Electrical Hazards

The i1000SR does not pose uncommon electrical hazards if it is installed properly and connected to a power source that meets
required specifications. Basic electrical hazard awareness is essential to the safe operation of any system. It is recommended that
a ground fault circuit interrupter be used when working in a wet environment.

Only qualified personnel should perform electrical servicing. Elements of electrical safety include, but are not limited to the
following:

Inspect electrical cabling into and on the i1000SR periodically for signs of wear and damage.
Turn the instrument OFF before disconnecting the power cord and before servicing any electrical or internal components.
Determine the cause of a blown fuse or thrown circuit breaker and correct the problem before attempting to resume
operation of the equipment. Only use replacement fuses of the specified type and electrical rating.
Verify the power to the instrument is turned OFF. Be aware that a high voltage charge may remain on the power supply with
the power OFF.
Use an electrically insulated tool to disconnect the power supply and short both male pins to the instrument chassis.
Keep liquids away from all connectors of electrical or communication components. Unplug the instrument before clean-up of
major liquid spills.
Make sure hands are dry prior to touching any switches or outlets.
Keep the floor dry and clean under and around the i1000SR.
Use only approved power cords and electrical accessories, such as those supplied with the instrument, to protect against
electric shock.
Connect the power cords only to properly grounded outlets.
A ground fault circuit interrupter should be used when working in a wet environment.

Mechanical Hazards

The i1000SR is an automated system that operates under computer control. As with most automated equipment, there is potential
for injury and bodily harm from moving mechanical components whenever the instrument is in operation. The i1000SR minimizes
mechanical hazards by providing guards to protect against accidental contact with moving components.

The i1000SR requires accurate positioning of all samples, reagents, calibrators, controls, and consumables before executing any
program. If safeguards must be removed or disconnected during setup and testing procedures, use caution. Stay a safe distance
away from the moving components. Fast moving parts may cause injury. Always replace the safeguards upon completion of setup
and testing procedures. It is never acceptable for instrument operators to reach into the instrument when it is in an operating mode.
Should intervention be necessary during a run, the run should be interrupted according to instructions defined in the Operation
Manual.

Injury may result in the event of an instrument malfunction or an unexpected sequence of mechanical component movements.
Basic elements of mechanical equipment safety include but are not limited to:

Never bypass or override a safety device unless during setup or testing activities.
Never operate the instrument without protective covers and barriers in place unless during setup or testing activities.
Never perform manual tasks on the work surface of the i1000SR.
Never allow any part of the body to enter a range of mechanical movement during system operation.
Do not wear articles of clothing or accessories that could catch on the i1000SR.
Keep pockets free of items that could fall into the i1000SR.
Be especially cautious when performing adjustment, maintenance, cleaning, or repair procedures.
Use caution when loading sample carriers and reagents.

Laser Light

The i1000SR is a Class 2 laser product. When this product is used according to its operating instructions, the laser does not
present a hazard to the eyes. Never stare directly into the beam, look into the aperture, place any optics into the beam or bypass
interlocks. Failure to follow proper procedures may result in an eye injury.

Only Abbott trained Field Service Representatives should remove the inner protective covers that enclose the embedded laser.

Do not remove, damage or obliterate any of the laser warning labels. If any of them become illegible, replace them.

Laser Caution Labels

The inner protective cover laser warning labels must not be removed and are to remain legible. The protective housing labels
(Abbott PN 96124-101, 202222-101) are shown in Laser Caution Label 96124-101 and Laser Caution Label 202222-101. The
labels consist of black lettering against a yellow background. This labels appear on the RSH left support and the processing
module cover window.

For beam alignment and other open beam configurations, follow instructions provided by the Service Manual, Advisories, and
Bulletins regarding the requirement for using laser safety eyewear. If required, verify laser eyewear is not damaged and has an
optical density of 1-2 at a wavelength of 650 nm. During open beam configurations, verify that the beam is confined to the laser
bench area and only personnel with proper eye protection are present.

Some reagents, calibrators, and controls contain thimerosal or mercury, and may be considered hazardous by various
environmental regulatory agencies. Do not directly sewer waste fluids that contain thimerosal or mercury.

Products That Contain Guanidine (Thiocyanate)

Do not mix oxiding agents, such as sodium hypochlorite (chlorine bleach) or with liquid waste. Toxic gases may be generated.

Chemical Hazards

FSRs may be exposed to hazardous chemicals when handling reagents, calibrators, controls, or liquid consumables (including
bleach). Exposure to hazardous chemicals is minimized by following instructions provided in the assay Package Inserts and
Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS). Exposure levels are further reduced by the design features of the instrument when it is used
properly.

Precautions

In general, observe the following precautions when handling chemicals:

Consult Material Safety Data Sheets for safe use instructions and precautions.
Avoid contact with skin and eyes. If contact with material is anticipated, wear impervious gloves, a lab coat, and protective
eyewear.
Always maintain good housekeeping. Do not eat, drink, or store food and beverages in areas where chemicals are used.
If irritation or signs of toxicity occur after exposure, seek medical attention.

Hazard symbols that appear on the i1000SR product labeling are accompanied by Risk (R) and Safety (S) numbers and represent
specific risk and safety phrases as defined by applicable European Community Directives. These risk and safety phrases describe
precautions to be used when working with a particular chemical or chemical mixture. Refer to the corresponding phrases indicated
in the Package Insert or similar document for all (R) and (S) numbers that appear on product labeling. Other country-specific
warning and precautions may be included on the labeling.

Sodium Azide

Some products contain sodium azide. Observe the following precautions when using products that contain sodium azide:

Do not mix any chemical or product with a pH below 6 with solutions or residues that contain sodium azide (such as wash
buffer). Sodium azide releases hydrazoic acid, a very toxic and pungent-smelling gas when the pH is lower than 6.

Caution
The pre-trigger solution has a pH lower than 6. Allowing the pre-trigger solution to contact wash buffer or dried wash
buffer residue may result in the release of hydrazoic acid, a very toxic and pungent-smelling gas. Care must be taken
to clean up any spills or residue that may have occurred due to leaking components (ex. pumps in the pump bay)
identified during servicing of the instrument.

Flush drains thoroughly with water several times a day to prevent potentially explosive metal azides from forming on lead,
copper or brass components or on solder in laboratory plumbing if product and/or instrument waste is released to a drain.
Detailed information about azides in laboratory drains is available in Current Intelligence Bulletin No. 13 Explosive Azide
Hazard (August 16, 1976), a publication issued by the U.S. National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), at
cdc.gov/niosh.
A copy of the bulletin is also available on the Abbott Diagnostics Global internet site at abbottdiagnostics.com (select the
International region), under Support - Technical Library - Other Reference Documents, or by contacting your Abbott
representative.

Physical Hazards

Safe practices should be observed when exposed to the following physical hazards.

Sharps and Probes

In general, the use of sharps and glassware should be minimized.

The probes, vent needles, aspiration probes, and leaf springs are sharp and may be contaminated with infectious materials. Avoid
contact with these components and handle them cautiously in order to prevent injury. Use forceps to remove contaminated broken
glassware.

Dispose of sharps in an appropriately marked, puncture-resistant, and leakproof container before treatment and disposal.

Heavy Objects

The system is heavy and sections of the shell are unsupported. Ensure that you have adequate help before attempting to move the
system.

Push only on solid sections of the housing; do not exert pressure on unsupported sections of the shell.

The high-concentration waste container and wash buffer reservoir is heavy when full. Use care when handling the container to
reduce the risk of injury.

When moving or lifting heavy objects, obtain assistance and always use proper lifting techniques.

Hot Objects

The buffer heaters, lamp and lamp housing may be hot. Allow the surface to cool before touching and handling. Use temperature-
resistant gloves, if necessary.

Trip Hazard

The i1000SR is equipped with a power cord and various computer connectors. To avoid a tripping hazard, ensure cords in high
traffic areas are properly stowed.

Electrostatic Discharge (ESD)

Many of the electronic components on circuit boards are susceptible to electrostatic discharge (ESD). Static discharge of as little as
100 - 200 volts can damage or destroy a component. Always wear a wrist ground strap and discharge static electricity from your
body prior to touching and working on the instrument.

Note
All PC boards are shipped in a static protective bag. This symbol is placed on the card cage to identify the appropriate
ground location.

Static Hazard
Static protective procedures are used during the manufacture of PC boards. Replacement PC board assemblies are also protected
by use of static protective packaging as well as boxed to prevent physical damage. Assemblies that have failed and are returned
for repair are also handled at the repair shop under static protection procedures.

Handling Guidelines - PC Subassemblies

These guidelines assure protection against failures created by static.

Retain spare PC board subassemblies in the static-protective bags.


Use an approved static-protective field service kit, or the ground strap shipped with the board, whenever a board is removed
from an instrument or protective bag.
Replace the defective PC board in the same protective bag to return for repair.

Note
Continued use of the protective shipping boxes, both during shipping and storage, eliminates most failures caused by
physical damage.

Static Protective Service Kit

The static protective service kit is designed to keep the FSE/FSR, replacement part, work surface, and instrument at the same
ground level. Generally, an instruction set accompanies the kit, however, in the absence of specific instructions, follow the "ESD
Procedure".

ESD Procedure

Note
Use where ESD symbol is present and static protective equipment is not shipped with a replacement part.

1. Place the work mat on a solid surface close to the instrument, allow the ground strap to reach the instrument.
2. Attach the ground clip to the instrument chassis.
3. Attach the other end of the ground clip cable and the connector from the wrist strap to the work mat. (Exception: Some wrist
strap cables provide a clip to connect to the same ground source as the mat cable).
4. Attach the wrist strap to your wrist, make sure the metallic button on the inside of the wrist strap is in direct contact with
your skin.
5. Place PC boards, removed from the instrument, on the work mat.
6. Replacement PC boards should be placed on the work mat before removing from the protective bag and remain on the mat
until installation.
7. Defective PC boards should be replaced in the static-protective bag before removal from the work mat area.

CMIA Optics

Overview

The ARCHITECT i1000SR System uses chemiluminescence to detect and quantify the presence of specific antigens, antibodies
and analytes in samples. A chemiluminescent reaction occurs through the interaction of paramagnetic microparticles coated with a
capture molecule, an acridinium labeled conjugate, pre-trigger and trigger solutions.

The optics subsystem and associated components are designed to detect and measure photon emissions produced by this
chemiluminescent reaction.

Hardware Description

The CMIA Optics subsystem has three principal assemblies:

CMIA Reader Assembly


Reader Magnet
Shutter Assembly

Functional Description

Functional Diagram Links

CMIA Optics

CMIA Reader Assembly

The CMIA reader is a "passive" optics device that does not require a lamp light source to produce a detectable light emission; the
chemiluminescent reaction generates the light photons that are detected by the CMIA reader. The reader consists of a light pipe
that collects and directs photons produced from the chemiluminescent reaction, onto the photo cathode of a photo multiplier tube
(PMT). The resultant photoelectric signal is processed by the CMIA optics board and converted to a numerical value. The reader is
protected from magnetic interference though shielding around the outside of the PMT, and a crosshair in front of the PMT. This
crosshair deflects the magnetic field while still allowing the light photons into the PMT.

Shutter Assembly

The Shutter Assembly isolates the reaction vessel from background light that will interfere with the optics read. When the shutter is
open, the reaction vessels are free to move in the process path. During the CMIA optics read cycle, the shutter activates, closing
off the process path around the RV, isolating it from background light. At this time the primary entrance to the chamber is at the
Trigger nozzle. The shutter assembly also includes an actuating solenoid and a sensor board.

Reader Magnet

During the CMIA optics read cycle, the paramagnetic microparticles contained in the reaction mixture are attracted to a wall of the
reaction vessel by means of the reader magnet. This prevents the microparticles from interfering with the chemiluminescent
reaction.

