Notice of Field Correction: Automated Blood Cell Separator, Haemonetics LN9000 Mobile Collection System-Haemontics Corp



October 18-26, 2004


Automated Blood Cell Separator, Haemonetics LN9000 Mobile Collection System
MCS+ 9000
Model Number: LN09000-110-E



Haemonetics Corporation
Braintree, Massachusetts



Haemonetics is aware of the possibility when using an MCS machine that a small leak at the base of the Latham bowl may cause the collection of blood from a donor to exceed the recommended extracorporeal volume limit. A bowl base leak causes blood to leak out of the base of the bowl and into the waste bag. Haemonetics began equipping the MCS with a base leak detector starting with serial number 01M185. A Haemonetics service representative will contact consignees.


In the meantime, Haemonetics recommends that operators periodically observe the waste bag during a collection procedure. If there are indications of blood products in the waste bag, the procedure should be terminated.
