Mission/Background :
We have engaged in producing of chemical products, primarily research-use reagents, since our founding. In addition, we supply high-quality reagents and analytical instruments in Japan or elsewhere in the world in recent years. “Contribute to society by creating valuable technological knowledge, valuable products, and by providing valuable services.” is our management principle. We focus on the value we can offer to and share with researchers.

Technology & Business
We are developing our own liposome technologies and provide products and contractive service such as, manufacturing, trial study, and quality examination.

Liposomes are artificially prepared minute capsules made of lipid-bilayer, the structure of phospholipids. We have a technique to label target recognition probes (antibodies, sugar chains, peptides, etc) on the surface of the liposomes and a technique to encapsulate various substances into the vesicles.
The liposomes can hereby deliver their components into a specific region efficiently in vivo. In addition, the study to control functionality of liposomes by changing lipid composition is done.

Basing on these know-how, we produce and supply the active-targeting liposome reagent "GLYCOLIPO" for in vivo imaging and DDS in experimental use. Again, we accept wide requests about liposome for example, manufacturing custom-ordered liposomes beyond the standard of "GLYCOLIPO".
