  • B Braun Melsungen AG has issued a Field Safety Notice to proactively recall four batches  of Infusomat® Space Line (Transfusion).
  • Post market surveillance activities identified that the gluing connection between the tube and the patient connector might be inadequate. Due to temporary deviations in the production, the glue was supplied insufficiently, resulting in leakage of the device between the patient connector and the tube.
  • This might harbour the theoretical risk for microbial contamination, under supply, open patient access or air infusion.
