Fujifilm, the parent company of film and PACS company Fujifilm Medical, bought DRL in October 2006 from Japanese drug maker Daiichi Pharmaceutical. The division develops and manufactures radiopharmaceuticals used in nuclear medicine procedures in Japan.
DRL had revenues of 17.22 billion yen ($142.7 million) for its fiscal year ended March 31, 2006, with 420 employees. Its products include radiopharmaceuticals for brain, cardiac, and bone diagnostic procedures, as well as therapeutic agents for thyroid disease.
In announcing the name change, Fuji said the new identity indicates the division's status as a member of the Fuji group of companies. Fuji said that Fujifilm RI Pharma will play an important role in the company's expansion in the medical business, which Fuji regards as one of its most important fields.
