Social Contribution Activities
A scientific informational magazine covering the issues of clinical diagnosis, Modern Media, has been published every month by EIKEN CHEMICAL for over half a century starting from August, 1955. In our journal, scientists take up important themes of their expertise in diverse areas, such as medical examination of bacterial infectious diseases or food public hygiene, and write although in detail but in an easily to understand manner.
The journal is regularly read by people all over the country working in departments of clinical diagnosis in hospitals, in classes of microbiology and immunology at medical schools at universities, at national, prefectural, municipal and private research institutes specializing in microbiology and immunology, and at government agencies related to public hygiene.
