Recently, Roche Diagnostics issued a recall of CoaguCheck PT test strips. Patients using anticoagulants or blood thinners have their blood tested to determine clotting time. The strips are used for that purpose, both by patients at home and by medical professionals. Depending on the blood clotting time, corrective measures may need to be taken. A defect in the CoaguCheck PT strips may cause falsely elevated results and prompt incorrect medical action, with the potential for serious or life threatening injuries.
