
If you have not set the date and time (after powering on for the first time or because the batteries were removed from the meter for more than 10 minutes), you cannot perform a test. In
that case powering on the meter takes you immediately to the Setup mode, where you must
set the date and time (see page 43 and following).
After date and time have been set, the meter automatically moves to the Main Menu, where
you can start a test or enter more settings.
You can open any displayed function by
touching (or tapping) the button for it with
your finger (or a special pen for this purpose).
“Tap” means: Touch the button, then remove
your finger from the touchscreen. The next
screen appears once you remove your finger.
If the meter did not automatically enter the
Setup mode (e.g., after the batteries were
replaced), you can open the Setup menu from
the Main Menu.

Computer
The CoaguChek XS Pro meter can connect with a computer or host system running appropriate
software (that is, a DMS must be installed). To use this connectivity feature, however, you need
the optional Handheld Base Unit. The connection is established in two steps.
■
The meter connects to the Handheld Base Unit via infrared.
■
The Handheld Base Unit is either connected to a single computer (via USB) or to a
network/host system (via ethernet).
The option Computer (when activated) can be used together with a DMS to set up:
■
operator lists, or
■
patient lists (lists of patients to be tested)
This eliminates the need for manual entry of these data.
In addition, you can transfer test results stored in the meter to other systems for archiving or
further evaluation. The option Computer controls the meter’s ability to communicate with a
computer or a network.

Meter Setup
ID setup
Use the ID Setup menu to enter settings for user management and patient management. These
settings are optional and set to Off/Inactive by default; the meter can be operated without these
settings.
There are three types of identification used with the meter:
■
System Administrator: The Admin. (Administrator) has special rights to enter certain
meter settings and is the only one who can enter and change these settings. It is not
necessary for Admin. identification to be activated to use the CoaguChek XS Pro meter.
However, it might be desired or necessary, depending on the regulatory environment and
the site of use.
■
Operator: The Operator ID is assigned to persons who use the meter to run tests. If you
want to use Operator IDs, you have several options:
–
You may use Operator IDs to restrict the use of the meter to qualified personnel or a
predefined group of users. In this case an operator list created externally must be transferred to the meter, enabling you to select an Operator ID when logging in. For more
details see Data handling, starting on page 119.
–
You may use Operator IDs for informational purposes only, in order to assign stored
measurement results to the users who performed the test. In this case Operator IDs may
be entered directly on the meter (by keypad or scanner), with or without an operator list
being available.
Patient: The Patient ID is assigned to the person, whose test results are recorded. You
can either:
■
–
block input of a unique Patient ID (in this case, every test is simply numbered in
consecutive order)
–
allow a unique Patient ID as optional, or
–
require a unique Patient ID for every test. Patient lists created externally can also be transferred to the meter, enabling you to select Patient IDs for a test from these lists. For more
details see Data handling, starting on page 119.
Operator IDs can be selected from a list (if available) or read by the barcode scanner on the side
of the meter. If passwords were created, they must be entered via the onscreen keypad.
Patient IDs can be entered by using the onscreen keypad or the barcode scanner on the side of
the meter.

Meter Setup
QC Settings setup
The QC Settings menu contains options for enforcing the performance of liquid quality controls
by the operator at specified intervals. It also provides the option of customizing the QC Range in
accordance with applicable local guidelines.
QC Range
There are two options:
■
Default Range: The meter displays the QC Range provided by Roche in the code chip.
■
Custom Range: The option Custom Range lets the user define their own QC Range within
the default range.
Lockouts (QC Lockout and Operator Lockout)
If the liquid quality control test is not performed correctly, or if the result is outside the target
value range, the meter is locked from further use. The Lockout can also be set up selectively for
individual operators.
A liquid quality control test must be completed successfully before the meter is available again
for testing (either by the operator or in general).
The option of setting up an Operator Lockout is available only when operator lists are created
on a data management system (DMS), stored in the meter, and Operator login is activated.
