  • Causa
    Johnson & johnson medical is issuing a product correction for the evotech endoscope cleaner and reprocessor system after receiving reports of smoke emanating from the system and upon further investigation has discovered that a circuit board malfunction may occur in the channel control manifold sub-assembly. this failure can potentially cause the following outcomes for the cycles: 1. full reprocessing cycle (cleaning and hld) - if this issue were to occur while running a full automated cleaning and high level disinfection (hld) cycle, there is potential for residual rinse water and/or alcohol to remain in the endoscope channels after the cycle completes, 2. hld-only cycle - if this issue were to occur during reprocessing of endoscopes qualified for the hld only cycle, there is potential for an inadequate amount of high-level disinfectant solution to be sent through some endoscope channels.
