  1. I just answered this question. My Score FAIL  
  2. Has anyone performed the new software update for the Vision analyzer? How did it go?
  3. Does anyone have a problem with mold growth in diluent 2 that is being rotated on and off the Vision analyzer. We are currently loading a Diluent 2 and Diluent 2+ set each morning and rotating the set back to the refrigerator after 24 hours on board. Due to low usage after 3 weeks we have mold growth
  4. How long does it take for you to use up a bottle of diluent 2 or do you discard any unused after a certain time period
  5. Has anyone performed the recently released software update and are you having any issues since the update or when performing the update? Does anyone have a problem with mold growth in diluent 2 that you rotate on/off the analyzer? Do you rotate on and off every 24 hours or more frequently?
  6. Daily Reagent QC requirements

    We were cited by CMS for not having negative control for Anti A, Anti B, Referencecells and Selectogens 1-3. We had just had our AABB/CAP inspection with no issues and felt we followed Immucor package insert. I would add negative QC because it is simple and I could not win the battle

    Made my day today to see the lights, popped a few bulbs for good measure. Merry Christmas to all and thank you for great discussions!!!!!
