artience Co., Ltd. (President and Representative Director Satoru Takashima, Chuo-ku, Tokyo) has developed a functional polymer for in-vitro diagnostics "Sciforiem™ PL 1000 Series" that has been adopted by EIKEN CHEMICAL CO.,LTD., a comprehensive manufacturer of in-vitro diagnostic reagents.

In vitro diagnostics are medicines intended to be used to diagnose diseases that are not used directly on the human or animal body. Samples such as blood, saliva, and urine are used to perform the test. There is a need for faster and more accurate diagnosis with a smaller amount of sample.

The Sciforiem™ PL 1000 Series, which has been adopted by EIKEN CHEMICAL, is a synthetic polymer that does not use animal-derived raw materials by applying artience group 's proprietary polymer design and dispersion technologies. By coating the substrate used to detect antigen-antibody reactions and adding it to reaction reagents, it suppresses non-specific adsorption of target substances, increases detection sensitivity, and stabilizes the structure of proteins. Taking advantage of these functions, it can be used in a variety of applications, such as blocking agents and protein stabilizers for in vitro diagnostics, as well as additives for reagents in research fields that handle biomolecules.
This time, it was evaluated for its higher stability and superior functionality than conventional products, and it was adopted.
