About Asahi Kasei Medical

Thriving Pioneers of Medical Devices and Medical Materials

Asahi Kasei Medical has achieved business growth by applying and developing the technological expertise of the Asahi Kasei Group in the fiber and chemical fields and leveraging the advantages of their hollow-fiber membrane, nonwoven fabric and biocompatible material technologies.

While reconfiguring our organization to optimally adapt to changes in the market environment, we maintain top shares in all our market areas — hemodialysis, therapeutic apheresis, transfusion therapy, and virus removal for biotherapeutic products — and continue to grow as a pioneer in blood-related medical fields.
