  • Causa
    Werfen australia's investigation of recent customer complaints determined that an acl top family instrument can experience carry-over that causes shortened aptt clotting times on patient and/or quality control results. carry-over can occur when a hemosil synthaasil aptt reagent (pn 0020006800) is located in the same reagent rack as certain other hemosil reagents. the carry-over is introduced during the liquid height check that is performed upon rack insertion and is dependent on material position, the order of rack insertion, and the sequence in which the assays are performed.
