  • Causa
    Seqirus received a report from a customer that lot 009934602 presented false positive results during pre-acceptance testing (cells known to be n negative phenotype presented positive results during tube testing). this was subsequently confirmed to have occurred for multiple customers.Additional customer feedback was also received for a separate epiclone anti n lot (009934501) where the customer reported the product to be “uncharacteristically sticky”, causing red cells to adhere to the inner surfaces of the tube (tube testing technique), resulting in difficulty to confirm whether the reaction produced a positive or negative result.Following these customer reports, investigational testing on all epiclone lots within expiry was performed, which confirmed that epiclone anti n lots 009934401, 009934501, 009934602 and 009934701 are capable of presenting false positive results against certain n negative samples.