Circuit Boards

In addition, the following circuit boards are also used in the CMIA optics subsystem:
CMIA Optics Board
Module Controller Board
DC Driver I/O Board
Processing Center Distribution Board

Normal Read Process

The following is the sequence of events for the normal read process for a 2-step assay.

Note
Each RV containing a sample reaction mixture has undergone incubation and wash cycles, prior to reaching this stage of the
assay sequence:

1. The RV is indexed to the pre-trigger dispense position, where pre-trigger is added. The RV is vortexed. Pre-trigger
(hydrogen peroxide) has 3 functions:
Creates an acidic environment preventing the early release of light emissions
Prevents microparticle clumping
Splits off the acridinium dye from the conjugate-bound immune complex, readying it for the action of the trigger
2. The RV is then indexed to the optics read position. This position is in front of the reader magnet, which pulls the
microparticles to the wall of the RV.
3. The shutter closes to block out external light from the RV.
4. The high voltage to the PMT is turned on.
5. A 6 second delay occurs, during which time the PMT response stabilizes and microparticle capture occurs. Following this
delay, a background read is taken. The light pipe directs any light photons present, to the PMT in the CMIA reader. The
CMIA reader converts the detected photons to a count value. The PMT output signal is interfaced through the CMIA optics
board. The count data is transferred to the module controller and is used to calculate the relative light unit (RLU) value for
the background read.
6. The foreground activated read is initiated and then sodium hydroxide is dispensed into the reaction vessel. The
chemiluminescent reaction occurs which results in the emission of light photons.
7. The light pipe directs the emitted light photons to the PMT, in the CMIA reader. The CMIA reader collects the emitted
photons of light and converts them to counts. The PMT output signal is interfaced through the CMIA optics board. The count
data is transferred to the module controller and is used to calculate the relative light unit (RLU) value for that sample. This
RLU value is then converted to a result unit by the Architect software.
8. The high voltage to the PMT is turned off.
9. After a specified delay has occurred, a command to open the shutter assembly is generated by the module controller.
10. The next reaction vessel is indexed by the process path into the read position.

Note
Refer to the Operations Manual for a detailed explanation of the chemiluminescent reaction

CMIA Optics Normal Read Process


Activated Optics Read

The CMIA optics measures the amount of light emission over a pre-defined time - this is the activated read. The optics read is
taken over 3 seconds for both the background read and the activated or foreground read. Each read involves 30 subreads at 100
millisecond intervals.

The signal in the result log file is the sum of these 30 background reads and 30 foreground reads. The corrected or final count is
obtained by subtracting the background from the foreground read.

The foreground read is initiated just prior to the trigger dispense. When the thirty 100 millisecond subreads are plotted for a normal
read, a bell shaped curve with a left bias is obtained. The first subread is usually very low or zero as the reaction has not initiated
yet. As the chemiluminescent flash occurs with the trigger addition, the peak signal occurs between the 4th and 6th reads, and
typically at the 5th read. This peak will vary depending on the specific assay, and analyte concentrations. The reaction then
degrades over the remainder of the 3 seconds to near zero again at the final read.

The final optics read = foreground read - background read.

The final read is measured in relative light units (RLU).

The system verifies that the background read counts fall within an acceptable range, and the activated read profile falls within an
acceptable read profile or count range. There are read validity checks that monitor for unusual spikes and peaks, excess noise and
other abnormalities related to the optics or fluidics.
Here is an example of optics read data from a typical calibrator run. The raw RLU counts and corresponding graphical
representation are included for both a low and a high RLU calibrator.

Initialization Sequence

Module Initialization

During the module initialization the shutter is left in the open state. Power to the PMT is disabled. Power to the shutter solenoid is
disabled, allowing the shutter to open (in case the solenoid was active and closed when the system status changed to stopped).
The trigger and pre-trigger pumps are homed.

Run Initialization

During Run Initialization, the PMT high voltage is disabled and the shutter moves out of its home position, and then back again.
Next, the Shutter Assembly closes and its position is verified. The high voltage to the PMT is turned on. After a short delay, a
verification of reader functionality is performed and the PMT high voltage is turned off. The Shutter Assembly then remains in the
closed position until it is necessary to index the process path. If indexing is immediate, a short delay is necessary after turning the
PMT high voltage off before opening the shutter.

Fluidics, Vacuum, and Waste

Overview

The fluidics subsystem is responsible for the movement of buffer, reagents and liquid waste throughout the Architect i1000SR
system. The fluidics subsystem performs the following functions:

Aspiration of sample from a sample tube or cup, and dispense into a reaction vessel
Aspiration of reagent from a reagent bottle, and dispense into a reaction vessel
Dispense of wash buffer into a reaction vessel for on-board sample dilution
Supply of wash buffer to the wash cup for pipettor probe washing and flushing
Supply and dispense of wash buffer into reaction vessels for washing during the CMIA wash process
Supply and dispense of pre-trigger and trigger solutions for the CMIA reaction process, and for priming and flushing of the
pre-trigger and trigger manifolds

Various reagent and buffer pumps move the liquids from the storage reservoirs to the appropriate manifolds. Pipettor robotics
positions the probe to the appropriate sample container, reagent bottle or reaction vessel for the aspiration and dispense process.
Liquids are aspirated and dispensed through the probe by syringe action. Pressure monitoring and liquid level sense hardware
monitor for correct liquid aspiration and dispense.

The vacuum subsystem is used to:

Remove wash buffer waste from the wash cup


Remove liquid waste from the pre-trigger, trigger and washzone prime / flush bypass lines
Aspirate liquid from the reaction vessels at the CMIA Wash Zone during the CMIA wash process

A vacuum pump creates the vacuum used in the vacuum subsystem, and distributes it via a vacuum accumulator. The waste liquid
is drawn to, and collected in the vacuum accumulator and is then pumped to a floor drain or to the onboard waste container via a
peristaltic waste pump.

Pipettor Assembly

The pipettor assembly controls the probe movement through horizontal (theta) and vertical (z) movement. The pipettor probe,
together with a syringe and valve assembly, is used to aspirate sample from sample tubes or cups and dispense into a reaction
vessel. It is also used to aspirate reagent from reagent bottles and dispense into a reaction vessel. The probe is washed with wash
buffer solution via active wash protocols using an active wash cup assembly. During active wash, the inside of the probe is flushed
with buffer while the exterior is washed with buffer, and the waste buffer is removed by the vacuum system. The pipettor motors
are 36 volt DC stepper motors.

Pipettor Syringe Assembly

The syringe is used to accurately aspirate and dispense sample and reagent volumes by means of positive displacement of a
plunger within a barrel. A syringe valve controls buffer flow to the syringe. During pipettor probe priming and flushing, or on-board
buffer dilution, the syringe valve is open allowing the buffer pump to move buffer from the on-board buffer reservoir, through the
syringe and up to the pipettor probe. During aspiration and dispense of reagent or sample, the valve is closed and displacement of
the syringe plunger provides the positive and negative pressure to aspirate or dispense fluid through the pipettor probe. The
syringe plunger is driven by a 36 volt stepper motor, and has a sensor board for home positioning and valve control. The syringe
valve is also 36 volt DC powered.

Wash Cup Assembly


The wash cup assembly is a block manifold with two or three solenoid valves and two wells. It is used to wash the pipettor probe
during the aspiration and dispense cycles. The outer well is the waste well and the central well is the main wash well. The outer
waste well contains a removable insert called a baffle. This baffle can be removed for cleaning as required. The central well has a
threaded insert that can also be removed for cleaning. The three solenoid valves are connected to vacuum. Solenoid S1 in the
upper position is called the Upper Solenoid Valve, and is used to vacuum aspirate the wash buffer from the central wash well, and
air dry the probe. Solenoid S2 in the middle position is called the Outer Drain Valve and drains the outer waste well. Solenoid S3
(if present) in the lower position is called the Inner Drain Valve. S3 is initialized during startup and never used during any system
operation (see Note below). A third channel in the manifold directs liquid overflow, in the event of a wash cup blockage, to drain
into the base of the processing center. This prevents potential damage to any process path components if a flooding event occurs.

Note
Systems manufactured prior to unit serial number 2500 had three solenoid valves. The S3 valve was removed and the hole
in the wash cup body plugged.

The process for a probe wash is as follows:

1. The probe moves to the outer waste well and discards any residual liquid (serum, reagent or buffer). This liquid waste is
removed under vacuum by the Outer Drain Valve - S2.
2. The probe moves to the central wash well which contains clean buffer from the previous wash cycle. The probe aspirates a
small air sip (10 µl) during this move.
3. The probe moves down into the wash well, aspirating 150 µl of clean buffer. This process washes the probe internally and
externally.
4. The Upper Solenoid Valve (S1) opens and vacuum aspiration commences at the upper waste orifice, near the top of the
wash well. Six milliliters of clean buffer is pumped through the probe to flush the inner surface. This also flushes out the 150
µl of aspirated buffer in step 3. Wash buffer is vacuum aspirated through the upper waste orifice, to the waste system.
5. The probe retracts out of the central wash well. As it moves past the upper waste orifice, air is drawn under vacuum over
the probe surface, which dries the outer surface of the probe. Excess buffer continues to be aspirated to waste. Finally the
probe is completely retracted from the wash well and has been air dried. The central wash well now contains clean buffer,
from the 6 ml pump flush in Step 4, ready for the next wash cycle to commence.

Wash Zone Assembly

The wash zone assembly consists of a manifold with 3 dispense nozzles and 4 valves, and a wash assembly that moves 3 wash
aspirate probes up and down. Wash zone valves are used to dispense heated wash buffer into reaction vessels for the CMIA wash
process. The wash assembly then lowers the probes into the reaction vessels, and vacuum aspirates the waste liquid through the
upper waste manifold. During the wash process, the RVs are positioned in front of the wash magnet in the process path, causing
microparticle capture to occur. This allows the reaction mircroparticles to be washed, but prevents them being aspirated to waste
when the waste liquid it vacuum aspirated. Three valves are used to dispense wash buffer to three reaction vessels in sequence.
The 4th valve is for flushing and priming the manifold and is a bypass line to waste. A 36-volt DC stepper motor drives the wash
assembly, and the wash manifold valves, are all 36 volt DC powered.
The sequence of events at the wash zone assembly for an RV is as follows:

Sequence Event

Process Path Valve 1 dispenses heated wash buffer into RV giving a final volume of 400 µl; actual dispense volume is
wash position 1 variable and assay dependent.

Process Path WZ probe 1 aspirates liquid from RV. Valve 2 dispenses 500ul heated wash buffer into RV. After a 5 second
wash position 2 delay, liquid is again aspirated and another 1000ul buffer dispensed into RV.

Process Path WZ probe 2 aspirates liquid from RV. Valve 3 dispenses 1000ul heated wash buffer into RV. Liquid again
wash position 3 aspirated and another 1000ul buffer dispensed into RV.

Process Path WZ probe 3 aspirates liquid from RV and then after a 6 second delay, repeats the procedure to ensure all
wash position 4 liquid is aspirated.
Pre-trigger / Trigger Manifold Assembly

This is the dispense manifold for the Pre-trigger and Trigger solutions. There are two valves for each reagent - a dispense valve,
and a bypass valve (for flushing the manifold to waste). A dispense nozzle corresponds to each of the two dispense valves, and
directs the specific solution into the reaction vessel. The bypass valves direct Pre-trigger or Trigger solution to a waste line. All the
valves are 36 volt DC driven.

Upper Waste Manifold

The upper waste manifold sits to the left of the wash zone buffer heater and wash zone assemblies. The pre-trigger and trigger
bypass waste lines, and the wash zone manifold bypass waste line all connect to this manifold. Additionally the three wash zone
thermistor tubing also connect to this manifold and are actually held in place by the manifold itself. These three tubing are
connected to the wash zone probes and are used to aspirate the waste liquid from the RVs during the washing process. A vacuum
solenoid on the waste manifold, also known as the wash zone aspirate valve, opens to allow vacuum to remove waste liquid from
the upper waste manifold to the vacuum accumulator. This vacuum solenoid is 36VDC powered.

