Through the use of measurement, control, information technology and life science, radically improve productivity across the entire value chain, from basic research to logistics and services.
Model of our solution
Doted lines indicate Solutions under development.
We have 30 years of experience in this life science field and will respond to customer's problem solving with cutting-edge solutions.
YOKOGAWA is working on the development of single cell mass spectrometry and single cell gene analysis. In order to analyze one cell with high sensitivity, we are developing a method of collecting target cells while keeping position information under observing cells with confocal scanner.
YOKOGAWA aims to cost reductions and improve safety by providing a structure and data-management platform for unified management of information related to cellular and regenerative therapies.
Yokogawa is contributing to the development of the pharmaceutical industry based on its performance of introducing over 1,000 systems in the areas of drug substances, pharmaceutical products, and biotechnology.
In addition to daily improvement cycles, Yokogawa will use IIoT to support create environments that do not cause defects and that are designed to completely reduce losses.
Life Business Vision
In the Life organization, we established the business vision "We will lead the world in advancing Bio Industrial Autonomy and contribute to a future embracing global harmony" with the aim of clarifying future developments of the business, its scope and direction. In this vision, we have targeted the "Pharmaceutical, Food, Beverage & Biotech" sectors and aim to further expand our business, centering on theseindustries, by taking advantage of our strengths in "Measurement, Imaging, Analysis, Diagnosis, Integration" and Yokogawa core technologies.
Four business segments aiming to realize BIA
By contributing to the development of measurement and analysis technologies, we will solve problems that limit research progress and create a world where scientists can concentrate on science.
Using real-time monitoring and software innovations, we will create a virtual world of "Digital Twin" where experimental simulations are leveraged to realize precision predictive control
We analyze and control the information obtained from all manufacturing activities and solve issues related to raw material quality, facility degradation, transmission of technology, and production processes to improve work environment and worker safety.
Food & Beverage
In addition to improving optimal and efficient automatic processes based on demand forecasting, we will assist with quality improvements that include taste attributes, and promote autonomous operation that grows independent of human intervention.
Life Business Headquarters’ contribution towards the fight against Novel Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19)
Yokogawa established the Life Business Headquarters with the goal of promoting well-being for all. In addition to engaging in our existing life science and manufacturing solutions businesses targeting the pharmaceutical and food industries, the headquarters works to develop new products and services and provides one-stop solutions that revolutionize productivity throughout the pharmaceutical and food industry value chain, from basic research to manufacturing, logistics, and services.
Yokogawa has more than 30 years’ experience in the life science field. The CSU spinning disk confocal scanner series is our core strength, and over 3,000 units have been sold globally. Other products, including a live cell imaging system, a high-content analysis system and single cell analysis solution also support leading life science studies. In the field of manufacturing solutions, over 1,000 Yokogawa manufacturing, production, and quality management systems and control systems have been introduced in the pharmaceutical industry.
In response to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), Yokogawa has been taking various measures to prevent transmission of the virus while working to minimize the impact on customers. We are also contributing to the fight against COVID-19 by collaborating with research institutes globally and supporting research to develop new medication or vaccines. Yokogawa will continue to work with customers and business partners in an effort to resolve the crisis society is facing.

In August 2017, Yokogawa announced its long-term sustainability goals (Three Goals) for the year 2050. Yokogawa established these goals to contribute to achieving Net-zero emissions, Circular economy and Well-being. In April 2018, Yokogawa strengthened the business structure of its life business with the aim of achieving one of these goals, well-being.
Achieve a Well-being
- With the world’s population aging, the importance of the pharmaceutical and food industries to ensure that people can live safe and secure lives with peace of mind is growing.
- With the world’s population increasing and aging in major countries including emerging countries, it will certainly become more difficult to stably supply the necessary medical care and safe food to many people.
- In the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by the United Nations in 2015, well-being is defined as a “state of physical, mental and social well being.” Yokogawa supports people’s health and prosperity, as well as a safe and comfortable workplace, in a wide range of fields, such as life sciences and drug discovery.
Establish a life business
- Expand business based on existing pharmaceutical/food industry businesses and new technologies and products that are under development.
- Through the use of measurement, control, and information technology, radically improve productivity across the entire value chain, from basic research to logistics and services.

Uniformizer, a new flat-top beam shaper for CSU-W1 & Introduction to new approach for single cell analysis
Presenter: Naoki Ando: Product specialist of CSU, Masahiro Kajita: Project manager of “Single Cellome”
Yokogawa continues to make improvements to provide the best products for biology researchers. So far, CSU has fulfilled the researchers' wish to take images fast, wide, clear and in super-resolution. This time, we will introduce the new option “Uniformizer” of our product “CSU-W1”. This unit uniformizes the laser illumination and enables quantitative imaging. This provides a large seamless montage image between each field. Furthermore, Yokogawa also takes new challenge for the next field, which is single cell analysis. As a trial, it had prototyped automated single cell sampling system, and it has possible to investigate the molecular characterization of each single cell. This tech talk will introduce 1) ”Uniformizer” and 2) new approach for single cell analysis, which could perform with confocal microscopy.