These lists are only available in connection with a data management system. For more details
see Data handling, starting on page 119.

Custom Range, you can now select an
allowed deviation from target value in the
range of 0 to 22.5% (in the illustration,
11.5%).
04/19/2012
Note: Percentage deviation from target
value is always defined using INR values.
Even if you have activated % Quick in
the setup, the meter always calculates
the deviation using INR values; this
range is then converted to % Quick in a
second step. As there is no linear correlation between values expressed as INR and
values expressed as % Quick, if you calculate the percentage deviation (11.5 % in
the example) using the % Quick target
value, your result may deviate from the
result calculated by the meter using the
INR target value.

Testing a Blood Sample
What you need:
■
CoaguChek XS Pro meter
■
CoaguChek XS PT Test Strips and matching code chip
■
When testing with capillary blood:
–
Single-use lancing device approved for professional use (e.g., the Accu-Chek Safe-T-Pro
Plus lancing device or the CoaguChek Lancets)
–
CoaguChek Capillary Tubes/Bulbs (optional)
Do not use glass capillary tubes or capillary tubes that contain anticoagulants.
■
Cotton ball and alcohol wipe
Important notes
Always …
■
… close the strip container immediately after removing a test strip.
■
… operate the meter at an ambient temperature between 15 °C and 32 °C
(59 °F and 90 °F).
■
… place the meter on a level, stable surface (table) or hold it so it is roughly horizontal.
■
… follow the information on correct handling of test strips in the package insert.
■
… keep the test strip guide and housing clean. See also the chapter entitled Cleaning and
Disinfecting the Meter (starting on page 126).
Protection against infection:
When collecting samples always observe the general precautions and
guidelines relating to blood sampling (see page 16).
Dispose of all test strips used for patient testing in accordance with the
disposal policy of your laboratory or practice (see page 16)
79
Testing a Blood Sample
Never …
■
… store the meter at extreme temperatures (above 40 °C or 104 °F) while it is in regular
use.
■
… store the meter in damp or humid conditions without protection.
■
… remove or insert the code chip while the meter is performing a test.
■
… use the code chip from a pack of strips other than the one in use.
■
… touch or remove the test strip during a test.
■
… wait more than 15 seconds after a fingerstick before applying the blood.
■
… fingerstick a patient with wet hands (residues of water, sweat, or alcohol).
■
… add more blood after the test has begun.
■
… perform a test with a drop of blood from a previous puncture.
CAUTION
80
Accuracy/precision of measured results:
Failure to comply with the above may lead to inaccurate results. An
incorrect result may lead to an error in diagnosis, therefore posing
danger to the patient.
Testing a Blood Sample
Getting a good capillary blood sample
To get a suitable drop of blood:
■
Warm the hand. Have the patient hold it under his or her arm or use a hand warmer. Wash
hands with soap and warm water. Dry thoroughly.
■
Have the patient let that arm hang down by his or her side before lancing a finger.
■
Massage the finger from its base.
Use these techniques until the fingertip has increased color.
■
Immediately after lancing, massage gently along the side of the finger to obtain a good
blood drop without pressing or squeezing too hard.
■
Apply the blood drop to the test strip immediately (within 15 seconds).
■
Optionally, you may use a CoaguChek Capillary tube/bulb to collect the fingerstick blood
sample.
CAUTION
When washing or disinfecting the patient's finger, allow it to dry thoroughly. Residues of water or disinfectant on the skin can dilute the drop
of blood and so produce false results.
Getting a good result from venous whole blood
For sample collection use a standard blood collection device. Do not use anti-coagulants
(e.g., EDTA, citrate, fluoride, oxalate, or heparin) to collect the blood sample. Venous blood
samples may be collected from a venous line.
If venous samples are collected by venipuncture, note the following:
■
Use a needle at least 23 G (approx. 0.65 mm) or larger in size.
