Bioindustry Business

Biochemical, yeast, cells, genes, and beyond.
Paving path to future life science research with advanced genetic technology
born out of yeast research.

Oriental Yeast's core technologies in biotechnology involve in vitro, ex vivo and in vivo with molecular biology or genetic technology as the foundation. Due to the company history in yeast we have made efforts to create current business on the technologies originated from research of yeast. Oriental Yeast is one of the major providers of high valued products and services to aid drug development and life science research in Japan and overseas. We also offer various products and services to pharmaceutical companies such as laboratory animals, feed, culture substrates, safety and pharmacological/therapeutic testing and laboratory animal care. We have received high acclaim for our precision and reliability in this segment. In recent years we have addressed the need for additional support services for pharmaceutical research by offering genetically modified animals and genetic analysis services.

In addition, our biochemicals such as recombinant enzymes, recombinant human proteins, coenzymes, substrates, and antibodies are used around the world as raw materials in manufacturing of diagnostic reagents. Furthermore, some of our coenzymes (cofactors) are used in manufacturing of Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (API) through biocatalysis.
