Mission/Background :
We strive to become more environment-friendly, to become an enterprise worthy of ever-greater trust by our customers. Since its foundation, Tamagawa Seiki has taken up the challenge of angular precision for control equipment, such as high-precision sensors, motors and gyros, and successfully delivered such equipment to its customers. In 2003, we began R&D for the magnetic nanoparticles in cooperation with Tokyo Institute of Technology.

Technology & Business
We are manufacturing and selling the high-performance magnetic nanoparticles (FG beads) used for drug discovery research.
FG beads are used as matrices for affinity purification, and have excellent features as follows, (1) high dispersibility, enabling efficient binding, (2) extremely low level of non-specific protein adsorption, (3) high resistance to organic solvents, enabling various kinds of ligands to be immobilized. One-step purification of drug target protein become possible by the FG beads.
We are also providing various services concerning target protein identification.
