SANYO Medical (Acquired by Panasonic) began manufacturing equipment for medical applications in 1974. The highlights of our record so far include the world's first -152°C ultralow temperature freezer in 1991, followed in 1993 by the release of a full range of refrigerators and freezers using our CFC- free refrigerant, a breakthrough achieved in cooperation with industry-leader ICI Chemicals & Polymers Ltd. Our work is inspired by the concept Human-Oriented Design. We design and manufacture our own compressors, then match them with our electronics technologies to create unrivaled products. Performance, durability and speedy maintenance are our hallmarks. SANYO Research & Medical Equipment is ready for the challenges of the 21st century now, and you can be sure that we will continue to support advances in physiology, genetics, virology, pharmacology, and leading-edge biotechnology fields.
