From plastic to Microresico® , in pursuit of the "next"
It was when Knowledge Cluster Initiative of MEXT(*) unfolded in Toyama prefectural government that various plastic processing technologies of Richell were presented and introduced to the Medical Bio-Cluster program lead by Toyama New Industry Organization.
Ever since the start of business in 1956, Richell consistently strived to deliver products that delight customers in everyday life, industry or the whole society while accumulating various technologies, know-how, and experience in the course. So when those techlogies met Biosicence, Richell decided to develop Micro Array Chips to see how it may contribute to this industry.
In 2003, Richell introduced Microresico®, a unique resin composed of PP and TPE and succeeded in manufacturing micro size well chips. This was after the trial and error of tooling technology and processing, which was not in vain, as Richell further succeeded in fabricating micro size channels or micro bonded structures in 2006, prompting Richell to work for this industry head-on by establishing the R&D Center.
The current level of advancement would not have been possible had Richell worked alone. It was the result of collaboration with government and academia such as Toyama New Industry Organization, Toyama Industrial Technology Center, Medical and Engineering Faculties of Toyama University, to name a few. By continuing to work together, we at Richell are determined to pursue what we can do to delight customers through our technologies.
