  • Causa
    An issue related to out-of-range-low (oorl) flucytosine (fct) qc results for candida krusei atcc 6258, the package insert qc strain, has been identified in association with the vitek 2 ast-ys06 and ast-ys07 test kits.Internal investigation at the manufacturing site has observed the oorl fct qc results for candida krusei atcc 6258. internal testing of fct with additional isolates shows a trend to call one to two doubling dilutions low. candida krusei are intrinsically resistant to fct and are therefore forced "resistant" in vitek 2 software (as of version 7.01); the vitek® 2 7.01 fct forcing rule does not apply to other candida species. user reports have been limited to the atcc 6258 qc strain; however, impact to patient results for candida krusei and other yeast cannot be ruled out.
  • Acción
    For the referenced test kits (VITEK 2 AST-YS06 or AST-YS07), laboratories are advised to not report Flucytosine (FCT) results for any organism until the new formulation (fct02n) is released. This issue will be resolved with the release of a new Flucytosine (fct02n) formulation. The estimated timeframe for introduction of cards with the new Flucytosine formulation is six months. This action has been closed out on 09/08/2016.
