Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
The reason for the recall is that the Siemens DCA HbA1c Reagent Kit was confirmed to display a positive bias without alerting the user. The potential impact of the defect is that erroneous test results could be reported and potentially lead to incorrect patient management of glucose control. A positive bias may be observed with eleven HbA1c affected lots. Positive bias was observed when the performance of these five HbA1c lots was compared to NGSP pooled patient target-value assigned samples and the maximum bias observed was 19%.
