  • Causa
    Thermal runaway conditions, in that the target temperature was exceeded and the temperature display could not track the actual temperature within the heated slide basins of the vp 2000 slide processor.
  • Acción
    Abbott sent Device Recall/Urgent Field Safety Notice letters dated 9/15/08 to the VP2000 customers on 9/12/08, informing them that thermal runaway conditions may occur within the heated slide basins of the VP2000 Slide Processor. The customers were given actions to take to prevent this condition: a) VP2000 should be powered down when not in use and when the controlling computer is not in use; b) Liquid level in all heated basins should be checked periodically to ensure that there is adequate reagent present for slide processing and to keep the sensor probe immersed for accurate temperature sensing; and c) If large, rapid and random fluctuations in indicated basin temperature occurs the unit should be shut down and a Field Service Representative be contacted. Any questions were directed to their local Abbott Technical Service Representative.