Vacuum Subsystem
The vacuum subsystem consists of the vacuum accumulator assembly and the vacuum pump with filter. The vacuum system is
used to supply vacuum to the sample wash cup and the upper waste manifold, which removes liquid waste from the wash zone
manifold and the T/PT manifold. Vacuum is used to aspirate and remove this liquid waste, and transfer it to the vacuum
accumulator. The vacuum pump creates vacuum in the accumulator. Measured vacuum levels in the accumulator, monitored by a
vacuum sensor, govern pump operation. The vacuum pump can generate a maximum of 27" Hg. The vacuum sensor is polled at
the beginning of each 18 second lock step during assay processing, and is also checked during any activity requiring vacuum
(including priming, flushing and other M&D procedures). If the measured level is less than 9" Hg, an error condition is generated.
The actual vacuum used during assay processing varies between 9" and 27" Hg depending on how much vacuum is required at
that time. A vacuum filter is used to filter the vacuum pump air supply, and the pump exhaust is directed through a muffler to
reduce noise. A metal outlet on the muffler is directed towards the solid waste container, and allows any condensate that collects in
the muffler to drain to the waste container. The vacuum pump is a 24volt DC diaphragm pump. When vacuum is required to
aspirate liquid waste, a solenoid valve opens at the relevant manifold, allowing the vacuum to aspirate liquid from that location. This
waste liquid is drawn into the accumulator. When the vacuum aspiration cycle has completed, the solenoid valve closes leaving the
waste liquid in the vacuum accumulator to be removed by the waste pump. The vacuum accumulator has a level sensor, which
monitors liquid levels in the event that the waste pump fails. If the level sensor is tripped, an error message is generated and the
system will stop running until the issue is rectified. The vacuum accumulator has a drain valve attached and the waste liquid is then
pumped out by a waste pump into either the on-board liquid waste container, or else to the laboratory floor drain. The vacuum filter
has a drying valve attached for removal of condensate build-up. This is opened during the Daily Maintenance procedure. The
vacuum pump draws air through this valve and through the filter to dry any moisture.

Liquid Waste

Liquid waste is first collected in the vacuum accumulator. The i1000SR system software monitors the waste accumulation and
when 225 milliliters of liquid waste accumulates, the waste pump is activated. The waste pump is a peristaltic pump driven by a 36
volt DC stepper motor. It will pump the liquid waste, through the lower waste manifold, to either the onboard waste container or to
an external drain. The on-board waste container has a weight platform sensor that triggers a message to alert the operator that the
on-board waste must be emptied, when approximately 10 liters of liquid waste has collected. There is also a waste pump pressure
switch in-line between the waste pump and the liquid waste container. Error 5307 "liquid waste high pressure condition detected"
will be generated if a high pressure condition is detected by this pressure switch that lasts for 15 minutes. This pressure switch
allows the i1000SR system to keep running while the on-board liquid waste container is removed for emptying. Once this error
occurs, if the liquid waste container has not been reconnected by the time 225 mls of waste has collected in the vacuum
accumulator, then the system will go to Stopped with an error condition. The waste switch will also detect an over-pressure
condition caused by a waste tubing blockage, or waste container sensor failure (causing the waste container to fill to capacity), but
only when the waste pump activates to evacuate the vacuum accumulator.

Condensate generated by the reagent cooler is also removed by the waste pump, through the liquid waste system. When the
processing module is first powered on and initialized, the waste pump will run for two minutes to evacuate any cooler condensate
that has collected, moving this liquid from the cooler through the lower waste manifold to either the onboard liquid waste container
or an external waste drain. A small in-line filter is located between the cooler and the lower waste manifold, and protects the
manifold valve from blockage due to particulate matter in the condensate. Approximately every three hours, the system software
will also run the waste pump for about one minute to evacuate any cooler condensate that has collected. This will occur in any
system state, including Stopped status.

Waste Drawer

Used RVs are discarded from the process path to the solid waste container. Both the liquid and solid waste containers sit on a
slide-out platform called the waste drawer, with the liquid waste container in front. Sitting beneath the waste drawer is the waste
pan. An optical sensor is mounted in the wall of the rear fluidics area, and detects the presence of the solid waste container. This
container can be removed for emptying during assay processing; however this will cause RVs to drop from the process path and
collect in the waste pan. The system software will allow 25 RVs to be discarded in this way, while the solid waste container is
being emptied. If the container has not been replaced when 25 RVs have been discarded, the system will go to Scheduled Pause
with error 2021 "solid waste pan full".

The liquid waste container sits on a weighted platform mounted to the waste drawer, with a cantilevered arm and magnet attached.
The magnet lines up with a magnetic sensor mounted to the rear wall of the waste area. As the liquid waste container gradually
fills with liquid waste, the weight of the container will push down on the weighted platform, which in turn lifts the arm and magnet
up and away from the magnetic sensor. When approximately 10 liters of liquid waste has collected, this magnet will have moved
sufficiently away from the sensor to cause a sensor state change. This in turn generates error 2017 "liquid waste inventory full,
empty the container".
It should also be noted that if the waste drawer is not completely closed, the arm and magnet may also be separated from the
magnetic sensor, which will also generate the same error 2017 "liquid waste inventory full, empty the container".

Lower Waste Manifold

The lower waste manifold is mounted to the left side wall of the lower fluidics bay, at the back of the instrument. It has two
solenoid valves with 2 inlet waste liquid lines, and one outlet waste line that connects directly to the peristaltic waste pump. One
solenoid valve opens to drain the reagent cooler condensate. The other opens to remove liquid in the vacuum accumulator. Waste
liquid flowing through this manifold is directed to either the on-board liquid waste container, or an external floor drain, through the
action of the peristaltic waste pump.

Buffer Transfer Assembly

A transfer pump is used to load buffer from the preparation container, into the on-board buffer reservoir. Transfer tubing is
connected to an inlet fitting situated on the front of the i1000SR instrument. A command through the user interface initiates the
transfer pump operation. A buffer filter between the pump and the on-board reservoir ensures the buffer solution is clean. An air
detect sensor located between the inlet and the transfer pump monitors buffer flow and will stop the transfer pump operation when
air is detected, indicating that the preparation container is empty. A level sensor in the on-board reservoir also detects when the
full position is reached, and stops the transfer pump operation before the reservoir can overflow. The transfer pump is 24DC.

FMI Pump Home Sensors

The FMI buffer pump, wash zone pump, trigger pump and pre-trigger pump all have their home sensor outputs routed to both the
CMIA Optics Board and an Indexer Board. Using two boards for the pump home sensor analysis allows motor step loss detection
on these pump motors that do not have mechanical hard stops.

The Indexer Board uses the home sensor signal from the pump as part of its embedded motor control home sensor input. This
input allows the motor controller to properly handle all of the pump motor homing operations, and to keep an absolute reference
position for that pump.

The CMIA Optics Board uses the home sensor signal from the pump as a general-purpose digital input. This input causes the
generation of an "interrupt" signal whenever the home sensor changes from one state to another. When a pump motor operates, its
home sensor state will change at least once during a single rotation of that motor. Subsequently, when a motor move command is
sent to a specific pump motor, the embedded software on the Module Controller Board keeps track of how many times a home
sensor interrupt occurs on the CMIA Optics Board. This information is then used by the embedded software on the Controller
Board to provide a means of detecting a motor step loss condition on that motor.

A motor step loss condition will be detected if the proper number of interrupts from the CMIA Optics Board does not occur for a
motor move request. For example, a pump may be commanded to move 720 degrees, or 2 motor shaft rotations. If there are 2
home sensor state changes and thus 2 interrupts generated per shaft rotation for that pump, the CMIA Optics Board would expect
to receive 4 interrupts in total for that move command. If less than 4 interrupts are received, the Module Controller Board
determines that a motor step loss has occurred.

Mechanisms that are linear in nature (i.e. that have mechanical hard stops at each end of their travel) do not require this additional
level of step loss detection because the Indexer Board firmware provides its own algorithms for detecting motor step loss
conditions. Only mechanisms such as pumps and carousels that are rotational in nature (i.e. have no mechanical hard stops),
require some additional level of step loss detection capability. Some of these mechanisms use an incremental encoder (e.g. the
Process Path and Reagent Carousel motors) to provide the necessary step loss detection. However the pump motors use this dual
home sensor signal routing method for motor step loss detection.

Liquid Level Sense and Pressure Monitoring

Overview

The Architect i1000SR system uses liquid level sensing and pressure monitoring to detect liquid and ensure that the aspiration of
sample and reagent liquids occurs correctly in the assay reaction sequence. The liquid level sense hardware is used to detect
when the pipettor probe makes contact with liquid, while the pressure monitoring hardware determines that the correct volume of
liquid is aspirated and that clots, bubbles or other types of interference do not interrupt the liquid aspiration. The liquid level sense
(LLS) board enables the Architect i1000SR system's pipettor to detect fluid and monitor the quality of an aspiration by using
features that detect signals transmitted from the probe and monitoring the pressure in the fluid lines during aspiration.

Liquid Level Sense Subsystem

During aspirations, the LLS board sends commands to stop the Z motion of the pipettor when fluid is detected. The detection
system is comprised of a conductive probe, low frequency data acquisition circuit boards, cables, and amplified antennas. The LLS
board develops a frequency that is routed to and transmitted from the pipettor probe and is received by amplified antennas that are
placed in aspiration locations. There is no level sense monitoring during the dispense process.

The Architect i1000SR LLS circuit uses a signal frequency at 100 KHz.

The LLS circuit has three detection modes of operation

LLS mode with Z stop (normal operation)


LLS mode with theta / Z stop (Theta Train operation)
Ground Mode with Z and theta stop (ground feature train operation)

Normal Aspiration Mode

During a normal aspiration process, the robotics positions the probe over a vessel of fluid. As the pipettor lowers the probe, the
frequency transmitted from the probe is received by the antenna. When the probe contacts fluid the signal received by the antenna
increases abruptly and the change in amplitude and rate of change are then analyzed to determine if fluid has been contacted.
Once fluid is contacted, the downward movement (Z axis) of the pipettor stops. The pipettor then moves down and through fluid
surface to the desired in-depth. During aspiration, as the syringe draws fluid from the vessel, the pipettor Z axis moves the probe
down to keep the probe at the desired in-depth. During this mode, the LLS system also monitors for error conditions such as lost
LLS during aspiration, board failures or Z "probe crash" limit actuation. If the probe contacts a solid object, the movement of the
probe is detected by the Z Limit optical sensor board located at the end of the arm.

Aspiration and Dispense Process

1. Pipettor robotics position the probe over the required aspiration location. The z-limit circuitry is enabled and the pipettor
drives the probe down to a safe "start" position over the liquid vessel.
2. The LLS circuitry is enabled and the probe continues in a downward Z motion until fluid contact occurs. At fluid contact, a
fluid LLS sense signal is generated, a limit signal is sent to the indexer board and the Z motion is halted.
3. The syringe motor profile is sent to the PM processor, allowing the PM processor to determine appropriate volume aspiration
parameters for the volume of liquid being aspirated. The probe is then driven slowly into the liquid to a specified "in depth".
4. The pressure-monitoring circuitry is activated and the probe continues to drive into the liquid while the syringe aspiration
cycle occurs. During this time, liquid contact is monitored by the LLS circuitry.
5. Upon completion of aspiration cycle, the system checks the "liquid contact broken" status to verify that there was no loss of
liquid contact. The pipettor robotics then moves the probe out of the liquid.
6. The PM processor analyzes the pressure transducer data, determines the PM status for the aspiration, generates an
interrupt and reports the PM status to the system.
7. Pipettor robotics positions the probe over the required dispense location and drives the probe down to the specified
dispense height position.
8. The dispense cycle occurs. There is no PM or LLS monitoring used for the dispense cycle.
9. Once the dispense process completes, pipettor robotics positions the probe at the wash cup and the probe wash cycle
occurs.
10. Once probe washing has completed, the probe is raised to the correct z-clear height.

