December 2011

The deadline for the removal of Graseby MS-series syringe drivers has now passed.  These devices should now have been removed from clinical use and replaced with an alternative.

Graseby MS-series syringe drivers still in clinical use need to be replaced immediately.  Smiths Medical, suppliers of the Graseby devices, has now ceased the supply of spare parts and all services support for these devices in New Zealand.
