INTRODUCTION
2. Working conditions
2.1. Environment
The Pentra 80 should be operated in an indoor location only. Operation at an altitude over 3000
meters (9800 feet) is not recommended. Instrument is designed to be safe for transient voltages
according to INSTALLATION CATEGORY II and POLLUTION DEGREE 2.
Please ask your ABX Diagnostics representative service center for any information about the operating
location when it does not comply with the recommended specifications.
2.2. Location
The Pentra 80 should be placed on a clean and leveled table or work station. Please note that the
Pentra 80, printer and reagents weigh approximately 40 kilograms (88 lbs). Avoid exposure to sunlight.
Proper ventilation requires that a space of at least 20 cm (8 inches) must be left behind the instrument.
2.3. Grounding
Proper grounding is required. Check that the wall ground (earth) plug is correctly connected to the
laboratory grounding electricity installation.
If there is no ground then use a ground stake. Current electricity Standards must be applied.
2.4. Humidity and temperature conditions
The Pentra 80 must function between 16 to 34°C (61 to 93°F). Maximum relative humidity 80% for
temperatures up to 31°C (88°F) decreasing linearly to 50% relative humidity at 40°C (104°F). If it is kept
at a temperature of less than 10°C (50°F), the instrument should be allowed to sit for an hour at the
correct room temperature before use.
2.5. Electromagnetic environment check
The Pentra 80 as been designed to produce less than the required level of electromagnetic
interferences in order to operate in conformity with its destination. The electromagnetic interferences
caused by the Pentra 80 are limited to a level allowing the correct operation of other instruments in
conformity with their destination.
In case of problems, check that the instrument is not placed in proximity of electromagnetic fields,
or short wave emissions (radars, X-rays, scanner, etc...).
2.6. Environment protection
Used accessories and consumables must be collected by a laboratory specialized in elimination
and recycling of this kind of material according to the legislation.