■
Discard the first four drops of blood collected (within the first 10 seconds). Then immediately apply one drop of blood (at least 8 μL) directly onto the target area of the test strip.
Ensure that no air bubbles are introduced into the sample.
Protection against infection
When collecting samples always observe the general precautions and
guidelines relating to blood sampling (see page 16).
Dispose of all test strips used for patient testing in accordance with the
disposal policy of your laboratory or practice (see page 16).
81
Testing a Blood Sample
Preparing to test
1
Have the test strip container at hand.
2
Make sure that the code chip supplied
with these test strips is at hand.
Each pack of test strips contains a code chip. The number on the code chip and the number
on the test strip container must match. A capital S in front of the number indicates that this
code chip is for test strips. (A capital C in front of the number indicates that it is a control
solution code chip. See Chapter 6, Control Testing and Quality Control).
82
Testing a Blood Sample
Test strip code chip
The code chip provides the meter with important information that it needs to perform the coagulation test. The chip contains information about the test method, the lot number, and the expiration date. The code chip is required, whenever a new test strip lot is used, so that the meter can
read and store the lot information about that particular lot of test strips.
The CoaguChek XS Pro meter stores the data from up to 60 code chips that have been inserted.
■
Do not forget to use the test strip code chip that is supplied with each pack of test strips
before you perform the first test with these strips. We recommend that you leave the code
chip in the meter to protect the electrical contacts in the meter from becoming dirty.
■
Each code chip belongs to a particular lot of test strips. Only remove the code chip when
you are testing with test strips taken from a new pack.
■
Protect the code chip from moisture and equipment that produces magnetic fields.
Inserting the code chip
1
Remove the old code chip, if one is
inserted in the meter.
83
Testing a Blood Sample
2
Check that the number on the code chip
matches the number on the label of the
test strip container.
3
Slide the new code chip into the code chip
slot (as shown) until you feel it snap into
place.
If the code chip is missing or incorrectly inserted, error messages appear in the display (refer to
the Troubleshooting section of this manual).
84
Testing a Blood Sample
Powering on the meter
1
Place the meter on a level, vibration-free
surface, or hold it in your hand so it is
roughly horizontal.
2
Power the meter on by pressing the
button for approximately 1 second.
You can also power on the meter directly by
inserting a test strip or connecting the power
adapter.
The next steps depend on whether you work

Testing a Blood Sample
WARNING
Use only a single-use lancing device that is approved for use by healthcare professionals, such as the Accu-Chek Safe-T-Pro or Safe-T-Pro Plus
lancing devices, or the CoaguChek Lancets (professional-use lancets
available only in the United States). Follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
11 Now lance the side of a fingertip with the
lancing device.
We recommend obtaining the capillary blood
from the side of the fingertip as this causes
the least pain.
Massage the lanced finger gently until a drop
of blood is formed. Do not press or squeeze
the finger.
Apply the first drop of blood from the finger.
12 Apply the blood (8 μL) directly from the
finger to the semicircular, transparent
sample application area on top of the test
strip.
■
… or you can touch the blood drop
against the side of the sample application
area. The test strip draws up the blood by
capillary action.
During this process you must hold the
blood drop to the test strip until the flashing blood drop icon has disappeared and
the meter beeps (provided the beeper is
enabled).
■
… you can also apply the blood using the
optional CoaguChek capillary tube.
Apply the blood drop to the test strip within
15 seconds of lancing the fingertip. Applying
blood after this period of time may lead to an
erroneous result (as the coagulation process
would already have started).

Control Testing and Quality Control
The CoaguChek XS Pro meter has a number of built-in quality control functions.
■
A check of the electronic components and functions every time the meter is powered on.
■
A check of the test strip temperature while a test is in progress.
■
A check of the expiration date and lot information on the test strip carried out by the code
chip.
■
A two-level, onboard quality control test and patient result determination within a single
test chamber.
