Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
The action is being initiated because the cooling indicator board was improperly installed. This was first noticed by a service employee during assembly. If for some reason the cooling of the reagent rotor fails, the reagent cooling indicator light will not illuminate and the acoustic beeper will not go off. As a consequence the operator will not be warned and the reagent storage conditions may fall out of specification.

The problem will not cause injuries or delays in treatment. In the event there is  for some reason  a disturbance of the cooling of the reagent rotor and this problem continued to remain undetected, the risk of an incorrect examination result and consequently an incorrect medical treatment and consequently harm to the patient is considered to be very low. Despite a possible failure of the reagent cooling unit, given the claimed on-board stability of the Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics Inc.