Probe Calibration

The LLS hardware is designed to require no mechanical adjustments. 2 types of calibration process are used during the pipettor
robocal:

Theta / z train mode - This is used to train the pipettor probe to the reagent carousel and the load platform (sample carrier).
The probe is lowered and moved toward the target in the left/right direction. When the target is touched, the signal
increases, which halts the pipettor movement.
Theta / z ground mode - This is used to train the pipettor probe to the washcup and process path. These assemblies are
physically connected together and subsequently there is only one target for both assemblies. When the probe touches the
grounded target, the signal decreases suddenly. This signal loss is detected and the pipettor movement halted.

After detecting each target, the specific mechanical offsets are saved in a system file. These system file parameters are loaded
during system initialization and assure that the pipettor is calibrated to the system.

Pressure Monitoring Subsystem

The pressure monitoring (PM) system monitors the aspiration of liquid for abnormalities including serum clots, clogged probes,
bubbles, foam and tubing leaks. The system is comprised of a pressure transducer (PT), pressure monitoring circuitry contained on
the pipettor board, and cables. Pressure monitoring is accomplished by placing a PT in the fluid line between the syringe and
probe. During liquid aspiration, the full pressure profile is measured and analyzed for conformance to a normal pattern. If an
abnormality is detected, an aspiration error will be generated for that aspiration cycle. Pressure monitoring is not performed on the
dispense cycle. The PM hardware is designed to require no adjustments.

Hardware Description

The following hardware components are used in the LLS and PM subsystems:

Liquid Level Sense Board - located in card cage


Pipettor Board mounted to the pipettor assembly
Receiver antennas
Conductive pipettor probe
Signal cables
Pressure monitor (transducer) - located in-line between syringe and probe

Pipettor Board Engineering Schematic 5A_9040.PDF

On the i1000SR instrument, the LLS signal is transmitted from the pipettor probe at a frequency of 100 KHz. There are signals on
the backplane, which interface to the LLS/PM Controller and set the backplane communication address and operating mode of the
LLS/PM controller, including the proper operating frequency for the LLS oscillator and PM interrupt. The Field-Programmable Gate
Arrays (FPGA) located on the board performs the frequency selection. The FPGA outputs the correct frequency 50% duty cycle
TTL signal to the low pass filter. The low pass filter strips the higher order harmonics from the TTL signal and the resulting signal
is an approximate sine wave at the correct frequency. The signal is fed to the variable gain transmit amplifier and also to a
multiplier circuit. This variable gain transmit amplifier is controlled through system software parameters. The output signal from the
transmit amplifier is connected to the pipettor probe.

When the probe contacts a conductive fluid, the signal received by the antenna increases which results in a subsequent increase
in the signal from the antenna. The antenna signal is fed into a variable gain receiver amplifier, which can be controlled by
software, but is set to the maximum gain. The signal is then fed to one input of a multiplier. The other input to the multiplier is from
a local oscillator on the LLS/PM controller board. The multiplier is used to discriminate the low level LLS signal from noise, which
may be present on the received LLS signal. The output signal of the multiplier when viewed on an oscilloscope is the combination
of a DC offset and a signal that is two times the frequency of the transmit signal. The low pass filter removes this 2 X transmit
signal frequency component. This filtered output is then input to an A/D converter where it is digitized. The digital signal is then fed
into the Digital Signal Processor (DSP).

In simplest terms, the algorithm calculates the difference in LLS signal ADC readings and compares the difference to a threshold
set in the LLS.DAT system file. The DSP waits for a set number of consecutive readings to discriminate between a good liquid
sense and a random event. When a good liquid sense is detected, a limit signal is sent to the appropriate motor indexer board to
stop Z-axis motion for the pipettor.

Note
The LLS system is not used during dispense operations.

Note
LLS status and motor positions are saved in the system LLS log file for use in troubleshooting.

Each type of fluid vessel has a minimum volume at which the LLS system is able to detect fluid.

Vessel Minimum Volume

Sample Tube Dead volume of 0.3 inch above tube bottom or separator

Sample Cup 50 µl

Reaction Vessel 50 µl

Conjugate Bottle 0.770 ml dead volume

Microparticle Bottle 1.5ml dead volume

Assay Specific Diluent Bottle 5.0 ml dead volume

During the aspiration cycle, the pressure monitoring subsystem measures and analyzes the pressure response in order to detect
and communicate aspiration errors. The pressure measurements are obtained by placing a pressure monitor in the fluid line
between the syringe and the probe. The pressure monitoring circuitry on the pipettor board is used to condition and digitize the
signal from the pressure monitor. The digital signal is then sent to the card cage Liquid Level Sense Board for analysis. As an
aspiration begins, the syringe velocity, acceleration, and motor steps are communicated to the PM processor on the LLS/PM
Controller board. Given this information, the pressure profile is analyzed for abnormalities compared to the expected values.

Power Supply and Distribution

Overview

The i1000SR power supply provides DC voltages to various parts of the instrument in order to operate fans, motors, solenoids, the
reagent cooler and the system electronics. It converts an AC input voltage to 6 stable DC voltages that are routed to the instrument
subsystems. The input voltage can be in the range 110 - 240 VAC and 47 - 63 Hz. There are no AC voltages used in the i1000SR
instrument.

Hardware Description

The Architect i1000SR power supply is a self-contained unit within an EMI enclosure. It is an auto-selecting power supply so no
further voltage configuration is required. The main power switch is a 20 amp circuit breaker. The main power input is a type
IEC320 C19 connector. The enclosure contains a cooling fan, which draws air in through the front of the power supply, expelling it
out through the fan enclosure at the back. This fan is the only field-replaceable part other than the entire power supply. There are
no field-replaceable fuses in the power supply. The power supply has a direct connection to the card cage backplane; no extra
cabling is required to connect the two assemblies.

Status LEDs display voltage status information on the Power Supply.

Power Supply Functional Schematic and LEDs


Power Supply Input Panel

The power supply consists of the following functional units:

AC input power module -The incoming mains power can be in the range 110 - 240 VAC ±10% and 47 - 63 Hz, and is
automatically selected by the power supply circuitry. The AC input circuitry has EMI filtering and both EFT (electrical fast
transient) and surge protection. The EMI filter prevents noise and switching transients generated by the power supply
through the mains AC interaction. EFT and surge protection isolate the power supply outputs from AC line disturbances
through a transient suppression network.
DC power converters -The AC input voltage is routed through an EMI filter to the 6 Power-Factor-Corrected (PFC) AC-DC
converters. These converters step down the voltage using switching regulators and rectify it to produce a stable, specific DC
output, which is then distributed to the instrument systems via a direct connection with the card cage backplane. Power
Factor Correction is implemented to minimize harmonic emissions to acceptable levels. All DC outputs are short-circuit
protected and are isolated from the chassis ground.

Power Supply Error Monitoring

The power supply verifies proper function through monitoring several signals. The following four signals are monitored for error
conditions by the module controller:

AC Power Fail
Over-temperature
Under-voltage
Over-voltage
The AC Power Fail signal indicates that AC power is insufficient to maintain regulation of DC outputs. The Over-temperature signal
indicates cooling fan failure, or excessive AC-DC converter temperatures. The Under-voltage signal indicates under-voltage
conditions for either the DC outputs or AC input voltage. The Over-voltage signal indicates over-voltage conditions on the DC
outputs or the AC input. System over-current protection is provided by a circuit breaker that also serves as the main power switch.

The power supply will also run in "Maintenance Mode". In this mode the +36Vdc output is disabled so field personnel can safely
unplug solenoids and stepper motors without powering down the instrument. Maintenance Mode is enabled by typing the CLI
commend DIO 37 SET 1 and is disabled via the command DIO 37 SET 0.

Card Cage

Overview

The i1000SR card cage assembly houses the system control (logic) and driver (power) printed circuit boards (PCB's). The main
instrument Power Supply connects to the card cage backplane through a single direct connector, and supplies the various DC
voltages to the card cage PCB's. The card cage PCB's then supply power and logic signals to the different system sub assemblies
and components. These signals are carried by cables that interface to the card cage PCB's through the card cage backplane. The
backplane has additional fuses for protection of the various DC loads.

Card Cage Boards

The table below describes the printed circuit boards contained within the card cage, along with their basic functionality

DC Driver I/O Provides power to energize solenoids, valves and vortexers Power

Minimum Board Configuration

The minimum board configuration required to perform an instrument boot-up and initialization to the snapshot screen is:

Module Controller and CMIA Optics boards.

The system will boot-up with just the module controller but will have numerous errors.

Occasionally some systems fail to complete the boot sequence, due to a board failure or error. This is because some board failures
affect the card cage, preventing the system from completing a normal initialization. The minimum board configuration can assist in
diagnosing the cause of boot-up failures.

Distribution Boards

The card cage power and logic signals are routed through cables, from the back plane, to four distribution boards throughout the
instrument. Additional cables then route these signals from the distribution boards to the sub assemblies and components.

The four distribution boards on the Architect i1000SR are:

Processing Center Distribution Board


Reagent Distribution Board
Fluidics Distribution Board
RSH Distribution Board

In addition both the Carrier Transport and Pipettor Assemblies have circuit boards that interface power and logic signals.

Process Path

Overview

The Architect i1000SR process path provides the incubated environment for the reaction process to occur. Reaction vessels
containing sample and reagent are held in a disk that sits on top of a circular, heated track. This disk rotates in a counter-
clockwise direction, moving one position every 18 seconds. The process path provides access points for various sub assemblies to
perform steps involved in the assay sequence and reaction process. These include loading the RV into the path, liquid aspiration
and dispense locations, mixing (vortexing) locations, a reaction mixture washing location, the optics reading location and unloading
the RVs to waste.

Hardware Description

The following main hardware components are used in the Process Path sub-assembly:

Processing Center Distribution Board Processing Center Distribution Board

Processing Center Engineering Schematic 5A_9037.PDF

Process Path

The process path is a machined circular assembly that has two channels or tracks, which enclose the RV body. The process path
controls the incubation via heaters, which are mounted to the underside of the assembly. Thermistors for measuring the process
path temperature are embedded in the assembly. Two permanent magnets are mounted in the process path, at the optics read and
wash zone locations, and are used for microparticle capture when the RVs are positioned in front of these locations.

Process Path Disk

The process path disk supports the RVs as they sit in the process path. The disk indexes one RV position (832 steps) every 18
seconds, in a counter-clockwise direction, guiding the RVs as they are moved to the various locations. The process path motor
assembly rotates the disk. The disk has 23 RV positions. An optical home sensor is used as an absolute reference point during the
process path disk homing operation, and the home reference can be at any one of the 23 RV locations. The home sensor uses the
edge of the RV slot in the disk to monitor the disk position.

Process Path Cover

The process path cover sits over the disk, mounted to the process path assembly. It provides a mounting platform for the various
sub-assemblies that are attached to the path. The cover also acts to block stray light during the optics read process and assists in
maintaining the heated environment for RV incubation.

Process Path Motor

The process path disk is rotated by a 36VDC stepper motor. The motor is encoded so that each RV position has a "home" position.
The process path motor encoder monitors the disk rotation, and monitors for step-loss errors. Signals to and from the process path
motor and encoder route through the processing center distribution board. The process path motor is driven by motor driver board
#1, and encoder signals return to indexer board #1. The process path home sensor signal also returns to indexer board #1 via the
processing center distribution board.

