That is the reason one maintain service contracts But if the service calls are resulting in significant down times then that may not be good for your facility.

Your FAS has a way of plotting instrument up-times/issues found based on the backend service database at Illumina. If you have not had a meeting with him/her you should schedule one to discuss the performance of your instruments. Any trends that emerge (e.g. particular machine) can be used for targeted remediation. Money spent of consumables is always a good incentive for getting these issues fixed.
