  • Causa
    Ortho clinical diagnostics (ocd) is advising users of a software anomaly regarding the routing of urine samples which required pre-treatment for assays using vitros chemistry products ca, mg and phos slides. the engen system software currently does not route samples which require acidification pre-treatment to the manual high priority exit location for pre-treatments as intended. in addition, the engen system software currently allows the ordering of invalid assay combinations that include urine samples with differing requirements with regard to pre-treatment. ocd internal testing has confirmed instances where vitros 5,1 fs, 4600 or 5600 systems allowed testing of multiple assays using a single urine specimen, regardless of the pre-treatment requirements for each selected assay, potentially leading to biased patient results.
