  • Acción
    BD Diagnostic Systems telephoned all customers on June 1, 2017 and sent an Urgent Product Recall letter dated May 31, 2017, and Response Forms to their customers via email. BD recently confirmed a manufacturing issue with the motor that drives movement of the robot arm. The issue may result in the inability of this motor to withstand the lateral forces encountered during normal operations. Should this occur, the instrument will indicate an E20 error-Pipettor step loss during operation and stop functioning. While there is no loss of patient sample, the samples would need to be manually processed until the instrument can be repaired. To limit any disruption in the workload, BD Service will contact customers to schedule the instrument replacement. Customers are advised to complete and return the response form via email to Customers may continue to use the instrument until replacement is performed. Customers with questions may contact BD (Customer/Technical) Support at 1-800-638-8663. For questions regarding this recall call 410-316-4258.
