Company Overview

Our Mission

We are committed to bringing life science technologies from around the world into the hands of every researcher. We capitalize on our technical knowledge and multi-national collaborations to add value at multiple stages of the research process to accelerate discovery and develop new technologies with far reaching applications.

Corporate overview:

B-Bridge was established in 2000 by CEO Hiro Masumoto to bring life science products from the United States into the Japanese market. In 2003 Mr. Masumoto co-founded Avocel Inc. with Stanford Professor Mark Kay. Avocel, a siRNA technology company, was later purchased by Benitec Ltd. Also co-founded in 2003 was STREX, Ltd of Japan. Even today, B-Bridge and STREX remain close collaborators to support instrument sales worldwide. B-Bridge has capitalized on its extensive and diverse network of business partners – distributors, suppliers, and business collaborators - to establish four distinct business units. Each business unit plays a unique role in the research and discovery process.
