  • Causa
    Ortho clinical diagnostics (ortho) has initiated this recall due to a potential for negatively biased serum sample results to be generated when using vitros ca slides gen 29. ortho confirmed an average negative bias of -0.45 mg/dl (-0.11 mmol/l) within the serum reference interval (8.4 - 10.2 mg/dl or (2.10 - 2.55 mmol/l) when using vitros ca slides gen 29. plasma and serum samples are similarly affected as both sample types use the same calibration parameters (math) when results are produced. though unconfirmed to date ortho has no indication that urine sample results generated when using vitros ca slides gen 29 are affected. as a result customers are being instructed to discontinue the use of vitros ca slides gen 29.
