The future to open up through live cell imaging

The recent development of human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs) has made it possible to use human-derived cells, which were traditionally difficult to handle, in vitro. These cells are expected to be employed in a variety of applications, including regenerative medicine and drug discovery research. As their use becomes increasingly popular and demand for hPSC continues to rise, best practices in cell culture, and maintenance and evaluation of the quality of cultured cells are becoming important issues.

In this field, we provide technologies, products and services that support problem-solving and research/product development through cell observation and evaluation technology, utilizing our experience cultivated over many years.

Since Nikon released its first microscope in 1925, we have been focusing on observing the microscopic world. And now, through development of a cell observation device and image analysis technology, we are extending the possibilities of live cell imaging and provide Nikon products for researchers around the world.

Nikon is committed to product development and business solutions specialized for "cell observation and evaluation" as a frontrunner.

Offering Open Innovation style customized services

Nikon provides a comprehensive cell imaging solution that includes hardware devices, image analysis, and data evaluation combined with consultation to solve your imaging and cell culture problems. These custom solutions are designed by a team of imaging experts with decades of combined experience at a world-leading imaging company. Our team can customize imaging algorithms suited for your specific cell types and culture methods, thereby creating a specialized system to evaluate cell quality using your own quality standards.

Nikon solves customers' challenging issues in three different cell fields.

Three fields are cell quality evaluation, drug discovery support assay and a cell sorting platform. We provide the best solutions to complex issues in each of these areas.