Assay-Processing Sub-Assemblies

The following sub-assemblies are attached to the process path, and are used in the assay-processing sequence:

Vortexers (VTX)
Wash zone inlet diverter
Wash zone outlet diverter
RV unloader
RV unload diverter

Process Path Sub-Assemblies

In addition, the following sub-assemblies interface with the process path. These are covered in their relevant overview sections:

Optics read station (refer to overview section - CMIA Optics)


Wash zone assembly (refer to overview section - Fluidics and vacuum)
Process path LLS antennae (refer to overview section - Liquid level Sense)
RV loader (refer to overview section - Reaction Vessel Loader)
Heaters and thermistors (refer to overview section - Temperature and WAM)

Vortexers

Two vortexers are mounted to the process path:

Vortexer 1 is mounted to the inside of the process path and mixes the RV after sample and reagent have been dispensed,
at RV position 3, before the incubation period commences.
Vortexer 2 is mounted on the outside of the path and mixes the RV after pre-trigger solution has been added, prior to the
addition of trigger solution and the optics read process.

The vortexer motors are powered by 36VDC supplied by the DC Driver I/O board. The vortexer up/down sensor signals return to
the DC Driver I/O board. All power and sensor signals are routed through the processing center distribution board.

Wash Zone Inlet Diverter

This assembly diverts the RV into the wash zone path or keeps the RV traveling along the inner path. The diverter action is
solenoid controlled and powered by 36VDC from the DC Driver I/O board. The "on" sensor signal returns to the module controller
board while the "off" sensor signal returns to the CMIA optics board. All power and sensor signals are routed through the
processing center distribution board.

Wash Zone Outlet Diverter

This assembly diverts the RV out from the wash zone path back into the inner path, or keeps the RV traveling along the outer
path. The diverter action is solenoid controlled and powered by 36VDC from the DC Driver I/O board. The "on" sensor signal
returns to the module controller board while the "off" sensor signal returns to the CMIA optics board. All power and sensor signals
are routed through the processing center distribution board.

Unloader

This is a molded plug that acts as a passive diverter, channeling the RV to the solid waste opening. The RV is unloaded from the
outer track to the solid waste container, following the optics read process. It can be removed and reinserted upside down, allowing
RVs to bypass the waste unload and continue in the process path track. This is required during some M&D procedures. An optical
sensor positioned in the process path ensures that the unloader is in position; otherwise the system will not run. The sensor signal
returns to the CMIA optics board via the processing center distribution board.

Unload Diverter

This assembly unloads RVs used for pretreatment or sample dilutions, from the inner track to the solid waste container. It is used
in all pre-treatment protocols and some sample dilution assay protocols. The diverter action is solenoid controlled and powered by
36VDC from the DC Driver I/O board. The "on" sensor signal returns to the module controller board while the "off" sensor signal
returns to the CMIA optics board. All power and sensor signals are routed through the processing center distribution board.

Reaction Vessel Loader

Overview

The RV Loader provides onboard storage for the reaction vessels (RVs) orients the RVs and inserts the RVs into the inner track
on the process path.

Hardware Description

RV Loader subsystem consists of:

Upper Hopper
Lower Hopper
RV Picker and Motor
RV Loader Chute
Sensors

Functional Description

Upper Hopper

The upper hopper is a staging hopper section that can hold up to 125 RVs. It is designed so that the RVs can be poured into this
hopper through the RV hopper cover in the processing center cover. Between the upper and lower hopper is a solenoid driven
door.

Lower Hopper

The lower hopper is the main RV storage area and can hold up to 175 RVs in any orientation. The lower hopper has an infrared
sensor that will detect when the RV inventory falls below 50 (approximately). When this occurs, a signal is sent to the SCC. The
Architect software also tracks RV usage and monitors inventory, and when needed, actuates the RV hopper door solenoid, allowing
the RVs stored in the upper hopper to fall through into the lower hopper.

RV Picker

The RV picker has three fingers for picking and orientating the RV out of the RV inventory. A stepper motor rotates the picker.
Each finger is aligned with a slot in the home sensor flag. The motor power setting causes the picker assembly to vibrate as it
rotates - this assists in mixing the RVs which increases the efficiency of the picker fingers engaging with and picking up the
individual RV's. An RV remover brush located on the side of the RV hopper, just before the load chute entrance, will push into
place any RVs not fully seated on the picker finger as the picker assembly rotates.

RV Loader Chute

The RV loader chute guides the RV from the loader assembly and drops it into the process path track. One end engages at the top
of the hopper. The RV picker rotates with RVs trapped on the three fingers; at the top of the picker rotation, the RV is dropped into
the top of the chute. The loader chute lower opening interacts with the process path at the RV insertion point, allowing the RV to
fall cleanly into place in the process path disk. The loader chute pivots and can be folded up against the side of the RV loader
assembly, for ease of removal and replacement.

RV Picked Sensor

The RV picked sensor sits at the top of the loader at the opening to the RV loader chute. When the RV picker drops an RV into
the loader chute, the RV moves an arm, which interrupts an optical sensor, telling the system that an RV was successfully picked
up. During operation the picker is homed and the RV picked sensor is checked for presence of an RV. After the process path is
loaded with 23 RV's, one RV is staged at the RV picked sensor, ready for the next RV load when required. A hall effect (micro
switch) sensor also sits in the process path one position down from the insertion point, confirming the successful placement of an
RV in the path.

Robotic Sample Handler

Note
Refer to the c4000 Service and Support Manual for information regarding the ci4100 integrated system.

Overview

The ARCHITECT i1000SR RSH (Robotic Sample Handler) is the interface through which reagents are loaded on the reagent
carousel, and samples are presented to the system for identification, aspiration and processing. The operator places reagents or
samples into carriers, which are inserted on the load unload platform. The load unload platform contains 13 sections. The carrier
transport picks carriers from the load unload platform sections, positions them at the barcode reader for barcode label identification,
and then places the reagent carriers on the reagent carousel, and the sample carriers on the aspiration platform for sample
processing.

Hardware Description

The following main hardware components are used in the RSH sub-assembly:

Load Unload Platform


Carrier Transport
Left and Right Supports
Aspiration Platform
Bottle Rotator
Barcode Reader
RSH Distribution Board
Priority and Standard Load Unload Boards
Card Cage Boards (Module Controller, CMIA Optics, Motor Driver, Indexer)

Load Unload Platform

Operators load sample and reagent carriers on the load unload platform, which positions each carrier for transporting by the carrier
transport. The base of the load unload platform is called the section tray, and is separated into 13 sections by partitions. Each
section accommodates either a sample or a reagent carrier and can distinguish between the two carrier types. In the base of each
section tray is the carrier present flag, which interacts with a set of sensors mounted on the load unload sensor board. When a
carrier is inserted into a section, the carrier present flag is actuated and trips these sensors, indicating the presence and type of the
carrier. Light indicators attached to the load unload sensor board indicate the state of that particular section to the operator.

The load unload sensor board is actually 2 sensor boards linked using a single connector. These two boards mount to the front of
the load unload platform, behind a cover. They are held in place by three locating features and leaf springs. The first sensor board
is the priority load unload board while the second board is the standard load unload board. LEDs on the load unload sensor board
indicate carrier status. Green LEDs indicate the section is available or completed, while amber LEDs indicate a processing state.
Blue LEDs indicate that the section is a priority section. Up to seven sections can be configured for priority processing.

The cable chain guide is the structure located behind the load unload platform. It provides a guide for the movement of the carrier
transport flex cable, and protects the load unload carrier detection system from damage through flex cable movement. It also
provides support for the load unload platform.

Left and Right Supports

The left and right supports provide the mounting structure for the load unload platform. The left support also provides the mounting
structure for the bottle rotator, the barcode reader and the RSH distribution board.

Aspiration Platform

The aspiration platform sits behind the load unload platform and in front of the pipettor and washcup. It is the location at which the
sample carrier is placed for sample aspiration.

Carrier Transport

The carrier transport is a robotic device that interacts with the load unload platform, the aspiration platform and the reagent
carousel. The carrier transport assembly moves along the length of the load unload platform, riding on a linear rail guide. It
interacts with each section to pick up the sample or reagent carrier, and then places that carrier on the aspiration platform (sample)
or on the reagent carousel (reagent). It also returns sample carriers and empty reagent kits to the load unload platform for
unloading. The carrier transport consists of the following major components:

Carrier Transport Board: printed circuit board mounted to the carrier transport frame that interfaces all motor and sensor
signals
Theta Shaft with Motor: moves carriers in theta axis during pick and place operations
Carrier Transport Arm: attaches to theta shaft, supporting and retaining the carrier during pick and place operations
Carrier Transport Arm Sensor: sensor in carrier transport arm that detects presence of a carrier
Lifter with Leadscrew and Motor: attaches to the carrier transport arm and moves carriers in the Z (vertical) direction, raising
and lowering carriers during pick and place operations
X-axis Motor: drives the carrier transport along the rail guide in the x axis
Flex Cable: cable that carries the control and power signal information between the carrier transport board and the RSH
distribution board.
Bottle Rotator

The bottle rotator mounts to the left support. It is a rotating disk that engages with the reagent carrier drive cog, spinning the
microparticle bottle during the barcode scanning process.

Bar Code Reader

The bar code reader mounts to the left support and scans reagent bar codes, sample carrier ID bar codes and sample ID bar
codes.

RSH Distribution Board

The RSH distribution board is mounted to the left support, behind a protective cover. It provides the interface circuitry for all of the
RSH sensors and motors, the bar code reader, the reagent bottle rotator and the ambient temperature thermistor.

Operational Description

Section Indicator Status

Indicates the status of sample processing and when samples can be accessed.

Indicators off - no sample or reagent carriers are loaded in the section.


Green (steady) - sample or reagent carriers are loaded, but processing has not begun. Samples can be accessed.
Amber (steady) - sample or reagent carriers are processing and cannot be accessed.
Green (blinking) - processing is complete and sample or reagent carriers can be accessed.
Amber (blinking) - unloading a reagent carrier is in process so this section is unavailable for loading carriers.
Amber and green (alternating) - bar code scan or other error occurred. Carriers can be accessed.

Note
If tests for a sample are added or rerun before it is unloaded, the indicator for the section changes back to amber
while the sample is re-aspirated.
Carrier Detection

The load unload platform contains a carrier detection sensor system that can detect the presence of a carrier, and can differentiate
between a sample and a reagent carrier. Each section of the load/unload platform has a sensor arm (carrier present flag) recessed
in the base of the section tray. This sensor arm is spring loaded and in the resting state, remains in the raised position. When a
carrier is inserted into that section, the carrier presses down on the carrier present flag which then interrupts a set of optical
sensors.

There are 2 optical sensors in a staggered position, which can distinguish 4 states:

State 1 - No carrier inserted


State 2 - Partial carrier inserted - error status
State 3 - Sample carrier fully inserted
State 4 - Reagent carrier fully inserted

Sample and reagent carriers are differentiated through their different widths.

The narrower sample carrier presses down on the front section of the carrier present flag which drives the carrier present flag down
to interrupt both optical sensors.

The reagent carrier is wider and rides up on a ridge on the section tray. When sitting on this ridge, the reagent carrier presses
down on an extra sensor arm feature, which drives the carrier present flag down completely through the first optical sensor and
leaving it interrupting only the second optical sensor.
RSH Sample Processing

Samples, in primary tubes or sample cups, are placed in sample carriers. The sample carriers are then inserted into sections on
the load unload platform. Carriers in the priority sections are processed first, in the order they were inserted, followed by carriers
loaded in the routine sections.

