CoaguCheck PT Strips Recalled

Roche Diagnostics have issued a recall of CoaguCheck PT test strips. The strips are used to test the blood clotting time of patients who are using anticoagulants or blood thinners. Depending on the results of the test, patients may need to take corrective measures. Defects in the strips can lead to false results and incorrect medical action as a result, with a high potential for serious or life-threatening injuries.
