Responsible Entity Beckman Coulter Australia Pty Ltd
Reason/Issue The DxH 800, DxH 600, and DxH Slidemaker Stainer may fail to notify the user of warnings or error conditions for low or depleted reagent conditions, Daily Checks failures, LIS disconnection, and Printer failures at:

· The Alert Status icon(s) on the System Manager
· The audible alarm at the System Manager
· The instrument beacon on the Specimen Processing Module or Slidemaker Stainer

The failure may occur when the System Manager application is restarted or powered OFF/ON.

When the failure occurs the user may not notice the need to change reagents before depletion, instrument operation will continue and, information about reagent levels shown on the Supplies screen, results on the Daily Checks screen, and the status of the LIS connection and Printer on the System Status screen are correct.
