Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
Samples containing high levels of ALKP (or an interfering substance) could deplete the available substrate in the reagent layer of a VITROS ALKP Slide and not post the substrate deleption (DP) code, which may result in the System reporting an incorrect value (lower than the actual value), which may result in missed or delayed diagnosis of liver disease.
