For enhancement of the base to promote the creation of new industries, it has recently opened a shared office floor on the fifth floor of LSB, as a part of its Nihonbashi life science innovation promotion project in collaboration with Life Science Innovation Network Japan Inc. (LINK-J).

In recognition of our achievements as a healthcare appliance manufacturer by being ISO 13485 certified with Class II medical devices manufacturing and retails license *2, we're honored to receive an offer to move into this base. We will utilize this base to collect information related to life science, to plan the ecosystem development that the Nihonbashi life science project seeks, and to look for publicity and promote recruitment activities of our company.
