Recall Action Classification Class III
Recall Action Commencement Date 8/12/2017
Responsible Entity Bio-Rad Laboratories Pty Ltd
Reason/Issue This failure appears as low total volume in the well of the AutoDG droplet plate after automated droplet generation, and results in low droplet counts when analyzing data in QuantaSoft. The failure is most frequently observed in columns 2 and 8 of the droplet plate, which corresponds to the fourth column of pipet tips in each box (when loaded with the box label facing front).

This issue may impact pipet tip lots shipped in 2017 and is most frequently observed with pipet tips from column 4 of the pipet tip box.

This defect has no safety or efficacy impact, and will not result in erroneous results.
