Fujifilm Focuses on Pharma

Abstract:
With film fading into the background, the company wants to apply its production expertise and nanotechnology techniques to drugmaking

What do drugs have in common with the $28 billion company's longtime business in photo film? More than you might think, according to Komori. Fujifilm wants to apply both its production expertise and nanotechnology techniques, originally developed for film production, to drugmaking. One example that predates the Toyama deal: an experimental cancer treatment that's made from microscopic particles like those in gelatin coatings on film and that's spread on skin like an ointment. Selling pharmaceuticals complements Fujifilm's existing businesses in gene analysis and imaging technology for ultrasound and X-ray machines, Komori told the Japanese financial daily Nikkei in early March.
