    This is a follow up to a previous recall in 2015 (tga ref: rc-2015-rn-00417-1). it has been identified that the affected barcodes were distributed from february 2010, not june 2012 as originally understood. perkinelmer have become aware that the content of the second of the two #023 barcode id labels provided on each page of the barcode id label binder are incorrect. the second barcode id label #023 symbol incorrectly identifies as #024 when scanned. in the event measurement protocols have been programmed for both id #023 and #024, and the wizard2 gamma counter scans the affected barcode label, the protocol associated with barcode id #024 is executed. if the error is undetected, the wizard2 gamma counter may produce erroneous results.The issue will lead to a delay in reporting results due to the delay to resolve the issue and retest the samples or test new samples. dependent on individual patient clinical status an incorrect result may impact disease progression or renal function.
