  • Causa
    Bd has determined that some db bactec fx instruments contain racks that may demonstrate variable indicator light intensities. specifically, the anonymous vial indicator lights, which should appear yellow, may instead appear green in colour. this has the potential to lead a user of the instrument to accidentally discard an anonymous vial or the readings associated with an anonymous vial, before an anonymous vial has completed protocol. the affected instruments continue to function properly and will not report an incorrect result.
  • Acción
    BD is providing a software update to correct the issue, which will be available in February 2014. As an interim measure, BD is providing users with work around instructions to follow until the software upgrade is completed.
