  • Causa
    Beckman coulter has identified there is a potential that a component on the recapper module did not have the required coating specified for that part.The coating on the recapper component helps to ensure both the longevity of the part, and help the gripper to release the parafilm so it properly seals to the tube. if there is an uncoated component on your recapper, this could lead to the tubes not being properly sealed. in the worst case scenario, this could cause sample cross contamination and subsequent misdiagnosis.
  • Acción
    Beckman Coulter will schedule a time to visit affected users to confirm whether the proper coating on the recapper component is present, and replace the component. In the interim, users are advised that no action is required on their part.
