  • Causa
    Investigations by roche have confirmed an increase in native patient sample result recovery of approximately 15 – 20% when using certain lot combinations of online tdm gentamicin with preciset tdm i calibrator. a combination with tdm control set lot 125783 does not show this effect. this may result in sub therapeutic serum levels of gentamicin leading to a delay in treatment and potentially leading to the spread of infections.
  • Acción
    Roche is advising users to immediately stop using ONLINE TDM Gentamicin reagent until further notice. Stock does not need to be discarded at this time.
