  • Causa
    Siemens healthcare diagnostics has determined that incorrect calibrator lot values were assigned for advia chemistry systems drug calibrator i, lot 3jd018, for the advia chemistry systems phenytoin 2 (phny_2) and phenobarbital 2 (phnb_2) assays. this issue was determined to be the result of calibrator value miscalculation. calibrator lot 3jd018 has now been value assigned to align with the correct calibrator values.This poses a risk of an incorrect value of -10% being assigned for phenytoin testing and 3% for phenobarbital.Siemens considers these differences are negligible and would not be considered substantially relevant to impact clinical care in practice.
