Sales Pitch

Various contract services
All-ingredient fingerprint analysis®
This method is based on metabolome analysis which is the latest scientific analysis method that simultaneously detects and digitizes various ingredients related to nutrition, color, taste, texture, aroma, functionality, etc., contained in foods, beverages, agriculture/forestry/fishery products, and plant-derived materials. It shows quantitative changes and qualitative distributions of ingredients resulting from differences in the processing method, storage method, storage period, producing area, production method, etc. By using the ingredient data, we can characterize the requested product distinctively like a human fingerprint.
Transformation

Our transformation service has been immensely popular. We have transformed mainly rice, Micro-Tom, and Arabidopsis thaliana, as well as various other plants. By simply sending the plasmid, you will receive transformants quickly and reliably.
Metabolome analysis
In our metabolome analysis service, we perform a comprehensive analysis of metabolites and compare the quantities of ingredients. It allows us to detect differences between samples, quantify the target components such as amino acids, and to estimate and predict the molecular formulas and structures of substances that differ in amount between samples. It has been conducted on Arabidopsis, rice, tomatoes, and various other plant samples. Please select the desired menu item based on your purpose.
