United States

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

• Balances

• 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.

Application Notes

Cleaning Validation by TOC Analyzer

Cleaning validation ensures that the quantity of residual substances collected from the surfaces of the production-related equipment in pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities is within the permissible limit. Three TOC measurements methods are available to perform validation. This note examines the features of each method to determine which method is most effective.

Measurement of TOC in Electroplating Solution by TOC-L CSH

As the salt concentration in plating solutions is typically more than just a few percent, this could adversely affect direct measurement using a typical combustion catalytic oxidation type TOC analyzer. Therefore, the sample must be diluted before measurement, and because the Shimadzu TOC combustion catalytic oxidation type analyzer is equipped with an automatic dilution feature, high-salt-concentration samples can be measured by automatically diluting the sample. Here, we introduce an example of measurement of a nickel plating solution containing nickel sulfamate using the Shimadzu TOC-L CSH analyzer.
