    Company   Roche Diagnostics
    Date   03 Nov 2003
    Brand name   CoaguChek PT Test Strips
    Batch or Lot no.   Lot 583, packs of 12 - used with Roche CoaguChek S meter
    Reason   A fault in Lot 583 of CoaguChek PT test strips, packs of 12, which may cause an inaccurate INR result. The fault is in the 'easy open' notch on the individual foil pouches containing the strips. In faulty pouches, the notch cuts into the seal of the pouch, which can result in a damaged test strip. There is a small risk that, as a result, patients using these strips may receive inadequate anti-coagulant therapy, and therefore be at increased risk of thrombosis.

    You will find the lot number on the top of the outer pack, after the word 'Lot'. It is also stamped on each individual foil pouch.