Roche offers optional liquid quality controls for the CoaguChek XS Pro system. These controls
are provided to assist with regulatory compliance requirements as applicable to your facility.
To perform an optional liquid quality control test using control solutions, you need:
■
CoaguChek XS Pro meter
■
The test strip code chip supplied with the test strip container you are using. A code chip
is provided with every test strip package.
■
Test strips that came with the code chip mentioned above
■
Bottles of CoaguChek XS Pro PT Controls, diluent droppers, and the quality control code
chip provided.
You can choose the frequency of liquid quality control tests in the meter setup. (Refer to the
chapter entitled Meter Setup/QC (quality control) Lockout starting on page 74). If the control
results in the display are in the specified range, this confirms that the liquid control test was
performed correctly.
101
Control Testing and Quality Control
Preparing to run a liquid quality control test
Prepare for a liquid quality control test in the same way you would prepare to perform a test with
a capillary blood sample. The only difference is the use of control solution instead of blood.
1
Have the test strip container at hand.
2
If you are using the test strip lot for the
first time, make sure that the code chip
that came with these test strips is at hand.
3
Make sure the bottle of freeze-dried
(lyophilized) control plasma and the dropper for making the control solution are at
hand. This bottle should remain refrigerated (not frozen) until use.
4
Make sure that the quality control code
chip that came with the control solution is
at hand.
5
Open the lid of the bottle and remove the
rubber cap.
6
Hold the dropper with the sealed dropper
neck pointing upward, then cut off the
end of the cap with scissors. Do not hold
the dropper close to your face.
To avoid loss of diluent, hold the dropper by the stem; do not squeeze the bulb of the dropper while cutting the tip.
102
Control Testing and Quality Control
7
Apply gentle pressure to the reservoir to
transfer the entire contents of the dropper
to the bottle. Make sure that the dropper
does not come into contact with the dried
control plasma.
8
Close the bottle again.
9
Make sure the dropper is at hand for the
next steps in the liquid quality control test.
10 Swirl the bottle using a circular motion to
completely dissolve all of the control
plasma inside. Do not shake the bottle
or turn it on its side. Doing so can cause
components in the control plasma to stick
to the sides of the bottle. Let the bottle sit
undisturbed for 1 minute. Please refer to
the control solution package insert.
The control solution is now ready to be applied
to the test strip.
The control solutions may be reconstituted
(mixed) after removal from the refrigerator.
The resulting solution may be used up to 30
minutes after reconstitution.
103

Data handling
Note: Extended data handling functionality is dependent on the capabilities of the
particular Data Management System (DMS) being used and may vary.
When used in conjunction with the Handheld Base Unit from Roche (available separately), the
CoaguChek XS Pro meter can conveniently connect to a data management system (DMS). The
main advantages of such a connection between meter and DMS may include:
■
Transferring patient lists, operator lists, and settings from the DMS to the meter. In this
way the setup for daily work as well as general meter setup can be performed (for one or
more meters) quickly and conveniently.
■
Transferring all stored test results with the corresponding Patient ID, Operator ID, and
comments from the meter to the DMS. This transfer of data permits further evaluation or
proper archiving according to your needs.
Through the DMS the system administrator (such as the POC coordinator) may specify what settings are to be applied to a set of meters within a site or unit (e.g., hospitals or wards). All meters
assigned to a specific site and/or unit would consequently share the same settings. The different
operator and patient lists (that match a site or unit) are then made available on their respective
meters. Other settings such as QC Lockout and Operator Lockout may easily be set (once) and
distributed to all meters.
The option of setting up an Operator Lockout is available only when operator lists are created
on the DMS, stored in the meter, and Operator login is activated. For more details on Operator
login see page 66, for details on Operator Lockout see page 76.
Computer (Setup option)
For initial connection to a DMS, the ability to communicate within a network has to be set up as
follows:
■
In the Setup menu, the Connection option must be set to Computer (see page 56).