when neutralizing and disposing of waste.
5. Limitations
5.1. Maintenance
In Chapter 8. Maintenance, specific maintenance procedures are listed. The maintenance
procedures identified are mandatory for proper use and operation of the ABX PENTRA 80.
Failure to execute any of these recommended procedures may result in poor reliability of the
system.
5.2. Blood specimens
Verification of any abnormal test result (including flagged results or results outside of the normal
range) should be performed using reference methods or other standard laboratory procedures for
conclusive verification of the results. The sections below list known limitations of automated blood cell
counters which use the principles of impedance and light absorbance as principles of measurement.
5.3. Known interfering substances
WBC:
• White Blood Cells (Leukocytes):WBC results that exceed the linearity limits of the system will
require dilution of the blood sample (Leukemia sample followed by a leukopenia). Re-assaying the
diluted sample will help to obtain the correct assay value.
• Unlysed Red Cells - In some rare instances, the erythrocytes in the blood sample may not be
completely lysed. These non-lysed red blood cells may be detected on the WBC histogram with an
L1 alarm or as an elevated baseline on the side (leading edge) of the lymphocytes population. Nonlysed erythrocytes will cause a falsely elevated WBC count.
• Multiple myeloma - The precipitation of proteins in multiple myeloma patients may give high
WBC counts.
• Leukemia - A very low WBC count may result from this disease because of possible increased
fragility of the leukocytes leading to destruction of some of these cells during counting. These white
cell fragments will also interfere with the white cell differential parameters.
• Chemotherapy - Cytotoxic and immunosuppressive drugs may increase the fragility of the
leukocytes which may cause low WBC counts.
• Cryoglobulins - Increased levels of cryoglobulin that may be associated with myeloma,
carcinoma, leukemia, macroglobulinemia, lymphoproliferative disorders, metastic tumors,
autoimmune disorders, infections, aneurism, pregnancy, thromboembolic phenomena, diabetes,
etc, which can increase the WBC, RBC or Plt counts and the Hgb concentration. The specimen
must be warmed up to 37°C (99°F) in a bain marie for 30 minutes and analyzed again immediately
after (analyzer or manual method).
• Macrothrombocytes - in excessive numbers may affect and increase Leukocyte numeration.
8/10
SECTION 1
SPECIFICATIONS
RBC:
• Red Blood Cells (Erythrocytes): The red blood cell dilution contains all the formed elements in
the blood: erythrocytes, leukocytes and platelets. During erythrocytes counting (red blood cells),
platelets are not counted as their size falls below the minimum threshold.
• Agglutinated erythrocytes - May cause a low incorrect RBC count. Blood samples containing
the agglutinated red blood cells may be suspected by elevated MCH and MCHC values and shown
by examination of the stained blood film.
• Cold agglutinins - IgM immunoglobulins which are high in cold agglutinin disease may cause
lower RBC and Plt counts and increase MCV.
Hgb (Hemoglobin):
• Turbidity of the blood sample - Any number of physiological and/or therapeutic factors may
produce high incorrect Hgb results. To obtain accurate hemoglobin results when increased turbidity
of the blood sample occurs, determine the cause of the turbidity and follow the appropriate method
below:
• High WBC: An extremely high WBC will cause excessive light scatter. In these cases use
reference (manual) methods.The diluted sample should be centrifuged, and the supernatant fluid
measured with a spectrophotometer.
• High lipid concentration: A high concentration of lipids in the blood sample will give the plasma
a «milky» appearance. This condition can occur with hyperlipidemia, hyperproteinemia (as in
gammapathies) and hyperbilirubinemia. Accurate hemoglobin determinations can be achieved by
using reference (manual) methods and a plasma blank.
• Increased turbidity may also be seen in cases where the red blood cells are resistant to lysing.
This condition will cause an incorrect high Hgb result, but may be detected by observing the
abnormal MCH, MCHC values, and the increased baseline on the leading edge of the WBC
histogram. Erroneous hemoglobin results will cause the results of the MCH and MCHC to be
incorrect as well.
• Fetal bloods - The mixing of fetal and maternal bloods may produce a high inaccurate Hgb value.
Hct (Hematocrit):
• Red blood cells agglutination - May produce an inaccurate Hct and MCV values. Red blood cell
agglutination may be detected by observing abnormal MCH and MCHC values, as well as by
examination of the stained blood film In such cases, manual methods may be required to obtain an
accurate Hct value
MCV (Mean Corpuscular Volume):
• Red blood cell agglutination - May produce an inaccurate MCV value. Red blood cell
agglutination may be detected by observing abnormal MCH and MCHC values, as well as by
examination of the stained blood film. In such cases, manual methods may be required to obtain an
accurate MCV value.
• Excessive numbers of large platelets and/or the presence of an excessively high WBC count
may interfere with the accurate determination of the MCV value. In such cases, careful examination
of the stained blood film may reveal the error.
MCH (Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin):
• The MCH is determined according to Hgb value and the RBC count. The limitations listed for the
Hgb and RBC will have an effect on the MCH and may cause inaccurate values.
MCHC (Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin Concentration):
• The MCHC is determined according to the Hgb and Hct values. The limitations listed for the Hgb
and Hct will have an effect on the MCHC and may cause inaccurate values.
RDW (Red blood cell Distribution Width):
• The red blood cell distribution width is determined according to the RBC count.
• Nutritional deficiency or blood transfusion - May cause high RDW results due to iron and/or
cobalamin and /or folate deficiency.
Plt (Platelets):
• Very small erythrocytes (microcytes), erythrocyte fragments (schizocytes) and WBC fragments
may interfere with the proper counting of platelets and cause elevated Plt counts.
• Agglutinated erythrocytes - May trap platelets, causing an erroneously low platelet count. The
presence of agglutinated erythrocytes may be detected by observation of abnormal MCH and
MCHC values and by careful examination of the stained blood film.
• Giant platelets in excessive numbers - may cause a low inaccurate platelet count as these large
9/10
PENTRA 80 TECHNICAL MANUAL
RAA022B
platelets may exceed the upper threshold for the platelet parameter and are not counted.
• Chemotherapy - Cytotoxic and immunosuppressive drugs may increase the fragility of these
cells which may cause low Plt counts. Reference (manual) methods may be necessary to obtain an
accurate platelet count.
• Hemolysis - Hemolysed specimens contain red cell stroma which may increase platelet counts.
• A.C.D. blood - Blood anticoagulated with acid-citrate-dextrose may contain clumped platelet
which could decrease the platelet count.
• Platelet agglutination - Clumped platelets may cause a decreased platelet count and/or a high
WBC count. The specimen should be recollected in sodium citrate anticoagulant to ensure the
anticoagulated character depending on agglutination and reanalyzed only for the platelet count.
The final Plt result must be corrected for the sodium citrate dilution effect. However, these platelet
clumps do trigger flags L1, LL and LL1.
MPV (Mean Platelet Volume):
• Giant platelets that exceed the upper threshold of the Platelet parameter may not be counted as
platelets. Consequently, these larger platelets will not be included in the instrument’s calculation of
Mean Platelet Volume.
• Very small erythrocytes (microcytes), erythrocytic fragments (Schizocytes) and white blood cell
fragments may interfere with the proper counting and sizing of Platelets.
• Agglutinated erythrocytes - May trap Platelets, causing an incorrect MPV result. The presence
of agglutinated erythrocytes may be detected by observation of abnormal MCH and MCHC values
and by careful examination of the stained blood film.
• Chemotherapy - May also affect the sizing of Plts.
Blood samples collected in EDTA will not maintain a stable Mean Platelet Volume. Platelets
collected in EDTA swell depending on the time post-collection and storage temperature.
LYM# (Lymphocyte count absolute value), LYM% (Lymphocyte percentage):
• The Lymphocyte count is derived from the WBC count. The presence of erythroblasts, certain
parasites and erythrocytes that are resistant to lysis may interfere with an accurate LYM count.
Limitations listed for the WBC count pertain to the LYM # and % counts as well.
MON# (mononuclear cell count absolute), MON% (Mononuclear percentage):
• The mononuclear cell count absolute is derived from the WBC count. The presence of large
lymphocytes, atypical lymphocytes, blasts and an excessive number of basophils may interfere
with an accurate monocyte count.
• Limitations listed for the WBC count pertain to the MON # and % counts as well.
NEU# (neutrophil count absolute), NEU% (Neutrophil percentage):
• The neutrophils cell count is derived from the WBC cell count. The excessive presence of
eosinophils, metamyelocytes, myelocytes, promyelocytes, blasts and plasma cells may interfere
with an accurate neutrophils count.
EOS# (Eosinophil cell count absolute), EOS% (Eosinophil percentage):
• The eosinophil cell count is derived from the WBC cell count. The presence of abnormal granules
(degranulated areas, toxic granules...) may interfere with the eosinophil counting.
BAS# (Basophil cell count absolute), BAS% (Basophil percentage):
• The Basophil cell count is derived from the WBC cell count.

