  • Causa
    On 30 may 2016, customers using the online tdm gentamicin (gent2) assays were advised to stop using certain lots of the assay due to reports of increased recovery in patient results. (customers would also have received the customer bulletin reference number: cc16-029, notifying that the online tdm gentamicin assay was once again available for use following the implementation of a mandatory instrument factor (a = 0.8) and re-assignment of the tdm control set values.)several reports have since been received that after the instrument factor (if) was implemented, decreased recovery of patient results were observed. further internal investigations suggested that the if of 0.8 is incorrect, leading to decreased recovery of gentamicin results. this may lead to over dosage, which would cause potential toxic concentrations in patients.
