We meet emerging market needs by developing products based on our core cell culture medium and culture bag technologies.

FUKOKU has been manufacturing cell culture bag products since 2003. Products with superior safety and quality are required for use as the cell culture containers used during the cell culture process in cell therapy.
We continued to develop unique products in desire to bring closed systems to the cell culture process. In addition to cell culture bags, we also provide products such as cell culture media, cell culture systems, and stem cell conditioned media.
All of these products are produced in class 1000 or class 10000 cleanroom environments.

Cell culture bags

Developed for immune cell therapy research, the bags are also ideal for use as culture containers for lymphocytes and other floating cells. They are made from highly gas-permeable film for high-density cultures. The highly transparent film also allows for microscopic observation.
Closed system bags can be used to reduce the risk of contamination or infection by foreign substances, bacteria, and viruses.
They are made from material compliant with the Japanese Pharmacopoeia plastic medical and pharmaceutical product container testing methodology, as well as sterilized transfusion set standards.
We can also customize the shapes, tubes, and ports of single-use bags (gas barrier properties).
We also develop cell cryopreservation bags that offer superior anti-shock performance in extremely low temperatures (-196°C). Please contact us for details.

Cell culture media

FUKOKU develops and manufactures a range of cell culture media, and provides products with superior proliferative response suited to the type of cell and application.
We can provide filled cell culture bags for use in suspension cell culture applications. A closed cell culture can help reduce the risk of contamination or infection by foreign substances, bacteria, or viruses. We can also substitute the material for one with gas barrier properties for single-use bag applications, change the tube diameter/length, or customize port specifications (for example, changing the product from a needle-type product to a needleless product).

Cell culture supernatant fluid

In September 2020, we began manufacturing stem cell conditioned media and exosomes using original liquid media developed based on our liquid media evaluation technology.
conditioned media is a fluid that contains various proteins produced by cells during cell culturing. It contains abundant cell activation messengers called GFs (growth factors) and has gained recent attention for its use as an ingredient in aging care cosmetics.
In compliance with standards for cosmetics ingredients, FUKOKU uses culture media developed in-house to maximize cell proliferation in order to develop products that use supernatant produced by culturing cells in a manner that has been confirmed to be safe. These products are “human fat-derived stem cell acclimated culture solution” and “human fat interstitial cell exosomes.”

Human Adipose Stromal Cell Exosomes

Human Adipose Stromal Cell Exosomes

Exosomes are extracellular vesicles roughly 50 nm to 150 nm in size that are secreted from cells. They continue to attract attention in the regenerative medicine field due to the important role they play in transmitting information between cells. FUKOKU exosomes used in cosmetics have been verified to have a count of 50 billion per milliliter every one milliliter of suspension liquid, via exosome quantitative analysis using the ELISA method.

Negative virus tests

Cultured human adipose derived stem cells have been verified not to include the following viruses, including biological ingredient standard items.

  • HIV1.2 (AIDS)
  • HBV (hepatitis B virus)
  • HCV (hepatitis C virus)
  • FTA-ABS (syphilis test)
  • CMV (cytomegalovirus)
  • HTLV-1 (human T-lymphotropic virus type 1)
  • ParvoB19 (human parvovirus B19)
  • EB virus (infectious mononucleosis)
