  • Causa
    Ortho clinical diagnostics (ocd) has become aware of an increase in eae condition codes when using vitros 250 or 350 chemistry systems. when customers perform an on-analyzer dilution it is performed by the vitros chemistry system using the vitros mixing cup arrays and diluents. ocd's investigation has found that while performing on-analyzer dilution some customers have reported an increase in eae conditions codes ("sample metering dilution error"). when an eae condition code occurs the processing for that patient sample is automatically cancelled by the system and the user is alerted. ocd's investigation has determined that the increased rate of eae condition codes is attributed to out-of-specification vitros mixing cup arrays. ocd is working with the oem manufacturer of the mixing cup arrays to determine the root cause of the issue.
