About Us

Shimadzu Scientific Instruments (SSI) is the American subsidiary of Shimadzu Corporation. Founded in 1875, Shimadzu is a $3 billion multinational corporation with three major divisions: Medical Diagnostics, Aerospace/Industrial, and Analytical Instruments. The Analytical Division is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of analytical instrumentation and environmental monitoring equipment. In addition to Japan, Shimadzu products are manufactured in China, the Philippines, the U.K., and in Portland, Oregon.

Shimadzu initiated a presence in the U.S. in 1963 with an office in New York City. SSI was established in 1975 in Columbia, MD as a distribution center providing analytical solutions to a wide range of laboratories and lab services providers in the Americas.

Today, SSI’s focus has expanded greatly beyond distribution. Steady and controlled growth has seen the opening of nine regional offices across the United States, with technical specialists, service and sales engineers strategically situated throughout the country.

Shimadzu’s growth is a testament to our experience, technological expertise, and customer service/support. We view each customer as a partner and seek to build long-term relationships that benefit both parties. Moving forward, Shimadzu will continue to develop and manufacture analyzers that deliver results faster and more efficiently than ever before to meet the needs of researchers, scientists, and manufacturers around the globe.

FEATURED APPLICATIONS

Analytical and measuring instruments of chemical and petrochemical

In the chemical field, ICP-AES is used for a broad range of analysis in order to manage trace amounts of hazardous metals in the manufacturing process, manage additive elements essential to the functionality of a product, and manage the environment of the entire factory. Therefore, it is desirable to have a robust, highly stable system able to reliably accept the injection of a broad variety of samples, regardless of the type of solvent (aqueous/organic) or the presence of matrices. It is also important to...

Analytical and measuring instruments of environmental

The environmental field requires robust, high-sensitivity analysis capable of complying with regulations in order to always meet the stringent target values that have been established to assure the safety of the water supply and protect the environment. Moreover, in laboratories where more than 100 samples are processed per day, increasing the throughput and saving energy are issues of concern.
