  • Causa
    It has been confirmed that some lots of vitros nt-probnp reagent packs exhibited the potential for an increased frequency of calibration failures, with an unexpected increase in signal for the level 1 calibrator, potentially causing a failure of the calibration parameters. preliminary testing has indicated that the calibration failure is related to a component of the vitros nt-probnp reagent pack and is not associated with the vitros nt-probnp calibrators. please note that investigations have confirmed that the increase in signal does not affect sample results (i.E., quality control or patient samples) within the 28 day calibration cycle.
  • Acción
