The Cell Technology Group cooperates with approximately 2,200 dental clinics in Japan and operates the first domestic dental pulp cell storage project. The company works on practical application of regenerative medicine using stockpiled dental pulp cells. Nikon concluded a business alliance agreement for constructing a clinical master cell bank (MCB) for use of dental pulp cells in regenerative medicine. Nikon will provide funds to establish MCB, and Cell Technology will utilize a portion of these funds to outsource cell products to Nikon Cell Innovation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Nikon.
