Germany's medical regulator has asked all companies selling the blood thinner heparin in Germany to test all batches of their image product for signs of contamination, the regulator said Wednesday.

Germany's Federal Institute for Drugs and Medical Devices, known by the German acronym BFARM, asked 10 manufacturers of the drug to carry out the additional tests and expects results soon, perhaps by next week, Ulrich Hagemann, a pharmaceutical safety official at the agency, said in a phone interview. He said he couldn't name the companies for legal reasons, but said all are German.
