Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
A reagent stability issue (still under investigation) causes less separation in the calibration curve, which affects results across the entire range. For controls, maximum bias of +/- 35% for low levels, +/- 33% for mid-range levels, and +/- 47% for high levels is observed. Bias in patient samples ranges from -15.7% to +5.2% with an average bias of -5.6% when comparing the QMS everolimus assay to an everolimus LC-MS reference method. Patient samples across the measuring range  sub-therapeutic, therapeutic, and supra-therapeutic  could be affected.
