Abbott: enriching people’s lives

Abbott is a global, diversified healthcare firm. Among the world’s largest and most successful corporations, Abbott has a presence in more than 130 countries. Abbott is dedicated to the discovery, development, manufacture and marketing of health care products and services. Around the world, the company’s 70,000 plus employees are committed to improving people’s lives through cost effective health care technologies.

Abbott’s commitment to Child Nutrition: For more than 100 years, Abbott has been a leader in developing innovative, science-based nutrition solutions that help children develop and grow, and live healthier lives. Although more can be done to further support breastfeeding around the world, iron–fortified infant formula is the only safe, nutritious and recommended alternative when breast milk is not an option. Abbott constantly strive to create infant formulas and nutritional products that offer the best of the alternatives to breast milk. Abbott is committed to continuous innovation and to developing formulas that perform as close to the gold standard of breast milk as possible.

Abbott wins Innovation Award: Abbott was named the overall Gold Winner of the 2009 Wall Street Journal Technology Innovation Awards for its Ibis T5000 Biosensor system, which is designed to detect and characterize a broad range of infectious agents in a given sample, including viruses, bacteria and fungi. Abbott’s Ibis system was singled out for the top honour, in part, because it promises to alert health officials to new disease strains, and may also guard against bioterrorism and enable hospitals to identify antibiotic-resistant bacteria in its environment.
