  • Reason
    The manufacturer of the analyser, sysmex corporation, has informed siemens healthcare diagnostics about an issue potentially affecting the factor viii results. the factor viii chromogenic assay generates a curve from which a percentage result is calculated. the sysmex cs-2100i and cs-5100 automated blood coagulation analysers may generate an irregular curve that under certain circumstances could lead to an erroneously increased result with a factor viii chromogenic assay. the irregular curve is not flagged by the system.
  • Action
    Siemens is advising their customers to run all Factor VIII Chromogenic assays in duplicate and confirm results in conjunction with the patient's clinical history. A software update is expected to be completed mid-2014 to correct the issue.
