Responsible Entity Roche Diagnostics Australia Pty Limited
Reason/Issue Roche have been notified by the manufacturer, Sysmex Corporation, of a potential failure of power up due to a short circuit of the PCB of CV-50 power supply unit in the event a leakage occurs from the instrument or operator error. Sysmex have identified that in rare cases, some fluid (approx 50mL) may leak from the XN-10 / XN-20 automated haematology analysers into the conveyor unit itself, resulting in short circuit of the power supply and subsequent malfunction of the conveyor.
If this issue occurs, the system will stop and patient samples will require processing by manual measurement.

Sysmex has received one complaint worldwide for this issue; none from Australian customers to date.
Recall Action Product Defect Correction
Recall Action Instructions Roche is advising they will be in contact with customers to arrange for a technician to ensure the gaps on the outer covers of the CV-50 will be sealed with waterproof materials. This will prevent fluid from entering the power supply board.
