  • Cause
    Abbott diagnostics has identified an issue with the architect toxo igm assay where an increase in grayzone and/or false reactive results have been observed for samples from immunocompromised patients or newborns as well as cord blood samples for certain lot numbers. these sample types share the commonality of low total igm titer. internal studies with the architect toxo igm assay have shown that pregnant women samples and serum and plasma blood donor samples are not impacted and meet assay specificity claims.Assay sensitivity is not impacted. there is the potential for false reactive patient results that may be due to reduced specificity in low total igm titer samples (eg. samples from immunocompromised patients or newborns or cord blood samples).
  • Action
    Users are advised to review the letter with their Medical Director. Additional testing with a secondary method is recommended to confirm reactive results (= 0.60 Index or = 1.00 S/CO) for samples from immunocompromised patients or newborns or cord blood samples and other samples with expected low IgM concentrations. Abbott has identified a solution to address this issue with a planned product modification expected in Q1 2017.

  • 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.
