  • Causa
    Ortho clinical diagnostics (ortho) received reports of positively biased crp results using vitros crp slides when diluting samples. investigation undertaken by ortho identified that samples diluted (3x recommended dilution or higher) using vitros chemistry products specialty diluent, vitros chemistry products fs diluent pack 3 or a low crp concentration sample had positively biased results if the endogenous level of crp in the diluent is not subtracted from the final result. the magnitude of bias increases as the dilution factor increases.
  • Acción
    Users are advised to follow the instructions in the customer letter to perform dilutions when processing samples above the measuring range for CRP.
