Alere Inc, which has agreed to be bought by Abbott Laboratories, said on Friday it filed a complaint, seeking to compel Abbott to obtain all antitrust approvals required to complete the deal.

Alere said in April its board had rejected a request by Abbott to call off its $5.8 billion (4.39 billion pounds) offer. Abbott had raised concerns about the accuracy of various representations, warranties and covenants made by Alere in the merger agreement.
