Abbott Laboratories, a health care products and servicescompany headquartered in Chicago,is to set the world on fire at the coming China International Import Expo (CIIE). The company, participating in the globally influential exhibition and trade event for the first time, is to bring its A game in key businesses.

Covering an area of more than 600 square meters, the company’s booth will display innovative technologies in core areas of diagnostics, medical devices, nutrition and pharmaceuticals, many of which are making theirdebut in China.

For example, a second generation blood sugar sensor system and a corresponding mobile App is to be shownto visitors. With a sensor on patients’skin, the App can scan the sensor to read the real time blood glucose index as well as the historical data and change in the last 8 hours.

Dr. Xiang Yu, general manager of Abbott Diabetes Business Greater China and Emerging Asian Markets, said that since traditional blood glucose meters mostly use fingertip blood samples to measure blood sugar, and many patients only do blood sampling every few days, this device is more convenient and can avoid the danger brought by a lack of real-time monitoring.

According to Mr. Xiang, the exhibition scale and quality at CIIE is unprecedented in the company’s expo participation history. Although the coronavirus pandemic is still spreading, Abbott firmly confirmed its decision to participate.

In Mr. Xiang’s words, the determination of China in holding such an event physically amid the pandemic is really precious and he believes that the third expo will exert more influences.
