Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics has become aware of deferoxamine interference with Dimension and Dimension Vista IRON assays at a different concentration than listed in the Instructions for Use (IFU).
FDA Determined
Cause 2
Error in labeling
Action Siemens mailed an Urgent Medical Device Correction letter to all customers who received the Dimension and Dimension Vista IRON Flex reagent with an update to the Limitation of Procedure section for the Dimension and Dimension Visa IRON assays Instructions For Use (IFU) to indicate that: patients treated with metal-binding drugs (e.g. deferoxamine) may have depressed iron values, as chelated iron may not properly react in the iron assay. Customers were told that the information provided in the letter, related to deferoxamine, supersedes the information related to deferoxamine int he current IRON IFU's for Dimension and Dimension Vista products until the IFU's are updated.
