Manufacturer Reason

When stored data is recalled from memory, the results do not agree with the original results. Software anomaly: a calculation error occurs when using the correlation adjustment feature on the RapidLab 1200 Systems with software versions 1.0, 1.01, or 1.02. The correlation feature applies user-defined slope and offset parameters each time stored test results are recalled to the display.
