  • Causa
    Siemens healthcare diagnostics has determined that some lots of ammonia (amm) reagent used on both the dimension® and dimension vista® systems do not meet the 60-day calibration interval claim due to reagent instability and results may show an abnormal assay message. these lots may exhibit accuracy shifts for patient and/or quality control results; which may cause laboratories to recalibrate more frequently than the of 60-day claim in the instructions for use (ifu).
  • Acción
    Siemens is advising customers to discard affected lots and to use alternate lots instead. Customers are also to check the acceptability of the calibration and QC.
