Why do I need to consider a Windows 10 Upgrade service for my instrument controller PC?

Many Beckman Coulter Life Sciences instruments were sold with a validated controller PC that operates on Windows 7. Microsoft ended its 10-year support commitment for Windows 7 on January 14, 2020, which means its technical assistance including updates that help protect against security risks and viruses will no longer be available. Upgrading your instrument’s controller PC to Windows 10 will help minimize these risks and sustain optimal performance of your instrument. Controller PCs that are not networked or connected to an internet can also have security risks if not upgraded to Windows 10.
