Adding to a lengthy list of problems faced by Waltham-based diagnostics firm Alere as it aims to complete its merger with Abbott came one more late last week: A new class-action lawsuit over a home blood coagulation test that was recalled over concerns of ita accuracy. The lawsuit is similar to one filed in California last month, according to John Roddy, a partner in the Boston offices of Alabama-based law firm Bailey & Glasser LLP, which filed the latest class-action lawsuit against Alere on Friday in federal court in Boston. Both address problems with the INRatio home blood test sold by Alere (ALR), used by patients who take blood thinners to determine the optimum size of dose needed for treatment.
