A pressure switch may need to be replaced on the FACSAria II-s if you have an unloading problem. BD part number 644 865 might need to be replaced.

> We have the same fault with our Aria II, most commonly the sample tube loading/unloading error resulting in the system shutting itself down (turning off stream and depressurising) very annoying when you've sat for 30/45 mins for a 130um stream to stabilise! Its happened since the machine was installed 18 months ago. Engineer tried to cure but to no avail...thought we were the only ones with the problem!!
