The intended use: The Access AccuTnI assay is a paramagnetic particle, chemiluminescent immunoassay for the quantitative determination of cardiac troponin I (cTnI) levels in human serum and plasma using the Access Immunoassay Systems to aid in the diagnosis and treatment of myocardial infarction and cardiac muscle damage. Cardiac Troponin I determination also aids in the risk stratification of patients with unstable angina or non-ST segment elevation acute coronary syndromes with respect to relative risk of mortality, myocardial infarction, or increased probability of ischemic events requiring urgent revascularization procedures.

Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
The recall was initiated because Beckman Coulter has confirmed customer reports that different results have been obtained using the same patient samples on Access/Access 2 and UniCel Dxl platforms. Values obtained with UniCel Dxl systems have been demonstrated to have a positive bias compared to values obtained with Access or Access 2 systems.
FDA Determined
Cause 2
