Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
RADIOMETER became aware that the regarded lot pO2 units 942-042R0971 were produced with inner solution for pCO2 membrane units. This solution is a salt solution similar to the pO2 inner solution, but also contains glycerol which can be reduced at the cathode causing a suddenly rising zero current, causing the membrane unit to fail the following Cal2 calibration.
