Company: Beckman Coulter Inc.
Date of Enforcement Report: 4/10/2019
Class II:

PRODUCT

The UniCel DxI 600 and 800 Access Immunoassay Systems, that are connected to an automation line. UniCel DxI 600 Catalog Numbers: A30260, A71460, A71461, A92060. Unicel DxI 800 Catalog Numbers: 973100, A71456, A71457, A84545, A25288, A25285.

Recall Number: Z-1077-2019

REASON

When racks are front-loaded onto the sample presentation unit while samples from the automation line are being processed, a scheduling error within the software can cause mishandling of samples during the creation of an aliquot and lead to incorrect results being generated. Affected samples typically yield non-reproducible falsely decreased results by up to 100%, however the potential for falsely elevated results cannot be ruled out.
