  • Causa
    A vitros system software timing anomaly has been identified that could cause two different sample metering scenarios that may lead to erroneous results.Scenario 1: the vitros system could aspirate sample from an unintended sample container causing assay result(s) obtained from that sample to be incorrectly associated with the intended sample.Scenario 2: a sample could be aspirated from a sample container (sample a) and be dispensed into an unintended container (sample b) to be contaminated and diluted by sample a.There is the potential for false negative and false positive results which may lead to an inappropriate diagnosis and patient management leading to serious patient injury.
