Resumption of Delivery of Bioresources
Due to the devastating earthquake and tsunami occurred on March 11 2011, the activity in our center was severely affected. Delivery of bioresources to all customers was forced to be suspended. Since then, we have been making every efforts to recover from this disaster. We are very glad to announce that delivery of bioresources will resume during this week starting on March 28 and now accept orders by the ordinary procedures. We are very pleased to inform you that no bioresources in our center have been damaged or lost by the earthquake. You can order any bioresources on our catalogue and/or web catalogue as before. We are looking forward to receiving your request.

The transportation system in Japan is still disturbed. Therefore, please understand that some delivery may be delayed to certain extent or even not possible all. In addition, Tokyo Electric Power Company has been carrying out the planned rolling blackouts, 3 hours per day in chosen areas of Kanto to maintain stable supply of electricity and to avoid unexpected total power failure. If our center is chosen in this black out, some delay in delivery may occur. Thank you very much for your understanding and patience.
