  • Causa
    Ortho clinical diagnostics (ocd) updated the reagent pack (i.E. bottle) for vitros signal reagent, beginning with lot 4492. some customers have reported that their vitros 3600 or 5600 system cannot detect the presence of the vitros signal reagent pack when using lot 4492 or above.An investigation by ocd determined that sensors on the vitros system may not detect the base of the updated vitros signal reagent packs due to a larger indentation at the base of the reagent pack. as a result, some vitros 3600 or 5600 systems may not be able to continually detect vitros signal reagent packs in the load positions or during testing at the in-use position.If the sensor cannot detect the base of the pack, that pack cannot be used to process samples.
