Code Info All lot numbers
Product Distributed Qty 3056 units
Reason For Recall Roche Diagnostics internal investigations in R&D have shown that the claims for biotin interference and the sample stability given in the Elecsys ß-CrossLaps (ß-CL) assay package insert version 5, could not be reproduced. The ß-CrossLaps test results contribute to the monitoring of antiresorptive therapy. False low or false normal results may lead to delayed diagnosis and treatment of osteoporosis in the short term. To date, no customer complaints have been reported.
