  • Causa
    In march 2017, siemens healthcare issued an urgent recall for product correction vc 17-04 (tga ref: rc-2017-rn-01350-1) regarding incorrect units for biotin listed in the non-interfering substances section of select instructions for use in dimension and dimension vista assays. the ongoing investigation by siemens has identified the following new information regarding biotin interference:1. biotin interference limits are incorrectly listed in the instructions for use (ifu) for the affected assays. these concentrations of biotin can potentially result in interference >10%; and2. the dimension vista ctni, mmb, and dimension siro method ifus do not contain biotin interference information. concentrations of biotin can potentially result in interference >10%.Siemens is continuing to investigate biotin interference with our assays and more information will be forthcoming. the probability of misinterpretation of results due to this issue is unlikely.
  • Acción
    Siemens is advising users of the correct biotin interference levels for the affected assays. A lookback of previously generated results is not recommended.
