About Japan Scientific Instruments Association

The Japan Scientific Instruments Association (JSIA) is a national organization which consists of firms engaged in the manufacture, sale and related businesses of scientific instruments in Japan. The JSIA was established in December 1945 shortly after the end of World War II, with only 46 member firms aiming at the progress and development of science and technology in Japan. The organization has expanded since its inauguration, and the number of members increased to 24 times at the time of establishment.

Member firms have been supporting the foundation of technological innovation in Japan and contributing to industrial development as well as economic growth through improvement of quality and popularization of scientific instruments in a wide range of fields covering general purpose equipment, analytical instruments, environmental measurement equipment, laboratory furniture, meteorological equipment and biotechnology instruments. At the same time, they have been deeply involved in the daily lives of the people through the application of technologies such as environmental measurement.
