  • Description du dispositif
    Alere INRatio2 PT/INR Professional Monitoring System || Model Number: 55128A || Product Usage: || The Alere INRatio¿/INRatio¿2 system uses a modified version of the one-stage PT test. After a drop of blood is applied to the test strip, it is drawn into the test area and mixed with reagents that initiate coagulation. When the blood clots, changes in impedance in the sample are detected by the monitor. The monitor calculates the PT and INR results from this impedance change and reports them on the display. The Alere INRatio/INRatio2 PT/INR Monitoring System is used for the quantitative measurement of Prothrombin Time (PT) in fresh, capillary whole blood. The Alere INRatio/INRatio2 PT/INR Monitoring System is intended for use outside the body (in vitro diagnostic use). The Alere INRatio/INRatio2 PT/INR Monitoring System is intended for professional and home use by people taking warfarin and other oral anticoagulant (blood thinning) therapy who need to monitor the clotting time of their blood. The Alere INRatio/INRatio2 PT/INR Monitoring System is not intended to be used for screening purposes.

  • Commentaire du fabricant
    “We are in constant communication with regulatory agencies and competent authorities worldwide which allows us to implement global recalls or in-country communication quickly and effectively,” Abbott, which now owns St. Jude Medical told ICIJ in a statement. In addition to sending global notices to physicians worldwide, we also make sure that product advisories are available online and classification of product recalls and product advisories are determined by global regulatory bodies which can impact the timing in any given country. MD companies follow varying regulations in different countries. In come countries software is not regulated so a recall in one country related to software would not be classified as a recall or field action in another. In addition, review cycles within the regulatory process can be different in each country which can impact communication and recall timing.
