  • Causa
    The manufacturer, ibl has detected an issue that indicates a degradation in performance of the kit resulting in elevated cortisol values. when testing patient samples with one of the affected lots, the controls and calibrator values will meet specifications; however, due to a degradation in the starting concentration of the calibration standards, the calculated results for individual patient samples may be higher compared to lc-ms/ms measurements and may trigger unnecessary additional testing.A review of additional data comparing the respective kit standards of the lots to lc-ms/ms data it is evident that the lots eco142 to eco143 generate elevated results:- eco142 (passing bablok fit (y=0.009988 + 1.549x)- eco143 (passing bablok fit (y=0.003142 + 1.623x)there has not been any reports of injuries associated with this issue.
