  • Causa
    Biomérieux have found that the current shelf-life claims of multiple etest products are not supported by internal testing. there is potential to obtain a mic result that is higher than expected after 24 months for fm1024 (b) ww, after 48 months for gm256 (f) ww and tm256 (f) ww, and after 12 months for the remainder of the affected products. this type of error would be detectable during qc testing as an out of range mic result would be obtained. patient results may also be elevated resulting in a false resistant result. accordingly, the shelf-life claims have been revised to 24, 48 and 12 months, as appropriate. when used within the revised shelf-life, the products will continue to perform per the labelled performance specifications.For etest ceftriaxone products there is also a potential performance issue on strain categorisation for streptococcus pneumoniae strains when using the 2016 clsi or 2016 eucast guidelines. there is potential to obtain a false susceptible result.
