You must have never seen these”old antiques” in the instrument industry!

On September 7, 2016, Japan’s largest analytical instrument exhibition JASIS 2016 was held at Makuhari International Exhibition Center in Tokyo. During the exhibition, the”Analytical Instruments and Scientific Instruments Heritage Certification Award” was awarded. This award aims to encourage Japan to create analytical technologies and analytical instruments that contribute greatly to national life, economy, education, and culture. And scientific equipment. So far, the award has been selected five times and is well known.

The editor of the instrument information network saw the”antique” of Japanese scientific instruments that has been condensed for decades or even centuries. Some of these instruments filled the world gap, and some instruments are still in normal operation.

The”old antiques” with stories displayed at JASIS 2016:

Japan SYSMEX (Hissen Mikang) Co., Ltd. CA-100

  CA-100 is the world’s first automatic hemagglutination analyzer to measure the whole process of coagulation reaction. It is a high-precision and multi-functional instrument equipment, the analyzer has a graphic display function and precision control. In recent years, the formation of blood clots has become a serious problem in the world. In the early 1980s, automatic hemagglutination analyzers were widely used, but their sensitivity and accuracy were low. CA-100 measures abnormal samples through coagulation reaction, thereby improving the sensitivity of the measurement. In addition, the measured results and curing curve can be seen during the measurement process. The coagulation analyzer is also equipped with the world’s first precise control function, thereby providing stable test results. At the same time, CA-100 won the first clinical laboratory equipment excellent design award. The design of CA-100 has become the industry standard. At present, the automatic blood coagulation measurement equipment of Hisense is sold to 190 countries and regions, and has achieved the world’s first share in the market.

Shimadzu Corporation LC-6A Series

The use of high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) has now become very common. HPLC technology is used in the pharmaceutical industry to evaluate the efficacy and safety of drugs. The LC-6A series was released in 1984. Its solvent delivery unit, autosampler, column thermostat, and detector adopt a modular combination. LC-6A series can provide automatic operation and automatic sample pretreatment for target components such as amino acids, sugars, organic acids, biological components, etc., thereby reducing sample analysis time. The high performance and scalability features of the LC-6A series are well received. To date, the LC-6A series has sold approximately 250,000 units. The LC-6A series has been used in a wide range of fields, such as medicine, chemical industry, food, environmental monitoring, clinical analysis, research and development and quality control, and has made great contributions to the development of various industries.

Japan Shimadzu Corporation UV-3000 dual wavelength dual beam spectrophotometry
  The UV-3000 dual-wavelength dual-beam spectrophotometer was released in June 1981. Prior to this, it was difficult to quickly perform quantitative analysis using a single-wavelength spectrophotometer, but the UV-3000 overcomes these shortcomings. UV-3000 is widely used in various fields, especially in the field of biochemistry. Although the UV-3000 was discontinued in January 1994, it is still used in many research institutions.

JASCO Corporation UVIDEC-100

  In 1973, JASCO launched UVIDEC-100, the world’s first high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) system variable wavelength ultraviolet detector, with excellent signal-to-noise ratio and baseline stability. Since then, the statement that”high performance liquid chromatography is less sensitive than gas chromatography” has been overturned, and UVIDEC-100 was discontinued in the early 1980s.

Tohoku University’s Taro Kotaro launched the world’s first thermal balance in 1915
It really feels kind of antique

TOC-500 analyzer launched by Shimadzu Corporation in 1984
It has been exported to Europe, the United States and Asian countries in large quantities, and its subsequent product sales have now reached 1,000

In the 1970s, the clinical examination business of hospitals grew rapidly, and at the same time, laboratories demanded the automation and miniaturization of equipment, so Hitachi High-Tech’s 705 automatic analysis device came into being.

The JSM-T20 walk-through electron microscope introduced by JEOL in 1981 is still partly in operation. In the past 20 years, the JSM-T20 model has not changed, but the number of units sold has reached 979 units/set.
The AC-1 atmospheric photoelectric spectroscopic device introduced by Japan Riken in 1986 is the world’s first device for measuring the work function and ionization potential in the air. But for unknown reasons, JASIS did not exhibit this equipment.
Optical microscope launched by Sakura Finetek in Japan
DKK-TOA company COM-30 high-performance pH measurement system and zero leakage AgCl reference electrode
Raba-3010 rapid blood analysis device launched by ARKRAY
