Reason

The data button, also called registration button, indicates an incorrect expiration date of 30-Nov-2020, while the box barrel labels capture the correct expiration date of 30-Nov-2019. If you rely on the system software to track the expiration of the kit, it would allow the reagent to be used past its real expiration.