2.2. CBC detection principles
2.2.1. RBC/Plt
Measurement of impedance variation
generated by the passage of cells through a
calibrated micro aperture.
The specimen is diluted in an electrolytic
diluent (current conductor) and pulled through
the calibrated micro-aperture. Two electrodes
are placed on either side of the aperture. Diag.4:Impedance Principles
Electric current passes through the electrodes
continuously.
When the cell passes through the aperture,
electric resistance between the two electrodes
increases proportionately with the cell volume.
The generated impulses have a very low
voltage, which the amplification circuit
increases, so that the electronic system can
analyze them and eliminate the background
noise.

2.2.2. Hgb Measurement
The hemoglobin released by the lysis of the red blood cells combines with the potassium cyanide to
form the chromogenous cyanmethemoglobin compound. This compound is then measured through
the optical part of the first dilution chamber using a spectrophotometric technique at a wavelength of
550 nm.

Hct Measurement
The height of the impulse generated by the passage of a cell through the micro-aperture is directly
proportional to the volume of the analyzed RBC.
The hematocrit is measured as a function of the numeric integration of the MCV.
2.2.3. RDW calculation
The study of the RBC distribution detects erythrocyte anomalies linked to anisocytosis.
A Red Cell Distribution Width (RDW) will enable you to follow the evolution of the width of the curve
in relation to the cell number and average volume.
RDW = (K X SD) / MCV
With:
• K = system constant
• SD = Determined standard deviation according to statistical studies on cell distribution.
• MCV = Mean Corpuscular Volume of erythrocytes
6/12
SECTION 4
ANALYSIS CYCLE TECHNOLOGY
2.2.4. MCV, MCH, MCHC calculation
• MCV (Mean Cell Volume) is calculated directly from the RBC histogram.
• MCH (Mean Cell Hemoglobin) is calculated from the Hgb value and the RBC number.
• The mean hemoglobin weight in each RBC is given by the formula:
MCH (pg) = Hgb/RBC x 10
• MCHC (Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin Contained) is calculated according to the Hgb and Hct
values. Mean Hgb concentration in the total volume of RBC is given by the formula:
MCHC (g/dL) = Hgb/Hct x 100
2.2.5. MPV Measurement
The MPV (Mean Platelet Volume) is directly derived from the analysis of the platelet distribution
curve.
2.2.6. Pct Calculation
Thrombocrit is calculated according to the formula:
Pct% = Plt (103/µl) x MPV (µm3) / 10 000
2.2.7. PDW calculation
PDW (Platelet Distribution Width) is
calculated from the Plt histogram.
The PDW is represented by the width
of the curve between 15% of the
number of platelets starting from 2 fl
(S1), and 15% of the number of platelets
beginning with the variable top threshold
(S2).
Diag.7:PDW calculation
2.3. WBC and differential count
2.3.1. General principles
The WBC count is carried out twice by two different sensors:
• In the BASO count chamber at the same time as the BASOS count,
• In the optical chamber during the acquisition of the LMNE matrix.
The reference count is the one obtained in the WBC and BASO count chamber.

