of medical products (in-vitro diagnostic reagents) at its Satte Plant
On August 21, 2012, Toppan Printing Co., Ltd. (hereafter Toppan Printing; head office: Chiyoda Ward, Tokyo; President & Representative Director: Shingo Kaneko) obtained a license for the manufacture of medical products (in-vitro diagnostic reagents) at the Satte Plant (Satte, Saitama Prefecture) of Toppan Plastic Co., Ltd. (head office: Taito Ward, Tokyo; President & Representative Director: Kiyoshi Sawada), a packaging-related subsidiary of Toppan Printing.
In-vitro diagnostic reagents are medical products used for the diagnosis of disease that are not used directly on humans or animals. Specifically, they include testing reagents used in hospitals. The manufacture of in-vitro diagnostic reagents requires a license to carry out the manufacture of medical products (in-vitro diagnostic reagents) from the prefectural governor.
Toppan Printing has previously been strongly involved in the business of packaging for the medical and pharmaceutical sectors, including producing packaging for medical products, and sealing, packaging and storing medical devices based on a license for the manufacture of medical devices (packaging/display/storage) that was obtained in January 2012 at the Ranzan Plant (Hiki District, Saitama Prefecture) of Toppan Packaging Service Co., Ltd. (head office: Taito Ward, Tokyo; President & Representative Director: Akihiro Taguchi).
By obtaining this license, it has become possible for the Satte Plant to provide a complete service from the manufacture to the filling, sealing and storage of in-vitro diagnostic reagents in a high-security, clean production environment.
Toppan Printing will expand its business for filling products into their packaging, which it already provides for items such as beverages and foods, to the medical products sector, and will aim to provide total packaging solutions to manufacturers of medical goods.
The acquisition of this license will be presented in the Toppan booth at Tokyo Pack 2012, which will be held at the Tokyo Big Sight exhibition center from Tuesday October 2 to Friday October 5, 2012.