■
The Handheld Base Unit must be configured correctly. (For details please refer to the
manual of the Handheld Base Unit and the Technical Note stored on the Handheld Base
Unit itself.)
■
Place the meter on a Handheld Base Unit that is connected to the network. The meter will
automatically be recognized by the DMS and may now be assigned to a site and/or unit
managed by the DMS (if your DMS has that functionality).
■
Depending on DMS functionality available, the DMS may transfer settings and lists to the
meter as well as enable test results to be transferred from the meter to the DMS.
119
Extended Functionalities
Operator lists
After powering the meter on, an Operator login may be configured. There are four possible configurations for an Operator login:
Operator is activated, but there is no list available:
The Operator can either log in via the onscreen keypad or a barcode scan. The use of the
meter is not restricted to a predefined Operator group, so Operator IDs are entered via the
onscreen keypad or read from the barcode and stored with test results for informational
purposes only.
■
This first configuration is also available without a DMS.
Operator is activated, there is no list available and the “List” feature is set to “hidden”
(only possible with a DMS). Setting the "List" feature to "hidden" with the DMS
automatically blocks the display of the meter's onscreen keypad as well.
The Operator can only log in via a barcode scan as there is no onscreen keypad. The use
of the meter is not restricted to a predefined Operator group, so Operator IDs are read
from the barcode and stored with test results for informational purposes only.
■
Meters which are managed by a DMS may receive an Operator list.
■
Operator is activated, a list is available and displayed on the login screen:
The Operator selects the ID from the displayed list. If so configured by the Administrator,
the Operator may also be required to enter a password to log in.
■
Operator is activated, a list is available but set to “hidden”:
The Operator can login via a barcode scan. If so configured by the Administrator, the
Operator may also be required to enter a password to log in.
When working with operator lists: The use of the meter is restricted to the operators on this
list.
120
Extended Functionalities
Patient lists
When starting a Patient Test, there will be the option of either selecting a Patient ID from a
patient list, entering the Patient ID using the onscreen keypad or, if available, of scanning the
barcode with the Patient ID. The Patient ID, if entered on the DMS, comes with an additional
identification entry. Up to 20 characters can be used and assigned as a second confirmation
(e.g., name, date of birth).
There are four possible configurations for a Patient ID input:
■
The Patient ID is set to Optional or Required, and there is no list available:
A Patient ID can be entered manually via the onscreen keypad or read in via a barcode
scan. The Patient ID is stored with the test result.
■
The Patient ID is set to No, but there is a list available:
The list of Patient IDs is always shown when starting a test. You may now
–
select a patient from the list;
–
scan a Patient ID using the barcode scanner;
–
create a new patient entry by touching New. Instead of an ID a consecutive number will
be assigned to this result.
The Patient ID is set to Optional or Required, and there is a list available:
The list of Patient IDs is always shown when starting a measurement. You may now
■
–
select a patient from the list;
–
scan a Patient ID using the barcode scanner;
–
create a new patient entry by touching New. You may either read the ID using the barcode scanner or enter a new ID via the onscreen keypad.
The Patient ID is set to “hidden” (only possible with a data management system), and
there is a list available:
When you start the test, the screen is blank and Scan is displayed.
■
–
You may now scan a Patient ID using the barcode scanner. If the patient ID is on the list,
the test will proceed. If the patient ID is not on the list, you will get an error message.
Note that the scanned Patient ID must already be on the list that is sent from the DMS to the
meter. You cannot use the scanner to scan and enter a new Patient ID if the Patient ID is set
to “hidden”.
121
Extended Functionalities
Patient list validation
Depending on DMS settings, you have the following options for patient list validation when working with Patient lists:
■
A Patient ID does not have to be on the list to be used (only valid for validation mode
“off”).
■
The meter displays a warning if the Patient ID entered is not on the list.
■
The meter displays an error message if the ID was not found on the list of valid Patient IDs.
To proceed with the test, you must scan ( if ID set to “hidden”) or select ( if ID set to Required) a
valid Patient ID.
