  • Cause
    Diagnostic kits for self-testing have been placed on the irish market by the above named manufacturer / supplier which do not meet requirements of medical device legislation and therefore pose a risk to public health and safety. affected hiv test kits and chlamydia test kits have been found on the irish market.  there is concern that the following affected kits may also have been placed on the irish market: syphilis, pregnancy, abo/rhesus blood typing, cholesterol and prostate specific antigen (psa) test kits. this may have resulted in supply to pharmacists by celtic integrated network or to members of the public directly via www.Testdirect.Com or internet auction sites e.G. ebay. the major issue of concern is that some of these test kits have been assembled from components of other kits that have been shown to be past their expiry date.  there is also concern over manufacture, assembly and labelling of these kits in an inappropriate manner and in an unsuitable environment.  this may result in supply to the market of test kits that do not perform as intended, and thereby pose risk to public health and safety. the possible consequences of the use of these products include, but are not limited to: inappropriate/inaccurate results leading to misdiagnosis/undetected illness, lack of appropriate medical therapy and potential for transmission to others of undetected infectious diseases.
