xPONENT 3.1:
What setup parameters are required on xPONENT 3.1 software to function with
HLA Fusion?


The run files for each well in a batch by default are not converted and exported as a CSV
Output file. The option to convert and export CSV Output file must be selected under the
CSV Options menu. Refer to the xPONENT 3.1 Software Manual.
To produce the CSV Output file statistics required by HLA Fusion, it is important to select
the “Include Advanced Statistics” option under the CSV Options menu.
Are there any procedural differences involved with xPONENT 3.1?

Unlike LDS 1.7/IS 2.3, after a batch is complete, the CSV Output files are by default
generated in a different directory from run files.
o
o


Run Files - C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Luminex\xPONENT31\Batch
CSV Output files - C:\My Sessions
Per session, two folders with run files are generated; for LABType HD analysis, HLA Fusion
requires the folder with the appropriate session name that ends in “_rcsv”. These run files
folders must be relocated from the default directory (see above) and placed into a new
directory designated by the end-user. Only one designated directory is required to input run
file folders from every session.
To setup the directory pathway for these relocated run file folders in HLA Fusion, go to
Utility>General Settings>Paths>Run Files, and select the folder designated by the end user.
(See the screen image below)
NOTE: Some of the above tasks require supervisor user privileges. You may have to verify with
your supervisor that these tasks have been completed.


Do I Need to Install the SQL Server Database Myself?
The HLA Fusion software prompts you to install a default, SQL 2005 Express, during the
installation if there is no FUSION database instance on your computer. You can ignore it if
you want to install your own copy of SQL Server. To run HLA Fusion software, you do not
require any more than what MSDE SQL Express provides (which comes bundled with HLA
Fusion installer).


Server, Client or Standalone Database Installation?
The installation mode you should select depends on the configuration of computers that will be
accessing the HLA Fusion database that you are creating or connecting to:

Client install: select if more than one machine will be accessing the database in a network
environment, but your machine does not actually store the HLA Fusion database. You will
need to connect to a server and an HLA Fusion database on another machine.

Server install: select if more than one machine will be accessing the HLA Fusion database
in a network environment, and your machine stores the database. Other machines will
connect to you and share the database

Standalone install: select if your machine is the only computer storing and accessing the
HLA Fusion database.
Back to the Top

What is the .NET 2.0/3.0 Framework, and is it necessary?
Yes, it is necessary.
Reason it is needed: Microsoft .NET Framework is intended to be used by most new
applications created for the Windows platform, such as HLA Fusion. .NET has a large library
of pre-coded solutions to common program requirements, and manages the execution of
software programs written specifically for the framework.
How to install it: HLA Fusion software requires .NET 2.0 version and it is included in the
HLA Fusion installation package. Most of the Microsoft operating systems come with the
.NET framework. The HLA Fusion software will detect and install the .NET framework if
needed during installation.
Back to the Top

Do I need to uninstall previous versions of HLA Fusion before I install the latest
version?
You do not have to uninstall previous versions of HLA Fusion before a new version
installation. Separate folders will be created during installation to allow the easy identification
of the different HLA Fusion versions you have installed on your system or network.

Fusion Database
When would you want to detach a Database?
If you wish to move a database file to another location, for disk space considerations or
other reasons, you must first detach it from HLA Fusion. Then, you can relocate it and link
(attach) to its new location. You may also simply no longer want to have HLA Fusion
Software linked to a particular database—if the database is no longer current or relevant, but
you do not want to delete.
Back to the Top

Why would you need to attach a database?
Use Attach database to link to any HLA Fusion .mdf database file to which you are not
currently linked. If you are using Detach and Attach database to move a database, then
once you have detached the database and relocated it, you must attach it again.
NOTE: The database you are attaching must reside on the selected server.
Back to the Top

Why am I getting an error message during a database backup that ‘desktop’ is not a
valid destination?
If your logon settings for the FUSION instance of SQL Server, are not set for logging on as a
local system account, then you will not be allowed to back up the database to your desktop.
Do the following to change your log on settings:
1. Close the Fusion Database Utility.
2. Select Start > Settings > Control Panel.
3. Double-click Administrative Tools.
4. Double-click Services.
5. Right-click on the item SQL Server (FUSION), and select Properties.
6. Click the Log On tab, and make sure it has the following settings:
7. Exit out of the SQL Server (FUSION) Properties dialog box, and open the Fusion
Database Utility. You can now store a database backup on a local destination.

