The ProbeTec ET Instrument is an in-vitro diagnostic medical device used for the detection of chlamydia and gonorrhea in symptomatic patients (patients who have symptoms of the disease) and in asymptomatic patients (patients without symptoms of the disease). In August 2003, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's Center for Devices and Radiological Health posted a Class I recall notice for the ProbeTec ET Instrument. The recalling firm is Becton Dickinson & Co. of Sparks, Maryland.
A component of the in-vitro diagnostic device was incorrectly installed causing false positive and false negative results. Continued use of the defective instrument could result in a moderate to high risk of serious adverse health consequences, including death.