PENTRA 80 TECHNICAL MANUAL
RAA022B
2.3.2. BASO/WBC Count
Detection principle is the same as for RBC.
Differentiation betwen BASOs and other leukocytes is obtained by means of the BASOLYSE II specific
lysing action.
All the WBCs are counted between the electrical
threshold <0> threshold <BA3>. The basophils are
located from threshold <BA2> to threshold
<BA3>.

ANALYSIS CYCLE TECHNOLOGY
2.3.3. LMNE Matrix
The WBC and Differential count are based
on 3 essential principles:
• The double hydrodynamic sleeving
«DHSS» (ABX DIAGNOSTICS patent)
• The volume measurement (impedance
changes).
• The measurement of transmitted light
with 0° angle, which permits a response
according to the internal structure of each
element and its absorbance by means of
incident light diffusion.
25µl of whole blood is delivered to the
LMNE chamber in a flow of EOSINOFIX. This
reagent lyses the RBC, stabilizes the WBC in
their native forms and stains the eosinophil
nuclei with a specific coloration.
The solution is then stabilized with diluent
and transferred to the measuring chamber.
Each cell is measured both in absorbance
(cytochemistry) and resistivity (volume).

Results
From these measurements, a matrix is drawn up with volumes on the X-axis and optical
transmission on the Y-axis. The study of the matrix image permits the clear differentiation of 4 out of 5
leukocyte populations. As a matter of fact, the basophil population is very small compared to the
others.
MONOCYTES: The monocytes, being cells with large kidney shaped nuclei and a large nongranular cytoplasm, will neither be scattered nor absorb a large amount of light. They will therefore be
positioned in the lower part of the optical axis but clearly to the right of the volume axis.
LYMPHOCYTES: The lymphocytes being small with regular shape, are positioned in the lower part
of both the optical axis and volume axis. Normal lymphocyte populations are generally observed with a
good volume homogeneity. The far left side of the lymphocyte zone should normally be empty, but
when small lymphocytes are present, population may exist in this area. The presence of platelet
aggregates is detected by a distribution pattern that moves from the origin of the matrix (background
zone) into the lymphocyte zone. The NRBCs with their cytoplasmic membranes lysed like the
erythrocytes, will have their nuclei situated to the far left side of the lymphocyte zone.

SECTION 4
ANALYSIS CYCLE TECHNOLOGY
EOSINOPHILS: With reagent action on cytoplasmic membranes, the leukocytes keep their native
size and only eosinophils are colored for optical separation. Eosinophils will be situated in the upper
part of the optical Y-axis due to their strong absorbance qualities and their size, which is nearly
equivalent to large neutrophils.
NEUTROPHILS: The neutrophils, with their cytoplasmic granules and their generally segmented
nuclei, will scatter light depending on their morphological complexity. A hypersegmented neutrophil will
give an increased optical response with respect to a young neutrophil population which will be in the
upper position of the optical axis depending on the presence of segmentation and/or granules.
Additional parameters: LIC (Large Immature Cells) and ALY (Atypical Lymphocytes) complete the
panel available on the matrix.
The immature granulocytic cells are detected by their larger volumes and by the presence of
granules which increase the intensity of the scattered light. Therefore, cells such as metamyelocytes
will be found clearly to the right of the neutrophils and nearly at the same level. Myelocytes and
promyelocytes will be found in saturation position on the far right of the matrix. These last three
populations will be counted as LIC (Large Immature Cells) and their given results are included in the
neutrophil value. The blast cells will be found generally to the right of the monocytes, and, as such, will
increase the LIC count. Small blasts will be found between the normal lymphocytes and monocytes.
Platelets and debris from erythrocyte lysis represent the background noise population located in the
lower left area of the matrix. Most of the population partition thresholds are fixed and give the limits of
the morphological normality of leukocytes. Changes in the morphology of a population will be
expressed on the matrix by a shifting of the corresponding population.
A Blast alarm is generated from increased counts within the LIC area, this is correlated with Blast
detection on the Basophil curve.
Large lymphocytes are detected in the ALY (Atypical Lymphocytes) zone, where reactive lymphoid
forms, stimulated lymphocytes and plasmocytes are also to be found.