How do I backup and restore my data?
Use the following HLA Fusion Database Utility options, completing the related fields as necessary:
 Backup Database Makes a copy of the specified database to the local drive of the computer
or server. Can be set up to run automatically daily, weekly or monthly. Can only be performed
from the computer/server on which the database resides.
 Restore Database Can restore a database backup to any existing or new database—except
for the current database. You can replace the current database with a backup database by
using the Merge Database option. (NOTE: the backup file used must have a .bak file
extension.)
Back to the Top

How often should I back up my data?
You should back up your database whenever advised to by the HLA Fusion application or
documentation. In addition, you should establish regular and frequent database backups, which can
be automated through the Backup Database utility. The frequency depends on the how often and
how much new data is generally added to your HLA Fusion databases—base this on how much data
you are willing to replace or lose if a database becomes unusable.
Back to the Top

How do I migrate the database from SQLExpress to SQL 2005 Server?
Open the HLA Fusion Database Utility and perform the following database tasks:
1. Back up the SQLExpress database.
2. Restore the database you backed up on the SQL 2005 server.
Select the newly restored data base as the current one.

Reference Files
How do I update the following reference files—NMDP, Serological Equivalence, and
Catalog Files?
These files can be updated one of two ways:


From the HLA Fusion or product home page, click the Download link.
Select HLA Fusion menu option Utilities > Update Reference > Update Reference File.
Select the type of reference file you want to update and the means for updating it—from a directory
on your computer or network, by auto-update, or by going to the One Lambda (OLI) website.
Back to the Top

How often should I update the following reference files—NMDP, Serological
Equivalence, and Catalog Files?
 NMDP files should be updated according to your lab’s policy.
 Serological Equivalence files should be updated when new nomenclature is added to catalog
files, and when you see _0 for serological analysis assignments.
 Catalog files should be updated when new nomenclature is used.

Why aren’t the catalogs I just downloaded displaying on the product home page?
If the current page does not show updated information upon modification or downloads, go back to
the main Home page, and then return to the product home page to see the change.
Back to the Top

How does HLA Fusion determine the most recent available catalog?
To determine which catalog is the most recent available, HLA Fusion looks first at the lot number
and then the revision number. An updated lot number gets flagged as the most recent version of a
catalog, even if the revision number of the previous lot has been updated since you last downloaded
catalogs.



Why didn’t a column in my allele frequency file get imported?
If the header for the column of any allele frequency file you import is empty, the entire column is not
imported into Fusion, regardless of any other data it contains. If columns are duplicated, Fusion
gives you an error message and does not import the allele frequency file.

Analysis
What things should I do first before I analyze a session or sample in HLA Fusion?
Verify that you or your supervisor has done the following before analyzing any sessions or samples:
 Download the 2010 January Nomenclature, or later, Serology Equivalent file before you
import catalogs or attempt to analyze sessions/samples.
 Make sure your collation of SQL Server matches the collation of any client instances. If you
are not certain, please verify with your system/database administrator.
 Make sure you have the latest catalog files, as well as NMDP code, local code (if used), or
serology equivalent reference files before you analyze. You can download or update
catalogs from the Download link on the Product Home page.
 View and modify global product configuration settings before starting analysis. Global
settings are displayed and be can be modified on the Product Home Page or through the
Utilities menu. Global settings apply across all newly imported sessions.
 Save time importing CSV files by verifying that the default URLs and paths are pointing to
the locations where these files are commonly stored on your system or network. These
settings can also be modified in the General Configuration section of the Home page.
 If using xPONENT 3.1 Luminex software, refer to the xPONENT 3.1 section above to
identify things needed to be done prior to analysis on HLA Fusion.
NOTE: Some of the above tasks require supervisor user privileges. You may have to verify
with your supervisor that these tasks have been completed.

Why isn’t the check box for applying w632 normalization displaying during import of
LABScreen w632 CSV files?
Make sure that you have imported LABScreen Class I Single Antigen catalogs before you import
w632 sessions or samples. If you import the catalog(s) after the import of w632 CSV files, then you
may have to return to the HLA Fusion Home page and then go back to the LABScreen session
summary screen before the w632 normalization check box is displayed.

How do I import HD files?
If you are importing an HD output file, make sure you select it from the same directory that contains
all the run files and the run-index file that were output from the Luminex machine into the session
folder (i.e., when you move the session folder files from the Luminex machine to your local or
network drive, make certain you keep all the files that were output from the session together, and do
not separate the ouput.csv file from the other associated run and run index files).

Why can’t I select any sample configuration settings for Demographic Information?
If the Demographic Information option is not active in a sample-level configuration menu, it means
you need to import an allele frequency input file. Use the menu options Utilities > Update
Reference > Demographic/Allele Frequency.

Why do I get an error that states “Trimmed Mean values are missing” and how do I
resolve it?
This error occurs when Luminex is run to create a .csv, but the trimmed mean section was not
checked before the run was made. Run the Luminex again, making certain to select the option for
the trimmed mean section.

What does A_0 A_0 mean in LABType and SSP Analysis screens?
The A_0 A_0 in LABType and SSP Analysis means there is no serology equivalent for the
corresponding alleles. You need to download and import the latest Serology Equivalent file from the
One Lambda website. You can update this file through HLA Fusion, using the Download link on any
of the home pages, or the Utilities > Update Reference > Update Reference File menu option.

