Product Detail

Product Description Code Info Classification Reason for Recall Product Quantity Recall Number
AutoMate 1250 and AutoMate 2550, Part Numbers ODL25125 and ODL25255. The AutoMate 1200/2500 System Series is a semi-open, pre- and post-analytical sample processing and sorting system. The base system automates the sample sorting, decapping, and archiving processes. Handling and sorting of samples includes automatic detection of the tube type and cap type (color). Optional features include an Aliquot Module for creation of labeled secondary tubes (including the detection of the presence of adequate volume for the requested aliquots) and a Recapper Module to re-seal previously decapped tubes prior to archiving. All Serial Numbers Class II The recall was initiated because Beckman Coulter has confirmed customer reports of secondary tubes being labeled with two different barcode labels on the AutoMate 2500 Family (previously referred to as OLA2500 Systems) units which can cause misidentification of a sample when software versions lower than version 4.1 is used. 468 units total (51 units in US) Z-0056-2013