1. Maintenance
1.1. Introduction
Customer maintenance has to be carried out according to the recommended frequency chart
table and after having attended an ABX approved customer training course.
The system warranty may be affected if damage occurs after a non trained technician
intervenes or if replaced spare parts and consumables do not come from an ABX approved
origin.
1.2. Daily customer maintenance
No special adjustment or maintenance has to be done on your equipment if the recommended
startup and shutdown procedures are explicitly respected.
See User’s manual for daily rinsing and cleaning of the system.
1.3. Weekly customer maintenance
An overall check for cleanliness of the system is recommended every week. All traces of blood or
reagent have to be wiped off as soon as possible using a piece of cloth and distilled water.
Never use solvent or abrasive cleaning to clean the system.
1.4. Maintenance table
Pentra 80 maintenance is scheduled on 3 different maintenance kits. The maintenance schedule
depends on the number of cycles per day, follow the chart table to know kit part number to be used.

3. Maintenance procedures
Maintenance and adjustments required for Pentra 80 are divided into procedures according to
the concerned assemblies. This should make any update easier as all interventions can be done
with the corresponding procedure on its own.
Each procedure has to be read entirely before starting intervention.
Procedures must be performed on a clean instrument.
If the instrument is suspected not to be perfectly clean, perform a concentrated cleaning.
Disposable gloves should be worn.

INSTALLATION
1. Working conditions
1.1. Environment
The Pentra 80 should be operated in an indoor location only. Operation at an altitude over 3000
meters (9800 feet) is not recommended. Instrument is designed to be safe for transient voltages
according to INSTALLATION CATEGORY II and POLLUTION DEGREE 2.
Please ask your ABX Diagnostics representative service center for any information about the operating
location when it does not comply with the recommended specifications.
1.2. Location
The Pentra 80 should be placed on a clean and leveled table or work station. Please note that the
Pentra 80, printer and reagents weigh approximately 40 kilograms (88 lbs). Avoid exposure to
sunlight. Proper ventilation requires that a space of at least 20 cm (8 inches) must be left behind the
instrument.
1.3. Grounding
Proper grounding is required. Check that the wall ground (earth) plug is correctly connected to the
laboratory grounding electricity installation.
If there is no ground then use a ground stake. Current electricity Standards must be applied.
1.4. Humidity and temperature conditions
The Pentra 80 must function between 16 to 34°C (61 to 93°F). Maximum relative humidity 80% for
temperatures up to 31°C (88°F) decreasing linearly to 50% relative humidity at 40°C (104°F). If it is
kept at a temperature of less than 10°C (50°F), the instrument should be allowed to sit for an hour at
the correct room temperature before use.
1.5. Electromagnetic environment check
The Pentra 80 as been designed to produce less than the required level of electromagnetic
interferences in order to operate in conformity with its destination. The electromagnetic
interferences caused by the Pentra 80 are limited to a level allowing the correct operation of other
instruments in conformity with their destination.
In case of problems, check that the instrument is not placed in proximity of electromagnetic fields,
or short wave emissions (radars, X-rays, scanner, etc...).
1.6. Environment protection
Used accessories and consumables must be collected by a laboratory specialized in elimination
and recycling of this kind of material according to the legislation.

PENTRA 80 TECHNICAL MANUAL
PROCEDURE
1. Repeatability
This procedure must be performed on a clean instrument.
If the instrument is suspected to not be perfectly clean, perform a Concentrated cleaning.
The measurement of repeatability is based on the set of 10 results obtained from the consecutive
analyses of the same blood sample.
CBC or DIF type analyses can be invoked (combination is not supported) with a limit of 35 results
per test. Beyond the 35th result, data generated from new analysis will be disregarded.
To remain undisturbed the CV calculation, the potential results containing defaults generated
directly from the analyses channels are rejected. In that case, a dialog box informs the user.
From Quality Assurance Menu menu enter Within run menu and run several samples in DIF
mode. Check that obtained coefficients of variation are within the following limits.