Once sample carriers are loaded onto the load unload platform, the following occurs:

The carrier transport (CT) moves to the first carrier and picks it up out of that section. The system software and the carrier
detection sensors have already determined which sections contain reagent carriers and which contain sample carriers. The
system software prioritizes the processing order of the carriers.
The CT moves the carrier to the barcode reader where the carrier ID and sample IDs are scanned. The CT then returns the
carrier to its original section.
Based on the SID scanned, the system determines whether a test order request exists for each sample in the carrier. If test
orders exist, the CT picks up the carrier and places it on the aspiration platform. Module optimization software determines
the processing order for each test requested on that carrier.
The pipettor aspirates from each sample, as determined by the optimization (scheduling) software. The CT then picks up the
carrier and moves it to each subsequent sample position for aspiration. In this way, each sample that has test orders is
presented for sample aspiration by the pipettor. However, each carrier is not necessarily processed in the sample position
order 1 - 5. Once sample aspiration is complete for all samples in the carrier, the CT moves the carrier back to the load
unload platform.
Blinking green indicator lights on the load unload platform indicate that sample aspiration for all samples on that carrier has
been completed and the carrier can be removed by the operator.

Module Optimization software maximizes sample processing throughput, by determining the most efficient processing order for all
tests on the samples in each carrier. The software sets the order in which tests in a carrier are scheduled, and applies optimization
rules to each test to find the most efficient lockstep for that test initiation. A test that is scheduled first does not necessarily mean
that it will be initiated first. The time of initiation is determined by the optimization rules.

There are several steps the software goes through to schedule and process tests for i1000SR.

Sample orders downloaded - All the samples in a carrier are scanned by the bar code reader and orders are downloaded
from the SCC.
Scheduling tests for samples in the carrier - the software schedules any RETEST tests first followed by PRE-TREATMENT
tests, STAT-Protocol tests, and then ROUTINE-Protocol tests. A scheduling window of 10 possible test initiation locksteps
for each test is established.
Optimization of test schedule for the carrier - Three optimization rules are applied to each lockstep in the scheduling window
and then the software determines the lockstep to be used to initiate the test. The software reschedules STAT-protocol and
ROUTINE-protocol tests of the same type to improve module throughput.

RSH Reagent Processing

Reagent kits are loaded onto the reagent carousel through the load unload platform in an automated process. Kits are loaded on
reagent carriers. Each carrier has a specific, color-coded seat for each type of reagent bottle. The microparticle bottle position is a
rotating seat, connected to a cogwheel.

This cogwheel engages with the bottle rotator at the bar code reader scan position so that when a reagent carrier is presented for
scanning, the microparticle bottle is rotated in front of the bar code reader beam, allowing a successful label read.

The cogwheel also engages with the support gear ring on the reagent carousel causing microparticle bottle dispersion when the
reagent carousel rotates.

When a reagent kit is presented to the load unload platform for loading, the system software determines when an acceptable timing
opportunity exists in between sample processing, to allow the reagent to be loaded without interrupting the lockstep routine.

Upon initiation of the reagent loading, the carrier transport picks up the reagent carrier and moves it to the bar code read position.
The CT lowers the carrier until the microparticle seat cogwheel engages with the spinning bottle rotator disk. All 3 bottle positions
are then scanned. If a valid read is obtained, the carrier transport then moves the reagent carrier to the reagent carousel load
position and loads it on the carousel. This process is covered in more detail in the reagent handling overview.

The system software automatically schedules an empty reagent kit or a kit with LLS failure for unloading. When there is a timing
opportunity as determined by the software, the carrier transport picks up the reagent carrier from the reagent carousel and moves it
back to the load unload platform for removal by the operator.

Temperature and WAM

Overview

The temperature subsystem on the Architect i1000SR instrument allows the monitoring and control of sub assemblies that are
required to operate at specific temperatures. Temperature control includes the ability to both monitor a temperature and provide
feedback to adjust that temperature in order to maintain a desired set point. Temperature monitoring involves reading a
temperature for reporting purposes, but without the means to adjust that temperature. Temperatures are monitored by using
embedded thermistors in the various heater subassemblies. A thermistor is a temperature dependent variable resistor. Because the
resistance of a thermistor changes as its temperature fluctuates, it can be used as a temperature sensor.

The areas with temperature control are the Process Path, the Wash Zone, the Pre-trigger/Trigger Manifold, the Reagent Cover and
the Reagent Cooler. The Wash Zone aspiration process uses temperature monitoring (Wash Aspirate Monitoring) to verify a
successful washing step in the reaction sequence.

Biological reactions usually occur at human body temperature; subsequently assay reactions occur most efficiently when the
reagents and samples are incubated. During the Architect i1000SR assay sequence, the sample / reagent mixture in the RVs is
incubated in the Process Path, which is divided into 3 heating zones. Temperature control is used to maintain the correct
incubation temperature of the Process Path heaters. At the Wash Zone, temperature control is used to ensure that the wash buffer
solution introduced into reaction vessels does not adversely change the incubation temperature. At the Pre-trigger/Trigger Manifold,
temperature control is used to ensure that Pre-trigger or Trigger solution introduced into reaction vessels does not adversely
change the incubation temperature. Temperature control is used to ensure that the Reagent Cooler maintains the reagent carousel
bay at the correct temperature for optimal reagent kit performance and stability. The Reagent Cover Heater also uses temperature
control to prevent condensation from forming around the pipettor access holes, in conditions of extreme humidity.

Temperature monitoring is used during wash aspiration to verify that heated wash buffer is actually aspirated and the wash process
is completed successfully. An ambient temperature sensor also measures the environment temperature within the processing
module enclosure.

Hardware Description

The following main hardware components are used in the temperature control and monitoring subsystems:

Temperature Controller Board


Heater Cooler Board
Module Controller Board
Processing Center Distribution Board
Reagent Distribution Board
RSH Distribution Board
Reagent Cooler Assembly
Process Path Heaters
Trigger / Pre-trigger Heater
WZ Buffer Heater
Reagent Cover Heater
Thermistors

Temperature Controller Board

The Temperature Controller Board is located in the instrument card cage. Settings for temperature control are stored in the
embedded software. Its main function is to receive information from thermistors, process the information received and issue heater
control instructions to the Heater Cooler Board.
Heater Cooler Board

The Heater Cooler Board provides the power control for the system heaters and thermoelectric coolers. It receives heater control
commands from the temperature controller board and directs power to the applicable heaters. All heaters operate at 24 VDC and
the reagent cooler operates at 17.5 VDC. The Heater Cooler Board also provides power to drive the Vacuum Pump, the Transfer
Pump and the Waste Pump. The Heater Cooler Board is located in the instrument card cage.

Distribution Boards

Various distribution boards located throughout the processing module are used to route the heater power and thermistor signals,
between the card cage and the heater assemblies.

Process Path Heater

The Process Path is heated by a flexible heater pad mounted to the base. The heater pad is divided into 3 heating zones. There is
one power input connection for the entire pad, but each zone is controlled independently for better temperature distribution around
the process path, and each zone has its own thermistor for feedback control. The main function of these heaters is to provide the
heat necessary to maintain the process path at the set incubation temperature. The 24 VDC to drive these heaters is supplied by
the Heater Cooler Board. Thermistor signals return to the Temperature Controller Board. The heater power and thermistor
monitoring signals are routed via the Processing Center Distribution Board.

WZ Buffer Heater

The WZ Buffer Heater preheats wash buffer before it is dispensed into reaction vessels during the CMIA wash cycle. The Buffer
Heater is a cylindrical tubing block containing a heating element and thermistor, and has one connector for both power input and
thermistor signal return. The 24 VDC to drive this heater is supplied by the Heater Cooler Board. The thermistor signal returns to
the Temperature Controller Board. The heater power and thermistor monitoring signals are routed via the Processing Center
Distribution Board.

Trigger and Pre-trigger Heater

The Trigger / Pre-trigger heater preheats the Trigger and Pre-trigger Solutions before they are dispensed into reaction vessels. The
solutions are heated in the one heater device, which maintains separation of the 2 reagent lines. The T/PT Heater is a cylindrical
tubing block containing a heating element and thermistor, and has one connector for both power input and thermistor signal return.
The 24 VDC to drive this heater is supplied by the Heater Cooler Board. The thermistor signal returns to the Temperature
Controller Board. The heater power and thermistor monitoring signals are routed via the Reagent Distribution Board.

Reagent Cover Heater

The Reagent Cover Heater is embedded in the reagent cover assembly, and consists of a heating pad that encircles each of the
three (3) pipettor access holes. This heater assembly contains the heater element and the control thermistor, and has one
connector for both power input and thermistor signal return. The 24 VDC to drive this heater is supplied by the Heater Cooler
Board. The thermistor signal returns to the Temperature Controller Board. The heater power and thermistor monitoring signals are
routed via the Processing Center Distribution Board. Currently this heater is not replaceable, and if failure occurs, must be replaced
as part of the complete Reagent Cover assembly.

Reagent Cooler

The i1000SR Reagent Cooler is a Thermo Electric Device (TED) based cooling system. It maintains the reagent carousel area at
the correct temperature by providing and circulating chilled air, thus ensuring reagent stability is maintained. There are eight TEDs
sandwiched between cold and hot-side heat sinks. An upper fan mounted on the top of the cooler (on the cold-side heat sink)
pushes and circulates the air over the reagents. A lower fan mounted to the underside of the reagent carousel area and hot-side
heat sink removes any heat generated to the environment.

The Reagent Cooler is mounted on the instrument base, inside the reagent carousel area and a handle is provided to lift the cooler
out of the reagent carousel area if required. The Cooler is powered by 17.5 VDC supplied by the Heater Cooler Board.
Temperature control is achieved using a PID controller and a thermistor mounted on the cold-side heat sink. This thermistor signal
returns directly to the Heater Cooler Board. Based on this thermistor feedback, the PID controller regulates the power to the Cooler
TEDs using Pulse Width Modulation (PWM), maintaining them at the designated set point. A separate thermistor is mounted inside
the reagent carousel area and provides the temperature monitoring function. This thermistor signal is fed back to the Temperature
Controller and represents the current temperature inside the reagent carousel area.

The Reagent Cooler uses eight Thermo Electric Devices or TEDs. A TED takes the place of a compressor-driven refrigerator, and
can provide the same cooling effect in a smaller space. A TED is a semi-conductor based electronic component that acts like a
heat pump. By applying a DC power source to the TED, heat is moved from one side to the other. This cools one face while
simultaneously heating the other. In a thermoelectric cooling system, a semiconductor material takes the place of the liquid
refrigerant and compressor and heat sinks replace the condenser and evaporator. The application of DC current to the TED causes
electrons to move through the semiconductor material from one side to the other. At the cold or freezer end, heat is absorbed by
the electron movement, moved through the material and expelled at the hot end. Because the hot end is attached to a heat sink,
the heat is transferred to the environment by the lower fan. The eight TEDs are arranged electronically as four individually
controlled channels (TED channels 1-4), where each channel consists of two TED devices in series. If any single TED device fails,
it will cause an entire channel (two TED devices) to fail to operate. However, the other three channels will remain operational.

Condensate generated by the Reagent Cooler is removed by the waste pump, through the liquid waste system. When the
processing module is first powered on and initialized, the waste pump will run for two minutes to evacuate any cooler condensate
that has collected, through the lower waste manifold to the onboard liquid waste reservoir, or to external waste. The system
software will also run the waste pump for about a minute to evacuate any cooler condensate that has collected, approximately
every three hours. This will occur in any system state, including Stopped status. Additionally, any excess condensate not evacuated
through the waste system, will overflow into a collection area in the baseplate underneath the cooler, and will be evaporated by the
cooler fan. There is an additional overflow drain to the floor that will prevent excess condensate overflowing into the processing
module, if either of the first two condensate-removal systems fail.

Ambient Temperature Monitoring

Ambient temperature monitoring is used to measure the environment temperature within the processing module enclosure, and is
an aid for troubleshooting temperature problems that may be environmental in nature. The ambient temperature thermistor is
mounted on the RSH distribution board. Ambient temperature measurements are not used in any active feedback or control on the
instrument, and are not linked to any error generation.

