Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
The ABX PENTRA Reagent Containers do not always sit properly into the reagent rack. In low reagent level scenarios, this could lead to insufficient reagent volume being pipetted and could lead to incorrect results being reported without an alarm.
FDA Determined
Cause 2
