  • Causa
    Perkin elmer has become aware about lifecycle risk calculation problem that can potentially take place with assisted reproduction screening where an egg donor is involved. the change in calculated risk is dependent on the age difference between the mother and the egg donor. in the worst case, if the age of the mother is substantially higher than the egg donor's age. a true low risk value can be turned as high and thereby cause indirect harm because of possibility for an unnecessary medical intervention.
