2. Replace tubing on Flowcell on Reader unit. Replace tubing from cannula to mixing valve on Diluter module. Light bulb will be checked for stability on Spectrophotometer and replaced if necessary. All other tubing will be inspected and replaced, if necessary, at this time except for Calibrated loop tubing.

3. Check reader for function by running a 160-tube normal assay with water. By setting the spectrophotometer to 100%. T, the unit should complete the test with a drift of not more than two points.

4. Rebuild valve on Diluter. Replace port faces, inspect 4-way sliders and replace if worn. Inspect and replace any damaged bushings or tube end fittings not on calibrated loops. Damaged calibrated loops will be replaced at the cost of $100.00 per loop.

5. Run a blue dye test. This checks the whole system for operation. Any calibrated loops that are out of specification will be re-cut if too long. Loops that are too short will be replaced at a cost of $100.00 per loop.
