1. A measurement system comprising:

  • a network;

    a measurement apparatus provided with a first set of lot data files containing calibration data and lot identification codes each associated with respective ones of the calibration data, said measurement apparatus uses a consumable reagent in a measurement process, said consumable reagent having an associated lot data file containing calibration data and associated lot identification codes each associated with respective ones of the calibration data, wherein said measurement apparatus transmits over said network said associated lot data file of said consumable reagent when said associated lot identification codes fail to match any of said lot identification codes of the first set of lot data files provided on the measurement apparatus; and

    a host apparatus provided with a second set of lot data files containing calibration data and lot identification codes each associated with respective ones of the calibration data, said host apparatus receives said associated lot data file containing the associated lot identification codes each associated with respective calibration data of said consumable reagent transmitted from said measurement apparatus over said network, to subsequently identify whether the associated lot identification codes in the received lot data file match any of the lot identification codes of the second set of lot data files, and to distribute said lot data file of said consumable reagent containing the calibration data and the lot identification codes each associated with respective ones of the calibration data via the network when one of said associated lot identification codes matches one of the lot identification codes of the second set of lot data files.
