Event Description
A customer in (b)(6) notified biomérieux of false positive citrate results for escherichia coli (e. Coli) atcc® 25922 in association with api® 20 e 25 strips (ref. 20100, lot 1006601250). The customer performed testing four (4) times using api® 20 e 25strips lot 1006601250 with two (2) strains of e. Coli atcc® 25922 and obtained a positive result for all assays. E. Coli atcc® 25922 was also tested in parallel using api® 20 e 25strips lot 1006611730, and obtained a negative citrate result. The customer confirmed the expected citrate result for e. Coli atcc® 25922 is negative. As there is no patient associated with this quality control strain, there is no adverse event related to any patient's state of health. Biomérieux will initiate an internal investigation.
