  • Causa
    Roche diagnostics australia has been informed by sysmex asia pacific that potentially inaccurate wbc results could occur on the xn-l series analysers.It was reported that the wbc results could be false low when the following steps are performed:- the manual mode is selected- whole blood mode (diluent or body fluid mode) is changed to low wbc mode- measurement information is set with manual dialog and then closed by ok- no measurement obtained with low wbc mode and then the mode is changed to another measurement mode- the next measurement wbc result becomes half of the correct wbc valuethis issue may lead to incorrect diagnosis or treatment but this risk is mitigated when the clinical decision is made by considering the previous results, patient conditions and other test results. one complaint worldwide has been received (from japan) relating to this issue. no such complaints to date have been received in australia.
