  • Causa
    Siemens healthcare diagnostics has identified multiple issues with the advia centaur® xpt system software v1.0.1 (bundle 1.0.912 smn 10819704) and v1.0.2 (bundle 1.0.1086 smn 11219806)., when running thcg samples with an initial dilution of 1 to 200, without processing neat specimens, it is potentially possible to miss a positive thcg value where the neat value is less than 1000. a lookback of 48 hours is recommended for negative thcg samples if neat values were not initially run for thcg and large dilutions were employed., there is the extremely unlikely potenial to transpose patient results when running in rack order mode without positive sample identificiation., similarly a lookback of 48 hours for any instruments running in this mode is recommended.
