Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
This recall was initiated because Beckman Coulter has received reports of erroneous test results being reported as a result of assay reagent packs being transferred between systems. Erroneous results will be generated as a result of missing or incorrect assay reagents. In these cases both false positive and false negative results are possible, depending upon the assay configuration.
