  • Notas adicionales en la data
    This problem can result in high patient and quality control results. The false control results and the patient's thyroglobulin may lead to an additional test. Based on the internal test, the observed increase in results ranged from 11% to 18% when the calibrators were reconstituted with 2.0 mL of distilled water and allowed to stand for 30 minutes prior to use. All levels of control and patient outcomes were affected. The percentage increase in response observed depends on the reconstitution time before use for the affected lots. A reconstitution time of 1 hour and 40 minutes or more using the affected batches provided appropriate recovery of control and patient outcomes. ///// UPDATE - 4/3/2014 - The company forwarded a response letter to all customers who received the aforementioned lots informing them of the necessary actions and forwarded an uncommitted lot. If any service still has lots quoted in this alert, please contact the company.
