  • Causa
    The manufacturer gentian has identified an issue with two specific lots of gentian cystatin c calibrator kit (lot 0006 and 0008). the identified lots of calibrators resulted in a high bias when used on a dxc instrument. potential risks associated with the increased bias are an underestimation of the cystatin c value, which again gives an overestimation of gfr. the bias should be detected when using controls for validation of the calibration curve. as a worst case in the event this is not detected by the controls, the bias may be close to 20%.
