  • Notas adicionales en la data
    > Roche Diagnostica Brazil advises that affected kits already distributed may continue to be used by customers until the manufacturer-corrected product is available provided that the affected IHC detection kits (iView, Ultraview, OptiView) are used together on the same blade of the controls as described in the operating instructions. These controls should be appropriate for each assay and capable of detecting false negative results due to potential failure of complete or partial dispensing of the reagent. > For trials that are directly related to clinical therapeutic decision making (eg ER / PR, HER2, ALK, etc.), this action is additionally important to select a positive control tissue on the same slide with sufficient sensitivity to detect small decreases in intensity that can cause positive borderline cases appearing as negative (eg HER2 2+ vs 1+). Although the use of controls on the same blade is considered an ideal laboratory practice strongly recommended by Ventana, customers can revert to standard execution controls when the unaffected product is provided. > In order to reduce the risk of this problem that can affect patient care, clients who do not use controls on the same slide as a standard practice should follow their local procedures and policies for retrospective retest, especially for IHC trials and in cases which do not contain an internal biological control. Any further testing should be limited to testing performed on affected batches.
