Promoting R&D Activities through Open Innovation
Sysmex embraces open innovation.
Feature of our open innovation is by combining technology and knowledge universities and research institutes has and our technology and knowledge. We are promoting activities that create new clinical value efficiently. To accelerate such activities, we are inviting researchers from Japan and overseas to Technopark and providing a venue for them to collaborate with our researchers.
Open Innovation Lab
We are establishing the Sysmex Open Innovation Lab (SOLA) as a venue for generating new ideas.
This area is equipped with state-of-the-art high-performance analytical instruments.
These can be used to perform leading-edge research related to genes, cells and proteins.
- Mass Spectrometer
- Imaging Flow Cytometer
- Next-generation Sequencer
- Assay Robot System
This area is equipped with Sysmex’s leading-edge diagnostic instruments.
This area can be used to develop reagents, using the biomarkers possessed by individual organizations for use with Sysmex instruments.
- Automated Hematology Analyzer
- Ultrasensitive Immunoassay System
- Automated Pretreatment System
for Flow Cytometer
This area has been set up as an environment for accessing the FOCUS supercomputer.
Here, analysis of “medical big data” can be performed to create new testing value and sophisticated simulations used to accurately determine disease states.
- Note: The FOCUS supercomputer, employed by the Foundation for Computational Science (FOCUS), is the only public supercomputer in Japan dedicated to industrial use.
This area is designed to encourage researchers from inside and outside the Company to interact freely.
By stimulating communication, we aim to foster the generation of new concepts and creative ideas.
