With NARD's contract synthesis, contract manufacture, and contract research services, we will help you overcome challenges in research and development.
We have proven experience of research and development in many fields, including pharmaceuticals, organic electroluminescent materials, organic semiconductors, and battery materials.
Molecular imaging aims to non-invasively visualize changes in groups of molecules (enzymes, genes, membranes, etc.) in vivo, to allow dynamic, quantatitive observation. A typical example of research techniques in the current field is the famous positron emission tomography (PET). Aside from this, techniques such as those involving fluorescence or near infra-red have also been developed.
Medicine, pharmaceuticals, cutting-edge engineering – these fields require complex collaboration, and promise great developments in the future, so NARD Industries is committed to providing support from the perspective of organic compound development.
Using the highly stable and modifiable Cypridina luciferase, a new immunoassay system, exhibiting 10 times the sensitivity of conventional methods, is under development. It shows promise for future use in the medical field.
We are undertaking synthesis of Cypridina luciferin for this bioluminescence.
This imaging technology based on Cypridina luciferin was developed by Yoshihiro Ohmiya's Cell Dynamics research group at the Cell Engineering Department of the Agency of Industrial Science and Technology.
