  • Causa
    A small number of multi-reagent cassettes in affected lots have been found with labels containing product information on the wrong side of the cassette. the use of affected multi-reagent cassettes may lead to false negative or false positive results, causing a potential misclassification of the patient or donor blood groups or rh/k phenotypes or incorrect antibody detection results.  this may be of particular clinical concern where there is no confirmation of the group (e.G. in testing of newborns or where reverse grouping is not in place). ortho clinical diagnostics have sent out a field safety notice having identified the cause of the manufacturing issue.
  • Acción
