  • Causa
    Beckman coulter has confirmed that some ise units can experience premature ise ref (reference) valve failure. premature valve failure can be detected by the presence of air bubbles in the ise ref solution tubing on the ise unit. if air bubbles are present, accuracy of the ise test results may be affected. affected results may be clinically significant (high or low) and may impact patient diagnosis and/or treatment.
  • Acción
    Beckman Coulter is providing users with instructions on how to inspect tubing for the presence of air bubbles. Where air bubbles are present, users are to contact Beckman Coulter for a replacement valve. Beckman Coulter is recommending consulting the laboratory director to determine the impact of this issue and if a retrospective review of prior results is necessary. As a preventative measure, Beckman Coulter is proving work around instructions for users to follow until a replacement ISE valve is implemented.
