  • Causa
    The recall was initiated because the instruction for use (ifu) for access shbg does not specify the units of measure to be used when calculating the free androgen index (fai %). access shbg (nmol/l) values and access testosterone (ng/ml) values are reported in different default units. the testosterone value (when reported in ng/ml) requires conversion to nmol/l before the fai % can be calculated.
