At Abbott, we believe people with diabetes should have the freedom to enjoy vigorous, active lives. That’s why we’re focused on helping our patients manage their diabetes more effectively and comfortably with easy-to-use products that provide fast and accurate data to ultimately drive better informed decisions.

Our Diabetes Care facility, located in the picturesque county of Donegal, is a center of excellence for blood glucose monitoring. We solely manufacture and distribute the worldwide supply of Abbotts’ FreeStyle and FreeStyle Lite brands of blood glucose test strips, which are used in conjunction with FreeStyle blood glucose monitoring meters.

The site researches and develops next generation technology, processes and materials to progress coulometric monitoring to the highest level and our new flash glucose monitoring technology is revolutionizing the way people manage their diabetes.

We take great pride in our work and our mantra of “Excellence in everything we do” is key to our success. Our track record of excellence speaks for itself having most recently been named the Quality Plant of the Year for Abbott Medical Devices and in having achieved Class A accreditation in record breaking time.


Established in 2006, Abbott’s diabetes business in Ireland has become the sole manufacturer of the FreeStyle range of diagnostic test strips, meeting the rapid growth in demand for diabetes care due to the increased incidence and detection of diabetes worldwide.


The facility manufactures test strips that are used in Abbott’s FreeStyle blood glucose monitoring meters. These include:
