Action Customer notifications will be sent the week of November 24, 2008. The notification letter (URGENT: Product Correction) will advise of two situations that could cause the STERRAD 100S Sterilizer to malfunction. The first situation involves the failure of the STERRAD 100S System to detect when an injection takes place without hydrogen peroxide having been transferred to the vaporizer bowl. This can occur under combinations of the following conditions: - the pneumatic pressure is low on the machine, or - the injector valve has a small leak, AND - a cassette fails to advance, or - a used cassette is re-inserted into the sterilizer. This situation can result in a cycle completion with insufficient hydrogen peroxide. The second situation involves the failure of the STERRAD 100S System to detect an obstruction in the door travel path while the door is closing. Under some conditions, the door sensors may become mechanically unsecured/disconnected and will not detect an obstruction. This situation can result in an operator's hand becoming pinched and bruised while the door is closing. To correct both situations above, Advanced Sterilization Products(ASP) has revised the software and is making physical hardware additions to the STERRAD 100S System. Contact ASP Customer Care Center at 888-783-7723, option 2 for questions or assistance.
