Adjusting the Probe Height for a LABType and LABScreen Plate
(Must be set before the 1st assay is run)
Note: Each Protocol is created with a plate type built into the protocol based on the assay type.
A plate type must be saved for both the LABType Assay and the LABScreen Assay Protocols.
Note: The probe height should be re-adjusted and saved for all plate types each time the probe
is removed and replaced in the unit.
Note: The probe height should be adjusted before the first use of a new reading tray type/brand/
lot.
Example: If the type of plate being used to run either the LABType or LABScreen Assay is
changed, the LABType Plate and/or the LABScreen Plate must be re-adjusted and saved
based on the probe height for the new plate. (Place the new plate in the unit, select the Plate
from the Plate Name pull down menu, and click Auto Adjust Height.
The new height will be automatically updated to the selected plate).
1. Refer to Appendix A: Automatic Sample Probe Height Adjustment for instructions on
adjusting the probe height.
2. When naming the plate, name the plate (exactly): LABType Plate
3. Place the tray that will be used to read LABType assays onto the XY platform of the
LABScan3D unit.
4. Click Auto Adjust Height
. The height will automatically save to the Plate Name.
5. Create a new plate, when naming the plate, name the plate (exactly): LABScreen Plate
6. Place the tray that will be used to read LABScreen assays onto the XY platform of the
LABScan3D unit.
Note: If using a filter bottom plate, place a large (5.08mm) alignment disk into the selected
well; for other hard bottom plates, no disk or metal ball is required.

Note: In order to edit Patient IDs/Sample IDs after a batch has completed, see Appendix G: Edit Patient ID/Sample ID
Notes regarding the Sample ID Import List
Note: A Sample ID Import list must be a .txt file created in notepad (or equivalent) with one
Sample ID per line.
Note: The 2 line heading that was required in Luminex IS2.3 Sample ID Import list is no longer
required, however, if present, the heading does not affect the Sample IDs imported to the batch
(LX100IS Patient List, [Accession#, Dilution Factor]).
Note: The number of samples in the Sample ID Import list must match the number of
Unknowns selected. If the Sample ID Import list is longer than the number of Unknowns
selected, only the Sample IDs equaling the number of Unknowns on the plate will be imported.
If the Sample ID Import list is shorter than the number of Unknowns selected, the excess
Unknowns will still be labeled as “UnknownX.”

Appendix A: Automatic Sample Probe Height Adjustment
Note: Each Protocol is created with a plate type built into the protocol based on the assay type.
A plate type must be saved for both the LABType Assay and the LABScreen Assay Protocols.
Note: The probe height should be re-adjusted and saved for all plate types each time the probe
is removed and replaced in the unit.
Note: The probe height should be adjusted before the first use of a new reading tray type/brand/
lot.

d. Power on the computer and LABScan3D Unit.
e. Verify that the Firmware is up to date – check by selecting the Maintenance tab and then select System Info on the left.
.
6. System Pressurization
Normal air and sheath pressure readings are 6-9 psi while the compressor is running. If the system is not pressurizing properly, verify the following.
a..Check inside the instruments for leaking fluid. If large leaks are present, contact Luminex Technical Support.
b. Make sure the tubing from the sheath fluid box is securely tightened.
c. Disconnect and reconnect the sheath and waste lines to the unit. The connections should click when they are inserted, signaling that they are .secured. Also make sure the fittings are not cracked.
d. Make sure the sample tubing is tightly connected above the sample needle, below the blue light.
e. When the Luminex analyzer is turned on, does the compressor engage? The low humming engine sound at first and then it turns off automatically after the instrument pressurizes. If not, contact Luminex Technical Support.
f. If the compressor is engaging but pressure is not building within the system, disconnect the sheath and waste lines from the Luminex analyzer. Run a prime and notice whether air pressure builds. If so, air must be leaking from the lines somewhere outside of the Luminex analyzer. Contact Luminex Technical Support.

Appendix H: Maintaining Fluids
1. Periodically monitor sheath fluid levels. Replace the sheath fluid container as needed as well
as the waste fluid container.
Note: If the LABScan3D instrument operates with an empty sheath fluid container, the
lack of sheath fluid may interrupt a sample acquision and prevent further data from being
collected.
CAUTION: Use only xMAP Sheath Fluid or another Luminex-approved sheath fluid. Use
of any other sheath fluid constitutes improper use and can void the warranty provided by
Luminex and/or its authorized partner.
2. Optimally, the waste line should be routed to a laboratory drain or waste container.
a. If a waste container is used, monitor waste fluid levels periodically. The volume of the
waste container should be at least as large as the volume of the sheath container.
b..Do not allow the waste fluid container to overflow. Empty the waste fluid container each
time the sheath fluid container is replace or filled.
c. Place the waste fluid container at least three feet below the surface on which the
LABScan3D instrument rests. Do not place the waste fluid container on top of the instrument.
Do not move the waste line vertically while the LABScan3D instrument is running. Contact
Luminex Technical Support before relocating the waste fluid container or rerouting the waste
line. The line may be moved temporarily for cleaning and maintenance.
3. To replace the sheath fluid container:
a. Disconnect both the sheath fluid line and the waste fluid line from each of their
corresponding containers. (Careful not to touch the sheath fluid line, except for the part that
resides outside the sheath fluid container).
b. Place the sheath fluid line into a new container of sheath fluid.
c. Move the empty sheath fluid container to become the new waste fluid container or discard
the waste from the waste fluid container in accordance with all local, state, federal, and
country specific biohazard handling regulations, and replace again for use as the waste
container.
d. The sheath line in should be secured tightly to the sheath container.
e. Prime the LABScan3D instrument at least 3 times.
WARNING: Waste fluid can contain bio-hazardous infectious agents. Follow appropriate
biosafety procedures and use personal protective equipment such as gloves, gowns,
laboratory coats, face shields (or mask and eye protection), respirators, and ventilation
devices.
