The Abbott product portfolio produced in Sligo has developed consistently over the years. We manufacture reagents that are used for the diagnostic analysis and screening of numerous diseases and conditions with a focus on infectious diseases and cancer. Our infectious disease assays detect Hepatitis B and the Rubella and Cytomegaloviruses associated with congenital disorders. Our oncology assays are used to measure levels of key blood proteins indicative for cancer of the prostate and liver as well as a variety of other tumours.
We also manufacture instrument accessory reagents, the materials required for day-to-day operation of Abbott’s diagnostic instruments. This includes line diluents and wash buffers that are used in hospital and clinical laboratories all over the world.
ADD Sligo is proud to be a centre for manufacture of reagents and accessories for ADD's new Alinity series of platforms, supporting immunoassay, transfusion and haematology applications.
