Responsible Entity Abacus ALS Pty Ltd
Reason/Issue Abacus are informing users regarding an issue regarding ImmunoCAP Specific IgE Control H vial lot CYYAC. Precipitates have been identified in the affected vials and kit lots. If samples containing precipitates are used, an increased frequency of functional disturbances (error messages e.g. clot error etc.) is to be expected in the instruments. Occurrence of precipitate in the control, such as in vial lot CYYAC, could give an increased frequency of functional disturbances in the instruments. However, in-house studies undertaken by the manufacturer show no indication that the IgE results would be affected by the precipitates.
Recall Action Recall
Recall Action Instructions Abacus is advising users to inspect stock and discard any remaining kits of the affected lots. Affected product will be replaced by unaffected lots. This action has been closed out on 13 Jun 2017
