There are 4 reasons why you cannot complete the syringe calibration:

  1. The analyzer has not completed the start-up zero calibration procedure.
  2. The humidity sensor is reading values above 70%. If the oxygen sensor was damaged by water the sensor may read values even higher than ambient humidity, we recommend that the desiccant cartridge be replaced, and the analyzer be placed in a zip lock bag with silica gel packs for 48hrs, please contact support if the issue continues after the 48hr period.
  3. The volume provided to the analyzer is reading more than 15% off the expected value, due to a leak in the syringe hose and the analyzer will reject the breaths it receives.
  4. You may be pumping the syringe too fast, try to follow the audio and visual calibration metronome in the mobile app.

Try replacing the battery with a known fully charged battery. If the issue persists, use our Contact page, and complete the form with ‘Technical Support’ selected under the ‘Type of request’ drop down menu.

In some cases, the analyzer may not always capture the necessary data required to support automatic ventilatory threshold identification. While every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of the analyzer’s results, there may be situations where the data available to the analyzer is insufficient to identify the ventilatory thresholds correctly. Visit our ventilatory thresholds support page to view the best practices and how to manually add them to your reports.
