Abbott Point of Care is a global leader in with-patient testing solutions that are intuitive, reliable, and cost-effective. As part of Abbott’s commitment to helping people live fuller, healthier lives through our innovative products, Abbott sponsors the Abbott World Marathon Majors, a series of six of the largest and most renowned marathons in the world where Abbott's portable i-STAT® System is used in medical tents and along the race courses to enpower the marathon medical staff to treat marathoners on site by quickly providing vital information needed to expedite care. The i-STAT System is an advanced, handheld blood analyzer that provides lab-quality results for the most commonly ordered tests within minutes.
As title sponsor of the Abbott World Marathon Majors and partner of the Boston Marathon in 2017, Abbott supplied 20 i-STAT System, handheld blood analyzers to the marathon medical tents. The i-STAT, which performs commonly ordered blood tests within minutes, empowered the Boston Marathon medical staff with information to check heart function or monitor physical exertion and administer needed care on site.
