  • Causa
    The immulite/ immulite 1000/ immulite 2000 and immulite 2000 xpi free t3 assay kit lots listed with adjustor (lf3l/h) lot #135 are showing an elevated shift in patient values that exceed the upper limits of the normal reference range referenced in the immulite free t3 instructions for use (ifu). the elevated immulite free t3 results will not correlate with the results of other thyroid markers or free t3 results generated on other platforms.
  • Acción
    Siemens is requesting their customers to cease using the affected lots of reagent. Replacement with unaffected lots can be arranged to replace any stock. A look back of previously reported results is not recommended by Siemens as the assessment of thyroid function is generally based on multiple markers. However, the requirement for a look back should be determined at the discretion of the laboratory. Thia action has been closed-out on 29/01/2016.
