  • Causa
    Roche has identified that in very rare cases, a disturbance of the sample liquid level detection (lld) may occur due to a fretting corrosion on the sample probe connector. in such instances, the affected sample probe may not aspirate the sample material at the correct level; accordingly the probe may not be washed adequately, resulting in the possibility of sample carryover.This issue, which was detected during an internal investigation, was caused by a production change in the sample probe connector type, potentially causing fretting corrosion on the sample probe connector. to date, roche have not received any complaints about this issue.
  • Acción
    Roche is requesting that customers check the sample probe in use in their analyser to determine if the sample probe is from the potentially affected serial/lot numbers. If so, customers are advised to contact Roche to discuss an exchange. Until the sample probe is exchanged, users are requested to follow the detailed instructions provided in the customer letter.
