Event Description
A customer in (b)(6) reported to biomérieux falsely elevated results when testing with vidas® ck mb (ref (b)(4)). Although product reference (b)(4) is not sold/ distributed in the united states, a similar product is (reference (b)(4)). The patient in this event was diagnosed with nste-acs one year ago. The patient has had multiple samples tested with results as follows: on (b)(6) 2017: 27. 41 ng/ml (24. 75 ng/ml repeated on vidas), on (b)(6) 2017: >300 ng/ml (>300 ng/ml repeated on vidas). Ckmb mass retested on roche cobas®: 0. 95ng/ml (0-6. 22 ng/ml ). On (b)(6) 2017: 53. 42 ng/ml (53. 93 ng/ml repeated on vidas). Ckmb mass retested on cobas: 0. 78 ng/ml (0-6. 22 ng/ml ). On (b)(6) 2018: 11. 09 ng/ml. On (b)(6) 2018: 86. 66 ng/ml. On (b)(6) 2018: 67. 79 ng/ml. Ckmb mass retested on cobas: 0. 80 ng/ml (0-6. 22 ng/ml). The physicians determined that the negative ck-mb results were more consistent with the clinical symptoms of the patient. The patient is reported as doing well and that these elevated ck-mb results had no influence on the treatment of the patient. The customer reported that patient results were not affected, both lab results were reported to the physician, no patient was harmed or treated incorrectly, and the delay in reporting results was one half to one day due to retesting the samples. An internal biomérieux investigation will be initiated.
