WAKUNAGA Biotech Research and Development

We have been ahead of our time and active in the research & development in the field of biotechnology.

It was the first success in the world to produce the intestinal hormone “secretin” by using biotechnology in 1981. Since then our top-level R&D biotech team has achieved a lot of excellent results.


Now we develop and manufacture unique and state-of-the-art biotechnology products. One is the HLA related reagent series “WAKFlow®” that are officially adopted by Japan Marrow Donor Program.
