Shimadzu Corporation was founded in 1875 and headquartered in Kyoto, Japan Shimadzu Corporation is a $2 billion multinational corporation with four major divisions: Analytical & Measuring Instruments, Medical Systems, Industrial Equipment and Aircraft Equipment.
From its inception, Shimadzu Corporation has been investing resources to develop advanced technology to provide solutions for science, medicine, industry, and the environment. Many of the company’s patented innovations have resulted in new discoveries and increased productivity, and have improved the quality of life the world over. In 2000, was established the Genomic Research Center in the U.K. and started contract biological analysis and trials for CO2 fixation technology. In 2001, the company established life sciences laboratories in Kyoto and Tsukuba to carry out medium and long-term R&D for biological instruments and reagents.
In addition, the company actively pursues joint research opportunities with universities, large corporations like Bristol Myers Squibb, and government agencies like the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and non-profit organizations like United Nations University.
The Analytical Instruments Division is one of the world´s largest manufacturers of analytical instrumentation and environmental monitoring equipment. The Division’s high-level, sophisticated products include Chromatographs, Mass Spectrometers, Light Absorption Analysis Systems, and Composition and Surface Analysis Systems. The instruments are indispensable for research, development, and quality control in a variety of fields, including new drug development.
Shimadzu offers a broad range of high-precision testing and measuring technology that is essential for product development.
Shimadzu provides a broad range of diagnostic imaging equipment that includes digital X-ray systems, PET systems, CT scanners and diagnostic ultrasound systems. Shimadzu has developed the direct conversion flat panel detector (FPD) that provides heretofore unavailable high-quality /products_services/analytical_equipment/shimadzu/images. It is also the first in the world to market circulatory organ diagnostic system on which the detector is mounted. Additionally, it has developed a variety of other diagnostic systems that utilize this FPD. Shimadzu is now a leading pioneer of these new types of diagnostic imaging.
Shimadzu has developed a variety of industrial equipment, including semiconductor manufacturing equipment, liquid transmission equipment and hydraulic equipment.
Shimadzu products range from on-board air management systems, flight control systems to cockpit display systems. Shimadzu equipment are also used for engine start up systems and electronic control systems. The company is a market leader for head-up displays in Japan.
Shimadzu Asia Pacific is the Asian subsidiary of Shimadzu Corporation, Japan.
IRAffinity-1 is the high sensitivity and high reliability FTIR with Dynamic Aliment mechanism, diagnostic and Validation program that comply with the European and Japanese Pharmacopoeias and ASTM. The Built-in Auto Dehumidifier can ensure long-term stability of Interferometer and easier maintenance. Pharma report program makes pass/fail judgement with peak positions and peak ratio. This program helps incoming inspections and outgoing inspection for pharmaceutical products. A wide range of accessories can be used for any type of samples, and Auto recognized accessories can change suitable parameters and also record in the log file.
Pharmaceutical industry in recent years is slowly but surely moving towards UHPLC from conventional HPLC in order to improve the resolution and more importantly to increase the through put. The Analytical R&D and even some of the monographs are adopting UHPLC methods. Nexera is currently the only UHPLC system that can withstand highest pressure of 130 MPa. Every module of Nexera is designed to ensure ultra-high speed with equally high precision and accuracy. Nexera can be seamlessly configured in Empower chromatography data system thus assuring complete regulatory compliance and ease of use.
Triple quadrupole Mass Spectrometry is becoming a routine instrument in pharmaceutical industry. Be it drug discovery, validation, CRO, CMO or bio-pharmaceutics, LCMSMS is an essential tool for achieving higher sensitivity and specificity hence becoming choice of instrument for trace level quantitation.
LCSM-8030 is an ultra-fast MS with highest scan speed of 15,000 amu/sec. The patented UFSweeper technology ensures efficient acceleration of ions from collision cell which results in assuring lowest dwell time of MRM transition without compromising sensitivity. Ultra Fast polarity switching of 15 msec and Ultra Fast MRM analysis time makes LCMS-8030 a perfect combination with UHPLC system. The chemically inert heated ion source ensures robust performance even with complex biological matrices.
The GC-2010 Plus is a proven leader in the field of pharmaceuticals to determine residual solvents as main application. FID-2010 Plus equipped with FID detector is becoming the choice in analysis of residual solvents. The instrument delivers best-in-class FID sensitivity with clean detector gas flow and the latest noise reduction technology. The combination with Versa headspace as sample introduction is a cost effective solution to meet all of the guidelines per USP method <467>. GC-2010 Plus is the best solution for pharmaceutical applications with high-precision in trace analysis, high reproducibility and sensitivity.
The GCMS-QP2010 Ultra is part of Shimadzu’s pharmaceutical industry solution for routine quality control. Mass spectrometry (MS) can be used for screening, identification, and can be combined with AOC-20s Autosampler and Versa headspace. With the Autosampler’s capability of handling large sample numbers and various vial types in an automated fashion, it is able to enhance pharmaceutical laboratory productivity and high throughput. GCMS-QP2010 Ultra is one of the most advanced gas chromatography mass spectrometers in the market today. Featuring ultra-fast scan speed and sensitivity at 20,000u/sec, makes it the best choice as complete solution for pharmaceutical applications.
