Notification

March 31st, 2020

Dear Valued Customers,

FUJIFILM Wako Diagnostics U.S.A. Corporation is closely monitoring and responding to the evolving COVID-19 pandemic to minimize its impact on our workforce, products and supply chain. Our number one priority is the safety of our customers, employees and the broader community.
On March 13, 2020 President Trump declared a National Emergency in the United States. Due to this and in efforts to assure the safety of our employees and clients, we made the decision to postpone all non-essential travel until further notice.
In response to the California shelter-in-place order, our Mountain View employees are working remotely to support business operations. Our Richmond facility is currently operational, processing and shipping orders, in accordance with the most updated order issued by the state of Virginia. This facility is implementing CDC’s recommendations to work remotely as much as possible and setting staggered work schedules to protect employees and the community. Our manufacturing plant in Japan is operational as well.
We continue to closely monitor the conditions domestically and globally and plan to keep communication channels open as the situation evolves.
Thank you for your understanding and please do not hesitate to contact us at wakodx-customerservice@fujifilm.com or direct at (877)714-1924, if you have any concerns or questions.
Sincerely,
Fujifilm Wako Diagnostics Management Team
