Top 100 Global Innovators

Nov 12 2015

Abbott was recently recognized as one of the world's most innovative companies, securing a spot on the Thomson Reuters 2015 Top 100 Global Innovators list for the third consecutive year.

This prestigious list, established in 2011, recognizes companies around the world for their outstanding commitment to innovation, the protection of ideas and the commercialization of inventions.

New for 2015 was a closer look at the San Francisco Bay Area, where Abbott’s vascular and diabetes care businesses were recognized as top innovators.

Recent examples of Abbott innovation:

  • Abbott's FreeStyle® Libre Flash Glucose Monitoring System, a revolutionary new glucose sensing technology launched in Europe for people with diabetes
  • Abbott's MitraClip® System, a first-of-its-kind, catheter-based device that has transformed the treatment of certain kinds of mitral regurgitation (MR) for people who are too frail for open-heart surgery or those who are not candidates for surgery, recently honored with a Chicago Innovation Award.
