  • Reason
    Siemens healthcare diagnostics has confirmed a negative bias of approximately -20% for results obtained with n antiserum to human ceruloplasmin when calibrating ceruloplasmin with various lots of n protein standard sl. n/t protein controls sl for ceruloplasmin are similarly biased. --- the affected standards and controls for the affected lots were incorrectly value assigned, which led to a lower result compared to correctly assigned standards. note: n antiserum to human ceruloplasmin (ref ouie) works as intended. --- siemens investigation indicated that n protein standard sl and corresponding n/t protein control sl (levels low, mid and high) are inaccurately assigned for ceruloplasmin.