2. Calibration
Calibration function is used to determine the values of the calibration coefficients to calibrate the
instrument with known result samples.
From Quality Assurance Menu press the Calibration button.
Select the calibrator lot number you are going to use for calibration in the left area of the window.
If the calibrator is not listed create it.
From the Calibration Target menu check target values are correct, if not press Edit button, beep
your current calibrator barcode (or type in the target values supplied with calibrator leaflet in the
reserved fields), then confirm by pressing Ok button. Exit the Target Values by pressing Return
button.
Prepare the calibrator according to the specific instructions detailed in the calibrator package insert
(temperature, mixing...).
Press the Stat mode button, open the calibrator vial and install it the tube holder.
Close the door.
When the tube holder opens, remove and recap the vial.
Risk of erroneous results if the calibrator is not continously mixed between each analysis.
In order to obtain a correct calibration it is recommended to run at least 5 calibrator samplings.
When the analysis cycle ends, the result is displayed on the result grid. Run the calibrator 4 more
times.

In the event that the result shows an analysis fault or reject, the result is not stored. An error
message advising of rejection is diplayed.
To discard a result from the statistical calculation, click into the Sel column the checked box to
remove the result from the statistical calculation.
If the coefficient of variation is within the limits and the percentage difference between the target
and the mean value is less than 20, instrument allows an automatic calibration. Press Automatic
calculation button to calculate new coefficients then Ok button to confirm and apply new
coefficients of calibration.
Sometimes you may have to use the forced calibration to enter new coefficients when
instrument is very far from its normal range. A warning message shall request confirmation to
continue, validate then perform a control of the instrument.
3. Control
Run several controls to check and validate the calibration. When using DIFFTROL control blood,

3. Barcode configuration
3.1. Typology and Ckeck Digit
Several standards of barcode labels with different encoding are available. According to the model of
barcode used by the laboratory, it is necessary to define the settings of the read characters.
Following, the barcode standards the most used in laboratories:
• Code 2 of 5 interleaved
• Code 39
• Code 128
• Codabar
Among those typologies, some can be used with or without Check Digit. The Check Digit is an
added encoding digit, located on the right part of the code, and corresponds to an algorithm
returned value that checks the integrity of the barcode reading.
The Check Digit is optional and is defined by the administrator of the barcode label edition
software.
3.2. Barcode configuration
Previously to barcode configuration, it is necessary to know the barcode models used in the
laboratory and to note the Typology and the Check Digit exploitation.
Exemple:
1- Note the label models used in the laboratory as shown:
Laboratory XXX
Typology
Check digit
Code 2 of 5 interleaved
Code 128
Codabar
No
Yes
Yes
2- Log in as «Technician» while starting the Pentra 80 application.
3- Open the «Technician/Others» screen (See Diag.3“Barcode configuration screen”, page 4) and
perform the setting adjustment as follows:
• Open the tab 1.
• Select the «Code type = 2/5 Interleaved».
• Check the «Check Digit None» box.
• Confirm pressing «Accept values».
Diag.3Barcode configuration screen
4/6
INTERNAL BARCODE ADJUSTMENT
RAS343B
• open the tab 2.
• Select the «Code type = Code 128».
• Check the «Check Digit = Not transmitted» box.
• Confirm pressing «Accept values».
• And then open the tab 3.
• Select the «Code type = Codabar».
• Check the «Check Digit = Not transmitted» box.
• Confirm pressing «Accept values».
3.3. Settings parameters meaning
• Code Type: This parameter is set according to the barcode typology used in the laboratory. If
several barcode labels are used, each one must be defined in one of the tab provided in the screen.
• Code length: the recommended value is «01-16».
• Reading direction: can not be configured, it means that the label is readable whatever its
position on the tube (right way or reverse way).
• Check Digit: This parameter is set according to the barcode typology used in the laboratory.
• None: must be checked if the barcode model is «without Check Digit».
• Transmit: must not be used.
• Not transmitted: must be checked if the barcode model is «with Check Digit».
• Transmit Start/Stop: must be set on «Disabled».
• Codabar Start/Stop Char.: disabled when the «Transmit Start/Stop» option is disabled.
3.4. Troubleshooting
1- Labels are never read:
- Check the if the label is readable.
- Check there is white gap of at least 3/4 millimeters before the first bar and after the last one.
- Check that the typology of the label used has been defined in a tab of the «Technician/Others»
screen.
- Check that the label is with «Check Digit» and that it has been defined as «Check Digit: Not
transmitted».
2- Labels are read, but an added digit appears on the right side:
Label includes «Check Digit», but the option has been defined on «None».
