Shimadzu is one of the worldwide leading manufacturers of analytical instrumentation. Its equipment and systems are used as essential tools for quality control of consumer goods and articles of daily use, in health care as well as in all areas of environmental and consumer protection.

Spectroscopy, chromatography, environmental analysis, balances, biotechnology and material testing make up a homogeneous yet versatile offering. Along with many “industry first” technologies and products Shimadzu has created and invented since 1875, there has also been the exceptional awarding of the 2002 Nobel Prize for Chemistry to Shimadzu engineer Koichi Tanaka for his outstanding contributions in the field of mass spectrometry.

Shimadzu’s analysers and equipment are applied in the chemical, petrochemical and pharmaceutical industry, life sciences and biotech, cosmetics, semiconductor and nutrition industry as well as in the flavors and fragrances business. Research institutes, privately run laboratories, administrations and universities complete the list of clients. The systems are used in routine and high-end applications, process and quality control as well as R&D.

Spectrophotometers and chromatographs

Shimadzu provides a broad range of instruments and solutions for the pharmaceutical industry: basic analytical instruments such as spectrophotometers, sophisticated technology like chromatographs for conventional and fast separation; mass spectrometers as well as instruments for determination of total organic carbon in ultra-pure water.

The instruments are used in research and development, quality control and on-line monitoring. Special system solutions have been developed together with key researchers from these industries. The units have been designed for maximum productivity and meeting the demands of these laboratories.

Shimadzu HPLC and UHPLC systems are controlled by all leading chromatography data systems in order to fit into existing IT environments.

Coupling methods

Most modern technologies are in the focus of research: UHPLC – and Fast GC(MS), advanced coupling methods such as multi-dimensional GC and comprehensive LCXLC(MS) and GCXGC(MS) provide tools for the highest resolution and easiest separation of complex samples.

Customers may select from a wide range in order to obtain a solution tailored to their individual needs. In this way, Shimadzu has become the only supplier of the whole range of analytical instruments whose product offer has grown constantly. At the same time, Shimadzu is the market- or technological leader in almost all areas.

Shimadzu is focused on top quality when developing products, including ease of operation, optimum service and an appropriate price/performance ratio. The company manufactures according to internationally renowned quality standards, e.g. Pharmacopeia, ISO, FDA, GLP and GMP. As a global player, Shimadzu operates production facilities and distribution centers in 76 countries. Shimadzu’s success is based on more than 9,000 employees worldwide. For over 40 years the European headquarters has been located in Germany.

The system combines two different mass spectrometric tools, an ion trap and a TOF, resulting in capabilities beyond any single mass analysing technology.

Nexera MP (SIL-30ACMP)

The new SIL-30ACMP Multiplate Autosampler used in the Nexera MP is best suited for LC/MS analysis and has the industry-best micro-volume injection repeatability, the world’s highest injection speed and the lowest carryover. Combining the Nexera MP with Shimadzu’s LCMS-8030 Triple Quadrupole Mass Spectrometer or the LCMS-2020 Single Quadrupole Mass Spectrometer creates a system for quick analysis of multiple samples with high accuracy.
