  • Reason
    Low qc recovery observed on carbamazepine (carb) results immediately following a gentamicin (gent) assay or a digoxin (dig) assay. when gent or dig precedes carb, the carb test result is artificially low (as much as -25%). phny was determined to also exhibit a similar carryover effect on carb. all others were found not to produce the same reagent probe-based carryover effect.
