RECALLING FIRM/MANUFACTURER

Medica Corp., Bedford, MA, by letter dated March 29, 2010. Firm initiated recall is ongoing.

REASON

Chemistry analyzers may report Calcium results below the sample's actual concentration. Reported results may be ten to fifteen percent lower than expected sample results. The defect is a shortened path length at specific cuvette positions of those segments manufactured using molding cavity 1. The shortened path length was determined by measuring the cuvette dimensions with a Co-ordinate Measuring Machine (CMM) and comparing results to the cuvette dimension specification of 6 mm. The firm claims that segments manufactured using molding cavity 2 are not affected. The defect was first discovered after the firm received one customer complaint on February 2010 that reported negative bias of 10-15% in calcium every 20-30 patient samples. Internal testing completed by the firm using EasyQC quality control material resulted in low calcium recovery when using defective cuvette segments.
