FDA: Monitoring System Coming off Market

Alere Inc. is voluntarily withdrawing its INRatio and INRatio2 PT/INR Monitoring System from the market due to potentially inaccurate results.

Alere is working with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to determine the appropriate timing for the removal of the product and will provide guidance on transitioning patients to an alternate solution to allow them to continue anti-coagulation monitoring.

The FDA website has more information.
