  • Causa
    It has been confirmed that in specific conditions, the anti-n (mns2) of certain lots of cards id-diaclon anti-n (ref. 007111) and id-diaclon anti-m/n (ref. 006011) may give an unexpected interference with n negative samples.Investigations have identified that this phenomenon is temperature dependent, becoming stronger if the ambient temperature drops to the lower range of room temperature, 18-25°c and tending to disappear once the temperature reaches the upper limit of this range. reagents and samples that are at the lower end of the room temperature range will also increase the interference.The reported issue may result in false positive results which can lead to a delay in transfusion decisions.
