Product Detail

Product Description Code Info Classification Reason for Recall Product Quantity Recall Number
Styker Orthobiologics Vita Plasma Separator, a component of Vitagel Surgical Hemostat. Sterile, single use device designed to prepare plasma from the patient's blood using a tabletop centrifuge. Part number 2113-0013, lot numbers T1203002, T1204005, and T1206001. Class II When preparing plasma using VitaPrep, it was reported that a small amount of blood collected in the bottom of the centrifuge cup following the centrifugation step. Firm has since discovered that if blood is present in the Luer connection of the VitaPrep following the blood draw step, this blood could be displaced to the outside of the syringe when the VitaPrep cap is reattached to the syringe. This small amount of blood (approximately 0.2 mL) would then migrate to the bottom of the centrifuge cup after the 2 minute centrifuge spin cycle. 3,268 Z-0431-2013
