Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
Incorrect programming causes QuickPrint to fail to recognize the communication Cradles. As a result, ScanPoint Communications Cradles could not communicate with ScanPoint Online Tool while using the QuickPrint interface. This will affect the transfer of exams and device calibration through QuickPrint interface.
FDA Determined
Cause 2
Software design (manufacturing process)
