  • Causa
    There is a potential that fluorescent platelet (plt-f) and immature platelet fraction (ipf%) results performed using the recalled lots may exhibit lower than expected plt-f and ipf values. the issue may be recognized by a large discrepancy between the impedance platelet (plt-i) value and a false low plt-f value. in most cases, the falsely decreased plt-f results displayed a "plt abn scattergram" message with asterisks beside the results indicating the data is unreliable. in rare instances, platelet flags may be absent. the plt-i counts are unaffected. the plt-f is a reflex test used to confirm plt-i results due to flagging or low values. as such, the likely impact to patient results is low. affected results display a discrepancy between the plt-i and plt-f, with lower than expected plt-f results that do not match the patient's clinical picture.