Wash Aspirate Monitoring (WAM)

The dispense and aspiration of heated wash buffer solution into an RV during the wash process, is monitored using Wash Aspirate
Monitoring (WAM). Wash Aspirate Monitoring confirms that the wash buffer was dispensed and subsequently aspirated completely
within the allotted time. A WAM determination is based on temperature measurements taken at 1 millisecond intervals. The WAM
thermistor is located inside the temperature tubing and sensor that is connected to the Wash Zone Probe. A normal wash
aspiration produces a temperature profile with predictable characteristics.

As the Wash Zone Probe descends into the reaction vessel, vacuum is applied causing ambient air to be drawn through the tubing.
This results in a small decrease in temperature sensed by thermistor. As heated buffer is aspirated from the RV and drawn into the
tubing, the temperature sensed by thermistor rises abruptly. When the RV is empty and the probe is clear, free-flowing air over
residual buffer droplets, results in evaporative cooling. This is sensed by thermistor as a drop in temperature.

In a normal aspiration, the magnitude of the temperature change due to evaporative cooling is substantial. The resulting
temperature drop is compared to a pre-determined threshold. From this comparison, determination of failure or success of the
aspiration is made. Wash aspiration failure can be caused by probe or tubing blockage, vacuum system malfunction or buffer
dispense system malfunction.

WAM temperature measurements are saved in a WAM log file on the module, for use in troubleshooting. The information saved in
the WAM log includes the peak temperature read during aspiration as well as the subsequent cooling temperature change.
Temperature entries in the log are reported in degrees Celsius.

The WAM thermistor monitoring signals are routed back to the card cage via the Processing Center Distribution Board.

Temperature Set Points

The i1000SR temperature set points are determined by the system software and are not adjustable in the field. Temperatures are
reported in degrees Celsius

Process Path Zone 1 36.4 - 37.6°C 37.0°C

Temperature Controller Board Temperature Controller Board

Temperature Subsystem Temperature Subsystem

Temperature Subsystem Heating and Control

Each Architect i1000SR heater consists of a heating element and thermistor, embedded in the heater assembly or process path.
The thermistor sends temperature signals to the Temperature Controller Board in the card cage, which processes the signals and
sends control signals to the Heater Cooler Board also located in the card cage. The Heater Cooler Board, based on the control
signal it receives, either increases or decreases power to the heater to maintain temperature at a specific set point and within a
specific range. The temperature range and set point for each heater is set by the temp.dat system file. This temperature control
system for each heater uses two electronic control techniques.

Proportional Integral Derivative (PID) Control

PID control is an electronic feedback-based control system that eliminates the need for continuous operator attention. PID control
uses a microcontroller to automatically adjust a variable to maintain that variable at a designated set point. Cruise control in a car
is a common example of PID control. The Architect i1000SR heaters are PID controlled systems. Each heater is maintained at a
temperature set point, which is determined by the temp.dat system file. The Temperature Controller Board sends commands to the
Heater Cooler Board to switch power to a heater on or off depending on whether the temperature rises above, or falls below the
set point. Each heater has a control thermistor which provides the current temperature feedback to the Temperature Controller. If a
heater temperature falls below the set point, the controller commands the Heater Cooler board to direct power to the heater until
the set point is reached, at which point the controller commands the HC board to turn power off again. PID control is a constantly
cycling, active control circuit.

Pulse Width Modulation (PWM)

PWM is an electronic method for controlling analog circuits using a digital signal. The Architect i1000SR heater thermistor circuits
are analog and have a continuously varying value, as each heater temperature gradually rises or falls. PWM is an efficient way of
providing power to the heater elements using a digital square wave signal to switch the heaters on and off at a set rate. The
frequency of this switching signal determines how much power is supplied to the heater and therefore how quickly the heater can
reach is temperature set point and maintain that setting. Circuitry on the Temperature Controller Board sets the PWM frequency,
which in turn switches the heater power outputs, located on the Heater Cooler Board, on and off as required.
Temperature Subsystem Channels

The temperature controller board has 32 channels, used for both active heater and monitoring circuits and also for reference
circuits.

6 channels are used for the active heater circuits - process path zones x 3, the WZ buffer heater, the T/PT heater, and the
Reagent Cover Heater.
4 channels are internal reference channels.
5 channels are used for thermistor monitoring - the reagent cooler temperature monitoring, the 3 WAM thermistors and the
ambient temperature monitor.
10 channels are reserved and require a temperature controller board hardware change prior to usage.
7 channels are spare and are reserved for future usage.

The heater and cooler circuits are referenced by their channel numbers in user-interface error messages. The following table
names each heater and the corresponding channel identification.

Error Handling

Heater Control Error Handling

The temperature controller board monitors the temperature of each heater zone for stability using temperature interrupts. A heater
zone generates a temperature interrupt when the temperature signal received by the temperature Controller Board is outside of the
range set in the temp.dat file. A heater zone is flagged as unstable when ten temperature interrupts are received within two
minutes. An error message is generated if any heater zone becomes unstable, and the zone is disabled.

Reagent Cooler Error Handling

The refrigerator cooling and control is controlled through the Heater Cooler board. LEDs for over and under temperature are
located on the board. The Heater Cooler board also monitors for the following four alarm states, and generates an error message
accordingly:

Cooler thermistor shorted


Cooler thermistor open
Reagent cooler fan stalled
Cooler control out of sync
If the cooler temperature exceeds the programmed limits for longer than two hours, the shelf life of the reagents is threatened. This
is determined in software by keeping track of interrupts. If more than 430 interrupts occur within any half-hour period, a message is
sent to the SCC to alert the operator of a temperature control failure. Following this alert, further alerts are suppressed until after
the alert is reset and the equilibration timer expires.

Temperature Subsystem Initialization

When the processing module is first powered up, the temperature system remains inactive until the TFTP download and POST has
completed. At this point the Temperature Controller Board initializes and power to the heaters is switched on. The heater zones are
powered constantly until the various set points are reached. When set points are achieved, the PID controller continues to monitor,
and maintains the heater zone temperatures based on the temperature feedback loop.

The reagent cover heater is treated a little differently when an instrument is first powered up. The system software will treat the
reagent cover heater channel as immediately warmed up, meaning that the instrument can enter the ready state without waiting for
the reagent cover heater channel to warm. Control of the channel will be immediately turned on but monitoring will be delayed for 1
hour. The reason for this is that the cover heater can take substantial time to reach its set point from a cold start, which would keep
the instrument in Warming status until this occurs. However, this heater is present only to evaporate condensation around the
pipettor access holes, which may occur in conditions of extreme humidity. The build up of condensation takes quite a few hours to
occur when high humidity is present, and so this heater is not functionally required until the instrument has been running in a high
humidity environment for a considerable period of time. During this 1-hour delay, control of the channel is enabled so that the
heater continues to warm up, but the stability interrupt errors will not be monitored until the 1-hour time period has elapsed. Once
the delay time has elapsed, normal channel monitoring will be enabled and any temperature alarms from this point on will be
handled in the same way as for all heater channels.

Reagent Management

Overview

The Architect i1000SR Reagent Management System stores, refrigerates and monitors the on-board reagents, and positions the
reagents for aspiration by the pipettor when required during assay processing. The reagent carousel area is an insulated chamber
that houses both the reagent carousel and reagent cooler, and provides on-board refrigerated storage for the assay reagents. The
reagent cooler provides and circulates chilled air, maintaining the reagents at the appropriate temperature for optimum stability and
performance. The reagent carousel can hold 25 reagent carriers, and positions the reagents for aspiration by the pipettor as
required. Reagent carriers are loaded onto the reagent carousel by the carrier transport assembly, through an access door in the
carousel area.

Hardware Description

The following main hardware components are used in the Reagent Management System:

Reagent Carousel Area (cooling bay)


Reagent Carousel
Dispersion Ring Gear
Reagent Carousel Motor
Carrier Latch Actuator
Reagent Carrier
Card Cage and Distribution boards

The Reagent Cooler is covered in detail in the Temperature and WAM section and the Carrier transport assembly is covered in
detail in the RSH subsystem section.

Reagent Carousel Area

The Reagent Carousel Area is an insulated chamber that is built up from the instrument base. It has a hinged cover with counter-
balance so the cover will stay raised when opened by an operator. The cover locks in place using a catch that rotates into the
locked position by a twist handle. The reagent carousel area houses the reagent carousel, the reagent cooler and associated
structures. The reagent carousel area cover has an access door that opens to allow the carrier transport to load a reagent carrier
onto the carousel. When reagent carriers are not being loaded, the cover remains closed in order to maintain the refrigeration
temperature. The cover also contains an embedded heater assembly that prevents condensation from forming around the pipettor
access holes.

A sensor monitors the reagent carousel area cover. If the cover is opened, the system software will initiate the unloading of all
reagent carriers currently loaded on the reagent carousel. This requires that they be re-scanned before reloading, to ensure the
correct identification of each reagent kit in each carousel position. A second, battery powered auxiliary sensor is also used so that
the system software can still determine if the reagent carousel area cover is opened when the Processing Module is powered
down. Upon initialization of the Processing Module once it is powered on, the system software interrogates the auxiliary sensor; if it
is determined that the cover has been raised during the time that the Processing Module has been powered off, then all reagent
carriers will be unloaded from the reagent carousel. If the cover has not been opened, the system software determines that the
reagent kit identification has not been compromised and does not initiate the reagent kit unloading.

Reagent Carousel Area without Carousel


Reagent Carousel Area with Carousel

Reagent Carousel

The reagent carousel is held in position by three v-wheels, mounted to the central dispersion ring gear. The external edge of the
carousel sits in the V-wheel groove allowing its rotation. Two of the v-wheels are in fixed positions while the third is mounted to a
spring-loaded retaining structure. This is attached to a release lever, allowing easy removal and installation of the carousel. Along
the inner edge of the carousel is a molded gear ring that engages with the carousel drive motor causing it to rotate. The carousel
home flag is an embedded ferrous pin that also acts as a training tool for aligning the pipettor with the carousel, during the pipettor
calibration. The home sensor is a magnetic hall-effect sensor. The reagent carousel home sensor signal routes through the
reagent distribution board back to the card cage.

The reagent carousel can hold 25 reagent carriers. Each carrier is held in an individual position on the carousel and is locked in
place by a retaining slide (known as a carrier slide) and spring. The reagent carrier is placed into the initial load position on the
carousel by the carrier transport. The carrier slide, which is under pressure from the spring, then pushes the reagent carrier forward
until it engages with the ring gear. The spring maintains this pressure on the slide, keeping the carrier engaged with the ring gear.

Carrier Positioner

The Carrier Positioner is a passive device mounted to the inside wall of the reagent carousel area, and is used to ensure the
carriers are fully engaged with the dispersion ring gear while seated on the carousel. As the carousel rotates, carriers will rotate
past and engage with the Carrier Positioner, which will push each carrier fully into the engaged position with the ring gear. This
ensures each carrier is seated correctly on the carousel and that optimal reagent dispersion is occurring.

Reagent Carousel Motor Assembly

The reagent carousel motor assembly engages the drive motor pinion gear with the reagent carousel ring gear. The drive motor
mount is a spring-loaded assembly. The motor pinion gear engages the carousel ring gear when the carousel motor assembly is
locked into position. When the assembly is unlocked, the motor is pulled away from the drive gear, allowing the carousel to rotate
freely in the v-wheels, and be removed as required. The carousel motor assembly is locked and unlocked by a release lever.
Turning the release lever counter-clockwise unlocks and releases the motor, while turning the lever clockwise engages the motor
pinion gear with the carousel. The reagent carousel motor rotation is monitored by an encoder, which monitors for step loss events.
Signals for both the motor and encoder route through the reagent distribution board.

Reagent Carrier Detect Sensor

The reagent carrier detect sensor is mounted on the ring gear, and detects the presence of a reagent carrier in each position of the
carousel as the carousel rotates. The reagent carrier detect sensor signal routes through the reagent distribution board back to the
card cage.

