  • Causa
    When the incubation bath is cleaned or cuvettes replaced on the cobas c 501/502 modules during routine monthly maintenance, the usm cover 3 is removed. whilst loosening one of the thumb screws on this cover, an instrument operator cut their thumb on the 90-degree edge of the thumb screw bracket.Given the cobas c 501 modules and cobas c 502 modules share the same hardware, roche diagnostics has, as a precaution, decided to inform and request operators of both systems to perform the related maintenance task with special caution, to prevent any further occurrence.Although the design of the usm cover 3 is according to the manufacturer’s specification, and the 90-degree edge is clearly visible, a medical risk due to an injury cannot be entirely excluded. roche has received only one complaint since this product was launched in 2006. a warning statement will be added to the respective operator manuals specifying the need to perform the related maintenance task with special caution.
  • Acción
    Roche Diagnostics will add a warning statement to the respective operator manuals, which will be available by December 2017.
