Empower Blank Subtraction does not work for multiple sample sets or process-only sample sets - WKB18343

Article number: 18343

SYMPTOMS

  • When using multiple sample sets for blank subtraction or creating a process-only sample set, blank subtraction from the second sample set does not work

ENVIRONMENT

  • Empower 3
  • Blank Subtraction

CAUSE

Blank Subtraction does not work properly for acquired sample sets or process-only sample sets when a blank's label has been modified.
When using Blank Subtraction, Empower uses the blank's original label. Therefore, if you add, modify, or delete a label after an injection is acquired, Empower will not use it for blank subtraction.

This issue has been opened as defect PCS 54662 , CRI-1463

FIX or WORKAROUND

Ensure that the blank is labeled before acquisition.
