  • Causa
    The recall was initiated because beckman coulter has confirmed an issue with the coulter preplus 2. the reagent level sensing is impaired and will give no warning when a reagent vial is low or out of reagent. due to the size difference in the vertical mounts, the reagent rack is not aligned optimally for the probe to aspirate or level sense the antibody. this misalignment yields impaired reagen.
