Shimadzu, one of the world’s fastest growing mass spectrometry companies, today announced the introduction of the Shimadzu LCMS-8060 triple quadrupole mass spectrometer. The new LCMS-8060 is designed to push the limits of LC/MS/MS quantitation for applications requiring the highest sensitivity and robustness delivering a meaningful solution for
Consumer, product and environmental safety are the most important issues for manufacturing companies all over the world, no matter whether in industrial, emerging or developing countries. These challenges contribute to the bigger picture of preserving the basis of life for mankind, flora and fauna as well as living in harmony with nature and the environment.
Each manufacturing company hosts a laboratory for ingredients, materials and product analysis as well as quality control. These labs are equipped with high-tech analytical instrumentation systems for detection of residues, components and substances.
Shimadzu covers the whole bandwidth of analytical instrumentation consisting of chromatography (HPLC, GC), mass spectrometry (LC-MS, GC-MS, MALDI-TOF MS), spectroscopy (UV/VIS, FTIR, AAS, ICP) and sum parameters (TOC). These product lines are complemented by weighing technologies, testing machines and the biotechnology business division. Shimadzu’s analytical instruments are used in the chemical, pharmaceutical and biotechnology laboratories, in the food and semiconductor industry, in research and development as well as in process and quality control.
The product portfolio has grown organically, links many disciplines and has its roots in the company’s innovativeness based on the creative talent of its scientists and engineers, such as Genzo Shimadzu Jr. who was awarded as one of Japan’s ten greatest ever inventors, and Koichi Tanaka, the 2002 Laureate of the Nobel Prize in Chemistry.
