PRODUCT
BrightMatter Guide, Product Number SYN-0026, Versions: 1.5.0, 1.5.1 and 1.5.2 Product Usage: BrightMatter Guide can navigate a third-party port (NICO BrainPath device) by attaching Synaptive s custom Tracking Array to the port directly.

Note sheath and cannula are used interchangeably in this document.

Recall Number: Z-0470-2019

REASON
This recall has been initiated due to a software defect found in the Guide System software when used with NICO BrainPath ports under certain circumstances.
