Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
When the UniCel DxH Slidemaker Stainer and UniCel DxH Slidemaker Stainer II dispense probe is slightly bent, there is a potential for cell carryover from the previous sample, and erroneous results could be reported from the slide review. Erroneous results may be reported from the laboratory which may trigger unnecessary or inappropriate patient treatment.
