  • Acción
    The recalling firm contacted their customers and notified them of this recall with a letter on 3/26/2009. The letter informs the customer that Radiometer has determined that the Reference Membrane D711 for use in the ABL8x7 Flex Creatinine Analyzer has a shorter in-use lifetime than the previously recommended 1-month interval listed in the Operators Manual. It states that consequently, the firm has changed the recommended replacement intervals as they correspond to the number of samples per day analyzed by the customer and a revised insert is being supplied to the customer which should be placed in the Operators Manual to reflect this new information. The recall notification is also accompanied by an attached response FAX FORM which the customer is asked to complete and to fax back to Radiometer so as to acknowledge receipt of the recall notification letter and the revised insert.
