Product Detail

Product Description Code Info Classification Reason for Recall Product Quantity Recall Number
Gen-Probe LIFECODES PF4 Enhanced assay, Catalog No. X-HAT45 GTI PF4 Enhanced is designed as a solid phase enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). Kit Lot Number 3000389 Class II Lifecodes PF4 Enhanced assay, lot number 3000389, is being recalled because of observed inconsistent replicate values when testing the kit Positive Control and patient samples. The variation in reactivity can lead to invalid assays. If an invalid assay is obtained, those results should not be reported and the test should be re-run. An invalid assay would not result in significant harm to a patient. However, some kits from this lot may produce false negative results. A false negative result could contribute to a delay in diagnosis and initiation of alternative therapies, and may increase the risk of complications. 386 kits (370 US, 16 OUS) Z-1022-2013
