  5. Standard Testing Measuring Diagnostic Method
    The 7th tab is devoted to Standard Testing Methods.  The SEAL AQ1 is simple to operate and it is quite simple to test that it is operating correctly.  The Measuring Diagnostics test is designed to detect problems:
    •   Dirty Cuvette - The most common problem, easily remedied by the "Extra Wash" function.
    •   Hydraulic Problems - Worn pump tubes, pumps need cleaning and Lubrication - Monthly Maintenance Checklist items
    •   Electronic Noise
  6. Standard Testing Dye Calibration and Precision
    The Dye Calibration Testing (7th tab) is used to check the operation of the syringe, optical filter and the hydraulic system of the AQ1.  By taking a solution of a known concentration and asking the AQ1 to create a calibration curve, we can see if the AQ1 is operating correctly. This is a very useful trouble shooting procedure.
