One Step Pregnancy Test Alert 10 June 2020

One Step Pregnancy Test Lot Number HH040919 ​has given negative results on ladies in early pregnancy who have then gone on to show positive when using the same urine sample on another Lot Number.

Clinical areas which use the One Step Pregnancy Test are urged to check the Lot Number in use (which can be found on the back of the foil packet) and follow the steps below:

  • If the product has a different Lot number – please continue use
  • If has the  Lot Number HH040919 discontinue use, and source an alternative loan supply from other clinical areas
  • If the patient is still on-site please carry out another test with an alternative Lot Number or send a blood sample to the main laboratory for testing
  • Package up any of the affected Lot Number for collection and contact the POCT team on mtw-tr.poct@nhs.net for further advice
  • All new local deliveries should be checked and rejected if it is from Lot Number HH040919
