The Japan Association of Clinical Reagents Industries (JACRI) is an industry association composed of approximately 130 clinical reagents companies, with the goal of working for the healthy development of the industry by providing medical institutions and other entities with superior in vitro diagnostic reagents, instruments for clinical laboratory testing, and other related products; contributing to the maintenance and advancement of Japanese public health; improving welfare; and also providing diagnostic reagents for veterinary use.
