PROVIDING WORLD-CLASS PRODUCTS Abbott offers an array of leading products in Canada to help people live healthier, fuller lives. Diagnostic Instruments and Tests Diagnostic testing is a compass, providing information that helps in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of a range of health conditions. Our medical diagnostic instruments and tests are used worldwide in hospitals, reference labs and blood banks to diagnose serious health issues, such as infectious diseases, cancer, diabetes and genetic conditions.

And our point-of-care diagnostic technologies bring diagnostics directly to patients by performing many of the most commonly ordered blood tests at the bedside, using a few drops of blood.
