Abbott works for the people they serve in their pursuit of healthy lives. This has been the way of Abbott for more than a century—passionately and thoughtfully translating science into lasting contributions to health.

Abbott products encircle life, from newborns to aging adults, from nutrition and diagnostics through medical care and pharmaceutical therapy.

  • Abbott advances leading-edge science and technologies that hold the potential for significant improvements to health and to the practice of healthcare.
  • Abbott values diversity—that of products, technologies, markets and people—and believe that diverse perspectives combined with shared goals inspire new ideas and better ways of addressing changing health needs.
  • Abbott strives to earn the trust of those they serve by committing to the highest standards of quality, excellence in personal relationships, and behavior characterized by honesty, fairness and integrity.
  • Abbott sustains success—by staying true to the key tenets upon which the company was founded over a century ago: innovative care and a desire to make a meaningful difference in all that we do.

The promise of our company is in the promise that our work holds for health and life.

In the past the Chicago Tokyo Group managed MediSense Japan K.K.. Medisense Japan was a wholly owned subsidiary of MediSense, Inc. a US company which Abbott later acquired in 1996. MediSense Japan was originally established in order to spin this business off from Baxter Ltd. which had introduced MediSense blood glucose monitoring products in Japan originally. We then introduced several generations of MediSense products and sold these directly through our own sales force and, also in parallel, through a co-marketing arrangement with Shionogi Pharmaceutical. After our parent was acquired by Abbott, MediSense Japan continued to operate independently for some time but was finally absorbed by Dainabot.
