Priming of the solution lines means filling them with the solution. Priming is needed if the solution lines have air in them or if the solution is changed.

Emptying the solution lines means removing all fluids from them. Emptying the solution lines is needed when moving or storing the instrument somewhere.


  1. On the home screen, tap the Settings icon (gear), tap Service Tools, and then tap Prime/Empty Lines.
  2. Do one of the following:

  • Tap Prime.
  • The instrument interface displays the status information while it performs the procedure.
  • Tap Cancel to abort the run.
