  • Causa
    Siemens healthcare diagnostics has identified that the advia chemistry theophylline_2 (theo_2) reagent lot 334018 used on the advia 1200, 1800, 2400, and xpt chemistry systems may exhibit increased imprecision for commercially available tdm quality controls and patient specimens.Siemens internal investigation after one internal complaint was received confirmed that reagent lot 334018 is not in statistical alignment with the representative precision data published in the ifu and the design input requirements on the advia chemistry systems.Discordance with the clinical presentation is expected to lead to repeat testing or more frequent monitoring. there may be a delay in theophylline testing due to troubleshooting after failed qc.
  • Acción
