Manufacturer Narrative
A review of the device history record (dhr) was completed. The review reveled challenges during the manufacturing process while concluding that all acceptance criteria checks per established sampling levels were still within predefined limits prior to final release. A product analysis was unable to be completed as samples were unavailable for review. Without samples or pictures, the reported condition could not be observed. The method of root cause analysis that was implemented in this investigation was to conduct a six m assessment that evaluated causes. The most probable cause was identified as inherent vibration during manufacturing leading to printer entrance dial guide rail screws/bolts loosening over time which created syringe barrel jams/scratches and ultimately the potential for particulate. Based on the information available, no trend established and investigation findings, additional actions are deemed unnecessary at this time. A maintenance work order was completed to address the most probable root cause. Acceptance criteria per established levels are within acceptable limits. If additional information is received warranting further analysis, the investigation may be resumed? this complaint will be used for tracking and trending purposes. If information is provided in the future, a supplemental report will be issued.
 
Manufacturer Narrative
