  • Causa
    Roche diagnostics australia is informing users that in extremely rare cases, sample under-aspiration may occur when using the cobas 6800 system with sample input volumes of less than 450 µl. this issue will only affect the cobas mpx test when used with cadaveric donors, since the minimum sample volume required for cadaveric donors is 300 µl (for living donors, the minimum sample volume required is 1,000 µl).If bubbles or foam are present in the sample tube, this may lead to false sample liquid level detection and under-aspiration of the sample. this could potentially cause false negative / under-quantitated results that are not flagged.
  • Acción
    Roche is advising users to ensure good sample preparation technique to avoid the formation of foam, clots, or bubbles in all samples, as described within the instrument safety manual. A look-back at previous cadaveric results is also recommended. Roche will be implementing a software correction as a permanent fix..
