Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
Elute may become colored due to the residual presence of heme group origination from hemoglobin present in whole blood samples as well as dried spot (DBS) samples. This can potentially cause the inhibition of PCR reactions and result in an uninterpretable test result. If using an Internal Control (IC) in the extraction process the IC could potentially be inhibited as well and invalidate test results.