Why do I get the following error message when I try to import an output file?
The .csv file you are attempting to import is open or is being accessed by someone else.
Back to the Top

Why is the Date field yellow on the Session Import window?
HLA Fusion converts Luminex-generated CSV file data, such as date and time, to the local regional
code if a regional code is specified in the CSV file. (A regional code cannot be specified for CSV files
created with Luminex software version 2.2 or earlier.) If the first date field is highlighted yellow, it
indicates a regional code mismatch. In this case, it is recommended that you use the drop-down
selector in the second date field to choose the appropriate date, taking into consideration regional
date format differences.


Does the software allow me to delete LABType or Micro SSP data at the sample
level?
Yes. If you have permission to delete data, you can use the Manage Data window to delete
LABType or Micro SSP samples.
NOTE: You cannot delete combined samples, or sessions containing combined samples unless you
first delete the individual samples that were used to create the combined analysis.

My Sero Code is a dash; so why is it recorded as a blank in the Patient Results?
Sero codes that are either a dash or a blank are both recorded as a blank in the Patient Results
Assignment for LABType and Micro SSP analysis.


Why don’t I see the serology value I entered for a patient?
For all manual serology entries, you must precede the value with the locus. For example, if a locus A
has a value of 23, you must enter A23.

Comma delimited format
Each field is separated by commas. The use of quotes around a field is optional, and is required only
if the contents of the field use a comma, which could confuse field separation. This file lists (in this
order):
ShipmentLoc, SampleIDName, SampleType (AB, DR or AB/DR), TurnaroundTime
(14, 21 or 14AB/21DR), DCN
example line:
"1","12","0287-7867-8","AB/DR","14AB/21DR","074"
Tab delimited format
Each field is separated by a tab. This file lists (in this order):
ShipmentLoc, SampleIDName, SampleType (AB, DR or AB/DR), TurnaroundTime
(14, 21 or 14AB/21DR), DCN
example line:
1,12,0287-7867-8,AB/DR,14AB/21DR,074
SDF format
Each field is separated by commas. This file lists (in this order):
BoxSlot, DonarID, SampleType (AB, DR or AB/DR), TurnaroundTime (14, 21 or 14AB/21DR),

Reports
Why can’t I view my HLA Fusion Reports?
To view reports, your computer must have some form of printer driver installed. If you do not have a
printer driver installed, you can download a free copy of PDF Distiller from Adobe.com, or Microsoft
Office Document Image Writer from Microsoft.com. In addition, you can print and export these
reports from the analysis or batch summary window.


Is there a limitation on the number of characters (string size) for HLA Fusion
Reports?
Yes. SQL 2000 allows a maximum of 8000 characters. However, SQL 2005 and 2008 do not have
any string size limitations. We recommend that you use SQL 2005/2008 if you are using SQL 2000
and you observe allele pairs in reports being chopped off.


Why did I receive a module timed out message when I tried to load samples for
reporting ?
Check your date range settings through the Find or the Reports window. If you have set a lengthy
date range, the system may time out due to an attempt to retrieve a large amount of data.
Back to the Top

Do archived sessions or samples appear on the Reports window?
No. Archived sessions and samples are not displayed on the Reports window. You will need to make
these active again before they can be selected for inclusion in a report.


Do samples excluded from analysis appear on the Reports window?
No. Excluded samples are not displayed on the Reports window. Samples must be included in
analysis to be included in reports.
Back to the Top

Why is my data missing from the sessions/samples list in the Reports module?
The data you are seeking is probably not within the two-week window of time that is currently
selected in the Session Date field. Revise the date settings to include the timeframe for the data you
want to see.


How are items like sample IDs sorted in reports?
Sample IDs, Patient IDs, Well IDs, Alleles, Serology, and so forth are sorted alphanumerically in
reports, just as they are on other HLA Fusion forms and lists.

Why is the Report Designer Program in the Reports Module not working?
You must have Supervisor level privileges to use the Reports Designer. In addition, please ensure
that the Crystal (now SAP) Report Designer software is installed on your computer. If yes, please
locate the designer executable (.exe) file path and update the HLA Fusion configuration file,
OneLambda.Fusion.Interface.exe.config, with the correct path. By default the configuration
file is set to work with Crystal Designer version XI. Please also refer to the “Reports” chapter of the
HLA Fusion User Manual.

Why doesn’t my computer recognize the barcode on Molecular/Antibody Custom
reports?
For Molecular Custom or Antibody Custom reports, you must make sure the Free 3 of 9 Extended
font is installed on your computer—otherwise, the barcode will not be recognized. If needed, you can
download this font for free at http://www.free-barcode-font.com/ .
