Reason/Issue Update: Beckman Coulter's investigation has shown that the LH Cleaner and Coulter Clenz was the main contributor to the optical degradation issue.

Complaints related to optical degradation have increased on the LH 750 and LH 780 Haematology Systems. Customers have reported an increase in LS offset error messages during Startup, Background, control and/or patient analysis.

The optical degradation may potentially cause a delay in reporting results for nucleated red blood cells, white blood cell differential and/or reticulocytes.
CBC panel results are available for reporting and are not affected by this issue.
Recall Action Recall for Product Correction
