INDICATE Building Bridges with the Medical Device Industry


INnovative Diagnostic Imaging Capabilities Adoption TEnd-users delivers innovative imaging technology to your doorstep.

Micron is contributing to healthcare as a whole by approaching it from both diagnostic and therapeutic aspects.

We adopt, introduce, and propose image analysis technologies with advanced technology, such as those equipped with artificial intelligence (AI).

We act as a bridge between companies that want to introduce innovative software as medical device (SaMD) and companies which are interested in them.





Seeds – The introduction of diagnostic technologies (those under consideration for introduction in Japan)

Introducing new and unique diagnostic technologies. We assist in matching interested pharmaceutical companies and medical device manufacturers with companies which have these technologies.
