Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
The recall was initiated because Beckman Coulter has confirmed customer reports that DHEA measurements using DHEA RIA (REF DSL-8900) kit lots identified may overstate actual DHEA levels in patient samples.
FDA Determined
Cause 2
Action Beckman Coulter sent an "URGENT: PRODUCT CORRECTION ACTION" letter dated November 15, 2010 to all affected customers. The letter describes the product, problem, and actions to be taken by the customers. The letter instructs customers to discontinue using the affected products and discard them according to local regulations. Customers were asked to review patient DHEA results ran on the affected lots and interpret them in light of additional tests (such as LH, FSH, testosterone, DHEA-S, cortisol, 17-hydroxyprogesterone, and estradiol) and the patient's clinical status. A response form was enclosed for customers to complete and return. Contact the Beckman Coulter Technical Support Center at 1-800-854-3633 in the United States, or their local Beckman Coulter Representative for questions regarding this notification.
