  • Causa
    Beckman coulter has identified a potential issue with the tip present sensor within the robot of the aliquoter module. there has been one overseas report of a misaligned sensor in an automate system, which resulted in the system processing samples without pipette tips. a small number of samples were subject to cross-contamination and were sent to the error rack prior to analysis. in this particular case, the system gave no external sign of a misaligned tip present sensor. there is no impact to the sorter module associated with this issue.
  • Acción
    Beckman Coulter will arrange field service engineers to inspect affected devices to inspect the tip present sensor for misalignment. If users suspect or observe unusual contamination of the tip carrier arm whilst performing daily maintenance, as described in the IFU please contact the local Beckman Coulter representative immediately. If this is to occur, it is recommended to discontinue use of the Aliquotter module.
