Shimadzu Scientific Instruments (SSI) is the American subsidiary of Shimadzu Corporation, headquartered in Kyoto, Japan. 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.
Headquartered in Columbia, Maryland, SSI was established in 1975 as a distribution center providing analytical solutions to a wide range of laboratories and lab-services providers in the Americas. Today, SSI’s focus is expanded greatly beyond distribution. Steady and controlled growth has seen the opening of nine regional offices across the United States; a state-of-the-art Customer Training and Education Center; Shimadzu U.S.A. Manufacturing, which supplies high-performance liquid chromatographs (HPLC), gas chromatography mass spectrometers (GCMS), and other high-tech products to the U.S. market; and applications laboratories on both coasts.
SSI offers a full line of analytical measurement and testing instrumentation for a broad range of applications in science and industry. Products include:
• Chromatographs (HPLC/UHPLC, GC)
• Mass spectrometers (GC/MS/MS, LC/MS/MS, MALDI)
• Spectrophotometers (FT-IR, Fluorescence, UV-VIS-NIR)
• Atomic spectrometers (AA, ICP)
• X-ray spectrometers (EDX, XRD, XRF)
• Thermal analyzers
• Total Organic Carbon (TOC) analyzers
• Particle size analyzers
• Materials testers.
Key to the processing industry is our online TOC analyzer, the TOC-4200. Providing high-sensitivity, cost-effective measurement of a wide range of water samples, the TOC-4200 supports analyses from 5 mgC/L to 20,000 mgC/L full-scale. In addition, it can measure samples with TOC concentrations from 0 to 1mgC/L, and can be equipped with a variety of pretreatment units to best match a sample’s characteristics. It is the ideal solution for:
• Continuous monitoring of plant water/ boiler water
• Management of treatment plant influent and effluent
• Total pollutant load control regulation applications
• Monitoring TOC removal rate based on EPA regulations
With a vast installed base and preferred vendor status at many institutions, our instruments are used by top researchers across the globe; customers who can count on the stability, experience, and support only Shimadzu offers.
