Becton Dickinson Diagnostics
Becton Dickinson (BD) has determined that these lot numbers of CMVScan test kits may result in false positive results when testing with plasma specimens (EDTA, CPD, CP2D have been reported). BD is requesting customers to discontinue use of these lot numbers and discard any remaining packages. They further recommend the results of testing using plasma specimens be confirmed using another CMV testing method and if a false positive plasma result was reported, to contact the requesting physician.
