  • Causa
    Roche have determined that the performance of the elecsys anti-hav assay is affected by certain types of plasma specimens. when li-heparin and na-heparin plasma specimens were compared to serum samples during internal investigations, the specified required recovery could not be achieved. values were found to be on average up to 35 % below those obtained in serum. this under-recovery may occur across the entire measuring range. a false negative result may occur only where heparin plasma samples are within close proximity to the medical decision point of the assay at 20 iu/l. in all other cases, interpretation of the results would be unchanged. based on these findings, li- and na-heparin plasma specimens will no longer be claimed to be acceptable specimen types in the ifu. in addition, for k3-edta & citrate plasma specimens, the specified criterion in the ifu that the recovery compared to serum specimens has to be within 90-110 % has been broadened to 80-120 %.

    The Elecsys Anti-HAV IFU will be updated to remove Li-heparin or Na-heparin plasma as acceptable specimen types and to include the following limitation: For plasma treated with lithium heparin or sodium heparin, the values found were up to 35 % lower than those obtained in serum. In addition, for the acceptable specimen types K3-EDTA and sodium citrate plasma, the criterion for mean recovery will be updated to 80-120 % of serum value. Users are advised to take note of the updated limitations and not use Li-heparin or Na-heparin plasma specimens with the assay. Laboratories should also consider retesting in accordance with relevant clinical information, if they suspect discrepant results with Li- and Na-heparin plasma specimens or have specific questions.
