  • Causa
    Based on internal testing and user/customer complaint reports received, the firm determined that wrinkles may arise on the outer membrane of the calcium membrane units upon installation. retention of fluids between the wrinkles can cause a positive bias resulting in calcium measuring errors. this situation poses a risk to the safety of patients, particularly when the measurement results are used.
