  • Causa
    Ortho-clinical diagnostics (ocd) has identified instances where the vitros system allowed urine samples for assays that required acidified pre-treatment to be metered from the same sample container as assays that required no pre-treatment when the sample was programmed. the anomaly occurs when manually programming urine samples or using a downloaded sample program from a laboratory information system (lis) and the sample program contain assays requiring sample pre-treatment and assays requiring no sample pre-treatment.If this anomaly occurs, it is possible for vitros systems to process urine samples without the proper pre-treatment, potentially leading to biased patient results.
  • Acción
    The mitigation to this anomaly is currently under development. OCD will issue a follow up notification upon availability of the software update. OCD is providing users with temporary work around instructions and advising users that for urine samples that require pre-treatment to place each of the pre-treated samples in a separate container and manually program the individual samples. Also, OCD is asking users to discuss concerns regarding previously reported results with your Laboratory Medical Director to determine the appropriate course of action. This action has been closed-out on 04/08/2016.
