  • Reason
    Siemens healthcare diagnostics has identified an issue with millipore water purification module (wpm) progard pretreatment packs when used with the dimension vista triglyceride assay. an investigation by siemens identified the potential for patient and quality control (qc) triglyceride results to be erroneously elevated as a result of contamination introduced by the millipore progard pretreatment pack’s filter fibres. a positive bias of up to 1.38 mmol/l has been observed. the potential for falsely elevated results could occur when processing the triglyceride assay immediately following the change of the progard pretreatment pack in the millipore wpm. siemens is not recommending a review of previously generated results.
