  • Cause
    The manufacturer sentinel has confirmed a performance issue with three specific lots of multigent creatinine (enzymatic) reagent which may result in quality control values shifting out of acceptable ranges or erratic patient results, and this issue is not resolved through recalibration.Sentinel has determined that although the probability of occurrence is remote, a potential delay may exist in the generation of patients' results due to quality control values falling outside of expected ranges. internal investigations made on quality controls showed a variability from -26% to +4% for serum samples and from -20% to +4% for urine samples.
  • Action
    Abbott is advising users to discontinue use of the impacted lots immediately and destroy any remaining inventory of impacted lots according to their laboratory procedures. If you have an alternate reagent lot available in inventory, switch to this alternate lot, or use a new lot provided. The customer letter is to be reviewed with the laboratory Medical Director.

  • 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.
