Product Detail

Product Description VITROS 5600 Integrated System, Product Code 6802413. Intended for use in the measurement of a variety of chemistry analytes.
Recall Number Z-1108-2013
Classification Class II
Code Info Serial Numbers 56000118 through 56001583
Product Distributed Qty USA: 775 units, Foreign: 800 units
Reason For Recall Ortho-Clinical Diagnostics, Inc. (OCD) determined that extension springs on some VITROSĀ® Systems may be out of its manufacturing specifications. Extension springs are part of the slide alignment guide assembly. During an internal evaluation in its manufacturing facility, it was discovered that an extension spring had insufficient force. If the extension spring does not provide sufficient force, MicroSlides may not be properly positioned within the MicroSlide incubator which has the potential to cause imprecise results. Extension springs are just one component in the slide alignment assembly. OCD's evaluation determined that the probability of an out of specification extension spring alone adversely affecting results is unlikely.
