In the six months to the end of September 1995, the medical equipment and supplies division of Japanese pharmaceutical company Fujisawa was the only business sector showing growth compared with the previous year. Medical equipment turnover rose 20% to ¥45 million ($9 million). This represents around 1% of Fujisawa's total sales of Yen106,367 million, which were down 10%. The company attributes the growth in medical equipment sales partly to reagents which are produced by US company PharMingen.
