Dummy standard is "not in calibration".

Good afternoon,

We have a dummy standard that we created for doing vendor logouts (Our group requires that the Standards field has something in it in order to save a calibration record.)

Unfortunately, our dummy standard has stopped working. When we enter it as a standard, it enters the list grayed out and unselectable with an comment that it is not in calibration, despite the standard having a due date in 2018.

I have compared it with a sister lab's dummy standard...one that still works...and don't see any difference that should be causing ours to not function.

Has anyone experienced this before?

Nick, Since that standard is


Since that standard is not a calibrated standard - try setting the interval and interval units to 0 (zero) and "N" to set it up as a no-cal required standard.

See if that fixes your issue.
