Capture-R Ready Screen & Capture-R Ready ID
Audience: Blood Bank personnel and other healthcare professionals
Voluntary recall of specific lots of Capture-R Ready-Screen and Capture-R Ready-ID Solid Phase Test Wells, manufactured by Immucor, Inc. The recalled products are used by blood bank laboratories to screen for and identify unexpected antibodies. The recalling firm received complaints involving situations in which testing with these lots failed to detect some examples of anti-Fya. Product lots involved in these complaints include Capture-R Ready-Screen (I and II), Lots X2701, X2801 and X29; Capture-R Ready-Screen (4), Lots G0101, G02, G03; Capture-R Ready-Screen (Pooled Cells), Lots N42 and CW021; and Capture-R Ready-ID, Lots ID48 and ID49. Capture-R Ready-Screen Lot X29 has been potentially implicated in a transfusion reaction. No other blood group system antibodies have been associated with these complaints.
