Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
Software Anomaly: Ortho Clinical Diagnostics (OCD) has become aware that if a sample requires follow-up action, such as dilution or retesting due to a mechanical issue, it is possible for that sample to be routed to the sample storage drawer (Storage) prior to the completion of the necessary pending action. A delay in patient test result(s) reporting could occur as operator is not alerted that results have not been produced and that further actions are required.
