  • Causa
    Hologic has identified the following compliance issues:1. the audible alarm to alert the operator when cumulative irradiation time reaches five minutes is not accurate. 2. the total cumulative irradiation time display is not accurate. both issues are caused by computational error which truncates the fractions of seconds after each image and therefore the time to alarm and the time displayed are shorter by the sum of these fractions.
  • Acción
    Hologic is providing their customers with a revised version of the software. End users are requested to update their systems in accordance with the instructions provided with the update.
