Alere recalls PT/INR monitor system

Alere is recalling the Alere INRatio PT/INR monitor system.

The TGA says steps taken by Alere to address the potential for the device to provide an incorrect international normalised ratio (INR) result have not adequately mitigated the identified risks.

The TGA is working with Alere on developing the recall strategy, including communication to affected patients and health professionals on safely transitioning to another testing method.