Barcode scanner
Using a DMS, the barcode scanner may be configured to accept only selected barcode symbologies (e.g., EAN-13 Barcodes are not allowed). Furthermore it is possible to define a barcode
mask for Patient ID and Operator ID. With masks being defined, the meter checks a barcode after
scanning and rejects it, if it does not match the mask.
122
Extended Functionalities
Stored test results and comments
When performing a test, the test result will be stored along with additional information, including
the Patient ID, Operator ID, the kind of test performed, and optional Comments. The meter comes
with a default set of Comments that can be assigned to each test result. If you are working with
a DMS, these comments can be replaced by the comments in the DMS. The new wording will
then be available for selection from the Comments list in the meter.
Up to 3 comments can be assigned to each result.
The default preset comments in the meter are:

Operator and patient ID barcode masks
Barcode mask character
Definition
A-Z, 0-9
If not preceded by the Caret (“^”), the scan data character must be the
same as the mask character. This character is not saved as part of the ID. If
the characters are not the same, the scan data is not a valid ID.
Dollar (“$”)
The scan data character in this position is kept as part of the ID.
Asterisk (“*“)
The scan data character in this position is not kept as part of the ID.
Tilde (“~”)
The scan data character in this position must be a number, 0-9, and it is not
kept as part of the ID. If the scan data character is not a number, the scan
data is not a valid ID.
Plus (“+”)
The scan data character in this position must be an alpha character, A – Z,
and it is not kept as part of the ID. If the scan data character is not an alpha
character, the scan data is not a valid ID.
Caret (“^”)
This mask character denotes that the scan data character must be equal to
the next character in the barcode mask after the “^”, and that the scan data
character is kept as part of the ID. If the scan data character is not equal to
the mask character following the “^”, the barcode reading is invalid as an
ID.

General Product Specifications
Example of barcode symbologies
When creating patient or operator barcodes, always adhere to the applicable international IEC/ISO standards for the respective barcode symbology. In particular, ensure that barcode size and print quality (as
defined in ISO/IEC 15421) are adequate. Inadequate print size and/or
quality may lead to erroneous decoding.
EAN 13 barcodes, although widely used in retail, are less recommendable for patient/
operator barcodes. If used, they demand the very highest quality standards of barcode
creation and reproduction.
The barcode samples shown here are for illustration purposes only. If printed out, they can be
used to check the barcode scanner. However, they are not meant to be used as a reference for
size or resolution of real patient or operator ID barcodes. Always refer to the relevant standard
ISO/IEC 15421 for size and resolution requirements when creating patient or operator barcodes.

Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this license document, but
changing it is not allowed.
Preamble
The licenses for most software are designed to take away your freedom to share and change it.
By contrast, the GNU General Public License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and
change free software-to make sure the software is free for all its users. This General Public
License applies to most of the Free Software Foundation’s software and to any other program
whose authors commit to using it. (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by
the GNU Library General Public License instead). You can apply it to your programs, too. When
we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not price. Our General Public Licenses
are designed to make sure that you have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and
charge for this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it if you want it, that
you can change the software or use pieces of it in new free program; and that you know you can
do these things.
To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid anyone to deny you these rights
or to ask you to surrender the rights. These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you
if you distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it.
For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether gratis or for a fee, you must give
the recipients all the rights that you have. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get
the source code. And you must show them these terms so they know their rights. We protect your
rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and (2) offer you this license which gives you
legal permission to copy, distribute and/or modify the software.
Also, for each author’s protection and ours, we want to make certain that everyone understands
that there is no warranty for this free software. If the software is modified by someone else and
passed on, we want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so that any
problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original authors’ reputations.

General Product Specifications
Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software patents. We wish to avoid the
danger that redistributors of a free program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect
making the program proprietary. To prevent this, we have made it clear that any patent must be
licensed for everyone’s free use or not licensed at all.
