PRODUCT / LOT NUMBER / EXPIRATION DATE:
FETALSCREEN (Product Code 780540)
Ortho-Clinical Diagnostics, Inc. (OCD) has received reports of weak or negative reactivity with the positive control provided in these kits. Testing has indicated that in the presence of a weakly reactive positive control, patient samples of the same concentration may not show rosetting. This could result in the laboratory not performing subsequent quantitative testing that may be required to determine the extent of fetal maternal hemorrhage. Consignees have been asked to discontinue using and discard any remaining kits.
