  • Acción
    The firm began notifying consignees via phone on 05/23/16. The firm also sent out Urgent Notification letters, dated June 15, 2016. The firm's phone script instructs customers to decrease the number of rinses on the slide and increasing the number of rinses in the chamber for better outcomes and performance with the instrument. Reducing the rinses on the slide may prevent bacteria from coming off the slide, and adding rinses to the empty chamber will help ensure that the chamber is clean before the next slide is introduced. The firm's customer notification letter recommended an immediate update to the automated rinse cycle to decrease the number of slide rinses and increase the number of empty chamber rinses to improve instrument performance. A step-by-step procedure for updating the rinse cycle settings was discussed via phone and should now be implemented. In addition to the changes, the firm is updating the GramPro 80 User Manual to reflect new recommendations, and it is strongly recommended that all users perform methanol fixation of slides for automated staining and discontinue the use of heat fixation to prevent cross contamination of the unit. Once updates to the User Manual have been completed, the firm will provide an updated revision for customer records.
