  • Causa
    There have been reports of instrument malfunctions for phadia 250 due to deformed bottles in the above-mentioned products and lots. the deformation of the bottle can cause an erroneous volume detection by the instrument, which will result in insufficient aspiration of sample diluent, thus generating insufficient dilution of patient samples. the deformation is described as a flange or brim, located on the inside lower part of the vial opening. the instrument malfunction due to deformed bottles could cause erroneous test results, mainly a false positive, with regard to all elia assays. the frequency of this bottle defect is very low and not every defective bottle will cause the error. an instrument malfunction caused by deformed bottles will generate the instrument error message “3-145 right arm liquid detection below lower limit with target 2”.
