  • Extra notes in the data
  • Reason
    Imaxeon have determined that all current source administration sets (sas) used with the medrad intego pet infusion system may produce particulates in radiopharmaceutical (rp) vials when the needle is inserted. these particulates may be generated when the tip of the needle pushes through the rubber septum of the vial. this presents a potential safety risk of particulate(s) being injected into a patient. to date, there have been no reports of patient or user injury.
  • Action
    Imaxeon is advising customers to immediately discontinue use of the Intego system and quarantine the SAS disposable units that they have in stock. They are also advised to determine an alternative method of the radiopharmaceutical delivery such as manual injections, if feasible. Imaxeon is in the process of qualifying a compatible in-line filter to be used with the SAS and will advise customers of the results in the next few weeks. Due to the limited inventory, customers may retain their quarantined units to be later used with the in-line filters. Alternatively, customers may return their units back to Imaxeon for a credit.
