When it comes to diagnosing diseases, every minute counts. That’s why we invest in developing innovative tools that give physicians the information they need to make a diagnosis and prescribe appropriate treatment sooner.
Our areas of expertise include:
We're committed to creating innovative technologies that help people with diabetes better manage their conditions. Our state-of-the-art blood glucose meters provide fast, accurate results and make testing more comfortable. For healthcare professionals, we offer point-of-care hand-held devices that provide fast, accurate results of glucose or beta-ketone levels, help minimize user errors and increase efficiency.
We understand that good nutrition provides the foundation for a lifetime of good health. That's why we develop a variety of science-based products that nourish infants, children and adults - from oral nutritional supplements to tube feeds. We also offer a variety of resources for patients, caregivers and healthcare professionals, including a free nutrition helpline, as well as a service devoted to easing the transition from hospital to home.
We're transforming the treatment of vascular disease through next-generation devices, investments in research and development, and educational resources for healthcare professionals. Our products make better health outcomes possible every day - from industry-leading drug-eluting stents to minimally invasive treatments that help speed recovery with fewer complications.
Our Informatics business helps laboratories optimise data management, accessibility and integrity by providing labs with powerful and efficient web-based tools. We have almost 25 years of experience working with hundreds of laboratories in the public health, environmental, petrochemical, forensic, pharmaceutical, clinical and diagnostic sectors.
Neuromodulation tackles major clinical diseases including chronic pain and movement disorders through next-generation medical device advances. It's our mission to improve quality of life and help people live fuller, more active lives. Our investment in clinical trials redefines clinical pathways, putting entirely new treatment modalities into the hands of physicians with the latest wireless Apple programming platforms.
Abbott CRM strive to be the first choice for implantable device therapies in Heart Failure & Rhythm Management. We do this by working in partnership with healthcare providers, focusing on improving clinical outcomes and experience for patients.
Heart failure results in a large burden on the NHS, accounting for around one million inpatient beddays – 2% of the NHS total – and 5% of all emergency hospital admissions. Abbott’s heart failure portfolio includes the CardioMEMS implantable pressure sensor which aims to give physicians more information about patient heart function to prevent hospitalisations, and ventricular assist devices; blood pumps which take over the function of the heart in the most sick patients.
In the multifaceted landscape of cardiac electrophysiology, we strive to deliver improved patient outcomes by providing physicians, nurses and allied health professionals with innovative products and class leading clinical support and education. We produce the most comprehensive portfolio of diagnostic and radiofrequency ablation tools and offer a precise and flexible 3-D mapping platform, Ensite Precision, with which to treat the full spectrum of cardiac arrhythmias.
The Structural Heart division's mission is to help people live better lives through better health by restoring health and improving quality of life through the design and development of device and management solutions for the treatment of structural heart disease. We provide leading therapies in key segments - structural heart occlusion, surgical valves and transcatheter valve therapies.