The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and modification follow.
TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION.
This License applies to any program or other work which contains a notice placed by the
copyright holder saying it may be distributed under the terms of this General Public License. The
“Program”, below, refers to any such program or work, and a “work based on the Program”
means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law: that is to say, a work
containing the Program or a portion of it, either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated
into another language. (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in the term
“modification”.) Each licensee is addressed as “you”.
Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not covered by this License; they
are outside its scope. The act of running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the
Program is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the Program (independent of
having been made by running the Program). Whether that is true depends on what the Program
does.
1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program’s source code as you receive it, in
any medium, provided that you conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an
appropriate copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the notices that refer to
this License and to the absence of any warranty; and give any other recipients of the Program a
copy of this License along with the Program.
You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and you may at your option offer
warranty protection in exchange for a fee.
2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion of it, thus forming a work
based on the Program, and copy and distribute such modifications or work under the terms of
Section 1 above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices stating that you changed the
files and the date of any change.
b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in whole or in part contains or is
derived from the Program or any part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third
parties under the terms of this License.
c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively when run, you must cause it,
when started running for such interactive use in the most ordinary way, to print or display an
announcement including an appropriate copyright notice and a notice that there is no warranty
(or else, saying that you provide a warranty) and that users may redistribute the program under
these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of this License. (Exception: if the
Program itself is interactive but does not normally print such an announcement, your work based
on the Program is not required to print an announcement.)
141
General Product Specifications
These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. If identifiable sections of that work are
not derived from the Program, and can be reasonably considered independent and separate
works in themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those sections when you
distribute them as separate works. But when you distribute the same sections as part of a whole
which is a work based on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of this
License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the entire whole, and thus to each and
every part regardless of who wrote it. Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or
contest your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to exercise the right to
control the distribution of derivative or collective works based on the Program.
In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program with the Program (or
with a work based on the Program) on a volume of a storage or distribution medium does not
bring the other work under the scope of this License.
3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it, under Section 2) in object
code or executable form under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one
of the following:
a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable source code, which must be
distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software
interchange; or,
b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three years, to give any third party, for a
charge no more than your cost of physically performing source distribution, a complete machinereadable copy of the corresponding source code, to be distributed under the terms of Sections 1
and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer to distribute corresponding
source code. (This alternative is allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you
received the program in object code or executable form with such an offer, in accord with
Subsection b above.)
The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for making modifications to it.
For an executable work, complete source code means all the source code for all modules it
contains, plus any associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to control compilation
and installation of the executable. However, as a special exception, the source code distributed
need not include anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary form) with the
major components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the operating system on which the executable
runs, unless that component itself accompanies the executable. If distribution of executable or
object code is made by offering access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent
access to copy the source code from the same place counts as distribution of the source code,
even though third parties are not compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program except as expressly provided
under this License. Any attempt otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is
void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License. However, parties who have
received copies, or rights, from you under this License will not have their licenses terminated so
long as such parties remain in full compliance.
142
General Product Specifications
5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not signed it. However, nothing
else grants you permission to modify or distribute the Program or its derivative works. These
actions are prohibited by law if you do not accept this License. Therefore, by modifying or
distributing the Program (or any work based on the Program), you indicate your acceptance of
this License to do so, and all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying the
Program or works based on it.
6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the Program), the recipient
automatically receives a license from the original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the
Program subject to these terms and conditions. You may not impose any further restrictions on
the recipients’ exercise of the rights granted herein. You are not responsible for enforcing
compliance by third parties to this License.
7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent infringement or for any other
reason (not limited to patent issues), conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order,
agreement or otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not excuse you
from the conditions of this License. If you cannot distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your
obligations under this License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you
may not distribute the Program at all. For example, if a patent license would not permit royaltyfree redistribution of the Program by all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through
you, then the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to refrain entirely from
distribution of the Program.
If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under any particular circumstance,
the balance of the section is intended to apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in
other circumstances.
