  • Causa
    Ortho clinical diagnostics (ortho) has initiated this recall to customers with an ortho provue analyzer on which the reader camera brightness value (brillo) was detected to be outside of the specified range. the approved specification for the ortho provue? reader camera brightness is 101 to 128. exceeding the upper range limit of 128 could potentially affect the classification of very low strength (<1+) reactions and may grade the reactions negative instead of as indeterminate ("?"). however the risk is reduced by the fact that any processed cards are read at the same camera brightness (brillo) setting that was established at the time that the reference image was created after optics alignment and adjustment procedures were performed.
