CODE
All analyzers; all serial numbers
RECALLING FIRM/MANUFACTURER
DPC Cirrus, Flanders, NJ, by letter on April 22, 2005. Firm initiated recall is ongoing.
REASON
In the Tube Transport Chain Sensor, used to move a Reaction Tube within the Immulite 2000, a false trigger can occur due to particulate contamination or dust. Although extremely remote, this behavior can cause the instrument to process a test using an incorrect bead. The failure occurs when debris in the sensor triggers the signal, indicating the flag was detected before the chain reaches position. In this case, the Processor Shuttle pushes a blank space, and the instrument generates an error "473 - Reaction Cup is not in the pipetting position." The reaction cup containing the bead remains on the chain and moves to the pipette position for the launch of the next test. Meanwhile, the reaction cup intended for the current test remains in the indexer, where a second bead is dispensed. This generates an error "408 - Two beads detected rerunning test". The test is question is launched between the two errors. After these two cycles the instrument returns to normal operation.
