    On Dec 19th all Roche affiliates (the direct consignees) worldwide were notified via Safety Board Notification (SBN) and subsequent Field Safety Notification (EX-US) and UMDC TD00090 (US) SBN and FSN revised Dec 20th due to 3 affected part numbers missed on original letter.

For assays that directly relate to clinical therapy decision making (e.g. ER/PR, HER2, ALK, etc.), it is additionally important to select a same slide positive control tissue with sufficient sensitivity to detect small decreases in intensity that may cause borderline positive cases to appear as negative (e.g. HER2 2+ vs. 1+). Although the use of same slide controls is considered optimal laboratory practice and strongly recommended by Ventana, customers may revert to standard run controls once non-impacted product is received. In order to reduce the risk of this issue impacting patient care, customers not using same slide controls as a standard practice should follow their
