August 2018 A safe, reliable — and, most importantly, healthy — blood supply. It's not something most people spend much time thinking about. That is, until they need it. That's not the case at Abbott, where it's always top of mind for our Diagnostics team. Our virus hunters understand the only way to help meet that need is to never stop searching for strains that can contaminate the blood supply during blood donation. And then to develop tests that detect new variations of those bugs, all with the goal of helping get people back on the road to their healthiest lives as quickly as possible.
