The problem is with the Bio-Rad VARIANT nbs Sickle Cell Program Resin Update CD-ROM software; Model Number: 250-3020, included in VARIANT nbs Sickle Cell Progam Reorder Pack #250-3000. This CD-ROM software included in specific lots of VARIANT nbs Sickle Cell Progam Reorder Pack causes all customized settings in the Setup/Test/Data Setup subscreen and Setup/Test/Pattern Setting subscreen to be overwritten with the default settings when the Update Kit procedure is performed.The VARIANTnbs Sickle Cell Program has been validated using the default Resin Update CDROM parameters for the intended use. However, there is a risk that the customer’s custom pattern settings may be different than the default settings, resulting in a different pattern being assigned to some samples that the laboratory has validated. Following the complaints from 4 customers who experienced these issues, the firm initiated this recall.
