Frequently Asked Questions – FAQ

  |   Why do I need to set the date on the VHC-Reader

The VHC-Reader checks its internal clock against the expiration date of the VHC Vitamin-D test lot in order to make sure that the test kit is not expired. If there is a missmatch between the internal data and the test’s expiry date, the display will show “DATE”.  NOTE: When turning on the VHC-Reader for the first time or after changing the batteries, date and time may need to be set as otherwise the “DATE” error might show up. Please refer to the VHC-Reader Quick-Guide or the Manual for instructions on how to set the internal clock.
