More than 120 years ago, 30-year-old Dr. Wallace C. Abbott, a practicing physician and pharmacy proprietor, founded the company that bears his name. Using the active part of a medicinal plant, known as the "alkaloid," he formed tiny pills, called "dosimetry granules," which provided more accurate and effective dosing for his patients than other treatments available at the time. The demand for these accurate granules soon far exceeded the needs of his own practice and, from these modest origins Abbott was born.
