About us

Dojindo has developed the WST method

WST (water-soluble Tetrazolium) was developed by DOJINDO LABORATORIES in 1990s and is now used worldwide as one of the methods for cell proliferation/cytotoxicity assay. Using this WST method, DOJINDO LABORATORIES developed and commercialized the CCK-8 (Cell Counting Kit-8) with improved sensitivity. The CCK-8 has been used in an uncountable number of published papers worldwide. 


About Dojindo Laboratories

DOJINDO LABORATORIES was founded by Dr. Keihei Ueno, a well-known researcher in chelating chemistry. DOJINDO LABORATORIES was the first Japanese company to commercialize EDTA (ethylenediamine tetraacetic acid) in 1951. Since then, DOJINDO LABORATORIES has been producing reagents to support the progress of scientific research. Our mission is to develop innovative tools for life science research. DOJINDO LABORATORIES strives to contribute to the improvement of quality of life through scientific findings and the development of new medicines.


Global Business Development

Since the latter 1970's, DOJINDO LABORATORIES have been at the forefront of technological innovations and developed a number of analytical reagents to support the progress of scientific and technological research. Today, these products are widely used by many cutting-edged research organizations, such as universities, medical institutions, research institutes, factories and so forth.


In order to bring Doijndo’s high quality reagents in worldwide research market, we have been developing global business. Dojindo Molecular Technologies, Inc. (DMT) was established in the U.S. as a subsidiary of DOJINDO LABORATORIES in 1996. DMT is located that is near the National Institutes of Health (NIH). In 2001, DOJINDO LABORATORIES EUROPE OFFICE in Amsterdam, Netherlands was opened and it was relocated our Europe office to Munich, Germany in 2008. We also established the Shanghai office in 2003 and the Beijing office in 2008, to advance our technical assistance and marketing in China. We will continue to contribute to worldwide research market through innovative products and high-quality services.
