Recall – Sentec

By December 12, 2023Recalls

About the Recall:

The Membrane Changers (REF: MC, MC-R and MC-I) are used to change the membranes on your V-Sign™ 2 or OxiVenT™ sensors. This is part of routine maintenance as outlined in the Instruction Manuals (HB-005771-r, HB-011077-_, HB-005147-m, HB-006417-d). What is the defect? During the manufacturing process there were components that required rework and during this step, but before assembly, an additional piece of material may have been left in the device itself. This material is less than 0.5 mm in diameter and is inert and non-toxic. The source of this material has been identified, and Sentec AG can with certainty list the affected production lots. How does this manifest itself? As a result of the non-conformity, some membranes that are changed (using affected products) may have this non-conforming material under the new membrane on the sensor surface. This is easily observable and corrected by following the instructions for use in Appendix I.
