Innovative Research & Development

At Shimadzu, research and development represents the cornerstone of progress. From its inception, the Shimadzu Corporation has been investing resources to develop advanced technology to provide solutions for science, medicine, industry, and the environment. Many of our patented innovations have resulted in new discoveries and increased productivity, and have improved the quality of life the world over.

Today, Shimadzu continues the tradition as a global leader in the development of solutions for the world’s technology hurdles. In 2000, we established the Genomic Research Center in the U.K. and started contract biological analysis and trials for CO2 fixation technology. In 2001, we established life sciences laboratories in Kyoto and Tsukuba to carry out medium and long-term R&D for biological instruments and reagents. At the Technology Research Laboratories, which consists of five research centers located throughout Japan, we conduct research and development that results in original cutting-edge technology.

In addition, we actively pursue joint research opportunities with universities, large corporations like Bristol Myers Squibb, and government agencies like the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Koichi Tanaka Mass Spectrometry Research Laboratory (located in Kyoto, Japan)

Headed by Koichi Tanaka, awarded the 2002 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, this laboratory conducts research for the development of new mass spectrometry techniques and equipment for analyzing biological macromolecules such as proteins. The aim is to broaden the scope of mass spectrometry by actively pursuing researchers and by participating in joint research projects with leading universities, research institutes, and corporations. Under the guidance of Mr. Tanaka, the spirit of discovery and foundation for success continues at Shimadzu. If you would like to read more about Mr. Tanaka and his Nobel Prize winning research.

FEATURED PRODUCTS

Shimadzu - EDX-LE - Energy Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometer

EDX-LE is an X-ray fluorescence spectrometer designed specifically for screening elements regulated by RoHS/ELV directives. The model uses a detector (Si-PIN semiconductor detector) that does not require liquid nitrogen, thereby achieving lower operation cost and easier maintenance. Automated analysis functions improve operability without sacrificing its high level of inspection reliability.

Shimadzu - ICPE-9000 - Plasma Emission Spectrophotometer

The simultaneous ICPE-9000 utilizes a large-scale one-inch CCD detector with increased pixel size and an Echelle spectrometer to enable high-speed measurement with the highest resolution of any system on the market. An extremely stable vacuum spectrometer equipped with semiconductor detectors, the first of its kind in an ICP emission spectrometer, demonstrates stable, sensitive performance over extended periods. The ICPE-9000’s innovative, vertical Mini ...
