ARTG Number: 175699
Recall Action Level Retail
Recall Action Classification Class II
Recall Action Commencement Date 28/01/2015
Responsible Entity Siemens Ltd Diagnostics Division
Reason/Issue Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics has determined that incorrect calibrator lot values were assigned for ADVIA Chemistry Systems Drug Calibrator I, lot 3JD018, for the ADVIA Chemistry Systems Phenytoin 2 (PHNY_2) and Phenobarbital 2 (PHNB_2) assays. This issue was determined to be the result of calibrator value miscalculation. Calibrator lot 3JD018 has now been value assigned to align with the correct calibrator values.

This poses a risk of an incorrect value of -10% being assigned for Phenytoin testing and 3% for Phenobarbital.

Siemens considers these differences are negligible and would not be considered substantially relevant to impact clinical care in practice.
