Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
There is a possibility of reproducibility, accuracy, and/or QC failures in antibiotic susceptibility testing (AST) for H. influenzae. This may cause product discard, delayed results, or additional adverse diagnostic outcomes, such as a delay in diagnosis, the selection of inappropriate antibiotics, or extended duration of antibiotic exposure and the treatment process.
