Event Description
A customer in the united states reported to biomérieux a misidentification api proficiency survey, as proteus hauseri 96%, in association with the vitek® 2 gn card. The sample was plated and subbed twice before set-up. Identification was not repeated on vitek® 2. There is no indication or report from the customer that the discrepant result led to any adverse event related to a patient's state of health. An internal biomérieux investigation has been initiated.
 
Manufacturer Narrative
A biomérieux internal investigation was conducted on a api survey organism (api proficiency urine ur-11). The organism was tested on multiple lots of gn cards in duplicate, including 4 lots reported by customers and 1 random gn lot. The api 20 e was performed, as was the vitek® ms. On 2 of the customer lots, a low discrimination call of p. Penneri / p. Hauseri was obtained. On the remaining 2 customer lots tested and the random lot, a low discrimination call of p. Penneri / p. Pneumotropica was obtained. Api 20 e gave a good identification call of p. Vulgaris group. Vitek® ms gave a low discrimination call of p. Penneri / p. Vulgaris. Since the organism is indole positive, the vitek® ms call of p. Vulgaris would be correct. A comparison of reaction results for cards giving the misidentification call of p. Penneri / p. Hauseri against the expected reaction results for p. Vulgaris revealed 3 atypical negative reactions (ple, ilatk, aglu). A comparison of reaction results for cards giving the misidentification call of p. Penneri/p. Pneumotropica against the expected reaction results for p. Vulgaris revealed 4 atypical negative reactions (proa, ple, ilatk, aglu). The investigation concluded the submitted isolate exhibits atypical growth behavior. The vitek® 2 gn test kit performed as intended.
