  • Causa
    Biomérieux have received customer reports indicating occurrences of atypical negative o129r reactions for enterococcus casseliflavus atcc 700327 in association with specific vitek 2 gp id lots, causing failure of the quality control (qc) testing for the vitek 2 gp id card. the expected o129r reaction for atcc 700327 strain is positive.An internal investigation determined that a positive dsor reaction that occurs early in the incubation of the card is causing an earlier end to the analysis of the card leading to an atypical negative reaction for o129r.
