Research Facts
In 1888 at the age of 30, Dr. Wallace C. Abbott, an 1885 graduate of the University of Michigan, founded the Abbott Alkaloidal Company. At the time he was a practicing physician and owned a drug store. His innovation was the use of the active - or alkaloid - part of a medicinal plant that he formed into tiny pills which he called “dosimetric granules.” This was successful since it allowed more consistent and effective dosages for patients than other treatments available at the time. The demand for these accurate granules soon far exceeded the needs of his own practice and, from these modest origins, was born Abbott, one of the world's most broad-based health care companies and a global leader in the discovery, development and manufacture of products that span the continuum of care. In 1915 The Abbott Alkaloidal Company's name is changed to Abbott Laboratories to reflect the company's growing research orientation and move to synthetic compounds.
