  • Acción
    On 11/19/2014, IMPORTANT PRODUCT CORRECTION NOTIFICATION letter (Ref. CL2014-296, dated 11/19/2014) was sent via FedEx overnight courier or ORTHO PLUS e-Communications and/or US Postal Service Priority Mail (for PO Boxes only) to the US consignees (OCD Direct, Drop-Ship and US Federal Government) to inform them of the issue and advise them of the required actions. Immediately install the most recent ADD using the All Assay Data option. If any of your calibrations are expired, the system will post PZB-005 condition codes. Perform calibrations prior to using those reagents. As expected, calibrations that will expire within one hour will also be flagged. Continue to install the most recent ADD at least once each week using the All Assay Data load option so that the system properly flags expired calibrations. --- Foreign affiliates were informed by e-mail on 11/19/2014 of the issue and instructed to notify their consignees of the issue and required actions.
