  • Cause
    Abbott diagnostics has identified a lot specific stability issue with two reagent lots 10533up00 and 10534up00. as the reagent ages, relative light unit (rlu) values for the calibration curve will decrease causing patient results calculated from this depressed curve to over-recover, potentially resulting in falsely elevated patient results. controls may not reflect reagent instability as recalibration may result in control values within acceptable ranges.Abbott studies have determined the worst case magnitude of elevation to be up to 30% for active-b12 concentrations close to 20 pmol/l and up to 20% for concentrations close to 30 pmol/l.
  • Action
    Abbott is advising users to discontinue use and immediately destroy any remaining inventory of the affected lots. The customer letter provided to users is to be reviewed with the Medical Director to determine if a review of results previously generated with the affected lots is required.

  • 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.
