Our wide range of innovative medical products combine advances in life science, polymer chemistry and mechanical engineering with our core separation technology based on functional materials such as membranes, nonwoven fabric and adsorbents. Building on our pioneering artificial kidney, therapeutic apheresis, leukocyte reduction, and virus removal technologies, we continue to develop new treatment methods for intractable diseases and chronic conditions. Through further innovation we are opening new horizons for medical treatment, expanding the possibilities of healthcare and contributing to a healthier and brighter tomorrow.
The Asahi Kasei Group contributes to life and living through innovative solutions based in chemistry and materials science, covering a diverse range of fields including fibers, chemicals, healthcare, electronics, housing and construction materials. As part of Asahi Kasei, we leverage the group synergy of fundamental technology, basic and applied research, manufacturing and quality management, and capital strength in the products and services we provide, building our business to meet evolving real-world needs. To establish new therapeutic areas and medical technologies born out of this approach, we work closely and steadfastly with all concerned parities, always maintaining full compliance with regulatory requirements. Our goal is to deliver Japan’s medical quality as the global standard.
Underpinning healthcare in Japan is a highly health-conscious public, a well-developed national health insurance system, and stringent standards of quality supported by manufacturing expertise and an artisan tradition. While an exceptionally high standard of healthcare is enjoyed in Japan, gaps in healthcare quality and access are common in many other parts of the world due to a variety of circumstances. Disparities also arise from differences in lifestyles and genetic predispositions. Clearly, the medical field faces diverse and complex challenges around the globe. We want to make the results of our long experience in the medical field available to all who find themselves in difficult circumstances. For a brighter future, we are using our original products, technologies and abundant business resources to bring new treatment possibilities to patients and their families, medical professionals, and researchers engaged in the fight against intractable diseases and chronic illnesses throughout the world.
