Event Description
Intended use: api® listeria is a qualitative standardized system for the identification of listeria. It uses miniaturized tests as well as a specially adapted database. Inoculation and reading of the strip are performed manually and the identification is obtained using an identification software. The complete list of organisms that it is possible to identify with this system is given in the associated technical brochure - information for identification software. Incident description: on the (b)(6) 2021, a customer in (b)(6) reported to biomérieux a potential misidentification with the product api listeria (ref 10300, batch 1008506770, expiry date 21-dec-2021) with an external quality assessment (eqa) sample. The customer tested an eqa sample, 20a round ma191, from lgc and has reported an issue with the confirmation part of the test. A confirmation using api listeria was performed and for all analysts, the result was very good identification of listeria grayi 99. 8%. Based on the report from lgc: this sample contained a ¿-haemolytic strain of listeria innocua; 46. 7% of participants incorrectly reported the presence of listeria monocytogenes. This strain was obtained for use in the mars wrigley pt scheme and has undergone whole genome sequencing and identified as listeria innocua, the data provided being compliant with mars wrigley requirements. Results for the detection of listeria species were 96. 3% correct, indicating no issue with the quality of the sample batch and that an incorrect result is likely to be due to identification or confirmatory issues. There is no indication or report from the customer that this event led to any adverse event related to any patient's state of health. An investigation will be initiated.
