Nikon Healthcare Business contributes to improving the quality of life for people everywhere.
Microscope Solutions supports live cell observation in biological science and medical research. It contributes to the discovery of new knowledge by using super-resolution microscope N-SIM S for observing live cell structure and movement at the nano scale.
Cell Solutions (regenerative medicine/drug discovery support) contributes to the culturing process of cells. A cell culture observation system called BioStation CT which evaluates cell quality, contributes to medical treatment using cells through regenerative medicine cell processing, and discovering new drugs through drug discovery support assay (analysis and evaluation).
Ophthalmology Solutions supports retinal imaging diagnosis with an ultra-widefield imaging device. It can lead to earlier diagnosis and treatment of eye problems.
The earlier diagnosis and treatment of systemic disease such as diabetes is also made possible.
These three solutions are all intended to contribute to a better quality of life.
