Jena -- Analytik Jena AG has delivered two high quality analysis measuring instruments to a health facility in the Japanese province Miyagi and installed them on site. The Public Health Society in the provincial capital of Sendai in Northeast Japan will benefit from the donation of the device. Similar to the neighboring region Fukushima, the Miyagi province is still particularly affected by the devastating destruction today. During previous months, the Japanese subsidiary of the Jena manufacturer of analytic measuring technology has already repaired several instruments in facilities that were damaged during the earthquake free of charge.
Analytik Jena has been present in the Japanese market with its subsidiary Analytik Jena Japan Co., Ltd. for five years. Also at the company premises in Yokohama, south of Tokyo, the earthquake was clearly felt. 'Offering help for the affected regions in an extreme situation like this was not a question for Analytik Jena', said Klaus Berka, chair of the board of Analytik Jena AG. Directly after the earthquake, the company immediately offered its customers to repair damaged analysis instruments free of charge.
The Public Health Society, a public institution for health education and environmental protection, had lost several analysis instruments in its laboratories during the catastrophe. Analytik Jena consequently delivered a ZEEnit700 atomic absorption spectrometer and a multi N/C 3100 TOC analyzer to Sendai to help rebuild the premises of the health authority and restore the normal working environment of this institution. Analytik Jena employees have now installed and commissioned the instruments in Japan.
After the installation was complete and the Japanese specialists had been briefed, Analytik Jena Japan Co., Ltd. ceremonially received an official certificate of appreciation from the Public Health Society for the valuable support.