It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any patents or other property right
claims or to contest validity of any such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting
the integrity of the free software distribution system, which is implemented by public license
practices. Many people have made generous contributions to the wide range of software
distributed through that system in reliance on consistent application of that system; it is up to the
author/donor to decide if he or she is willing to distribute software through any other system and
a licensee cannot impose that choice.
This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to be a consequence of the
rest of this License.
8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in certain countries either by patents
or by copyrighted interfaces, the original copyright holder who places the Program under this
License may add an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding those countries, so
that distribution is permitted only in or among countries not thus excluded. In such case, this
License incorporates the limitation as if written in the body of this License.
9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions of the General Public
License from time to time. Such new versions will be similar in spirit to the present version, but
may differ in detail to address new problems or concerns.
143
General Product Specifications
Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the Program specifies a version number
of this License which applies to it and “any later version”, you have the option of following the
terms and conditions either of that version or of any later version published by the Free Software
Foundation. If the Program does not specify a version number of this License, you may choose
any version ever published by the Free Software Foundation.
10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free programs whose distribution
conditions are different, write to the author to ask for permission. For software which is
copyrighted by the Free Software Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we
sometimes make exceptions for this. Our decision will be guided by the two goals of preserving
the free status of all derivatives of our free software and of promoting the sharing and reuse of
software generally.
NO WARRANTY
11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY FOR
THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT WHEN
OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES
PROVIDE THE PROGRAM “AS IS” WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR
IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE
QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE PROGRAM
PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR
CORRECTION.
12. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING WILL
ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR
REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES,
INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING
OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO
LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY YOU
OR THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER
PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE
POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS
How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs If you develop a new program, and you want
it to be of the greatest possible use to the public, the best way to achieve this is to make it free
software which everyone can redistribute and change under these terms. To do so, attach the
following notices to the program. It is safest to attach them to the start of each source file to most
effectively convey the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least the “copyright”
line and a pointer to where the full notice is found. One line should give the program’s name and
an idea of what it does. Copyright (C) yyyy name of author.
This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify it under the terms of the GNU
General Public License as published by the Free Software Foundation; either version 2 of the
License, or (at your option) any later version.
144
General Product Specifications
This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful, but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY;
without even the implied warranty of MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR
PURPOSE. See the GNU General Public License for more details.
You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License along with this program; if
not, write to the Free Software Foundation, Inc., 51 Franklin Street, Suite 330, Boston, MA 02110,
USA.
Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail.
If the program is interactive, make it output a short notice like this when it starts in an interactive
mode:
Gnomovision version 69, Copyright (C) year name of author Gnomovision comes with
ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY; for details type `show w’. This is free software, and you are
welcome to redistribute it under certain conditions; type `show c’ for details.
The hypothetical commands `show w’ and `show c’ should show the appropriate parts of the
General Public License. Of course, the commands you use may be called something other than
`show w’ and `show c’; they could even be mouse-clicks or menu items--whatever suits your
program.
You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or your school, if any, to sign
a “copyright disclaimer” for the program, if necessary. Here is a sample; alter the names:
Yoyodyne, Inc., hereby disclaims all copyright interest in the program `Gnomovision’ (which
makes passes at compilers) written by James Hacker.

14 Supplement for Observed Test Sequence
Observed Test Sequence (OTS)
Observed Test Sequence options can only be configured using a DMS. The availability of
electronic configuration options will thus vary according to the data management software
utilized by your institution. Consult your system administrator.
The Observed Test Sequence* (OTS) function allows an observer (supervisor) to assess and
record an operator’s performance (e.g., for recertification purposes). The observer monitors an
operator during a test to check that the test is being performed according to the recommended
procedures. He/she then evaluates the performance and passes or fails the operator. This
assessment is saved together with the test result and any desired comments.
*Note: This feature comes “disabled” on the US Version of the meter system.
