Fujifilm to remove legacy 250/450 duodenoscope models from clinical use

01/17/2017

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) alerted users that Fujifilm plans to remove legacy 250/450 duodenoscope models from clinical use based on the limited number currently in use. Fuji will replace the 250/450 duodenoscope models with the ED-530XT model, in addition to necessary accessories (i.e. brushes), at no cost. FDA recommends that facilities and staff remove from circulation and return your facility’s 250/450 duodenoscope models to Fuji and train appropriate staff on Fuji’s validated reprocessing instructions for the ED-530XT model and implement them as soon as possible.
