  • Causa
    Siemens has confirmed that a portion of folate readypacks in kit lots ending in 218 are exhibiting calibration failures and/or significant negative shifts in quality control (qc) and patient results. if the calibration and qc on a readypack are valid, results generated with this readypack are not affected. however, due to the sporadic nature of the issue, successful calibration and qc on one readypack may not reflect acceptable performance of other readypacks in the lot.
  • Acción
    If a customer has an alternative method or lot of ADVIA Centaur Folate, Siemens Healthcare is advising users to transition all folate testing to the alternative lot or method. Siemens Healthcare is providing users with work around instructions to follow with the affected product. The Laboratory Medical Director should determine if repeat testing of patient samples that demonstrated results below the reference interval is appropriate.
