BD Research Reagent Product Notice

Overview

BD recently initiated a voluntary recall (February 2017) for a subset of Research Use Only (RUO) single vial reagents with fluorophores. BD recommends that customers discard any remaining inventory of these items and request a replacement or, until replacement products are available, perform quality control using biological cells per their standard protocol. Additionally, BD recommends that customers review any data that may have been generated using products from the affected product list. The product degradation from prolonged light exposure has the potential to result in reduced signal intensity that may cause changes in cell staining patterns, lower quantitative values for positive populations or no signal. In the case of tandem dyes, it may also result in changes to the values in the fluorescence spectral overlap matrix for the reagent.
