If further guidance is needed, please contact your Abbott sales representative.  - This letter should be reviewed with the treating physician or healthcare provider to ensure they are aware of the issue and can determine whether re-evaluation of the patient is necessary.  - If you have forwarded any product to other laboratories, please inform them of this FSN.  The IMB recommends that results with the ARCHITECT Intact PTH assay are reviewed as appropriate to determine whether re-evaluation of the patient is necessary.  Please forward this safety notice to all those who need to be aware of this action within your organisation and to maintain awareness over this safety notice for an appropriate time period.

  • 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.
