Retiro De Equipo (Recall) de VITROS 4600 Chemistry System and VITROS 5,1 FS Chemistry System. An in vitro diagnostic medical device (IVD)

Según Department of Health, Therapeutic Goods Administration, este evento ( retiro de equipo (recall) ) involucró a un dispositivo médico en Australia que fue producido por Ortho-Clinical Diagnostics.

¿Qué es esto?

Una corrección al equipo o acción de retiro tomada por el fabricante para abordar un problema con un dispositivo médico. Los retiros (recalls) ocurren cuando un dispositivo médico está defectuoso, cuando puede poner en riesgo la salud, o cuando simultáneamente está defectuoso y puede poner en riesgo la salud.

  • Notas / Alertas
    Australian data is current through July 2018. All of the data comes from the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration, except for the categories Manufacturer Parent Company and Product Classification.
    The Parent Company and the Product Classification were added by ICIJ.
    The parent company information is based on 2017 public records. The device classification information comes from FDA’s Product Classification by Review Panel, based on matches of recall data from the U.S. and Australia.

  • Causa
    Ortho clinical diagnostics (ortho) recently identified that under very specific conditions, the temperature in the microwell subsystem (included on other vitros systems) may potentially be out of range without the system properly alerting the operator. although the vitros 4600 system and vitros 5,1 fs system do not include a microwell subsystem, it utilises the same software as other vitros systems. ortho has estimated that there is a less than 1 in 14 million possibility that this anomaly could occur in the microslide or microtip subsystems included on chemistry systems, based on e-connectivity data.In the low likelihood that the anomaly occurs (<1 in 14 million), it is possible to process samples outside of the proper temperature range where results will not be flagged with an “it” (incubator temperature) result code. this anomaly has never been known to result in a biased result, and it is not reasonable to expect that a biased result would ever occur due to the anomaly.
  • Acción
    Ortho has determined that the anomaly is due to an error in the software code. The resolution is currently under development and will be provided in a future version of software. Due to the low likelihood for this anomaly to occur, Ortho is not requiring users to monitor the temperature of their system. However, users may choose to verify that their system is within the proper temperature range. This action has been closed-out on 29/08/2016.
