Circulating blood cells are too small to be seen with the naked eye. Sysmex helps people remain healthy through its technologies for measuring these blood cells, which have a diameter of around 2 micrometers. (One micrometer is one-millionth of a meter, or 0.001 millimeters.)

Research and Development

About Blood

Nearly 100 years before automation in the field of hematology, healthcare professionals used microscopes to measure and count the number of blood cells. In 1963, Sysmex became the first company in Japan to achieve automation in hematology. Now, we have developed technology that allows for the automated counting of around 100,000 blood cells per second with higher testing precision and efficiency.

Disease states differ by person, so it is understood that the same treatment method may not be appropriate even for people with the same disease. In recent years, progress in genetic analysis technology has made it possible to determine optimal treatment methods for individual patients. Selecting the optimal treatment method can help reduce the physical burden on patients, as well as curtail medical expenses.
