Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics has identified two software (SW) issues in ADVIA Centaur XPT Software Versions 1.5.1 and below. These issues are as follows:

  1. ADVIA Centaur XPT SW version 1.4 and below—The system reaches the maximum number ofcalibrator definitions allowed by the software, and the operator is unable to scan newcalibration definitions or delete old/expired definitions. A similar condition could occur whenscanning a new assay calibrator card where the lot number information already exists in thedatabase.
  2. ADVIA Centaur XPT SW version 1.5 and 1.5.1—The system can sporadically produce an errorcondition during the Automatic or Manual Daily Cleaning Procedure (DCP). Below are the threeerror conditions that can be observed with this issue:
    • 01 302 01 017—A sensor is not detected in allowed range during the move ofluminometer rotor.
    • 01 600 10 01—Luminometer is offline.
    • 01 302 02 05—Motor busy error during the move of the waste probe.
