Research Facts
Ferrosyn is a product that treats anemia caused by iron-deficiency; it was marketed by Ingram & Bell as a hematinic formula capable of increasing hemoglobin in the blood without increasing blood sugar, making it safe for diabetics.
Ingram & Bell Limited was a medical supply company first established in Toronto in 1905; the company became a Canadian leader in the distribution of medical products; their wide selection included equipment, surgical tools, and pharmaceuticals; as the company grew, they established branches in Montreal, Winnipeg, Calgary, and Vancouver; became Ingram & Bell Inc. and 49% owned by MDS in 1986; MDS acquired 100% in 1993; became Source Medical Corporation after merger with Allegiance Healthcare Canada Inc. in 1997; acquired by Cardinal Health Canada Inc. in 2005.
The D in diamond symbol and date codes embossed on the bottom indicates the bottle itself was made by Canadian glass manufacturer Dominion Glass Company in the Bramalea, Ontario factory established in 1960s; the progressive line system month code and “6” year code, along with Ingram & Bell logo on product label, signify it was produced in 1966

Research Facts
Ferrobex is a product that treats anemia caused by iron-deficiency, as well as other conditions involving lack of iron; its main ingredient is ferrous gluconate and it was marketed by Ingram & Bell as a treatment for all types of anemia; unlike Ingram & Bell’s similar product Ferrosyn, the tablets contain sugars and are also sugar coated, making them unsuitable for diabetics
