From scientific imaging and DNA isolation to skincare and supplements.
Fujifilm's life science technologies help doctors and researchers study DNA and other molecules of life, leading to deeper understanding and medical progress. We are also applying our technology to develop innovative cosmetics and nutritional supplements.
We provide technology that lets researchers delve into the secrets of life. For example, our automated nucleic acid isolation systems can isolate DNA in just minutes, saving time in medical and agricultural applications. Our scientific imaging systems can analyze proteins for biological research and food safety.
At Fujifilm we like to see smiling faces — not only in photographs but also in real life. A primary raw material of photographic film is made of collagen, which is also the main protein in human skin. Photographs fade because of oxidation, a process that also causes skin aging. Now we have developed a line of unique skincare products that combine our expertise in collagen processing, oxidation prevention and ultrafine emulsion technology. These advanced products are spearheading our entry into preventive healthcare.
In 2008, Toyama Chemical, a major pharmaceutical developer, became a Fujifilm group company. This acquisition gives Fujifilm the opportunity to collaborate on and accelerate the discovery of new drugs. Toyama Chemical's strong research & development capabilities will benefit from synergy with Fujifilm's vast portfolio of unique materials and technologies, supported by a global network and strong financial foundation. For example, a photographic dye originally synthesized by Fujifilm shows potential as an antitumor drug.