Dispersion Ring Gear

The dispersion ring gear assembly provides a fixed gear that interacts with gears on the individual reagent carriers in order to
rotate the microparticle reagent bottles. Microparticle dispersion occurs when the drive motor rotates the reagent carousel. As the
carousel rotates, each reagent carrier dispersion gear, already engaged with the fixed gear ring, also rotates, causing the reagent
dispersion action. The ring gear assembly also provides a mounting support for the three v-wheels, allowing smooth rotation of the
reagent carousel. The ring gear is mounted to the reagent carousel area base structure.

Reagent Access Door

The reagent access door is a sliding door that moves on a linear bearing, driven by a gear assembly connected to a motor. Two
through-beam sensors provide positional control. One sensor is the home position, when the door is closed. The other sensor is
the door open position. The drive motor is a 24VDC stepper motor. The motor power and two sensor signals are all routed through
one connector and route between the card cage and the assembly via the reagent distribution board.

Carrier Latch Actuator Assembly

The carrier latch actuator assembly mounts to the instrument base in the reagent carousel area.

The carrier latch actuator arm rotates on a shoulder screw, and is held in place by an extension spring attached to the cooling
chamber base. When the latch actuator is not engaged by the carrier transport, the extension spring pulls the actuator into the
resting position, away from the carousel so as to not interfere with carousel rotation. A sensor detects whether the latch actuator is
engaged or not. However, this sensor is only used during the Carrier Transport robocal procedure to set the correct engagement
position, and is not utilized during routine loading and unloading of reagent carriers. This sensor signal routes via the reagent
distribution board.

When the carrier transport is loading or unloading a reagent carrier on the carousel, the carrier transport engages with and pushes
in the carrier actuator lever. The lever in turn causes the actuator arm to pull back, also pulling back on the retaining slide. This
positioning of the retaining slide ensures the carrier, whether loading or unloading, is positioned with the retaining tabs free of the
retaining slots. When the carrier transport withdraws, the carrier actuator lever, under pressure from the extension spring, returns to
its resting position, away from the carrier. This allows the carrier latch spring to extend, pushing the slide forward. This in turn
causes the carrier retaining tabs to engage with the slots, locking the carrier into position, also causing the dispersion gear to
engage with the gear ring.

Reagent Carrier

The reagent carrier holds the Architect assay reagent bottles. Each carrier can hold up to three bottles for a kit. Most assays use
two or three bottles but there are some pre-treatment assays that require up to six bottles, spread over two carriers. The dispersion
position rotates, driven by a dispersion gear wheel. Refer to the operations manual for more information on the reagent kit bottles,
and assay types.

The reagent carrier has 2 retaining tabs on the underside of the base. These slide into corresponding retaining slots, located in
each carrier position on the reagent carousel. These retaining tabs ensure the carrier remains locked into position, and engaged
with the dispersion ring gear. There is also an engagement slot for the retaining slide to hook into, so it can move the carrier
forwards or backwards as dictated by the latch actuator operation.

Overview

Overview

The ARCHITECT ARM is designed to automatically dilute concentrated wash buffer to the correct concentration and to deliver it to
the wash buffer reservoir on the processing module. The module is connected to a DI water supply and is loaded with a 10 L
container of wash buffer. A single motor, operating at a constant speed geared to drive two pumps at a 9:1 ratio to each other,
pumps the necessary portions of water and concentrated wash buffer into a mixing chamber. The diluted wash buffer is then
delivered to the buffer valve on the inlet buffer assembly in the processing module. From the buffer valve, the diluted wash buffer
is delivered to the on board wash buffer reservoir.

In its current configuration, the ARCHITECT ARM can only be used as an automatic system controlled by system software.
However, previous versions of the module could be used in a manual mode to dilute buffer for manual loading and some of these
previous version units are still in use in the field.

ARM Specifications

Water Specification

The ARCHITECT ARM site water specification includes:

Type: Reagent grade type II water or better


Pressure: 8-100 psi
Flow rate: 100 L/hr if pressure is greater than 15 psig, or 132 L/hr or greater if pressure is 8-15 psig

During operation of the module, the water temperature must be between 14.7° C and 37.0° C. This is required for assay
performance on the processing module. The water quality, pressure, temperature, and flow are monitored by the module hardware
and if any of these requirements are not met, the hardware does not function.
Electrical Specification

The ARCHITECT ARM site electrical specification includes:

Line voltage: 90-132 VAC at 60 Hz or 180-264 VAC at 50 Hz

The system is shipped with power cords and fuses for both line voltages. The system has a maximum current rating of 1.5 Amps.

Modes of Operation

When power is applied to the ARCHITECT ARM the unit goes to a Stop Mode. This mode indicates that power is applied, but the
unit is not in operational mode and does not respond to buffer transfer requests. Whenever the Stop key is pressed, the system
stops all operations and the red indicator below the key illuminates.

During system installation, the buffer pickup assembly must be calibrated. This procedure is only needed when a buffer pickup
assembly is installed. The level sensor is connected while the buffer pickup assembly is hanging freely and not placed in liquid.
The Bottle Load key is pressed and the amber indicator below the key flashes. While the indicator is flashing, the level sensor
cable is disconnected.

Whenever a new 10 L container is loaded, the unit must be placed in Bottle Load Mode from the Stopped Mode. The buffer
pickup assembly is placed in the new 10 L container, the level sensor cable is connected, and the tubing is connected to the
concentrated wash buffer inlet. The bottle Load key is pressed and the amber indicator under the key illuminates. During this time,
the level of the tubing in the 10 L container is read and the buffer level is calibrated to full. The indicator under the Flush Key
illuminates briefly and then the green Start indicator illuminates.

The green Start Key is pressed to prepare the module to respond to buffer transfer requests. Once the key is pressed, the unit is
placed in Ready Mode and the green indicator below the Start Key illuminates. While in Ready Mode, the module responds to
buffer transfer requests.

The SCC generates a buffer transfer request when both of the following occur:

Buffer is being consumed during an auto flush or test processing


The lower or middle sensor on the buffer level sensor of the processing module changes state

Note
Selecting Update Supplies (Supply Status Screen) and Add Buffer also generates a transfer request.

Once a transfer request is received, the unit goes to Initialize Mode.

Initialize Mode (see Fluidics Components, Normal Operation Mode)

Valve 3 opens and DI water is flushed for 15 seconds to drain (indicated by the green line in Fluidics Components, Normal
Operation Mode).
Water pressure, temperature and resistance are checked.
If the checks pass, the pump begins to open valves 1 and 4 and closes valve 3 (indicated by the red line in Fluidics
Components, Normal Operation Mode).
The buffer is sent to the drain until the temperature, water, and buffer quality are correct.
The Green indicator below the Start key illuminates.

If all of the initialization checks pass, the ARCHITECT ARM transitions to Run Mode with no additional user input.

Run Mode (see Fluidics Components, Normal Operation Mode)

Buffer delivery request received from the System Control Center.


Buffer delivery mode entered by opening valve 2 and closing valve 4 (indicated by the blue line in Fluidics Components,
Normal Operation Mode).
All initialization checks pass.
Temperature, inlet pressure, outlet pressure, quality of buffer, flood, and CUBITAINER buffer level constantly monitored.
Green LED under the Start Key flashes (as buffer is being delivered to the ARCHITECT ARM).

Fluidics Components, Normal Operation Mode

Decontamination Mode (see ARCHITECT ARM Fluidics Flush Mode)

The decontamination mode provides a routine method to eliminate any microbial growth that may occur normally within the system.
Although the buffer contains an antimicrobial agent, the decontamination mode is still a beneficial part of routine maintenance. The
decontamination must be followed carefully to ensure that only properly diluted buffer is transferred to the i System.

Before entering the decontamination mode, the stop key is pressed and the diluted wash buffer output tubing is disconnected from
the rear of the ARCHITECT ARM. Additional tubing is used to connect the diluted wash buffer outlet port and decontamination
port 1, and to connect decontamination port 2 and the concentrated wash buffer inlet.

Both the Start and Decon keys are pressed at the same time.
The green LED under the Start key illuminates and the Decon LED blinks.
Valves 1, 2 and 4 open and the pump flushes water for 10 minutes.
Valves 3 and 4 are opened and the pump continues for an additional 5 minutes.
After 15 minutes, the Decon LED stops blinking and illuminates green.
The pump stops and all valves are closed.

To exit the decontamination mode, the tubing installed is removed, the normal operation tubing is reconnected, and Stop is
pressed.

ARCHITECT ARM Fluidics Flush Mode

Electrical Components

The electrical system is designed for simplicity with limited component replacement. Chassis ground cannot be used when
checking voltages on the circuit boards. When checking voltages on the circuit boards, the positive and negative test points on the
board must be used.

1.4 System Control Center Overview

(Document Control Number 96948-102)

The System Control Center (SCC) provides a centralized interface through which the operator can control the instrument and enter
the patient, calibrator or control sample information into the system. It is also the interface for entry and receipt of test order
information, either through operator entry or through a Laboratory Information System (LIS) interface.

The SCC is common to the i System modules and is comprised of components of a personal computer workstation. Software
resident in the SCC module performs data reduction and release of test results, and provides an interface to the sample handlers.
The SCC is shared by assay processing modules in multi-module instruments through networking hardware and software; there is
a single SCC per product configuration. An Ethernet controller on the controller boards allows the processing module and sample
handler communications with the SCC. Additional external SCC hardware components allow connectivity to a variety of products
via the Ethernet network. The additional SCC connectivity hardware is comprised of an external network hub and cables.

Note
The Ethernet network is only used for the Abbott components (modules). It is not intended for connecting to external
systems (i.e. to a LIS).

Liquid Level Sensor (LLS) Board

Overview

This document lists the output codes and meanings associated with the LLS 4-digit display and the 12 discrete LEDs on the LLS
PCB. When troubleshooting the LLS sub-system, this display can help the process by providing the lower level operational
information leading to a system fault. The display cycles through 8 modes listed below. Each mode is depicted by a short (up to 4-
digit) message that displays a mode and is followed by the value of the mode listed below. The first message displays the overall
mode of the LLS PCB itself.

4 Digit Display

Function LED Name Color
Location

DS1 The PM Self Test LED comes ON when the board is reset and goes ON if the self test Self Test PM Green
fails. Fail

DS2 The LLS Self Test LED comes ON when the board is reset and goes ON if the self Self Test LLS Green
test fails. Fail
DS3 This LED is ON if the aspiration fails to pass all tests. PM Pass/Fail Green

DS4 LED is ON if limit to the FMI pump is active. FMI Limit Green

DS5 LED is ON if limit to the pipettor theta axis is active. Theta Limit Green

DS6 LED is ON if limit to the pipettor z axis motor is active. Z Limit Green

DS7 This LED is ON if any type of detection is active (TRN1, TRN2 or ENABLE). LLS Threshold Green

DS8 This LED is ON if the crash sensor is active. Crash Sensor Green

DS9 ON when the +5V is present. +5V Green

DS10 This LED is ON if the A/D data is greater than 25% of the threshold setting. LLS Noise Amber

DS11 This LED indicates a normal LLS detection has occurred. LLS Detect Green

DS12 * See Note Below LLS CPU Alive Green

* DS12 is a blinking LED on the LLS/PM board to indicate if the LLS is alive. This LED is controlled by the LLS processor only
and does not indicate the status of the PM DSP. The LED blinks fast at power on, before the LLS thresholds are sent (about 5
times a second). If the LLS POST (power on self test) fails the LED blinks slowly (about 1 time every 2 seconds). The LED will
begin the normal blink mode after system parameters have been loaded from the Module Controller. In normal operation the LED
will blink about 2 times per second. This allows a quick inspection to indicate if a problem occurred during power on or if the
initialization parameters have been sent to the LLS DSP. The LED display will provide additional information if the board has
detected a failure. If the firmware is not operating correctly the LED may either be on or off indicating an active interrupt.
