Durham, North Carolina
bioMerieux, Inc is initiating a voluntary recall of the Vironostika HIV-1 Microelisa System for Lot# 160354. This recall is being conducted as a result of an internal quality investigation in which bioMerieux was able to confirm one customer complaint of no reactivity on a single coated plate from this lot. Under most conditions of use, a non-reactive plate would be detected by the kit's positive control. However, the potential for false negative results does exist if a customer combines strip wells from a reactive plate with strip wells from a non-reactive plate. This combination would result in a valid run if the kit controls were tested on the reactive strip. Customers are asked to stop using kit Lot# 160354 and return any unused kits.
