  • Causa
    Lumenis have learned that the cleaning instructions provided in femtouch operator’s manual (um-10065340 rev. b) might be ineffective for a fully assembled device and may lead to a potential for cross-contamination. lumenis initiated a re-verification of the cleaning protocol, and the results showed the current protocol as stated in the instructions for use (ifu) were not effective for an assembled handpiece (tip). this issue affects all femtouch hand pieces and kits. lumenis has not received any reports of injury or harm associated with this potential risk.
  • Acción
    Lumenis is asking customers to disassemble the FemTouch tip prior to its cleaning process. This will remove cleaning challenges and allow the device to be effectively cleaned and sterilised using the protocol in the labelling, thereby reducing the potential for cross-contamination.
