Reason of Field Safety Corrective Action:
Ventana Medical Systems, Inc. (Ventana, also known as Roche Tissue Diagnostics (RTD) outside the US) has received increased customer complaints reporting leaking and sticking reagent dispensers. These reports are currently focused on horseradish peroxidase (HRP) dispensers (part of the iView, ultraView and OptiView detection kits, as well as CINtec PLUS Cytology Kit) and with Hematoxylin II. Ventana has identified the cause of the issue, and is working to correct it. Additionally, Ventana has mandated specific requirements for same slide controls, detailed below, for customers with affected product in inventory.
All affected product has been placed on hold. Ventana has reworked all product in its inventory and is in the process of manufacturing new lots for distribution and replacement of customer affected kits. Customers will be notified when corrected product is available.
Affected kits may continue to be used by customers until corrected product is available, however Ventana is mandating that the affected IHC detection kits (iView, ultraView, OptiView) must only be used in conjunction with same-slide controls.
