  • Causa
    Whole blood samples (either fresh or frozen) for hba1c testing are pre-treated with multigent hemoglobin denaturant. the pre-treated samples are placed on the architect systems and tested for glycated hemoglobin (hba1c) and total hemoglobin (thb) concentrations. according to the package insert pretreated samples must be allowed to incubate for a minimum of 5 minutes at 15 to 30 degrees celcius prior to testing. pretreated samples are stated to be stable for "up to 8 hours at 15 to 30 degrees celcius and up to 48 hours if stored at 2 to 8 degrees celcius". however recent studies have demonstrated that hba1c measurements increase with time after the samples are pre-treated. therefore it is necessary to change the handling instructions for pre-treating samples for the multigent hba1c assay. the investigation to determine root cause is ongoing.

  • Comentario del fabricante
    “We are in constant communication with regulatory agencies and competent authorities worldwide which allows us to implement global recalls or in-country communication quickly and effectively,” Abbott, which now owns St. Jude Medical told ICIJ in a statement. In addition to sending global notices to physicians worldwide, we also make sure that product advisories are available online and classification of product recalls and product advisories are determined by global regulatory bodies which can impact the timing in any given country. MD companies follow varying regulations in different countries. In come countries software is not regulated so a recall in one country related to software would not be classified as a recall or field action in another. In addition, review cycles within the regulatory process can be different in each country which can impact communication and recall timing.
