  • Causa
    Roche has identified a certain test strip lot that potentially shows an increase in strip errors prior to dosing. due to the designed fail-safe in the blood glucose meter, the issue can be identified by the error message displayed on the meter upon strip insertion or through the device not recognising the test strip, respectively. however, in a limited number of cases the test strip can produce a biased result i.E. a false high or low value, which might not be detected easily and which could lead to erroneous therapy adaptations.
  • Acción
    Roche is advising customers to identify affected lot numbers from inventory. If impacted stock is identified users should discontinue using strips immediately and discard. Users should use an alternate unaffected lot to monitor patients' glucose levels.
