ThermoGenesis has determined that there is a potentially serious issue associated with the use of these lots. They have become aware that particulates from the stopcock in the bagset may be released into the sterile, non-pyrogenic fluid path. While all materials used in the bagsets are biocompatible, the introduction of any particulate into the body could result in serious injury to a patient being transfused with cord blood that has been stored in these units.
