Who we are
Your link between patient and diagnosis
Behind every sample, tissue block and slide, lies a unique story. That of a person – young or old, woman or man, grandmother or son – who’s anxiously awaiting their diagnosis. Because when you’re waiting for results, every day, hour, and minute counts.
We specialise in medical development since 1596, with our expertise from the first-ever Japanese microscope in 1871, to being the original manufacturer of Tissue-Tek® technology and beyond.
